The RQ Encounter Generator

Recommended Posts

I had a request to create pregenerated characters for Mythic Rome for Mythras yesterday   - and found out that there are more of them that would be interesting.

Reasons why you might want to have these are many and explained in that other post.

Encounter Generator solves this neatly for Mythras and old RQ6. Here is a second quickie fix for the problem. Here is a pregenerated characters party that can be used both in Late Republic Roman environment. Characters are at novice level. Generation follows majority of the steps included in the chargen - cultures, careers, appropriate weapons for several professions that seem to be universal in Roman times. These are now for Roman native citizens. Late Republic it is rarer for citizens to have military combat styles if you do not have military background.

Go to that previous post if you want to have or know more about pregenerated characters for Mythras.

Here are the new pregen characters for characters at the start of their career

- Roman Senator
- Roman Slave
- Roman Bureaucrat
- Roman Meretrix 
- Roman Diviner
- Roman Beggar
..and randomly composed group of them with their earlier friends in

- Roman Pregenerated Character Party

Pregenerated Gladiators, Usurers, Priests and Sorcerors for Mythic Rome in Mythras

Here is an additional list of pregenerated characters for Mythic Rome. In the past couple of days there were already a list of pregenerated characters for Mythic Rome for Mythras and that was expanded even more with additional possibly more degenerate pregenerated ones yesterday. 

Reasons why you might want to have these are many and explained in that other post.

@hkokko thanks for the pre gens i personally dont have mythic rome, yet, but i appreciate the enthuisiasm and dedication that many of you have for the mythras game. you dont find this kind of passion and love for a system especially for a small press company, no disrespect intended to The Design Mechanism, from alot of the other companies out there. you might get a response or a post on their forum every month or so and i am especially grateful for the community here. so thanks for your time and effort. just in case you thought that no one cares.

Thank you. 

to entice people's interest to the Pamaltelan side, here is something for Fonrit


Pregenerated Characters for Fonrit for Mythras

Sometimes you just need a bit more variety on the kind of characters that people take up. 

Here is larger variety of pregenerated starting characters for Encounter Generator .

These are useful for those times when you just do not have time to go thru the character generation process. The reasons why (TPK, party member died in the middle of the game, surprise additional player...) are many. These follow the same principles than in the previous pregeneration articles (Standard Barbarians, Nomad Herders and Warriors, Barbarians, City Thieves and Priests, Esrolia, Balazar, Hsunchern - Civilization vs Primitives and Larger Variety of Pregenerated Characters for Esrolia and Sartar) that were usable for example in Pavis and Sartar.

This article expands still more the scope beyond those standard areas to guests who might arrive. 

Fonrit is one of the more intriguing areas in Glorantha. Here is a set of pregenerated characters for a game in a land where deceit is the new normal, trust was sacrificed centuries ago, colors are bright, conspiracy and assassinations are on the menu every day, Renewed battle for the (relative) freedom for slaves and Oldsters try to uphold the oppression and Vadeli are your friends while Silence is not. 

- Fonrit Slave Soldier
- Fonrit Slave Soldier (Agimori)
- Fonrit Thief
- Fonrit Merchant
- Fonrit Slavemaster
- Fonrit Harem Guard
- Fonrit Spy
- Fonrit Dancer
- Fonrit Conspirator
- Fonrit Storyteller

You can generate a group of them by generating

- Fonrit Characters Party

Down On Your Luck in Monster Island - Law, Order and Hapless Explorers

 

I have been working for awhile with some side projects related to my campaign in Monster Island. As a result of those I also created a few Encounters that might be useful in Monster Island or possibly even other places play.

 

Monster Island is a wonderful place for hex crawl type activities and this is what the party has been doing the last few sessions using several new things I have been working on. Extended conflicts have been used from M-Space and they are actually rather wonderful way of setting heists, chases etc up. More on that later. I have been using Johnn Fourr's Campaign Logger to build up a personal private campaign log. It is truly good way of tracking your campaign with minimal effort and the latest addition of random generators that you can either keep private or use what they provide or contribute as open source have been extremely useful. More on that also later.
In my campaign Monster Island is of course an alternate form of Loral - perhaps a touch more accessible than in the official lore but still plenty tough and modified to fit my Fonrit.  Fonritans of course want to exploit the riches of the island. M'Simba M'Samba the Green Walker is around but not seen...   Some wish to see him, others definitely do not.  Beware what you wish for you might get it, and it might not be what you thought it was.
Governor's Guard is a small of group of toughest mercenaries so far seen. White Death is a larger group of mercenaries brought in to keep law and order. Stingers is militia volunteers.
  • Governor's Guard
  • White Death Mercenary
  • White Death Mercenary - A Strong One
  • Stingers - Colonists Militia at Monster Island
The following parties might be encountered
  • Governors Guard with White Death Patrol
  • White Death Patrol
  • Stingers Grimsand Militia Patrol
  • Umathelan Barbarian Thugs in Monster Island
  • Afadjanni Corsair Thugs in Monster Island
  • Maslo Agimori Thugs In Monster Island
  • Mixed Group of Thugs in Monster Island
  • Afadjann Explorer Party in Monster Island
  • Umathelan Explorers in Monster Island
  • Haragalan Explorers in Monster Island
  • Serpent People Sorceror Party with Primitive Guard
  • Serpent People Sorceror Party with Undead

You will likely find more useful encounters with the Encounter Generator.

Just out of curiosity how much work would it take to create a portable version of this? Not necessarily an independent program, but something like a complete web archive that could be used from a jump drive or something?

Quite a bit I guess - it has been asked maybe 2-4 times - once a year during the last 4-5 years tool has been in existence. The developer (skoll) considers this to be pretty much feature complete. So do I - pretty much. If there is additional development - there are some things that I would consider to help more than trying to create extra complexity and work in trying to maintain a portable version.  The technology would need to be different. It will not be uptodate with the templates and features that are constantly being updated.   Currently there are no major bugs - it works on its own. 

I am involved in another tool (campaign logger) that has portable and internet versions separate. The portable version has not been developed for awhile as most players in most occasions have internet access - so the web version has large variety of features not existing in portable ones. And that is small commercial product... 

Why would you want to have portable. It is portable enough already - using it constantly on my iPad - it just requires the internet connection. 

If you cannot have internet connection - it is super easy to prepare for session by generating enough opponents before hand of any kind whatsoever. I have a small folder of them printed out just in case - any permanent ones I could also store as pdf in Evernote or file folders. For example for city - few encounters before hand, for jungle - few human, few animal, few monsters, for a forbidden temple - few guards, few monsters, the big baddie and so on...

The thing with having the printed ones out is that you can mark them during the melee (hit points, conditions etc...) 

In Mythras it is hard to have several melees in a night - so few ready made printed or pdf should be enough. If you are going to a cottage for a week of gaming and no internet there - again it is easy to prep beforehand - printing larger amount or pdf:ing larger amount.
