Plot Hooks

The Haunted Hairbrush: Strange occurrences plague the salon, with whispers of a haunted hairbrush that seems to have a mind of its own. Patrons report hairdos being undone, styles changing spontaneously, and even glimpses of ethereal figures in the mirror. The barbers recruit adventurers to investigate the supernatural phenomenon and put the restless spirit to rest.   The Stylist's Secret: Snips Clippington holds a hidden past, unbeknownst to the customers and staff. The barbers become entangled in a web of intrigue as an enigmatic figure from Snips' history resurfaces, threatening to expose a long-kept secret that could shake the foundations of the city's nobility. The adventurers must assist in protecting Snips' reputation.   The Mystic Mirror: A mystical mirror arrives at the barber shop, capable of reflecting an individual's true nature. However, it begins to reveal unsettling truths about those who gaze upon it, causing chaos and turmoil among the clientele. The barbers enlist the adventurers to investigate the mirror's origins and its connection to an ancient prophecy.   The Stylish Thieves: A notorious band of thieves targets "Curl Up and Dye," stealing enchanted hair accessories and magical grooming tools. The adventurers are hired to uncover the identity of the thieves and retrieve the stolen treasures.   The Empathic Hairstylist: An enigmatic figure known as the "Empathic Hairstylist" offers their services exclusively to the wealthiest and most influential individuals. Patrons who receive their mystical haircuts find themselves under a strange enchantment, altering their personalities and behaviour. Snips tasks the adventurers with unmasking the empathic hairstylist and breaking the enchantment's hold on their clients.
