The Running of the Bulls is a sport celebrated in Spain (especially Pamplona) where people try to outrun a herd of bulls released in a narrow street. Accidents are common, and sometimes they are fatal.
Game and Story Use
- In a fantasy setting, the runners might not be pursued by a herd of bulls, but a herd of minotaurs.
- Or perhaps the bull running tradition dates back to a historic incident involving a herd of minotaurs.
- In fantasy and science fiction settings, other potentially dangerous creatures might substitute for the bulls.
- It is possible, in a modern-day occult setting, that the Running of the Bulls has some occult significance - perhaps those killed by the bulls are unwitting sacrifices, their life force spent to keep an ancient horror bound… or to awaken it.
