There are times where you need to throw together a quick adventure with very little notice. Here are a few tables to quickly create an interesting quest for your players to partake.
This simple 3d6 block is great for providing the framework to flesh out a quest.
If I were to roll 1,6, and 5 for example; the adventure could be to destroy (1 kill/destroy) secret orders to round up the dwarves (5 idea) to work in a military internment camp to provide the military with iron (5 militant).
In contrast 4, 5, 4 would result in the adventurers needing to retrieve (1 retrieve) a long lost scepter belonging to a dead enemy nation ( 5 item) that will bolster the people’s morale when facing another expansionist monarch (4 ideological).
If you need further help with a location to ground the quest in here is another d20 table for you.
