Help with a Dark Sun Random Adventure Generator


#1

Hello everyone. I’m putting together a Randomized Dark Sun Adventure Generator, and I thought I’d ask for a bit of help from the community.

Here’s what I have so far: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1vjJ01PC9ZKEHkKTkLVjRrOtHtFglKmOMnKP4mbr25tM/edit?usp=sharing

It operates by randomly picking combinations from lists of Nouns, Verbs, etc to make a rough adventure hook. The grammar won’t be polished, but it’ll be nice in a pinch when you’re out of ideas for the night’s session, or as a way to brainstorm new adventure/campaign ideas.

I can put it together myself eventually, but honestly I’m too lazy/busy to populate the lists. So, I thought maybe everyone could just post a few (or a bunch) of ideas for the lists (or suggest improvements), and we’d get a pretty large pool of options fairly quickly.

I’ve already got some words in the lists. General and specific words are fine, and both would be great. (for instance, both Sorcerer King and Hamanu will be equally great nouns as the “Quest Giver”).

I know not all the combinations will necessarily make sense, but sometimes figuring out how to make sense of a confusing combination can lead to some really interesting ideas. (for instance: “A Templar Begs the party to Burn Down a Thief in/at a City despite/during a Famine.” - What could that possibly mean?)

I’ll leave the link up once the Generator is finished, and post a improved copy if I manage to come up with a better way to accomplish this w/o using a spreadsheet program.

So… let’s hear some ideas!
