Dungeon Gatherers

These wise and old women know how to gather all kind of stuff from dungeons. When they settle near a dungeon, this is usually good news as they will tame the dungeon until they move to the next one.

They know the old language of all things and their favorite songs. These secrets let them navigate the dungeons, haggle with any of it denizen and negotiate with it traps. "Oh poor rusted lock, don't spit your needle, I will sing you the song that make you shiny again."

They never take gold or treasures from dungeon but they sometimes move it around or hide better to please the dungeon denizens. They collect instead all kind of useful and quirky objects that they will later trade with villagers.

They travel around in colorful caravans, they visit villages built near dungeons, asking questions about the dungeon and often receive gifts from villagers. They set up their camp near a dungeon and discuss with it main entrance and with nearby creatures to better know the dungeon history and it personality. "This is one is a sad and grumpy dungeon." They will befriend and harvest the dungeon for a whole season before moving on to the next one.

The Gatherers only fear bandits and other brutish humans but it is ill advised to menace or trouble them as they are in good relations with all sort of creatures and their caravans are often guarded by pet mimics.  

When they visit a village, the Dungeon Gatherers will accept any outcast women, cis or trans who want to join their caravan to become a apprentice. Sometime outcast men also join their caravan but they are rarely initiated.

Abilities

The Old Tongue
This language let you speak with items, animal and monsters. When you speak with something it remember the language and forget it afterward. The only beings it have no effect on are humans. This let the dungeon gatherers speak and make reaction tests with nearly anything, including doors, traps, items, etc. 

The Ancient Etiquette
Learning the Ancient Etiquette take years of apprenticeship. It teach you how to properly address all things and grant a point bonus to reaction tests at level 3 and 7. It also let you test your Intelligence score to anticipate what a item or monster would require as a service to help you. 

The Songs of Mending 
These old songs let you mend things. To figure the proper words to sing you have to make a wisdom test. Some older and stubborn things are harder to mend and inflict a penalty. You can only use these song on something that is well disposed toward you.  

Listen! 
When things go badly you can strike the ground with your staff and everyone will stop fighting or arguing to listen to you. You can call upon this power once a day and once a night. Gatherers refer to these as the Midday Strike and the Midnight Strike. 

Bargaining 
You deal a hard bargain, especially when you trade with villagers and you roll with advantage when you make bargain related tests. You never bargain anything for gold or coins. 

Everything is of value
The whimsical things you gather in the dungeon award you experience points if your game system award XP for gold. Gold belong to the dungeon and should not be looted. Looted dungeons are angry and harder to discuss with. 

Mimic's affection
Wild mimics seem to be found of the Gatherers and on a good reaction they will follow them around for a day. After that they will get lazy and sleep. Mimics that venture out of their dungeon sometime join the caravan as a pet. 

A other take on the mimics companionship from the comments: "people would be absolutely frightened to know how many mundane objects they use almost on a daily basis are actually "inert" mimics. dungeon gatherers know how to gently sing them awake. once per day (or something like that) dg can awaken a mimic from its inert state. there must be suitable object nearby for this to work. awakened mimic will be grateful and will serve the dg that sung it into awareness for a day before wandering off to do mimicy things."

Children of the Unknown

This is inspired by Searchers of the Unknown and Monsterparts.

You play a group of people who are growing up in a isolated small town.
Two generations ago a mythos entity contacted the town.
Your grand-parents knew about it, some experienced it directly.
Your parents avoid talking about it.
You know that something is strange, that something is not right here...
The influence of the mythos still linger in your town.

You are a teenager or maybe a young adult.
  • You have 1d6 hp (health points) and 1d6 sp (stability points) 
  • You have a AC of 9 and a MV of 12
  • You have no weapons
If you need to make a physical, social or mental test you need to roll above 12 with a d20. If this is something you have some experience or aptitude for, add your Level to the roll. If you receive help, receive +1 by person helping.

You start with 1d6 creep points that represent how much your town is creeping you.
  • If your creep points are over your HP you have a penalty of 4 to any physical tests.  
  • If your creep points are over your SP you have a penalty of 4 to any mental or social test.
When the GM describe something creepy (or not) you can award them 1 to 6 of your creep points.
If the GM described something creepy and you did not award them creep points they can award you 1 to 3 creep points.

If you have too many creep points you can tell what you have seen to a other PC and give them one of your creep points. You can also confide yourself to a NPC and give them creep points but this can  make them more creepy or put them in danger.

The GM record who or what receive creep points.

When you are interacting with something that received creep points, roll a d6, on a result of 1 they receive a extra creep point and the GM must spend one or more creep points to trigger a creepy event or to spawn creatures. The GM can also decide to spend creep points when they desire.
  • 1 creep point trigger a event that inflict a Damage or Shock Die. 
  • 2 creep points spawn a creature of 1 Hit Dice or Shock Dice (1die per 2 creep points spent). 
  • Events affect all the group and grant a saving throw against them.
  • Events happen once but creatures stay around. 
  • Creatures must hit your character to inflict their damages.
  • Creatures inflict 1d6 of HP or SP damage, they can do a extra attack for every 2HD they have.  
  • HD creatures are only affected by physical damages and SD creatures are only affected by rituals. 
  • Spawning a horde: if near a mythos lair, site or divined time, the GM can spawn a extra creature for 1 additional point per creatures. 

