Boilerplate Illusionist Playbook
Now that I have the documents set up for these playbooks , it's pretty easy to put out more. Here's an Illusionist class, based on the conceit of the Delving Deeper Illusionist —namely, that an Illusionist is a charlatan who imitates magical effects. Boiler...

Boilerplate Fantasy Playbooks
Once in a while I do something I think might actually be useful. These playbooks should greatly speed up chargen, especially for new or young players. Ask the player what kind of character they want to play, hand them the appropriate packet, and then answer...

Playbook-style Chargen without Playbooks
Beyond The Wall 's playbooks are a really fun part of the game, and, for awhile, I was into the idea of writing playbook variations . I found myself making them more and more open-ended until I had something that really wasn't a playbook, anymore, but a sim...

Six Random Gods
Well, personally, I'm tickled by the Patron Deity Table in the Boilerplate Cleric playbook . Roll 30d30 and illustrate by typing their titles into image search: Haamis, The Foolish Champion of Plenty Makwan, The Joyful Keeper of Songs & Storms Yibar, The Sh...

do not do wicked things in the dark woods.

Well, of course not! Only city-born prejudices would lead anybody to believe that sort of thing !

Random Table: Patron Diety
I'm working on some playbooks for quick character generation for a group a kids in an effort to keep chargen to five or ten minutes. I'm using S&W Whitebox, with bits of Holmes and whatnot tucked in here or there. There should be just enough fluff to give t...

Simplest Death & Dismemberment
I love Death & Dismemberment Tables, but I get tired of looking them up. So how about an easily remembered rule? When you reach 0 or negative hp: Subtract 1d10 from a random attribute (1d6). The player can choose: 1. Pass out from blood loss until you recei...

Holmes/AD&D/B/X: Spells Known
I often find rules in D&D that don’t work the way I expect them to, and blame my younger self for having been too lazy to learn the rules correctly back in the day. Turns out, I’m usually just remembering Holmes Basic. This came up recently, when a campaign...

+Hugh Acton That's true. I hope I made that point at the end of the post. It didn't feel right to compare Holmes and AD&D and then leave B/X out of the conversation. Especially since I think a lot of people ignore the AD&D rule in favor of B/X's approach.

Extra-Planar Entity Name Generator
Inspired by +Ralph Lovegrove 's recent post on Stormbringer-style demons , here's a quick idea that really doesn't need to be a post. Roll 1d12. Blindly hit that number of keys on your keyboard. Write down a phonetic approximation of your keyboard-pecking. ...
