    Random Tables

    I've been going through my game files, which are on a pc, laptop, external hard drive with the ghosts of old pcs, and a few flash drives. As I get things organized, I'll post stuff that might be useful to someone. Here are a few tables I've made in Excel which use code to pull entries from...

    D&D 5e Homebrew

    Now and then, I screw around with rules and settings to relax. Lately, it's been mostly 5e stuff. Below are some links for things finished enough to read in the hopes someone else also gets some use out of them. If others have homebrew material, feel free to post it here. Battle Box Outlines...

    Archipelago Generator

    My son wants to do a ship based adventure. I'm thinking this would be a great setup for a sandbox campaign. My recent re-exposure to Traveller and my long time love of tables made it obvious that I needed tables to generate a series of islands, modelled after Traveller's subsector generator...

    Dark Age Historical Fantasy D&D 5e

    Here's a setting that I've been playing around with off and on and I finally have enough of a rough draft to show. It takes place in Britain during Alfred the Great. It's low magic, high fantasy. I haven't add time to add a bunch of flavor text so it's a tad dry and terse. If you get a...
