Situations For Tabletop Roleplaying


Situations For Tabletop Roleplaying is a compilation of ten situation-building tools.  Those situation-builders are:

  1. Long Knives is used to create situations for intrigue that the characters are tied to.
  2. Broken Places builds situations where a villain of some sort has taken over an organization.
  3. The Quest is used to generate adventures that will take the characters out on significant journeys
  4. Transgression is a generator for social movements and the resistance to those movements.
  5. Predator Souls is a means for making monster-hunting scenarios for your games.
  6. The Estate assists in creating estates that characters can acquire, trouble included.
  7. The Devils We Know is for situations where one evil keeps another contained.
  8. Expeditions covers journeys by multiple means, into odd places, to seek something (the fill-in-the-blanks sheet for this has been available for some time; this updated version includes an article on using it and examples).
  9. One Of Us is for when a player character is infected by some manner of changed being; vampire, lycanthrope, or something stranger.
  10. Futurity is for covering situations where something new has been invented, and things are about to get troublesome around that.

Is this also useful for solo/solitaire gaming, for a player without an available GM?

The link to "Fundamentals" goes back to the "Situations" page instead. We've got recursion here.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
