My brother is DMing a game right now so I’ve decided to make his players character place cards. Unfortunately I only know the characters’ names and not their races or classes or anything about them. That’s ok, I’ll turn Nester into a random NPC in my game by using my favourite tool, random tables!
Nestor Flynhorn is a young man of slight frame. To hear it from him, he will tell you that he was born for the stage and was performing in theaters before he could even talk. Frankly, you can’t disagree with the fact that he is an immensely talented actor. Holding a discussion with him can be frustrating as he always appears to be staring off into the distance as if he was surveying a crowd from the stage. When he isn’t rehearsing or performing at the Midnight Theater you’ll likely find him gambling at the Cat Paw Inn.
Here is another random dungeon. I am really enjoying making them. There is something very relaxing about rolling the dice and letting chance guide my pen.
Dungeon Location – On an island
Dungeon Creator – Elemental Air Cult
Dungeon Purpose – Stronghold
Dungeon History – Original Creator still in control
Stormbringer island has always been famous for the ferocious storms that seems to surround it constantly. Some say the storms are the a manifestation of the gods’ anger for mans defiance, but you know the truth. High atop the tallest mountain an elemental cult makes their stronghold within the mountain and have conjured the storms to keep would be explorers away as they gather their power for who knows what purpose.
What adventuring party can resist the lure of treasure? Who cares that in order to get there they will have to brave shark infested waters only to find out that there are two islands and they don’t know which one the treasure is on?
So with a glass of wine in hand, I decided it would be a good idea to make a random dungeon using the random dungeon tables in the D&D 5th edition Dungeon Master’s Guide. Here is the result.
Dungeon Location – Beneath a ruined city
Dungeon Creator – Dwarves
Dungeon Purpose – Lair
Dungeon History – Conquered by invaders
Long ago beneath the great dwarven city of Kazakhruen an the archmagister to the king had a workshop where he created all manner of terrible beasts to for use against the goblin horde. But alas, it was of no use for the goblins came in numbers too great to count and overran the city. Some say the archimagisters foul creations still roam the ruined city, attacking any who may enter.
A user over on reddit has been drawing people’s character’s for the last couple of hours so I decided to make a place card for their character Garth Drouknoir. Apparently Garth is an angsty teenage tiefling warlock.
You can check out the reddit post where user BEEFJAKE is doing all the character drawings HERE.
So a while ago I made some place cards to practice my textura quadrata (gothic). I used the cast of Geek and Sundry’s Critical Role for practice and figured that now is as good as time as any to share since they just wrapped up an epic story-line.
So I’ve been playing around with some tree styles for my overhead dungeon maps. I think I’ve narrowed it down to five basic tree shapes, although I’m not in love with tree four. I might just cut that one out and go with the others. How does everyone else draw their trees?
