d20 Modern Adventures
Faint Transmissions
Grim Frequencies, Part 2
By Rich Redman

A garbled, static-filled transmission in a foreign language emanates from a radio's speakers and tells the heroes to stop a vehicle from crossing a certain set of railroad tracks. But where does this transmission come from, and why can't anyone else hear it? Find out in Faint Transmissions, an adventure for 2nd-level characters by Rich Redman


Soft electronic whines and discordant buzzes pop from the speakers of a radio in a consumer electronics store, interrupting a voice that whispers a message. "The railroad tracks cross Martin Luther King Avenue at a certain point," says the voice. "In 20 minutes, a Hummer H2 will approach those tracks from the north. You must stop it from crossing the tracks until after the train passes. Do not fail."
