Connected Notes Flicked On the outside the incidents in question are separate. A golum wreaking havoc in a school. The death of a family in a nearby town. And on further investigation, two students of the University of Magic have gone missing along with magical items they were working on. For months the University of Magic has been continuing its internal lessons as well as its public services without admitting anything is wrong. But the University won’t be able to keep it a secret for much longer.
The Wizard Orengary is a very careful operator. He wanted to sever all ties to his foster family and to his childhood and start afresh. Knowing that he forged his way into the University, an establishment that prides itself on having the finest students, his family continued to blackmail him for years until he finally snapped and used his position to set things in motion. His previous identity would be erased from history and his ties to that family gone for good. He took steps to hide the paper trail. With a flick of the wrist, all evidence disappeared keeping people guessing but unable to prove his guilt.
If the players are involved in finding the cause of this disturbance, they will have to uncover the paper trail. Where does his magic send it? Is it in a pocket plane of his own creation, or is there a chest he can summon it to? How many have died in his attempts to conceal his past?
Appeals Bumper Pillow Little Seeding is a farming community with very little money and very odd customs. There is a large barn in which sits a small box. At night time, the first to bed opens the box and says the incantation. Moments later, a ginormous pillow expands into existence and fills the room. This pillow is so fluffy and large that it provides enough comfort and space for the entire village! This is why there are so few barns. The community shares one for lounging, one for cooking and eating, and one for storing their grain and equipment and one for keeping their livestock warm. For newcomers, it can be a strange sight, to see everyone snuggle on the pillow, both on top and inside with the feathers. The origin of the pillow is a fey creature, or a witch or wizard. Each person will give a different story and smirk knowingly as they tell it.
Passions Fruit Roadway An old saying by people in some parts of the world is ‘never follow a fruit-tree road’. It’s a strange thought, but sometimes there is a trace of a god or a magical conscience that looks for someone to be loved by or to play with. The fruit tree is a more typical manifestation of that need. The fruit trees contain ripe fruit that are both delicious and dangerous. Once a creature eats from it, they will become more and more reckless and adventurous. They can often hear attractive noises too, such as encouraging voices and romantic music. The fruit-tree road will circle around rocks and corners out of sight, catching the light in an attractive way and almost calling out to the traveller. Those that follow the road to see where it goes will take the ever-winding path onward and upward until they will come to a point at the top where there is only one way to go. The audio illusions become threatening at this point as if there is danger advancing from the road they have just travelled up. If the adventurer takes the plunge they will very likely die plunging either into the depths of the magical energy or hitting the real ground far below.
Creating Roleplay ideas based on randomly generated words. Here’s today’s selection: Discover more about Populations Lettuce Paragraphs, Arming Survived Move, and Sanitation Egging Taller.
Populations Lettuce Paragraphs The ancient population of Semaran spread far and wide when the seeds of the wild were stifled from a particularly savage and brutal stretch of land. The royal family encouraged their subjects to migrate and maintain these lands to stop them getting out of control ever again. With this goal in mind, the King gave each group weaponry to arm themselves, a pot of berry ink and a quill with which to write and a single King’s Lettuce. This may seem like a poultry gift, but the King’s Lettuce is a very sturdy plant. It will survive without soil for up to 3 weeks and the leaves are strong enough when dried to be used as parchment. The experiment worked. The lands were tamed and the King received word from his very own subjects.
Will the player’s find the wilds growing out of control once more? Or will they be bewildered as to why a theft of a lettuce is so meaningful to a village?
Arming Survived Move Through Filogel Wastes is the only way to travel between two fertile and populous lands on either side. The mountains that surround the wastes are both crumbly and jagged, and so only a bird would contemplate travelling over such a route. The difficulty with the Filogel Wastes is that it preys on the minds and bodies of those that cross it. The legends say that brutal magical wars were fought on these grounds and now powerful spirits seek vessels in which to ‘live’ again.
A civil war in the Eastern lands has made many people desperate enough to attempt the journey west on foot or on horseback. Word through flying messengers has gotten through to the western lands. Now, the city of Terussa in the West and the city of Valinrey to the East prepare for an undead army of all the fallen, desperate souls that tried to escape war.
If the players are caught in this, will they be trying to escape the war and travelling through the wastes, or will they try to defend the cities from the undead armies?
Sanitation Egging Taller A way to be considered ‘cool’ and increase your standing in the young street gangs of Teruul is to ‘fly down the stench’; this refers to the sewers beneath the city. The ‘stench’ as it is un-affectionately known, covers an area of 2 miles or 3.1km. If the person who is daring or foolish enough to surf this brown wave times their entrance well they may be able to sail down to the river at the other end. But there are many twists, grates to dodge and the occasional creature to avoid. As parts of the sewers are open-air, it makes for quite an entertaining spectacle! Any that survive will be respected by some and begrudgingly accepted by others.
