OSE Encounter Activities - Black Dragon (Compilation Sneak Peek)

Work continues on compiling my OSE Encounter Activity Table Project into a single, unified reference document. Wrangling the tables into contiguous spreads where necessary and fiddling with font-size/etc. has been going well.

Here's a single page sneak peek of the current state of things (nothing is really finalized at this stage) with one of the Namesake Monsters: the alphabetical first of the Chromatic Dragons: The swamp-dwelling Black Dragon!

Since “Activities” for these Monsters probably are not as varied from Dragon to Dragon as I would like, these are designed to function almost a bit more like “Rumor” tables or as a way to bestow a more bespoke Black Dragon for your tables. Hopefully by fleshing them about a bit in this fashion, it will make these types of terrifying encounters a little more interesting!

  1. More excellent work! I admit that when I read "receive a degree of veneration from gnolls" I imagine a whole graduation ceremony with mortar boards and gowns and speeches in draconic but I realise that's not what you meant... "I majored in veneration but I took frivolity as an elective"

    1. Ha! That's a brilliant interpretation and I could actually see that working in some of my sillier games :). Chomp & Circumstance!

  2. Hi there, your blog was recommended to me from a facebook group, its an amazing well of resources! I do have a question, is there a place where I could easily get all of your resources in one place? Half of the problem with the hexcrawl I am designing is going backwards and forwards trying to find things!

    Many thanks for your hard work
