Plot Hooks from… The American Top 40?

In his ongoing efforts to find ideas to keep up with the quick witted teen-agers he GMs for.  Stev, the Vulcan Game-Master looks outside the box for plot hooks and game ideas.  Today he’s seeing what the top ten pop chart singles in America will yeild for inspiration. 

*note* these are the top ten songs as of April 5, 2009

1  The All American Rejects – Gives You Hell
Demons are following your party

2  Britney Spears – Circus
When your party enters the next village they are mistaken for an expected troupe of traveling minstrels.

3  Flo Rida – Right Round
In the Dungeon every right turn actually send the team back to a spot they’ve already visited.

4  Kelly Clarkson – My Life Would Suck Without You
The party finds a magical object if the team ever loses it they begin to experience annoying bad luck.

5  Kanye West – Heartless
The party needs to fight the villians from Disney’s Kingdom Hearts video game.

6  Pink – Sober
The party is immune to the affects of alcohol, having been cursed/blessed by a Tee-Totaling Wizard

7  Lady Gaga – Poker Face
The ability to bluff is the only way to beat the guardian of the treasure.

8  The Fray – You Found Me
An annoying <insert small magical creature or genre specific equivalent> keeps popping up (ie Mr. Mytzlplyk), just to annoy the party.

9  T.I. – Dead and Gone
Somebody the party thinks they killed comes back for vengence.

10 Taylor Swift – Love Story
Like Jason and the Argonauts the team comes across Sirens, however these Sirens are in the tavern.
