Follow-up to the outdoor exploration example from last night. Another region of the Nentir Vale, this one much more dangerous. Alterations I’ve made to the Vale poke through a bit more here. And yes, have noticed the disclaimer. Word uses my work template by default.

I love the Waters of Styx idea.

Is there more to this section, or do you manage to fit everything for a location onto a single page?

This is as cool as it is helpful. I don't know how many years it takes to start thinking along these lines but I'm here for it.

What do you use to build your 'random encounters'? I have some cool supplements that have some prebuilts.

I really like this - the content and the template both work for me. Can you please explain the % values on the table in the bottom right as I don’t get those.

I had a very Weasley brothers idea in mind; Styx water in potion bottles and sold as unpleasant pranks or for more malicious purposes. Players are "gifted" them by a un-well wisher to foil their plans.

I page through the monster manual, pick out critters that you’d find in the area, and also work out a few events or weird things that are iconic. More common stuff gets more numbers on the table. Bandits are 1 - 20 out of 100 for the Moon Hills, for instance.

Yeah I also really like the idea that there are events on the table too, that's kind of cool! I usually prep about 3-4 encounter groups and a handful of traps, but the idea of hallucinations and stuff plaguing them or something along those lines is really interesting.

Reminds me that once upon a time I was going to write about how I fleshed out the Witchlight Fens in my game.

How much writing are you able to do on Word for the iPad ?

I'm writing for a different rules system, but I like this straight-forward presentation. Thanks for the examples.

Any chance you could export your Word template (minus disclaimer) and share with us? Would save hobby designers some time trying to build an imitation.

Hope you are able to release you Nentir Vale stuff one day. Such a great campaign setting! Maybe on the DMs Guild?

Did I ever show you my notes for the overland travel sections of our Greyhawk campaign? Used some similar tables/methods, but since the campaign was about war the “random encounters” were often interludes meant to show the nations ravaged by war.

Do your home adventures ever get ideas moved to published adventures? Also can you post the completed notes when you’re done the campaign?
