Things That Went Wrong While You Were Away


While you were away all sorts of things went wrong. The King was assassinated and the council of merchants now rules the town, your family was banished to the sewers, and that unused magical sword you sold to the item shop is revealed to be cursed and haunted, and now its new owner wishes to take over the world. What can we say, an adventurer’s life is always filled with, well, adventures.

When the heroes return to a known location, every change in the status quo helps impart the sense that the world is a dynamic place and things evolve even without the characters’ presence.

The ;Three Suggestions... ;series is meant to give players and GMs some ;interesting ;and roleplay-provoking ideas, for use in all sorts of settings. Each set of suggestions is also ;accompanied ;by a new or variant rule, for use in either ;Fifth Edition ;or ;Dungeon World. ;

Check out the bundles, all suggestions in one place: Dungeon World bundle, 5e bundle

I'm confused as to what this is. I get the premise, but is this a big list, a random table generator, tips on how to write your own?

Like with the rest of the Three Suggestions series (, it's a collection of three main concepts, disected into smaller ideas and suggestsions for implementations. Here, for example, the three categories are "something from outside", for invasions, forces of nature, and the like; "something for within", for changes in government, important occasions, and major changes (such as running out of a vital resource); and "something personal", about things that might involve specifically your character. It's lots of ideas that help you find interesting things to do with these suggestions.

The stats say this pdf is 0 pages long?
How big is this, as I'm really interested :)

All PDFs of this series are between 4-5 pages long; about one for intro, and about one per suggestion. Hope you enjoy!

Original electronic
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.
