What I have put on a same sheet:
- The settlement characteristic from the back of the referee book.
- A pre-gen tavern from the Vornheim city kit.
- the neighborhoods table from the Vornheim city kit.
- the relations table diagram from the Vornheim city kit.
- some npc from the back of the referee book.
How I have use some of those items:
- The relation between npc: Instead of placing NPCs in the table, I placed the town factions in it. I really like the result, nice stuff here. (I roll a d4 to determine the position of the first faction)
- For the NPC: Instead of giving four traits from the from the back of the referee book for each NPC, I rolled four traits for each faction and generated a NPC for each. So I end up with 4 NPC having one trait each for each faction.
- I rolled the noble on the Vornheim City Kit nobility table. But for a non-weird town, I think I prefer to use the referee book table.
About the NPC traits table on the back of the referee book:
I way prefer to give my NPC a single trait instead of giving them one from each category. I roll a d4 to determine on which category column to roll (or I ask the players to choose). This create easier to roleplay NPC and more colorful ones.
A blank sheet (nothing fancy here, I din't take the time to play with fonts, layout, etc)
Generating a settlement like this seem useful and fruitful to give life to a non-weird town. For a town where the NPC want to invest, buy a property, etc. I think it wort the time to roll all those dice.
But I think that the real fun is when you create weird town like Vornheim, because now you can go wild and be very creative.
The "normal no-fantasy world" aspect of LotFP is working less and less for me. I don't like having to divide my gameplay, prep, setting, etc... between normal civilization and weird fantasy. I have a really hard time finding buy-in for the normal civilization stuff.
Setting up a LotFP game again, I would totally play in Vornheim with a mega dungeon under it or in a weird wilderness sandbox like the Weird New World to avoid mundane gameplay.
