A Small Collection of Flowers & Entanglements


This is a 24 page zine (including covers) of eight (8) templates alongside a small amount of description plus an example or two to help you create and manage role-playing adventures.


One (1) template is a minor variation on the excellent hex flower engine (created by Goblin's Henchman whose hex flowers also appear in the Planar Compass #2 zine).

The other seven (7) are a means of tracking relationships between NPCs or factions through relationship diagrams. I've called them "tanglegraphs" because it sounds nice.

(Dis)Advantage Hex Flower

The featured hex flower differs slightly from the norm in that you roll two (2) six-sided dice and take the higher or lower value depending on whether you have the advantage over your rival or not with outcomes on a Good to Bad scale.


The seven (7) tanglegraphs essentially allow you to define how a character (or faction) feel about or interact with another character (or faction) in one (1) word. 

There is then space to add a name, short description, and what they knows-es and you're away. 

Essentially they're a helpful reference at the table to help you avoid writing copious backstory about NPCs (though you can still do that if that's your bag).

These templates can accommodate from two (2), a duet, up to eight (8), an octet, characters/factions but around four (4), the quartet, is probably the sweet spot.

They're especially useful if creating a mystery adventure with secrets and lies...


This was originally made available as part of Kickstarter's ZineQuest 3 where it had a limited (inkjet) print(er) release of 50 handmade copies.

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.
