I’ve run one one-shot in recent years, and it was based on making things up, not on a published scenario. I had picked up Hellcats and Hockeysticks (an RPG based on St. Trinians) and decided to try it out. So I made up a set of pre-gens, with space for a couple of points of customization, and invited four of my regular women players and a woman who’s a fellow player in a Call of Cthulhu campaign to try it out (they played a daughter of the Russian mafiya, a descendant of samurai, a horse-mad girl from Virginia, an artistic girl, and a working class sports hooligan—the player decided her name was “Tanqueray” for what her mother was drunk on when she was conceived, shortened to “Tank”). I had some NPCs with agendas available, but most of what happened was the PCs stirring up trouble in the classic St. Trinians fashion and me running frantically ahead of them laying down track in front of where they had decided to go. . . .
