My Vornheim Contest Entry

Zak S, the author of Vornheim, is doing a kick ass contest that really speaks to the spirit of the book!

I definitely wanted to throw my hat into the ring for this one (even if I don’t win it is a awesome contest and maybe someone will find some use for this chart).

I went with this because after watching I Hit it With My Axe I noticed Zak always had a chart for potions and peculiar substances.

** This is a good opportunity to keep your players on their toes. For Other, if it fits your setting, you could say it’s Beaver venom. This departure from the norm will make them question what else is more than “mundane.”

Edit: I kept this system neutral so it could be incorporated in any game.

I am a History major attending a community college until I can get more financial aid and attend a four year school. I am living in NJ with my girlfriend who is currently wrapping up on obtaining her PhD in Toxicology. I love Star Wars, Role-playing, video games, working out, reading, writing, and hanging with my girlfriend, dog (Perfect), and two kittens (Birch and Brambles). My main focus on this site will be my discussion of Role-playing games and ideas and hopefully contribute something worth a damn.
