RPG Towns are perfect vessels for all of your beautiful NPCs. Perhaps a Quest Giver can help you have mercy by dropping hints of a “Legendary Cure-All.” Don’t forget to check out our other generators.

Who’s on watch? Roll perception.. Good roll. The wind shifts and for a moment you smell sweetbread – the kind your grandmother made when you were small. As you lift your nose to the breeze, the air shifting through the branches carries faint notes of a cornet. After a moment the sound fades and you look around the sleeping party.