Why might the players get involved in this? Are they trying to infiltrate a gang for coin or are they attempting to discover the identity of their leaders and what they are up to? Or perhaps they have been caught and the gang want them to die in an entertaining way?
Creating Roleplay ideas based on randomly generated words. Today, it’s Sci-fi! Discover more about Permitting Afternoon Someone, Blinked Enzymes Resold, and Microwaves Chickens Mounds.
Permitting Afternoon Someone In the big city the ever-increasing use of technology and working from home gave one entrepreneur the idea to create Afternoon Tea with Someone. This fashionable restaurant (that spawned a new culture of tea dates) takes bookings for individuals and pairs them up with other individuals, so each trip is a new social experience. They say that many lonely souls grow a little after each trip.
What chance encounter might a player have in such a place? Or could there be a murder or blackmail plot based around fixing the meeting between two people?
Blinked Enzymes Resold In this futuristic world, enzymes are provided to clients seeking to lose weight fast. It reacts with the digestive system, speeding up the breakdown of foods by up to 10 times. There are also rogue sellers and one such enzyme manufacturer created enzymes that can hide their true intentions and look and act like any dietary aid. When they blink back into their main programme however, they can mutate the host by unwinding the DNA coils and changing the information before copying them.
What is the rogue manufacturer’s intentions? How severe are the mutations?
Microwaves Chickens Mounds Habishabi is a land owner, but the land he owns has been severally polluted with waste, which is why he was able to buy it for next to nothing! In the piles of debris and old produce, he has created a unique garden of his own. Behind a wall of masonry and metal pots is a tranquil amphitheatre with potted plants and animals. Sitting in the middle is a fountain made of bicycle parts, his living quarters is a shelter made of metal sheets and cupboards but is quite cosy inside. At the other end of the amphitheatre is a large pile of carefully arranged microwaves inhabited by a colony of chickens. Each microwave sits a little back from the one below and the ramps Habishabi installed allow the chickens to meander between each level all the way to the ground floor.
Habishabi is a very amenable sort, but he is also a man of trade. He can mend, custom design and provide information. In return, he often takes other items if he thinks they might come in handy. A very useful guy to know.

words. Here’s today’s selection. Discover more about Upwardly Nippy Charmingly Involvement,
Imported Sonic Budgeted Goodbye, and Craved Unruly Westerner.
Charmingly Involvement The rage in rich neighbourhoods of the city is to own a set of Pillar
Plants. Placed on balconies, below
chimneys or on window sills they are ideal for getting rid of unwanted house
guests. Not only flies but the criminal
fraternity will have their fingers bitten and if something brushes past their
upward openings they will produce a gooey substance that will stick to the
would-be visitor, who will be dealing with the smell and mess for days
Budgeted Goodbye One of the cheapest spells to create for mages is the ‘Message’ spell, which is capable of delivering audible messages to
a particular person even if they are many miles away. Certain arcane entrepreneurial spirits
thought of a way of creating a Blossom’s Message Pack. ‘Send your loved one a thoughtful
greeting’. It just requires them to open
the pack, attach a part of the creature they are sending in to – such as a hair
or the end of a finger nail – and speaking the 6 second message into the
box. The idea quickly caught on and made
magic not only accessible to many people but affordable! It was particularly popular for families of merchants
and those travelling into dangerous situations such as war or into piratical
Westerner Fortune of all sorts is craved by most folk, but one in particular seems to
collect and distribute it. It is said
she is like a sorting machine for the currency of chance. Although she goes by many names and many
faces, most of the time she frequents herself in the taverns and brothels of
the city, awaiting chance encounters to come to her. Once she is found, the crowds gather and the
evening is never dull. Is she a god or
does she just have a unique talent? No
one knows for sure.
Only fools play her at cards and so she often changes her
face to make sure she gets her game before they can change their minds. She very rarely deals with direct requests
preferring fortunes to be won or lost in a genuine way. One such example is if an unfortunate man is
trampled to death by a horse in her sight, then two long lost brothers may
happen to meet moments later. At the
same time, if two lovers meet for the first time then a cart driver may lose
his sight. The world works in such ways
For what purpose might adventurers go looking for
her? Or will a chance meeting mean she
gives them a banana peel of fortune?
Creating Roleplay ideas based on randomly generated words. Here’s today’s selection. Discover more about Tipping Cavailer, Feeling Jackets and People Brother.
