    Content generator 2020!

    Introducing Content Generator 2020!

    I have now made TWO VERSIONS of this mod: A version for 5e, as well as a version labeled "Any" that should work with most rulesets, as the 5e links have been removed!
    If your formatting is screwy, I apologize, but this was built in 5e with no UI mods active. The functionality for other rulesets is "as-is", but I hope it works for everyone!

    This mod was designed to be used from your Tables window, under the "01 Content Generator 2020" group. This table group is a one-stop-shop for everything this mod has to offer. There is another table category named "X Content Generators Back End" which has the tables that do all the heavy lifting behind the scenes (you shouldn't need to mess with those ever unless you wanted to tinker around.)

    See this image for what I mean: Content Generator Menu.JPG ...That's where your journey begins!

    • The posts that follow will be a deeper dive into each area of this mod for those that are interested.

    *Note: This is not a small mod! While I could have separated the images into a separate package, I am choosing for now to make it an all-in-one. Maybe in the future I'll revisit that.

    1. CAMPAIGN GENERATOR:

    My hope is you can spin the wheel on this and run a game with what it gives you. Right now, there are four plots centered around two premises. It's not very diverse, but these take ages to think up and it seems like a pretty good start!

    Make sure you read the entire campaign before you start- there is A TON of information and being prepared will set you up for success!

    What's included (you'll find all of these tables listed inside the Table window category "01 Content Generators"):

    Inside the table "02 - City Generator" is where this puppy lives. It contains:
    • A complete plot to start your campaign!
    • Pre-made chat bubbles to paint the world to your players
    • Plot hooks, double-crosses, and a clever BBEG to deal with!
    • A complete city setting! Enough data here for anybody, ever.
    • Conniving secret societies plotting your demise!
    • Weather
    • Economy and Regional City Relations
    • Interesting Facts
    • Interesting Events
    • Religions and Gods
    • Government Officials and Royal Drama
    • Historical Periods
    • City Building Generators
    • Inner-City Travel Descriptions
    • Some generic city zoomed-in travel maps
    • Useless Citizen descriptions

    5. BIG CITY RANDOM SHOPS!

    A d100 "05 - Big City Random Shops!" table, which is designed to help bring some fun and levity to a metropolis business district scene.

    I adapted this from a redditor named JustaFleshW0und, and it's really fun. Unlike the rest of the generators which output to new story entries, this defaults to chat output so as not to cram your story windows with random junk as your PCs wander around the city.

    6. MERCHANT GENERATORS:

    What's included (you'll find all of these tables listed inside the Table window category "01 Content Generator 2020"):

    Inside the table "06 - Merchant Generator" you'll find a handy list of Story templates that generate:
    • Shops
    • Shopkeepers
    • Chat bubbles for your PCs to read
    • Inventories

    What's included (you'll find all of these tables listed inside the Table window category "01 Content Generator 2020"):

    Inside the table "07 - Tavern Generator Templates" you'll find a handy list of all the story templates which will generate a tavern:
    • Tavern name
    • Building Description
    • Reputation
    • Money on hand
    • Price markups and Haggling
    • A (very!) detailed description of the head Barkeep
    • Patrons
    • Rumors making the rounds currently (including one about the barkeep!)
    • Rooms currently available (if any)
    • And a full menu that changes in size/quality if the tavern is small or large, and seedy or upscale!

    8. TAVERN MENU GENERATOR:

    A "08 Tavern Menu Generator (Result Shareable!)" Table which contains the story template to create a stand-alone tavern menu.

    This allows you to instantly whip up a menu even if you don't want to generate a full tavern, but it also makes the menu easily shareable to PCs without giving away any "GM only" info about a tavern!

    Please Note: This generated menu will not be tailored to the size and reputation of a tavern, while the menus generated by the full Tavern Generator Templates detailed above are tailored to match (large, upscale taverns have a greater variety and selection than small seedy taverns).

    Additionally, the full tavern generators specify if the tavern has any vacant rooms for rent currently, and this does not: it is ONLY a food and drinks menu.

    Inside the table "09 - Brothel Generator" you'll find a handy Story template that generates all kinds of shady buildings.
    • Prostitutes all have nicknames!

    • Brothel Rumors!
