Random Starting Equipment for Conan/ZeFRS

It's been a while since posting about Conan/ZeFRS. I'm still plugging away at the second leg of the one-shots. I ran the first one, Mogg's Mountain, four times, even squeezing in a face-to-face game and am still very much in like with the action-packed system.

And of course that like means that I continue to tinker away with variants. (For more discussion on this game boogie over to the ZeFRS discussion board.)

Building off my random character generation system for the game, I put together a random equipment generator to supplement the simple menu choice from the original game.

What do I Own?

  1. OT (Big Time) but thought you might find it useful it from the Jackson Gamers' their, Medieval Nicknames, kind of fun for a pre-battle set up


    To generate these Medieval Nicknames, roll a D20 for each player. Began the count where the first person’s nickname was. If that nickname already used, go down to next name.

    Examples: The first person rolls a 12 and his nickname is “the Plunderer”. The next person rolls a 10 and so starting from 12 and counting down, we get “The Baptiser”. The next person rolls a 12 again (wrap to beginning if you go off the bottom) and becomes “The Firm”.
