What’s on Their Festering Dead Body Table for Hubris

It’s been a bit since I’ve done a Hubris post….  The editing is going well.  I have roughly 60 pages left to edit, and then onto the next phase- kickstarter and all that!  My girlfriend is doing the second round of proofs, and I am making the edits to hers and my changes…  It’s been a fun ride creating Hubris, but man am I ready to be done with this!

Anyways here’s a table of random horrific items that you can find on a creatures dead body.  Just insert these where you (as the Judge) feel is fun and interesting to do.  Once an item has been rolled, cross it out and create a new one.

Table 8-X: What’s on Their Festering Dead Body
2d30 Item(s)

6 Vial of coagulated blood

11 Incense stick x5- they smell really good
12 Everburning torch- always alight, but no heat
13 Winter blanket- smells like goats and mold
14 Intestines of a Bloated Pig Demon- used as high quality rope and stomach serves as a grappling hook

36 Winter Scarf- it’s warm, but really ugly
37 Bag of Marbles
38 Ulcerated Stomach of the Three Pronged Goat- stomach is used as a bag that can hold items.  Already holds 2d5+2 random items, many of them (Judge’s call) are weird, horrifying, and yet strangely entertaining

47 A Vial of a Child’s Tears- invigorating to good chaps and horribly toxic to naught blokes
48 Face of a Scorned Lover- can “rip off” your own face and wear this flesh and become a beautiful woman.   Personality bonuses, voluptuousness, and attitude abound!  You are flooded with emotions and memories that are not your own and they are often acute and painful!  You can only take her face off when committing the act she was doing when she died….

57 Brain Preserved in a Jar- The label on the jar says the brain belonged to “Abby Normal”
58 Blood stained bandages- smell of infection and rot
59 3d100 copper pieces

    I will have to use this table in my next session. I’ve been using your deities for Hubris in my campaign, and they are a big hit with my players. Looking forward to being able to back this.

      Glad your players dig the gods! It was fun writing them. My players got tangled up with Yelsa and had two clerics of her and one became (a mutant) an apostle of her will.. Good times.
