It’s Halloween month– I mean October! It’s my favorite season of the year AND it holds my favorite holiday. As a celebration, we made a list of 50 horror-themed, unnerving, and otherwise creepy plot hooks for everyone to enjoy this month (or all year round if you’re into that. Like I am).Continue reading “50 Spooky Plot Hooks – The Chattering”
The Little Gods that hide in the crowded places of the world are myriad and their powers bubble, rise, and burst as favor and status waxes and wanes among their followers. They are just as important to the Major Deities, but their followers are the common folk, the needy, and the disenfranchised.Continue reading “Cults of the Little Gods”
Another All Dice Table from u/DougTheDragonborn and myself. This one offering a unique encounter with a beast. And all you need is 6 dice. And as Doug put it, it has 460,800 different possibilities.Continue reading “Unique Beast Encounters | An All Dice Table”
This is an excerpt from One Page Lore: Fantasy Folk. Orcs and details on 20 other fantasy folk (including halflings, gnomes, lizardfolk, and more) each have their own one-page entry. You can purchase it at rexiconjesse.itch.io/one-page-lore-fantasy-folk.
Orcs are way more interesting than just being total beefcakes. I don’t see much lore about them going into what it would mean to be so naturally strong or how they differ from other folk on a biological level. They don’t have to be warlike or tribal to stand out. Orcs can exist in a variety of ways. They have their own unique abilities and drawbacks.Continue reading “Orcs are More than Beefcakes with an Axe: One Page Lore: Orcs”

Nobody wakes up a villain. It’s often a series of events that starts small and escalates. One thing leads to another, and the BAM. They’re the baddest threat in all the realm.Continue reading “One Thing Led to Another… The Seemingly Unconnected Events that Lead to Someone Becoming a Villain – An All Dice Table”
u/DougTheDragonborn I had a time creating another All Dice Table. This time, we created a wondrous machine with a bizarre mix of processes and functions along with the motivations of its creator. Continue reading “Wondrous Mechanisms of the Impossible Variety | An All Dice Table”

The thieves’ guild isn’t a franchise any more than the black market is an event that happens in a local temple’s parking lot on Saturday mornings. There is no single guild that all thieves join to get union wages.
Recently, I helped u/DougTheDragonborn with an idea to make a table where you roll one of every dice in a set (d20, d12, d10, d8, d6, d4) to create neat things. We started with Omens from dreams. Continue reading “Omens from Dreams | An All Dice Table”
