Generate Standard Mission

Generate Underworld Mission

What is this Madness!!!

Spacegamer.com - Standard Barony Mission:

This uses the Tarot Card to Generate a "Standard" Mission on the Fly as described in Designing Fantasy Missions as part of the Barony Set. (Standard means it is not focused exclusively on an Underworld.) No attempt is made here to define each of the finer points.

To begin, determine who the mission is offered to and call them the Party Leader (to accept / reject Mission).

Note: This mission is temporary. Copy it out now if you want it. (It pastes nicely into Word.)

Mission Title:

Party Leader:

- Ace Coins: Secret Revealed by Man now Dead; Patron will tell the players of an opportunity (i.e. his Mission and Motive), but then will perish -- past wound, poison, curse, assassin's act, etc. Do not pick a card for Finances (or ignore picked card) and ignore all Queen Encounters (future meetings and delivery from Patron), but Motive may be too much for players to refuse ("he's told us where to find our arch-enemy). Inverted, Chance Discovery in Ancient Crypt or Ruin; again the players here tell of a Mission and Motive in a discovery; they will have no Patron after the start. Again do not pick Finance (or ignore pick) and Ignore Queen Encounters, but a treasure almost always awaits. In either case, ignore the results of any previously selected Major Tarot.

- 4 Rods: Transport item(s) over land. Inverted, faster than Rival moving similar item(s).

- Knight Coins: Many different interest groups have banded together to oppose the mission. Inverted, the most unusual of people oppose the mission.

- 3 Coins: Seeks long term financial return. Inverted, seeks to secure a monopoly on trade.
- (Inverted) Wheel of Fortune: Reshuffle the deck and continue.

- (Inverted) 10 Rods: Clout to marshal and billet an army. Inverted, though perhaps having the clout to marshal an army, he could not afford to billet them -- has many friends also of no means.

- (Inverted) Knave Coins: Merchant Prince. Inverted, Pirate or Viking Raider.


On the way to the Mission Climax, the Party will travel through three game Phases which may be short or long (depending on the Tarot cards drawn). These represent the obstacles and challenges along the way to the Ultimate Climax of the Mission.

(A) Initial Successes:

(B) Challenges on the Journey:

(C) Final Travel to the Climax:

Climax Flow:
Referee creates the flow of the climax OR refer to Designing Fantasy Missions!!!
