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”
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.

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”
*This is became part of a bigger project: Divine Intervention: Meddling Deities, Their Goals, and more*
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”
While this was supposed to go up with ZineQuest 2020 on February 2nd, but either through my fault or a website glitch WE’RE LIVE NOW!

The vast variety of mushroom people always look neat, but I was curious what playing a fungal folk would actually be like. What makes them unique? What fungus-based features would give them advantages over their fleshy party mates? What shortcomings would hinder them that others wouldn’t even think about?
Dungeons need not be a collection of mismatched monsters and slapdash snares. Some dungeoneers pride themselves on creating unique works of deadly art.
People are a mix of accepting and rejecting parts of their environment as well as how they view and wish to view themselves. For elves, so much of what they’re known for is societal: elitists, elegant, proper. Those are things you learn as you develop, not things you start life with. Continue reading “One Page Lore: Elves”
