A band of rowdy German mercenaries are making trouble in eastern France. Local nobles who have attempted to 'pacify' them have been humiliated, injured, and even killed. They have been making their way towards Troyes, burning, looting and generally behaving in a most ungentlemanly manner. Are these just drunken louts on an extended binge? Or is this a reconnaissance in force as a prelude to an Imperial invasion?

The Salon of courtesan Marion Delorme is one of the most famous in Paris - she is said to have been a lover of the late Duke of Buckingham and even the Cardinal himself! It seems however, that someone believes she knows too much. She hires the musketeers (who seem to be without any pocket money at this time)as bodyguards (and what a body to guard!) and investigators to find out who is trying to have her killed.

The musketeers are given a tip-off that a thief who stole secret documents off a Spanish agent in Paris is looking to sell them to the highest bidder. The information could be very useful to France in their war against Spain and the musketeers endeavour to apprehend the thief and "acquire" the documents free of charge.

Having heard that the thief is at a local tavern the musketeers arrive only to find that a group of the Cardinal's Guard are also there with similar intentions. With the musketeers hoping to impress their king and the guards hoping to impress the cardinal a brawl ensures. Who will win and will they still be able to gain possession of the important documents?

As the musketeers carouse in a particularly seedy bar in a particularly seedy part of Paris, their revelries are interrupted by a swarm of rats, enormous in size and ferocity. People hurl bottles, knives and tankards at the beasts, who bite and tear at everything from the tables to the patrons. Retreating almost as quickly as they arrived, the rats disappear into a great hole in the basement leading to the sewers. What drove these rats above ground, and how did they get so enormous? As rumors of similar eruptions reach the ears of the King, an armed inspection of the underground is in order.

One of your band of musketeers (PC), has been asked to join the Cardinal's Guards. They are most persistent in their invitation and it does not seem like no is an answer.

A bidding war for the lucrative contract to tailor musketeer uniforms has just finished. High quality, stylish garments, and no small amount of bribery to well-placed musketeers, has gotten Alphonse Benoit the contract. Benoit professes a great love of the King and a desire to one day become one of his exclusive tailors. At a group fitting for a long-overdue updating of the classic uniform, a young Gascon musketeer accuses Benoit's son and assitant of being assassins who killed his father for loyalty to the crown. Could this be the tip of a deadly needle stitching a plot against the King?

Bonus point awarded for using giant rats. Smile

Thanks to you guys and your stirling efforts, we've now hit #80!! Everyone should be proud of their contribution so far. A small few never made the cut for various reasons, but everyone has at least one entry and is duly credited.

Does that imply the remaining 20 seeds should involve R.O.U.S.s?

No. One is enough to sate my love of giant rats. Smile

Giant rats do exist. They do. So do faeries and the Easter Bunny. Not so sure about Father Christmas, though he may be Odin in disguise.

Anyway, thought I'd share one of my contributions...

A character is summoned before an elderly relative on his death bed. In rare lucid moments, the old man keeps saying he is sorry, though he will not, or cannot, elucidate on what crime or sin he may have committed. In the remaining moments before his (natural) death, he passes the character a slim notebook filled with columns of numbers and asks him to make amends for the past. What terrible secret does the code hold, and why is a third-party so keen to take possession of it?

With the heat of July, rumours of a ghostly female appearing in the Place de Greve make their rounds. Reports triple with the recognition of the figure as the shade of Leonora Galigai. The King grows worried, and on July 8th, falls ill with one of his many maladies. M.de Treville exhorts the musketeers to distract the King with sport and a military review tour, but to also double the guard and investigate his fear of possible assassination.

Is the next Ubiquity game going to be about Willard and Ben or the Secret of Nimh?

Trying to figure out the best way to solve and use the code would drive my players nuts. Absoulutely nuts.

Excellent historical tie-in, there!

It is late October and Spain has occupied the town of Corbie since August. The musketeers join their regiment and the rest of the 50,000 French troops at the Seige of Corbie. They are given a secret mission to gain access to the library of Corbie Abbey and remove the Church History of Hegesippus before the Spanish realise what they have in their possession.

Upon entering Corbie the musketeers quickly deduce some major weaknesses in the Spanish defense. Now the musketeers have to decide whether they want to exploit the Spanish defenses and bring the seige to a quick end or protect the priceless works of Hegesippus; to attempt both may mean complete failure. Save thousands of French lives or incur the serious displeasure of Cardinal Richelieu for not obeying his orders and losing possession of one the most valued works on the history of the Christian Church. It may seem an easy decision but is it really?
