Does anybody know of a site/app/whatever which lets you click a button and randomly generate ruins/courts/challenges/etc. for Godbound, preferably using the tables in the book? I know adventure generators are pretty easy to find, but Godbound is obviously different enough from standard OSR games that what a standard generic adventure generator would produce doesn't apply.

Also, has anyone created a Roll20 macro that translates all damage into Godbound-compliant damage? I've been trying to do the math manually, but I am crap at math, so.

Thanks!

What do you mean by translating the damage?

+Josh Eaves I would imagine he means "converting a 2d8 damage roll of 4+6 into 3 HD of damage inflicted".

+Josh Eaves I mean taking straight damage rolls and translating them into the 0-4 damage per die system Godbound generally uses. For example, a monster that hits for 1d6 damage will do between 0 and 2 HP of damage to a Godbound PC, with a result of 6 being read as a 2, a result of 2-5 being read as a 1, and a result of 1 being read as a 0.

That's not particularly hard to understand, but it does get more difficult when reading multiple damage dice, because you have to translate each one separately. I'd prefer to automate that bit for the sake of speedy play if possible. Hence my request for a Roll20 macro.

+Dave Sherohman Precisely, thank you.

Have you checked out Sixteen Sorrows? I use that and two ruins and/or communities for most of my adventures.

I am not sure you can offload the whole process electronically though, as the GM needs to put the pieces together.

I'm not asking for the process of adventure creation to be offloaded. I'm asking for the ability to press a button and get a series of relevant results from the tables in the book spat back at me, similar to the more famous automated sector generators for Stars Without Number.

I guess I shouldn't say "adventure generator," since there's not really one in the core book. I basically want to be able to quickly roll on multiple tables in the book instead of rolling on each one separately, then get a block of results spat back at me.

For example, let's say I want to generate a Criminal Court (pg. 109 in the corebook) for a court-based adventure. Currently, I'd roll on the Organization Power Structure table (pg. 104) and write down the result, then roll on the Main Line Of Crime table and write down the result, then roll on the Major Actor table three or more times and write down each result, then roll on the Power Sources table the same number of times and write down each result, then roll on the Conflicts table and write down the result, then roll on the Minor Actors table and write down each result, then roll on the Consequences Of Its Destruction table and write down the result, and finally roll on the Court Defenses table and write down the result. At that point, I'd need to extrapolate on the results I wrote down.

That task is not as onerous as my exhaustive accounting of all the steps might make it seem, obviously, but it's more time-consuming than choosing "Criminal Court" from a drop-down menu, choosing the number of major and minor actors, clicking a button, and getting this back:

CRIMINAL COURT

Organization Power Structure: [insert result here]
Main Line Of Crime: [insert result here]
Major Actors: [insert result 1 here]
[insert result 2 here]
[insert result 3 here]
Power Sources: [insert result 1 here]
[insert result 2 here]
[insert result 3 here]
Conflicts: [insert result here]
Minor Actors: [insert result 1 here]
[insert result 2 here]
[insert result 3 here]
[insert result 4 here]
Consequences Of Its Destruction: [insert result here]
Court Defenses: [insert result here]

That's all I'm looking for.

EDIT: Changed "adventure generator" in the OP to "ruins/courts/challenges/etc.* to more accurately reflect what I'm looking for.

Here. lastgaspgrimoire.com - Choose Your Own Generator
This makes custom random generators. I used it to make Ruin and Court generators for my games.
