As you approach the village, sleepy farmers in the fields watch you with feigned disinterest.

A decaying palisade surrounds part of the village but it's long since outgrown those meager defences. Some distance away in the market place, the couple of local peddlers are hawking their wares to travellers from the King's Road.

And as you look across the open fields, you could have sworn you saw something moving in the gloom out by the old ruins. Probably just your imagination though.

Classic adventure gaming often revolves around a central location to which the adventurers can return and rest between expeditions.

The Village Generator will help you set up an interesting location with its own NPC's, looming threats and a place in the world.

The random tables include will provide the following detail:

*Broad layout.

*Notable sights.

*Economic activity and sources of income.

*Recent historical events.

*Available defences.

*NPC's of note with disposition and peculiarities.

*Nearby threats with nature and levels of danger.

*Whether any dungeons are nearby.

*Tavern events.

*Village events.

*Enemy moves if a threat to the village is left unattended.

Notes are included on how to handle NPC's and village militia in the Dungeon Scum rules but the random tables are usable with any fantasy game, miniatures or role playing based.

This supplement is intended to help stimulate adventure ideas and act as an aid to a GM looking for a little inspiration.

It is NOT a complete ready-to-play adventure module.

Available now for the cost of an okay coffee.

The hits keep on coming! lol I like that it costs the same as an "okay coffee," not the elitist premium rip off, but the kinda crappy but affordable stuff ;) Again, cheers to you for the great support you provide to your ever expanding and ever compelling product line!

Hey man, coffee gets expensive around here if you want it to be artisinal conflict free coffee brewed from free range eco-beans that led a long and fulfilling life :-)

And thanks!

i'd rather spend a couple bucks on well thought out rules writing than a cup of coffee any day :D

Weasel26 Nov 2016 11:53 a.m. PST

I actually prefer tea :-)

I suppose this is more table-writing than rules, but same difference.

Well that was quick and easy. Many thanks

After completing the watching of The Musketeers, 3rd season, this is just what I was hoping for! After a quick purchase and read, I find the material easy to use for what I envision my Blue Moon Three Muusketeers 15's to encounter. And boy, do I have a LOT of European period buildings and Minifig civilians to run thru!

Thanks for making such useable background stiff available!

Very cool Tom :-)

I don't imagine throwing out the supernatural elements should be an issue at all, if I get a chance, I may throw in an alternate Threat table with various degrees of ruffians instead.

And please do share some pictures once you have things set up :-)
