General Easter and D&D

Is anybody planning to include any Easter-specific events in their game this weekend? I am thinking about having a bunny (or possibly a kobold wearing bunny ears) deliver a basket of healing potions -- one for each player. Any other ideas?

One year I did have the PCs hired by a figure to retrieve a set of 10 fossilized dragon eggs (one for each charmatic and metallic dragons. They were delivered to a rich worshipper of Asmodeus who wanted to sacrifice them to Asmodeus at sunrise when a Pit Fiend arrived. The PCs arrived at the home 8 minutes before sunrise and had to find as many hidden eggs and escape from the home before the Pit Fiend arrived. It was essentially 80 rounds of combat, continuous, with a goal of searching the manor until all 10 eggs were found. They found 4 and were still in the house when the Pit Fiend arrived. They were 6th level. It turned ugly.
 

Almost...but we won't be playing this weekend: we're delaying a week, so our next Saturday session will be on the 18th. But the D&D PCs are in a cross-over with Gamma World and in the next session they'll be up against a group of Hoops: humanoid bunny rabbits. It wasn't intended to sync up with Easter - it just kind of fell into place. (And if the PCs don't stop the Hoops in time, they'll get to the power source to activate a giant metal robot they've kind of been worshiping, after having welded giant bunny ears onto it to make it look more like them.) It's also an opportunity for the PCs to rescue a group of four jackalopes, who are being used as beasts of burden by the Hoops.

Title? I don't need no stinkin' title.
I usually do something for Halloween but hadn't thought about Easter.

On the other hand I was trying to think of options for my next game. Hmm...maybe Puck needs make an appearance and instead of turning someone into a donkey (Mid Summer Nights Dream) go rabbit instead. To stop the curse they need to recover brass dragon eggs. :unsure:

Two years ago, the PCs in my game were attacked by a squadron of Peeps, represented on the board, not surprisingly, by Peeps. When a Peep attacked, it always knocked the target prone, but didn't do any damage. The only way to stop the onslaught was for the players to grab the Peeps and eat them. At least that was the plan. However, after only a couple of the Peeps had been dispatched, one of the players asserted that his PC cast the spell Summon Easter Bunny. The Easter Bunny appeared and led the remaining Peeps over the hill and into the distance, out of sight, meaning that the DM had to consume the rest. That'll teach me.

I wouldn't eat one of those things if you paid me; god knows what they're made out of? Don't ask me what possessed her to do this, but I had a friend back in the 90s who filled up her bathtub and dumped in a bunch of Peeps. It took them 3-4 days to "dissolve", and I use the term loosely. It just ended up a floating gelatinous blob of pink, yellow and blue sugar. I think it was just some drunken experiment to see what would happen that only resulted in a disgusting mess. That'll teach her.

Yep, you can only get rid of them completely with Wish.

You are supposed to go into the woods, locate and return with a bunny rabbit that lays chocolate eggs - no the Cadbury kind, not that kind ! The catch is that unbeknownst to your quest-giver, the Monty Python bunny lives on the opposite side of the clearing.

You could always throw one of these at the players...
