Modern Day Theme Inspired RPG Plots for Fantasy

Watermarked PDF
Suggested Price $0.50

I was inspired by reading news articles and the themes our society is dealing with today like planned parenthood, gun control, animal rights etc. and considered they would make nice pastiches if adopted to RPG plots.

Please note I've written all of the plot examples for D&D-like fantasy settings.


Animal rights: A local ruler organizes brutal gladiatorial fights in which scores of wild animals are killed. The spirits of the forest want vengeance.

Refugees: A famous bard is seeking refuge. He is persecuted in his home country as he made slanderous tunes about the local ruler.

Social inequality: All of the healers work only for the wealthy and poor are left to die in the gutter. There are a few healers wanting to help everyone in need but they are being threatened.

The themes covered in this title are:

  • Adultery
  • Weapon control
  • Secularism
  • Has-been celebreties
  • Animal rights
  • Technology changing the world
  • Refugees and immigration
  • Work-life conditions
  • Climate change and environmentalism
  • Drug policy
  • Social inequality
  • Planned parenthood and abortion
  • Freedom of speech
  • NEW Modern medicine and medical care
  • NEW Justice system
  • NEW Educational system
  • NEW Euthanasia

All of the themes have four RPG fantasy plot adaptations of modern day phenomena.

Note: the content has been created with PowerPoint and printed in pdf-format. It has been a concious choice to keep the copy in concise format.

Please note this is Pay What You Want with a suggested nominal price and full document as PDF preview. If you really like this and think you benefit of it, consider leaving a small donation! Thank you.

The idea is great and I get the author's encouragement to innovate more. Could be a bit longer and more varied in theme but for this price I cannot complain. [...]

First, I would simply recommend getting Mr. Arto Saari's "All Think Different BUNDLE". I'd value the bundle at about $5. As of early-November 2017, this is really the weakest of all the author's current products. Cut and paste headline [...]

A slideshow with brief ideas for role-playing game plot ideas. Brief and to the point. One warning: the ideas are presented with a generic Dungeons-and-Dragons type fantasy in mind. (Many ideas talk about monsters, or farming, or shape-shifters, or mul [...]

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.
