Finally spent some time tuning up my Monster Island daily event generator to be able to publish it. This first one is for coastal or jungle encounters. Later on the ones for cloud forest and upper plateaus of the island may be published.
It could be useful for a hex crawl in Monster Island. The material is based on Monster Island and Bird in the Hand from Design Mechanism and additional material from Raging Swan Press tuned to Monster Island atmosphere. Raging Swan Press products Primal, Woodland, Campsite, Cave and Rainstorm dressing are used here with permission.
Some of the look and feel for the blocks will be refined later on.
Here are the things it will do for a GM.
It will create an event from Monster Island daily events – either the standard or special ones. Any monster encounters there will have a link to Mythras Encounter Generator and ready to generate. The chance of the monster comes from the Monster Island jungle encounter chances. There is a larger variety of beasts in some of the categories. Some of the party encounters are also mapped out with a link to MeG – more will come in later.
Weather temperature will be shown for both day and night. There is a chance of Rainstorms. Humidity will also be calculated.
There are some descriptions for environment and trees and other plants for the environment. For each of the tree and plant types there is a description where it might be located in the area and also name and genus of the plant and what they might be like. There is also a chance of a minor event.
Encounter rules are based on Bird in the Hand (great scenario) hex crawl rules. If any encounters happen they will have a link to MeG as in above.
Finding shelter is necessary when camping out in the Monster Island. The rules from RAW and Bird in the Hand are briefly referenced here.
Provided the adventurers find a campsite – it is shortly described here. There might be some events happening during the night.
Some things about campsite terrain are opened up here.
You will find the generator at toolsfrompavis. Select the choice starting with Monster Island Daily – Jungle Only.
The generator is built using the very useful campaign logger tool.
