Roleplaying adventure hooks

Looking for inspiration for your next roleplaying adventure? Then look no further! We’ve put together these three adventure hooks to give you some ideas for your next gaming session. Enjoy!
The pet shop of horrors
A purveyor of exotic animals has been selling evil, monstrous creatures to unsuspecting villagers. The monsters are wreaking havoc. Both they and the travelling salesman must be stopped!
A number of local villages have been menaced by various monsters and awful creatures. After a short investigation it is discovered that these creatures were sold by a travelling salesman to unsuspecting villages (many believing they were buying more domesticated animals). The monsters need to be rounded up and then the salesman must be tracked down and stopped.
A gateway to nowhere
As you pass between two trees you are magically teleported to a strange place. With no idea as to how to get back, it’s survive or die.
Whilst adventuring, the party is suddenly transported to an unknown place. Unable to get back the way they came, they must find a way back and find out who or what is behind the teleportation. No doubt their motives aren’t entirely benign.
Subterfuge at the circus
The circus is in town and it’s causing a stir – And not in a good way. They’re up to something and there’s only one way to find out what. Sign up!
A traveling circus has stopped in the outskirts of town. While everyone was excited at first, now they’re not so sure. Townsfolk have started to go missing and the circus acts are strange and secretive. Whatever they’re up to, it must be stopped. However, the circus is only in town one more day so the adventurers will have to sign up and travel with them if they’re to stand any chance of succeeding. Who wants to be the lion tamer?
