d6 Demiurge, Part 1: Yes/No.

Edit: The whole d6 demiurge is available as a PWYW Pdf at DriveThru RPG: https://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/347048/The-d6-Demiurge-Protocols-for-Solo-Play


I'm working on some simple d6 tables for running a solo/referee-less game (they should also be handly little referee tables for keeping the game chugging along with interesting stuff). Here's the first, the obligatory yes/No table.

Part 3: https://lizardmandiaries.blogspot.com/2021/02/d6-demiurge-part-3-npcs-and-party.html


Ask a question with a yes/no answer and roll a d6: 


If a “Yes” is unlikely, roll 2 or more d6 and use the highest. If a  “Yes” is likely, roll 2 or more d6 and use the lowest. 


Yes/No table: 

  1. Yes.
  2. Yes and, 
  3. Yes but, 
  4. No but, 
  5. No and, 
  6. No.  

And table: 

  1. There's an obvious additional boon. 
  2. There's a delayed/hidden additional boon.  
  3. The impact of the answer is amplified/only experienced in the realm of the mind.  
  4. The impact of the answer is amplified/only experienced in the realm of the body.  
  5. There's a delayed/hidden additional bane.  
  6. There's an obvious additional bane.  

But table: 

  1. A nearby/obvious associated bane is overcome.  
  2. A distant/hidden associated bane is overcome.  
  3. There is an associated challenge of the mind.  
  4. There is an associated challenge of the body.  
  5. A distant/hidden boon is defeated/destroyed.  
  6. A nearby/obvious boon is defeated/destroyed.  

I'll illustrate the series with demiurge images because they are fun.

    1. Once I finished it I intend to use it to solo explore Infinigrad. So, yes!

    1. Part 2 should hopefully be my next blog post. The table is actually already written, just need to post it.
