The Transient Bazaar (A Merchant and Marketplace Generator for Guild Dogs)

An updated version of the below PDF is now available as a PWYW PDF on RPGnow/DriveThruRpg. It uses all public domain images (the one below has 4 chopped up images that weren't public domain). Find it here: http://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/188261/The-Transient-Bazaar 

Growing against the outer walls of the Bone Fortress (the ornate octagon housing The Law) is an amoebious market, The Transient Bazaar. The bazaar is fueled by the voracious appetite of the Guild Dogs, settled on the muddy grounds of the Bone Fort’s courtyard. They hunger for treasures rare, dangerous, unusual and arcane to assist them in their dubious careers. As the dark seasons of The City pass, new merchants erect makeshift stalls against the white walls. Merchants leave when their scant stock has been exhausted, journeying afar in search of new oddities.  

Use the PDF below to find out what is being sold in The Transient Bazaar, and who is selling it. 

(Stall and merchant results will no doubt work for other urban fantasy settings).

Random Encounters in The City

Who are they and what do they want?


 What do they look like (and how many is there and how are they armed)?


Notes and Instructions on 1 way to use The City Visual Generator: 

I used the visual generator to brain storm unusual entities whom might be wandering the city by combining a randomly determined square from a "People" grid with a square from an "Aspects" grid (the pages I used are seen below). It was fun (and very quick) squishing the disparate visual elements into a single cohesive entity and I'm looking forward to creating more entities and places using the Visual Generator.

The City Visual Generator PDF

This is a "Visual Generator" PDF for my "The City" setting.  I'm running the campaign using The Black Hack (Guild Dog Character Class Here) and need ideas more than I need rules/words, thus a visual generator! It's 90 pages, mostly images and uses a weird grid thing to allocate results. It might be of interest to others running city campaigns (make sure you apply the final "aspect" table to everything so your city is nice and weird). 

Update: I have released a very similar pdf as a PWYW release on RPGnow/DriveThruRPG. It is a much more focused affair, concerned with the generation of unique merchants. It also includes text tables (where as this PDF did not). Find it here: http://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/188261/The-Transient-Bazaar

The Black Hack: Guild Dog Character Class

The City is a setting born of my fever dream conglomeration of Ravnica, Lankhmar, Sigil and New Crobuzon. The setting is coupled with my personal preferences to run Shadowrun-like mission based sessions (here's a job board, just pick a job and finish it, you will get some XP and Gold) in a Lawful Evil world (more details on that here). The idea has languished , unused and unplayed , in my mind for a few years (although, +Karl Stjernberg did make a very nice set of rule and tables for playing it). After picking up The Black Hack, it struck me that the system would work nicely for running Guild Dogs.

Every player in the party plays a Guild Dog, but the process of rolling up a Guild Dog is very randomized resulting in a diverse, wild group of weirdos. Players current Guild Dog character needs to die before they can roll up a new one. 


Mike Mignola
Guild Dog Character Class for The Black Hack: 

"The Law is a curse that prevents any of The Guilds directly raising arms against one another within The City.

The Guilds still hate each other though. And even though they have weapons in their arsenals that could implode whole galaxies they can't use them against each other. Instead their forced to use the scum that sit even lower than The Cities lowest underclass. That transient, gold-hungry class of outcasts the rest of The City looks down on. The Adventurers.

Only The Adventurers, those vagabonds who exist outside the normal strata of The City's social spheres, and its infinite network of shady alliances, can truly claim non-affiliation with any of The Guilds. Only they can keep the century long conflict going.

That's you. You're the deniable trash The Guilds use as their deadly puppets against one another. You are a Guild Dog."


(Text from here).


Guild Dog Character Creation:

  • Roll stats as normal

Players roll to randomly determine  the following core abilities:
  • Starting HP, HP per Level/Resting.
  • Armour Training.
  • Attack Damage.
  • Character Special Features.

Players have a d4, d6, d8 and a d10 to allocate to each table. For example:
  • Starting HP, HP per Level/Resting = d4
  • Armour Training = d8
  • Attack Damage = d10
  • Character Special Features = d6  
The then roll on the following four core ability tables using the dice allocated to determine the value of that core ability.

Before rolling: Players can “burn” all their dice down to a d4 to be automatically granted an especially strong result in one of the core abilities (listed below).

