The Planes of Hubris- Weird Dice Generator for the Planes

Vortex

 

Planes are cool and I enjoy putting extra-dimensional encounters/travel into my games.  I wanted to create a quick die generator for Dungeon Crawl Classics that will be used in my Hubris game.

 

This gives me a few interesting tidbits that I can flush out myself, rather than having to read a bunch of stuff that my players may or may not interact with/give a shit about.

 

All you do is drop the following dice: d3, d4, d5, d6, d7, d8, d10, d12, d14, d16, d20, d24, d30.

Then consult the table below.  Once you’ve generated a plane scratch them off and write new stuff in its stead.

  1. Sopping wet, covered in ectoplasm
  2. Completely normal, but all your clothes and possessions are at your feet.
