As promised, here is a thread in which we can share the maps we’ve made and any other resources that we’d like to share or show off! I plan to share and discuss these on stream so, if you would like to opt out of that, please note it in your reply!
Looking forward to sharing! And maybe pints, in Ireland, one day!
Let’s kickstart things with the one that started it all, the hex map from Avalon Hills’ Outdoor Survival, courtesy of the Adventures in Gaming blog:
Dungeon Master Master Class is using a hex map for the campaign I play in now. But He probably wouldn’t share it until the campaign is over.
I’ve heard him say several times he did everything wrong when making the map, and failed at following all your advice. But everyone is having a good time so it might be interesting to look at how a map is succeeding despite itself!
I’m sure he’s giving me too much credit but I’d love to see it at some point!
Hey all- Magnus here. Might recognize me from my consistent side-tracking of our beneficent Prof. Todd during his livestreams haha.
After a busy week I’ve finally got some pictures to share of my Worlds Without Number game binder- set to restart gameplay tonight!
Many thanks to this channel and host for teaching this fledgling gm the better part of what he knows!
(One of my favorite Old-School art pieces- it’s the cover to my binder!
Here is the first “spread” of my binder- I took a lot of advice from GFC DND’s “How to Hexcrawl” video, which incidentally is also cited in the Manual of Hexerity.
The left page is Big Dragon Game’s Hex Crawl Worksheet from the resource pack that works with their D30 Companion books, which I’m afraid I’ve criminally underused aside from the maps in favor of Worlds Without Number.
(Second page of the spread mentioned previously, because apparently I can only upload one picture at a time right now )
Addendum: apparently I’ve hit my reply limit to this topic as well, so I’m unable to add the second page of my key haha. Not entirely sure how to level up, but I have plenty more I’d love to share!
Addendum2: I have petitioned our Patron Deity and he has seen fit to grant me higher level in this, his Domain. I’ve moved the picture to the above post. Praise be to the almighty Presser of the Hex!
I’m pretty sure you level up just with activity and time. Commenting on other people’s posts is probably the fastest way to do it.
Poleis Without Number
Greetings again friends- thought I’d share something I’ve been cooking up; mentioned it on stream yesterday shortly before the crash haha
Basically I’ve been retooling some tables from James Crawford’s Cities Without Number. The assumed setting and mechanics are Cyberpunk in nature, but broadly compatible with both Stars and Worlds.
One may assume, as I had, that it would be a trifle to mentally find/replace certain terms on the random generation tables, but turns out there are some interesting considerations to make along the way. While one could roll first and tweak later, I thought it would be a fun exercise to go through and retool them on the front end.
Man, the Weaponsmith and Armorsmith guilds are nasty!
I wonder what a “Cultish” Armorsmith Guild is like haha
Now that I say that, probably something like this: https://youtu.be/y3DsHGDRQ5M?feature=shared
