In the November Update for the 2016 Preseason of Pandemic Play, we introduced the Rag and Bone Man to the framework of the scenario. This special NPC, that can be introduced by individual Action Rangers in their own interesting ways, provides a uniquely dynamic interactive way for registered groups to acquire new and useful items they might otherwise not have access to (or would be too much risk for them to acquire on their own). Additionally, Players and Action Rangers alike can help to influence what impact the Rag and Bone Man will have on their games in future updates through interaction on special posts we will put out on our social media pages.
Each month on our social media pages at Facebook and Twitter we will release special posts related to the Rag and Bone Man with the hashtag #RaBM. Via these posts Players and Action Rangers will be able to influence subsequent updates related to the location that is raided which will theme the items available, the number of items that are actually acquired and made available by altering their capacity, and unlock potential future locations that might be raided next. This will be done by Commenting (Voting on Twitter), Liking, and Sharing the posts.
Getting Cold Out There!
The chill begins to set in across much of the globe as November presses on, but spirits are lifted as the Rag and Bone Man comes to visit. He approaches cautiously, pulling his cart and followed by his trusty dog. It takes little time before everyone calms their nerves and some bartering gets underway. Once the normal business formalities are handled, the Rag and Bone Man begins to prepare his cart for departure. Just before everyone parts to go their own ways, the man pipes up in a gravely voice worn from years of smoking.
“Things are starting to look pretty bleak out there, supplies are gonna be hot commodities very soon. I’ll be coming back around a little later, so hopefully we can do business together in the future – you all seem like fine folks after all.”
He shifts his weight momentarily, producing a pack of cigarettes and a lighter from his pocket. He places a cigarette between his lips and sparks it to life with the flame, letting out a plume of smoke in a sigh of slight relief. His hand wraps around the handle of the cart as he prepare to set off.
“Tell you what, before I go I have something of an offer for you…”
