Guard Duty

If you have ever worked a boring job, you know the monotonous mental fortitude that’s required to keep yourself on-task. Few occupations are more boring than guard duty and it can be expected that any seasoned member of security that isn’t currently on alert or being actively monitored by a supervisor will begin to drift into inattentiveness. Adventurers who are trying to slip past such distracted defenders may be watching for these lapses. To help adjudicate such surveillance situations, I have created a random table that you can use to see exactly what your witless wardens are up to when they start to slack.

Creation Questionnaire

My friend, Evil Tim, is running a game in the Fallout universe. If you don’t know, it’s a post-apocalyptic wasteland survival kind of setting. During character creation, we took the G.O.A.T. — Generalized Occupational Aptitude Test. It’s a multiple-choice personality quiz that helps you determine your skill loadout in the video game and in our tabletop game, it determined our starting class in the d20 Modern rules. We answered the questions as our characters-to-be would. Then, he told us our results. It was fun and a perfect fit for the campaign. And I started to wonder what else you could do with the idea.

Video Village

Fantasy games are set just far enough away from our modern reality to feel exotic. But presenting a realistic feel for your unrealistic setting can be difficult if you didn’t happen to ground your imagination with a foundational major in Ancient History. Luckily, we live in an age of digital knowledge! Travel with us through the Video Village to find educational and entertaining examples of how things used to be.
