The "air" inside bubble wrap is a mild but totally addictive narcotic.

Casablanca: 1942

The players are Allied agents assigned to make contact with Admiral Darlan and convince him to defect. They are to meet a representative in an establishment called "The Blue Parrot".

As it happens they have a native guide, an American expatriate turned resistance fighter that goes only by the name of "Rick".

Agents of R.E.L.I.C: The age of myth has come and gone and in it's wake has left artifacts of great power, and in the modern day a secret organization is charged with the duty of collecting them in order to keep them out of the hands of those who would use them for evil. Basically James bond meets Indiana Jones.

Or the premise of The Librarian series, or Warehouse 13.

Visit the Plane of Elemental Music, where the worst thing to be is a one-note character!

If it's "elemental", that might be the best thing. Interesting music is usually a more complex composite of individual musical elements. "Composite" is kind of the opposite of "elemental".

Besides, the Plane is still being torn apart by internal wars over which of the Elements of the Notes should be considered the root frequency (leading factions being for Elemental A or Elemental C), as well as all the dissonance created by trying to round up an army that either is or isn't in just intonation with their leader. And that was before the Cabal stuck their nose in with their A = 432 Hz nonsense to sir the pot.

Well, I can see the idea struck a chord with you. There's just something there that resonates with people.

The Allies have just bridged the Rhine and are reducing border strongholds one by one. The PCs are part of an OSS team assigned to infilterate Germany and prepare for the invasion. Possible plot threads include capturing fleeing Party officials, repressing the rumored "Werewolf" terrorist organization, negotiating with local leaders for surrender, and intrigue with the NKVD agents coming from the other direction with similar missions.
