Kobolds Ate the Baby! (and Other Urban Fantasy Myths)
What about Urban Myths for a fantasy setting? (which of course, don't have to be urban at all) They can add some nice background material, especially if you had a list of like 20, and each starting character knew one or two. A handful of the myths could even have the reality of the situation be worse than the myth itself.
So maybe Kobolds didn't eat the baby - but a cult of evil cannibals serving their dark lord are stealing babies on the night of the harvest moon for their rituals, and the players may just stumble into their plans. The players have a chance to not only be heroes, but explain away an urban myth.
Now I need to build a list...
