I'm running a campaign that is set near a darkwood forest. The town is run by the nearby lumber company. The lumber company is already disinterested with the welfare of its workers. (Profits over people) A few of my players have expressed an interest in dealing with the town leadership. I'm looking for a way to help showcase how rotten the lumber company leadership is. Things I'm considering are:
- Having the workers get paid in company script, wooden coins that can only be paid at company owned stores.
- Having the workers live in company owned housing. Injured workers are expelled from their homes. Rent is automatically deducted from wages.
- The party will find that the company's bookkeeper is doctoring payroll logs to cheat workers out of wages.
- The cleric has extended family that live within the forest. I'm thinking there will be a confrontation between the family and lumber company.
