"I think I should warn you all, when a vampire bites it, it's never a
pretty sight. No two blood suckers go out the same way. Some yell and
scream, some go quietly, some explode, some implode. But, all will try
and take you with them."--Edgar Frog
I've been running Hobomancer at conventions and have discovered that sometimes it's hard to come up with names for the generic small towns that the characters end up in. Now I can just roll once on each table and combine whenever I need to know what town the characters are walking into.
A lot of times, I'll start off a game by asking the players to describe what their characters are doing. While this always works out well with the Hex group (with the intro scenes often becoming the focus of the adventure), I've found that groups who are used to more typical mission-based role-playing don't really run with the concept.
Since I can't think of an interesting table theme this week, here are some random tables to use when you need to come up with Words for a Sword & Sorcery character (expect more like this in the future).