Core Abilities:

Starting HP, HP per Level/Resting: All characters start with 4 hp + their HP die.
Players may “burn” all their core ability dice down to a d4 to have their HP die be d12.

1-4: d4
5-6: d6
7-8: d8
9-10: d10

Armour Training:
Players may “burn” all their core ability dice down to a d4 to have training in Heavy armour and shields plus a natural + 4 to armour.

1: Light
2: Medium
3: Light and shields
4: Medium and shields
5-6: Heavy and shields

Attack Damage.
All weapons are available to all Guild Dogs, but their damage is dependant on the following table.
(1dx=WeaponDamage/1dx=Unarmed/ImprovisedDamage).
Players may “burn” all their core ability dice down to a d4 to have their damage be:  1d12/1d10

1 -3: 1d4/1
4 - 5: 1d6/1d4
6 - 7: 1d8/1d6
8 - 10: 1d10/1d8

Character Special Features.
Roll to determine how many randomly allocated special features character receives from each category.
Players may “burn” all their core ability dice down to a d4 to manually pick their special features from each category rather than have them randomly allocated. They are able to roll a d8 rather than a d4 on the Character Special features table below.  

C = Category, ie: C1 = Category 1.

1: C1: 1.
2: C1: 1, C2:1.
3: C1: 1, C2: 1, C3: 1.
4: C1: 1, C2: 1 C4:1.   
5 - 6: C1: 2, C2: 2, C3: 1.
7: C1: 2, C2: 2, C3: 2.
8: C1: 2, C2: 2, C3: 1, C4: 1.
9-10: C1: 2, C2: 2, C3: 2, C4: 1.  

See below for Random Special Features tables for each Category.

Leveling up: Players roll twice to see which 2 attributes they get to roll twice for a chance of increase at level up. A player may burn a d6 to a d4 from their core ability dice to select their 2 attributes instead of random allocation. If a player gets the same attribute on both rolls they get to roll on that attribute 4 times for a chance of increase at level up.

  1. Strength
  2. Dexterity
  3. Constitution
  4. Intelligence
  5. Wisdom
  6. Charisma.
 

Raceoid: Each Guild Dog is allocated a random Raceoid. Raceoids are not too dissimilar to humans with minor changes to appearance and mechanics.

The Guild Dog must sleep in the corpse of the target it wishes to inherit the ability from for at least 6 hours. The GM will then notify the Guild Dog what special power it has gained. This process will warp the Guild Dog’s body to reflect the new power gained. The more power this Guild Dog has the more bizarre and mutated they will appear (consider an impact on CHA). The amount and type of abilities this Guild Dog can inherit is reflected in the Daily Conjurer Spells table. The  “spell slots per level” value is now “HD of target ability”. Now the numbers in the table reflect the amount of abilities a Guild Dog can inherit from specific HD targets per level. For example, a level 2 Guild Dog could inherit 2 abilities from HD 1 creatures and a level 5 Guild Dog could inherit 4 abilities from a HD 1 target, 3 from a HD 2 target and 1 from a HD 3 target.

If the twin dies the Guild Dog loses half their current Hit Points and 1+their level Hit Points from their total Hit Points (until the next time they level up). It takes 1 day to resummon a twin. At level 4 the Guild Dog can summon 2 twins. At level 8 the Stats of the twins is equal to 3 quarters of the Guild Dogs rounded up. At level 10 the Guild Dog can summon 3 twins.
  18. Blood Link Hedge Magic, after a blood sharing ritual which takes 1 hour, this Guild Dog shares a Hit Point pool with their target.

When the pool drops below 0 Hit Points, the Guild Dog rolls on the Out of Action table. On a result of 2+ the effect (Fat Head, Cracked Bones, Crippled, Disfigured, Dead) is given to the other participant in the ritual and the Guild Dog only receives a Fat Head. At level 4 the Guild Dog can transfer 2 points of any 2 Stats from one participant in the ritual to another. At level 8 the Guild Dog can have 2 participants in the Ritual (allowing a shared Hit Point pool of all three and allowing 1 participant to receive 2 points of 2 Stats from 2 of the other participants).

The Stats of the golem is determined by the Guild Dog level; 1 - 3: 1d6, 4 - 5: 2d6, 6 - 8: 3d6, 9+: 4d6 drop the lowest.
