Want a quick and slightly silly plot hook, adventure seed, story arc, or background detail? The Problem Mini-Gen is here for you. It alerts you to trouble spots in the vicinity such as:
- There is a problem involving a rodent, a crescent moon and a purse. Aneam Keares the wanderer will tell you all about it.
- There is an uncommon problem involving a thug, a crutch and a goblet. Ethan Leasela the actor will tell you all about it.
- Natrael Ciyrav the blacksmith has a very large problem. It involves a detour, a scoundrel and coins.
Whether you need something to throw at the players right away, something to spark your creativity, or just something to make you go "huh?" for a few seconds, the Problem Mini-Gen is the way to go.
The program is written in .NET, so it should work on all recent versions of Windows and quite a few *nix boxes and Macs as well. (Assuming you have an emulator; I've tested similar programs on Mono on Mac and Wine on Linux and they worked on both, though there are sometimes slight glitches on Wine.)
