What can be said of the most prolific and archetypal love story in Western culture? That it is full of passion and tragedy, certainly. That it has moments of high comedy and skewering philosophical insights, most assuredly. But will it make a good role-playing game scenario? The author submits that it will. After all, it shares several traits with many a good adventure tale: there are the rival families, Capulet and Montague, waging an overt war on the streets and in the alleys of Verona; there is the love-struck hero, and the fair damsel imprisoned in their familial loyalties; there is intrigue, as the young lovers seek to hide their romance from the public eye, friend and foe alike; there is even the implication that supernatural forces are at work to shape the destinies of the “star-crossed lovers”.
