Dungeon Cards, and maybe some solo gaming?

 

I have a little time on my hands at the moment in between filing out job applications and what not, and I stumbled upon Axebane's Deck of Many Dungeons and thought it was an amazing product. Of course I did order a deck, but it will not be here until the end of September! F*ck you world! Then it got me thinking (always a bad thing) and I started drawing out maps. 

As I am somewhat in a bit of a funk, and because none of my friends who can play will join me for White Box, I thought perhaps I might do a little solo RPGing using these once I get a handful of cards that could be drawn randomly. So far I have four pages (36?) cards. Unfortunately my printer here at home sucks and will not print on anything more solid than standard printer paper, so I will have to do some crafting (maybe modge podge the little bastards?) or perhaps visit a Kinkos.

Still have some work to do on the dungeon cards, mostly drawing two more pages. I really like how Axebane's cards have random tables built into the cards. For solo gaming, I think this would be fantastic. It also gives me the idea that you could create 'modules' from a set of unique cards that changes up the random tables based on the environment the module takes place on. Anyway, time to get back to looking for jobs.....why does the HR department suck everywhere!?!?

    1. Agreed, but getting a group together to play is hard, much less getting them to agree to WB.

  3. Well if you ever need solid, extremely well designed, thoroughly tested, highly intelligent rules for solo gaming, I got you covered: https://acornafloat.blogspot.com/2021/01/it-starts-to-burn-easy-rules-for-solo.html

    On a more serious note, I really like that character sheet in the background, is that your design?

    1. Love the rules!

      No. That is one of the official WB characters sheets, I tweaked slightly and resized so two fit on a page. That said, I'm working on my own to use.

  4. You, me and Bruttorz Bill and perhaps a fourth need to convene to play some randomly generated dungeon fun. It's a long weekend! Let's play for an hour or two and laugh our heads off!

    1. I am willing whenever you are. I am sure we could find another player as well. The hard...nay, the hardest part, will be getting Bill to join us!