Tipping Cavailer Although they don’t always get great press, cavaliers are the classic ‘knight in shining armour’, or in other words, escorts in armour. Most are mercenary, happy to be bought or sold to the highest bidder, whilst some become indispensable to one particular patron and are bought out for life. The cavalier has loyalty to the one that pays them but beyond that must keep an eye out for potential custom and maintain an impressive reputation. While there is no doubt some truth behind patrons tipping cavaliers for extra favours, there is a famous case of Sir Basil the Cavalier who tipped not only rich folk with goblets of wine that he hoped would patronize him, but also gave money to town criers and king’s subjects to say favourable things about his deeds and stature. Sir Basil is likely in great debt by the time the adventurers enter his domain. A chance then to try and rescue Sir Basil’s faultering career by accomplishing some impressive deeds. As a reward? Well, he knows where all the best parties are in town.
Feeling Jackets This one is a bit of a caper. As the temparature drops and the weather worsens, giant snow critters have awoken from their swampy island and invaded the mainland. The town is riddled with these creatures, which look like flying wind chimes. When they bite their prey, they take blood and inject an ice-cold fluid into their victim’s veins. If the creature manages to stagger away, they must quickly warm their bodies up or risk freezing on the spot and being stabbed by a second snow critter which will fill them with tiny eggs. After that it is a matter of hours before they become the host for a new generation of snow critters. If your adventurers are unlucky enough to find themselves in such a town in wintertime, expect rescuing missions and lots of hot drinks. How can the snow critters be stopped or prevented from feeding on the townsfolk?
In the town of Ricaroto, they have perhaps the most surprising guardian. A troll youngling was discovered outside the town in the grasslands before the forest proper. The young couple who found her didn’t have the heart to kill her seeing only desperate hunger in her eyes. Away from prying eyes they fed it meat and berries until it was able to use its own limbs. By that time they had already named her Dew Eyes and couldn’t bare to let her go. It caused much alarm when at first it was discovered by friends on a house visit. Word got around but the couple stubbornly kept her. After much debate, the council did not banish their child troll from the town. However, many were very weary of her and the troll was kept at home for all but occasional trips. At the present time, Dew Eyes is a young but nearly fully grown troll and believes herself to be a person. She came into her own when a band of orcs raided the town. They were not expecting a troll and she defended her foster parents’ territory as if her life depended on it.

Recollect Intolerant Vandalism
The ashes of the Dwarven King Krasta the Great were scattered some 70 years ago by the Elven Prince, Velsor when they vase containing the ashes shattered. Since he succeeded his father as King, the Dwarves have stopped trading with Velsor’s kingdom completely. This rift between the two nations is stopping trade for both kingdoms and is threatening to turn into a full-blown war.
Was Velsor really to blame for this ‘terrible crime’ or was there another power at work that ensured the ashes were scattered? Can peace be brokered between these kingdoms?
Creator Beginning Anymore A large area called ‘The Divide’ is a growing phenomenon where both land and sea are swallowed up into a gaping hole into which nothing returns. Many say the Gods forgot this land or that an argument between two deities has created a wilderness that has festered over time. Can the adventurers stop the ever-growing Divide before an epic disaster ensues? Will the clues lead them to resolving the situation? Will they perhaps get divine intervention of their own as a third God acts as their guide?
Chain Wrestle Three criminals or fighters defeated in battle are brought to the mountain kingdom of the Dwarves to be punished. The three criminals are bound together with long chains. In the arena, the ground gives way leaving a deep ravine below, and just three circular platforms beneath these fighters’ feet joined by narrow pathways. The criminals must fight but in doing so, they seal their own fate. Only if one can hang on will their chains be cut, allowing the others to fall to their doom.

A numbers of thefts have been reported in one city, with the watch very keen to catch the criminals. But as things develop, a gang war is brewing between two of the criminal factions and seemingly unrelated, a popular singing sensation is letting down his adoring fans. If the adventurers investigate further, they will discover that Dano Dew’s brilliant singing can manipulate and unlock doors. Clues are a plenty, including a pleasant humming sound being heard by witnesses before a robbery took place and the gang wars are to do with who gets access to ‘DD’s incredible talents. It seems that he is over his head, but can the adventurers assist him, or has Dano Dew sealed his own fate?
Senator Fetches Turtles One ambitious politician takes his orders from another being outside of his political party. Sean Vlarn seeks to gain favour through worshipping an Old One; an ancient god. But in return this deity wishes Sean to make sacrifices. Instead or murdering his fellow citizens, he raids an animal sanctuary, bringing back many baby turtles in the hope that their sacrifice will suffice. To do this, he hired two humans to help move and sacrifice the turtles, promising them riches if they keep their mouths shut. But as the sacrifices begin, they start to lose their minds. As the players come into this adventure, a dangerous tension in the air of something evil and powerful stirring. But what will be the result of Sean’s efforts? Did his turtle sacrifices work, or was he forced to kill something bigger? Will a door open between worlds, or will the Old One’s powers be given to Sean and his followers?
