Allright. After the downfall of my hastily started last thread
, out of it's ashes an equally hastily thread emerges. What if we all work together on a big d100 table to create a random setting for a quick one-shot in an "generic" system like Fate
or even Roll 4 Shoes
? I think that might be fun.
I was thinking of three separate tables, one for a descriptor
, the other for a group or people
or something like that (the subject of the setting) and then a third one for a place
In this way, we could get a "the XY of the Z" type of setting descriptor elevator pitch kinda thing. If/once this list is done, we could build further upon it or something.
So, let's say that everyone can post up to 5
of each category in one post and has to wait until someone else has posted or a day has gone by
(whichever comes first) to add to it.
My first entry will be:Descriptor
: Heroic, Maniacal, Dino-Riding, Cybernetic, FanaticalSubject
: Knights, Astronauts, Mystics, Bureaucrats, Jazz-MusiciansPlace
: Atlantis, Prussia, Camelot, The Kuiper belt, Elysium
This could lead to setting Pitches like The Dino-Riding Bureaucrats of Camelot, The Maniacal Mystics of Atlantis, Heroic Jazz-Musicians Touring the Kuiper Belt, and many more.
Let's see if we can get up to three hundred entries (a hundred each) before we start adding things like threats or stuff. (Like The Fanatical Astronauts of Elysium in ... (new random content))
