Looking for Adventure seed generator

Raphael

Mongoose
Some time ago, as a guest here, someone posted a Adventure Seed generator that worked like this

A.......... B
.......C.......
D............E

There were lists of all kinds of events, people, and places. You plugged in an item from one of the lists in each slot. Each slot is related to the other in some way. A and B were antecedants to C. D modified C and E was the outcome.

I am paraphasing from faulty memory here, and probably getting the relationships all wrong. The end result was a bare bones adventure idea. No more.

If you created this or know who did, I would love to find it again. I have since changed jobs and it was on my work computer.

Thanks,
Raphael

Interesting idea generator. I've seen others on the internet for d20, at least this one leaves more to the ref's imagination.

That's the beauty. It doesn't give you too much detail. In fact, you can get some really wierd combinations that require some creative GMing.

I've actually supplemented this with a few additional charts. I removed a few items and replaced them with Western Kingdoms, Eastern Kingdoms, Southern Kingdoms, and Northern Kingdoms. Then I made a chart for each area. For East and West, I use a d20. For North a d4, and for South d12 (I think). Anyway, if a location comes up in the matrix I can use it either as a location per se, or as a character from that location.

As creator of the original, I'd be interested in seeing your additions. I've used this sytem a lot in various games, from Star Wars to Traveller to Talislanta to Forgotten Futures and Call of Cthulhu. It just needs different keywords plugging in. Glad you're finding it useful.

I'll try to remember to post it soon. Maybe tonight.
I'd love to see the Call of Cthulhu version.
