At the end of my last DCC ↑ session, we left off with the players saying “We are leaving the village in the morning.”
I’m not entirely certain where they are going. They have two similar looking maps with minimal information. I spend a few minutes drawing those up as handouts.
I’m spending an hour whipping up a random encounter table for the region.
Random Encounters near Bitterweed Barrow and Hirot
Every 5 mile hex, roll 1d6. On a 6, see below. Outside of the Barrow Ward, roll 1d7. Inside the Barrow Ward roll 1d7+3.
|1||Devil Frog (1) [DCC 402]|
|4||Orcs (1d6x5 and Boss) [DCC 423]|
|5||Troll (1) [DCC 429]|
|6||Witch (95% 1; 5% 12) [DCC 434]|
|7||Men, Bandits (2d6) [DCC 432]|
|9||Varooth Moss (1) [Nebin Pendlebrook's Perilous Pantry]|
In addition to the above table, I’m looking at the introduced cast of characters and setting a few of them in motion. I’m using Sine Nomine’s An Echo Resounding and Wizard of the Coast’s Birthright as a rough planning tool. Regardless I want to make sure a few things happen behind the scenes.
All told, I’m not entirely certain where we’ll start the session; Some players may need to level up their characters.
