Dungeon Feature 6 Fountains out now and the weekly RPG Round Up

Dungeon Feature 6 – Fountains

Whilst exploring a dungeon or other building, such as a castle complex or mansion, you can find many things, such as doors, artwork, furniture and much more.

The dungeon feature series covers what you would find as you explore, each volume focusing on something different. This volume features fountains, pieces of architecture which pour water into a basin or jets it into the air to supply drinking water and/or for a decorative or dramatic effect.

Inside this volume of Dungeon Features, you’ll find…

  • Several aspects that help you to design a fountain, such as condition, primary material and more
  • What type of liquid can be found in the fountain? This uses d20 table for quick use and a d100 for expanded options
  • A d100 table that covers the various effects of the liquid in the fountain
  • A d100 table for the quirks or features the fountain and the area around it

OrcPub Resource Shut down

Last week the resource I had listed, OrcPub, which is a site for making characters for 5e is/has been shut down by WoTC.  To quote ENWorld user Rellott “In a comment on the update he says that he is doing it for legal reasons that, for legal reasons, he would rather not disclose. The assumed cause is that WotC sent him a cease and desist order. This makes sense given the recent opening of D&D Beyond and its character building functions. “. It is because of this that, for now, I have removed OrcPub from the resource section. I have kept the section there for now in case anything else turns up to fill the spot.

I can’t say for sure why the site was shut down but it does raise an important issue, that of copyright/IP in the industry and as a whole...

No gen or resource this week

No generator or resource this week as I am putting the finishing touches on the content for the latest in the Dungeon Feature series – Fountains. Tomorrow I’ll be making a post that will cover the active lines of pdfs I’m working on and what others I have got planned. By active lines, I mean ones I have plans and ideas for. As I mentioned before the Chunk styles series is on hiatus. If it comes back it will be in a new format or tied to a particular game or system.

Creature Description Generator Volume 7 – Dwarf and the RPG Round Up

Creature Description Generator Volume 7 – Dwarf

A dwarf is, according to some, a member of a mythical race of short, stocky human-like creatures who are generally skilled in mining and metalworking.

But dwarfs, like all other creatures, come in a variety of types, not all follow the “deep voiced, grumpy miner” stereotype. The Creature Description Generator is designed to help you make your dwarfs description more varied, interesting and memorable.

Inside this edition of CDG you’ll find 10 Aspects to help flesh out your description of a dwarf:

  • Clan and Name – a brief overview of the dwarfs clan
  • Clothing/armour – What sort of clothing do they have on
  • Face & Features – Anything note-worthy about their face?
  • Hair/Beard – The thing for which many dwarfs are famous for
  • Personality – Are they considered too boring, clever, or something else?
  • Profession/Class – How does this dwarf make a living
  • Tattoos & Piercings – Does this dwarf have any type of body modifications?
  • Voice – How do they sound?
  • Weapon of Choice – What weapon does this dwarf prefer to use in combat?
  • Quirk/Feature – 100 quirks or features to help make the character more unique and memorable

The Dungeon Feature series returns soon

It’s been a while since the last volume in this series, but as I slowly plug my way through my to-do list and after a quick poll (both and twitter and patreon ) there was a high indication that people wanted more from the Dungeon Feature series.

For those that don’t know, the Dungeon Feature series is for helping to flesh out the details of a particular subject, themed around things you’ll find in dungeons, with a very broad scope for what I consider to be a dungeon, so it could be underground, something in rooms or gardens etc. In the past there have been dungeon features that covered the following subject:

  • Altars
  • Chests
  • Doors
  • Room/Location Names
  • Sights, Sounds and Smells

The next volume I am starting on today is about Fountains...
