Rather Useful Tables for Chronicles of the Outlands

This is a wholly new, sort of, set of tables that are not required but do come in handy when running Chronicles of the Outlands. As with everything in free-style role-play, use what you find useful. I use these in my own campaign quite often. The booklet includes the Digression tables alluded to in the other rulesets, a handy thing with which to threaten your players. It also has two more encounter settings to use inside your adventures

Included herein are twenty new Quick and Dirty tables to add event driven action to resolve the following situations of mission inconsequence encounters:

Traversing the Frontier

Q&D Cautious Discourse

Q&D Challenging Willful Ignorance

Q&D Foraging

Q&D Groundwork for Battle (Avoid Hazards)

Q&D Backtrack (w/o Loss)

Q&D Recognizing Set-Back (No Overreaction)

Q&D Windfall or Agony (against Spectres)

Q&D Raising the Mood (to welcoming)

Q&D No Stone Unturned (Scouring the Land)

Q&D Finding Purpose (Renewing Hope)


City-State Stopover

Q&D Grovel with Dignity

Q&D Due Diligence and Drudgery

Q&D Surviving the Hangover

Q&D Serve using Reason and Flattery

Q&D Peaceful Disentanglement

Q&D Appeal to the Masses

Q&D Scout, Hunt and Trail

Q&D Games and Sport

Q&D When Speed is of the Essence

Q&D Bonding and Fitness

This may be the last of the source materials for Outlands for a few years, or forever should I keel over and die. I am moving on to another favorite genre, Sci-Fi. As I promised long and long again for Cutlass, a campaign booklet for Outlands is being written. Yet the release date depends much on George RR Martin’s timely completion…kidding. Cut me some slack, I’m old – started in this racket, circa 1975, with the mimeograph magazine, the Reinforcements. Find a copy of that; I dares yeah.

Product Information
File Size:
4.71 MB
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.
