Pathfinder Cuphead

Okay "Cuphead" might not be the best description of this game concept but here it is.

5 years ago, your PCs made a deal with an eldritch power in exchange for something for each of you, it can be anything, wealth, nobility, etc, work it into your backstory. However the deal was that in 5 years, she would show up and demand something from the five of you back.

She shows up and gives you an.....almost mundane request. One of her cults lost an item of importance to her 2 years ago, and now she wants you to find it.

How hard could it be right?

What in the name of Gygax is a cuphead?

Also does it have to be the PC who made the deal? Could it be a family member, mentor, or friend who has passed away and bequeathed the thing, whatever it may be, and the responsibility to the PC?

As a premise to bring a part together it works pretty well. It is certainly better than "You meet in a bar..." but where do you go from there?

It's a videogame about two brothers who make a deal with the devil, and get roped into collecting soul contracts for him to pay off their debt.

Seems straightforward as a concept.

Top hat and cane of course...

However to not derail the thread. The concept of "the devil" coming back to collect their debt owed is pretty standard fare. Pretty easy to do. Question would be if you want to actually have the game be Cuphead, as the characters are in a world like a 30's cartoon.

Nah, I was actually planning it to be more lovecraft lite. Where the item is something seemingly mundane, but things go crazy fast for a mix of comedy and horror.

And of course when the PCs succeed, the Eldritch beings, offers to make the deal AGAIN. But will the next task be as easy as this one was? And she didn't back stab you....

Lovecraft Lite? Sign me up!