The group collectively gain XP by making contact with the mythos:
  • Sighting a event or creature: 100xp per HD or SD
  • Investigating something creepy: 50xp per creep points. 
  • Studying something left by a event or creature: 100xp 
  • Surviving a direct interaction: 100xp per Damage or Shock point received. 
  • Learning a ritual from something creepy: 100 xp per creep points. 
The rewards are by encounters.

Gaining levels
  • The group collectively gain XP
  • It take 2000 XP to gain a level. 
  • When the group level up each character gain 1d6 to share between HP & SP and 1d6 of Creep points.
  • Level represent how deep the group is venturing into the mythos, as if they were venturing deeper into a dungeon.
  • Each session the GM receive creep points pool equal to the group level. The GM can spend those points on any NPCs, items or locations.
Corruption
  • You receive 1 pt of corruption each time you reach 0 hp or 0 sp.
  • Each time your corruption go above your max hp you receive a physical corruption.
  • Each time your corruption go above you max sp you receive a mental corruption.
  • Physical corruptions are mutation and mental corruption are delusions.
  • Instead of gaining a point of corruption you can choose to remove your character from the game to heal a other PC by a number of HP or SP equal to the group level. 

Regaining HP and SP
  • Characters regain one HP and SP each morning.
  • Character can also create emotional ties with NPCs to regain points.  

Emotional ties:
  • If a character roleplay or narrate a positive scene with a NPC, award this NPC 1d3 points of emotional ties. 
  • Any character can later visit these NPCs to spend these points to refresh HP or SP. 
  • If you have a fight with a NPC, reduce their emotional ties points by the group level. 
  • If a NPC with emotional ties points die or go insane, the group receive these points as shock damage. Go around the table and ask each player how many points of Shock their character takes (they must take at least 1 point), repeat this until all the points are distributed.
Rituals
  • Ritual can be learned from something or someone that have creepy points. 
  • Learning a ritual inflict a point of corruption. 
  • Each ritual affect only a specific creature.
  • Rituals take d6 round to casts inflict 1d6 SD. Characters you participate to the riual can also convert spend the SP to generate additional damages (one for one). 
  • The GM can also design rituals that have specific functions like travelling to a other plane, bringing someone back to live, etc. The effect of these rituals must be super specific. Casting these ritual inflict 1d6 SD to the participants (they can distribute the SD among the group).
Notes
  • To gain XP the characters need to award creepy points to things that the GM introduce or describe. By doing so they communicate what interest them. 
  • If the group spent all their creepy points they will receive new ones when the GM describe something obviously creepy. 
  • NPCs who receive creepy points are not necessary corrupted, this may just mean that they are more in danger of being exposed to a mythos event. 
  • The characters are fragile but getting to zero HP or SP don't remove them from the game, except if the player decide it. 
  • The game require some bookeeping from the GM to record what or who received creep points and the emotional ties points of NPCs. 
  • This is all experimental and I have not playtested anything here (but I would love to).

Adventure Planet Generator

A while ago after reading Jack Vance's Planet of Adventure (Le Cycle de Tschaï) I tried to write a setting generator inspired by it. While procrastinating I found back that old post and I completed the generator on Perchance.

The basic premise is that a human generation ship crashed on a earth like planet situated at the frontier of different alien civilizations. Each alien civilization built a colony on the planet and decided to uplift the surviving human population. Some humans continued to survive in the wild.

Centuries later a second human ship arrive in orbit to check on the lost human colony but one of the alien factions shot the ship down and only a few survivors make it to the planet surface.

The PC can be these survivors or they can be wild humans trying to survive in the shadow of the alien colonies.

In Vance's series each book is about one of the different alien colonies and their relation with the local human populations. The alien colonies have advanced technologies but they are also vulnerable as they are all far away from their home civilizations. The aliens should probably be non playable but the GM should create a few individual alien NPCs who have views or values different from those of their colony.

Colonialism would be the principal theme of this kind of campaign and it should be discussed with the group, probably using lines and veils.

The Adventure Planet generator create five alien colonies. their uplifted humans servitors and the local wild human populations. It also generate relationships between these colonies.

I guess that the generator could be also used for a campaign inspired by the SF comics Prophet.

I would recommend using Macchiato Monsters or a Sword & Planet RPG to run this kind of campaign.
(Some character sheets I drew for a old session of MM inspired by Prophet)

Some covers of the excellent french comic book adaptation of Planet of Adventure:






Tomb of the Seamstress

Tomb of the seamstress
This is a small dungeon designed to be included in a sandbox. There is a good chance that a group won’t be able to pass the first door without some history between two characters.
