Three of the party wake after a night of heavy drinking with a satyr showing the early, but highly visible, symptoms of a spectacularly embarrassing cross species plague ( horns and.... Hair. in places. Sure the church of Loki can cure you! For a price. Next moon there's going to be an auction at the guild house that the duke is using to raise funds for a border skirmish... They'd like you to break in and replace two of the larger items with fakes. It turns out there's more than just artworks being kept there...

3. "Pweeze, Mr. adventuwer, find my puppies for me!" - adorable little girl on the street

I'm tempted to incude this one in a game at some point just to she how badly the players mess it up.

8) There's a loose monster. There's a reward on its head. Go get it.

Oldest side quest in the book.

9) Acquire 10 of the items from each of the previous threads, determined randomly. If not acquired in alphabetical order, the deity of random chance hexes each player's die rolls for the rest of their adventuring career.

10. One I've actually used: a man and a pixie have fallen madly in love with each other because they each put on one of a matched set of rings that a wizard couple had used as wedding rings, and powerfully enchanted to cast a mutual charm effect on the wearers (the pixie wears hers as a belt). They don't want to get the rings off... can you help with their size problem?

11) This works best with a large male party ( or one with henchmen/followers)

The merchants are used to pirates, but their sailors surrender quickly during Bacchanalia. You see, that's the Amazon mating season , where they capture men for breeding throughout the festival.

Money is being lost!

Your party's job is to keep the Amazons, um...occupied and happy until the end of the festival so they don't snatch any mariners .

12. A wealthy merchant is strolling through the streets with his new ring when he trips. Ring falls off his finger and rolls into the gutter. Your task: explore the sewer and find the ring! (He'll compensate you generously for returning it to him)

13. A druid tells you that goblins have been killing townspeople with weapons that mimic animal claws. The townspeople blame the druids. Someone who's not a druid needs to present them with evidence that it's not animals.

15. A dwarf approaches your party's elf and claims to be an elf born in a dwarf's body. Until he can earn enough money for his polymorph potion, he wants to get ready by learning all things elven: how to climb trees, spot secret doors, sleep with his eyes open...

16. An old fisherman with a hook hand is telling the story of how a monster fish bit off his hand, and is in the lake to this day, along with the expensive ring he was wearing on that hand.

17. The PCs find a baby with a note in his blankets saying "deliver this child to [location] and you shall be rewarded, for he is the chosen one." The 'e' is unfinished, and below that is a bloodstain.

18. A noblemanperson needs a date to the upcoming ball. Oh, wait, no escort missions? Fine, the nobleperson just wants someone to cuddle with after someone to blame the assassination attempt / robbery / whatever on.

A group of farmers come to you. They are plagued by bandits and need your help to drive them off. They give you a basket containing everthing they own of value. Your bard spent more on his last tavern bill...
