  1. NPC-Squads-txt.zip, NPC-Squads-pdf.zip

    If anyone finds them useful, here are some squads of NPCs I’ve generated. (A second attempt at posting, after the first flooded the site with downloads for all the files individually, rather than a single download of multiple files!)

    There are:

    txt files (which print to one side of A4 if font is set to 8, and margins small, 1 cm all round, but right to .5cm.  Works best with a fixed font such as Consolas)
    and PDFs (to A4, I’m afraid I’m UK based).
    Here are: (3 pages, each with a squad of 6)

    Orlanthi Warriors – the general muster, so more an armed rabble.
    Orlanthi Thanes – the leaders or hand-picked guards.  I think “Thane” is very much the wrong term here as it seems anachronistically Anglo Saxon and doesn’t tie in with my idea of Orlanthi.  Any ideas what I should be calling them?
    Lunar Irregulars – Bunch of armed Lunars, I use as bandits and such.
    Lunar Light Infantry
    Lunar Heavy Infantry (I’ve had to weight towards strength, as the standard armour weights a ton)
    Mounts – for any of the above.
    I will add to the above, as required for my campaign.  But it’s slow moving (and currently stalled for obvious reasons).
    I’ve a program that generates them, using a data file that drives it all.  Mostly lists of weighted probabilities for stuff.  It weights cults/weapons etc. to the NPC’s runes, and it tries to be intelligent with the probabilities for weapons and armour, so the equipment doesn’t look completely random (whilst matching STR DEX and Enc limits).

    Anyway, what you see are all computer generated, without moderation (or deletion/selection), and the first run sets.

    If anyone is interested, I’m happy to share the code (it’s windows .Net, C#, and driven by XML data files).  However, it’s designed for my own use, I’ve made no attempt for it to be user friendly, and input is solely by editing a XML data file, fine for those who’re happy with XML and have a decent editor!

  2. RuneQuest-Glorantha-CharacterSheet-Word

    Yet another character sheet...
    It's very close to the version in the core rules for RuneQuest in Glorantha,
    Text boxes (in MS word) for filling in electronically
    I have made the following slight modifications:
    More room for passions (my players rolled up *very* interesting past history) Room to fit damage bonus in weapon records Removed sorcery section, as none of my players have any.  But adding it back in is just typing in the text boxes that are already there. Room for more languages (3 only allowed for native/cult/trade, and some of my characters came from Prax, so needed to speak to the other Sartarite players) An extra ally/mount - a player rolled a noble with a horse and intelligent Hawk side kick... Whilst editing text boxes in MS Word probably isn't that popular - I'm afraid I'm a numpty writing editable PDF.  It does mean you can use runes as fonts (downloadable ttf elsewhere on the site), whilst the entry text uses Candara, a font for which I have a penchant.
    Being from the UK it's in A4.  Not sure what happens to all the text boxes if you save in something more American friendly...
    Hope its of use to someone...
