D&D Features
Inn Generator

By John Hasznosi


Can’t think of the inn’s name off the top of your head? How about the name of the barkeep, the menu, or the prices? Who’s currently present? What conversations can be overheard? What’s the general mood, and why? John Hasznosi created the Inns in an Instant tables to provide quick answers to such questions, allowing the DM to focus on more important things, such as how to introduce the next plot hook or run the upcoming encounter. As a holiday bonus, we've gone ahead and incorporated these tables into a new Inn Generator.


Talk about this feature here.

So at the end it was just a glorified RNG table...

...and yet it's free, fun and a handy little tool.
Very handy tool for any edition.  Good job!
I run a lot of taverns by the seat of my pants. This should help quite a bit.

One of my results was "The Drunken Drunkard".

That made me laugh. So simple, yet so elegant.

He said to me: "It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. To him who is thirsty I will give to drink without cost from the spring of the water of life. -Revelation 21:6

Any man's death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind, and therefore never send to know for whom the bells tolls; it tolls for thee.-John Donne, Meditation XVII

Pair it up with the Tavern Generator from 11 years ago!

That I didn't have to do an ounce of work for.

Here are the PHB essentia, in my opinion:
  • Three Basic Rules (p 11)
  • Power Types and Usage (p 54)
  • Skills (p178-179)
  • Feats (p 192)
  • Rest and Recovery (p 263)
  • All of Chapter 9 [Combat] (p 264-295)
A player needs to read the sections for building his or her character -- race, class, powers, feats, equipment, etc. But those are PC-specific. The above list is for everyone, regardless of the race or class or build or concept they are playing.
 I love it. Not only is it easy but it can provide plot hooks, that the PCs can pick up on if they want to. 
Very useful.

I would love a downloadable version as well.
