Adventure Generator 1 (Director's Cut)


This Adventure Generator is a reusable toolkit for any tabletop fantasy roleplaying system or setting. With only a few die rolls, you’ll have an outline for an exciting story with clear objectives and a distinct beginning, middle, and end. From there, you can customize it to fit your world, your player characters, and your style of play. No generic, single-sentence plot hooks or vague adventure seeds! The Adventure Generator will provide you with enough substance to get you started on creating a unique and challenging roleplaying experience.

The process of generating an adventure is simple:

Roll once on the Random Adventure Table. This result will lead you to a high-level story outline that you can build on.

Roll once on the Random Environment Table. The result is the environment for the adventure.

Roll once on the Random Adversary Table. This result is the opponent or predominant creature type throughout the adventure.

All of the adventures described in this book are outlines. You can fill in the missing details based on your setting and system of choice. Each storyline follows a five-encounter structure, allowing them to play out in one or two sessions. Individual segments are easily expanded into full encounters to create longer adventures.

To prepare for each adventure, you will need to adapt it for the rules system, the environment, and the adversary. Each outline includes notes on how to do this.

Is a hard copy really necessary for a book like this? Wouldn't a pdf just make more sence?

Is there a chance for a POD at any point?

Yes, but with the pandemic and USPS things are moving incredibly slowly. At this point it's taking 2-3 weeks for the printer to review and approve uploaded files, then well over a month for the proofs to be mailed to me for approval. If things need correction that's another 2-3 weeks before the printer looks them over, another 4-6 weeks before the new proofs arrive for my approval. I want to get all of our titles up as POS as soon as possible.

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.