Fireworks Ousted Global Jogging The gentlemen’s shoes. This is a brand of magical black leather shoes that contain bright runes on its soles. Created by a renowned magician-inventor as a marketing gimmick, it contains basic instructions to help teach the wearer how to behave in public. When sitting, if the wearer places one leg over the other, it will suddenly become twice as heavy and force the wearer to keep both feet on the ground. If the user’s walk is with feet pointing to the sides, it will give out a blast of air to affect the user’s balance until they adjust to keeping the feet pointing straight ahead. If the user moves fast enough to have both feet off the ground at once (for example a run or a skip) then the shoes will create small fireworks that bang and pop all around the user until they slow down.

Robed Prosecutors The robed prosecutors of Ashuln are both revered and feared for their devotion and lawful powers granted to them by the city-state whenever they wear their formal robes. But recently, another figure dressed as a prosecutor has been targeting the other law-makers. Who is this figure and what do they want? How far are they prepared to go to deal out their brand of vigilante justice?
Ribs Ringleader A Bone Doctor is not just a medical practitioner but someone who can wield the arcane to manipulate bones and bend them to their will. This specialist skill starts with carrying out experiments with bones from a corpse. They can learn to alter their shape to sharpen them and use them as flexible weapons. They can also mend the bone fragments. Once this is achieved they can manipulate their own bones, fixing damage sustained and even temporarily dislocate in order to squeeze out of a tight situation. As they advance they can move the bones through air using only the power of their magical connection with them. A highly skilled Bone Doctor can even manipulate other creatures’ bones, causing damage and controlling their movement.
Professes Started An item that is in the form of incense. In its presence, those that are not aware find themselves professing truths and internal thoughts. The effect comes in three stages, without the creature knowing that they are communicating personal information.
Stage 1 – Say out loud how they’re feeling – DC 12 Charisma save Stage 2 – Say what’s on their mind/what they’re thinking – DC 14 Charisma sav Stage 3 – Confess the deeds and guilty acts they have commited – DC 16 Charisma save
Creating Roleplay ideas based on randomly generated words. Here’s today’s selection. Discover more about Rallies Swings, Events Tilting and Reserved Sawdust.
The thieves guild has an assault course that tests their agility and ability to work together. New initiates have to wait till at least four creatures are ready to join the guild before they’ll be considered. They must then take the assault course together by each completing a lap of the course with a bundle of goods (represented by a sack of stones) and passing it onto the next initiate. Failure can be very costly as there are not only dogs chasing the runners but also swinging weaponry to dodge and walls to climb. Those that get hit by the assault course obstacles can become crippled for life or even die.
Events Tilting Ambal’s Trembling Disk is a very powerful magical item. Its size makes it very distinguishable as is it has the appearance of a black rock and so heavy that it uses a four-legged stand, making it a similar size to a desk. The central-top area of the disk is separate from the outside. In shape, this central area is flat and then curves into a ball at the bottom. A skilled magic user who has taken time to master the device can project a visible area of land up to 300 ft. onto the disk and start physically moving the central part of the disk up, down and around. This causes the chosen area of land to do the same, affecting any creatures or buildings in that area as if hit by an earthquake. It has been used in city defence and even carried into battle warfare before. But where is it now?
Reserved Sawdust In the Gamalen Forest, the wood lives on beyond the death of the tree. This wood attempts to protect the soil beneath by crawling worm-like on the ground and find the best place for it to finally decompose. One clever entrepreneur realised that if the wood is taken from the forest, it can have other uses. Reserved Sawdust is a thieves’ favourite tool to cover their tracks as when dropped on the ground it looks for damp patches to cover and divots to fill. Before long, the ground looks as if no one walked there at all.

Extremely Parenthood The Basin of Innocence if a profound place, which includes many items of curiosity as well as some wondrous magical items. The feeling when entering is hard to avoid, however and affects the whole body. It is a squeezing, popping sensation as if sucked through a worm hole whilst flying at high altitude. Those who are swept up in that feeling (the equivalent of failing a Wisdom saving throw in D&D 5e) become very young versions of themselves. Roll 1d6 +6 to determine their new age. Now, best try and retrieve the object they came there for (if they can still remember) and find a way out. The age effects last for 1d6 days after leaving the Basin.
Pampering Caves The Doljer Hills have an extensive network of caves and hot springs, which attracts many travellers and rich aristocrats with ailments, who flock to the bath houses to be pampered and revived whilst enjoying extensive views of the plains below. But those that do make the journey must make sure they go to the right caves, for there are also many faux bath houses. Many travellers have found themselves in bath houses run by bandits, who store stolen goods further inside the cave complex, and also bath houses of ill repute for other activities. Which will your adventurers discover? How far into the cave complex do they wish to go?
The Fellowship House is a bastion of civilized society, where ideas are shared, the ways of the world debated and much feasting is had. But it is built on the back of slavery, much of which has been imported for labour. However, there is a plot underway by the servants to overthrow their masters. Will their plot be translated in time, and if so, whose side will the adventurers take?
