dead sexy

Society celebrates festivals of passion (May Day, Lei Day, Rusalka Week) and remembrance (Lemuria, Pentecost, Zartusht-no-diso).  Where cultures revere pale beauty as a symbol of power (no tilling fields for you!) and a connection between the realms of love and death is found.  Add to this the horror spawned by taboos around dead bodies and you've got some pretty potent gaming material.  How will characters deal with undead with motivations other than dietary ones?
  1. Be My Persephone - An undead known in life for their lusts abducts someone to enact them on.  Can the characters rescue the victim before a fate worse than death claims them?
  2. One last kiss? - The handsome prince has gained an obsessed admirer who dies unrequited.  Three nights later, the prince learns for some, death is no barrier to their passion and seeks outside help.
  3. The Morning After - Someone wakes up undead with no idea how they became that way after a night of passion. They need to find out how this happened.  Can the characters solve the mystery?
