d100 Loves Gone Wrong

Still 3 game logs behind and 2 articles on roadwar coming but finally did a d100 while on bus and travels. Reading books has been partly to blame for writing less. Damn - nobody learnified nothing from books!

My games have lots of weddings and babies but not enough horrid romantic tragedies. Will go under my gothic collection eventually.

Reading Irish fairy tales was good inspiration. Potions that make people forget love seem pretty handy thing for druids, but even then the mind wiped have subconscious bitterness.

If you were evil could apply to players loves but I might make them more avoidable. Once should be enough for a few years in most cases. You could roll for loved one of a king or friend of party to start a scenario. Perhaps even roll for dungeon boss.

The d10 version is for a quick problem with the d100 being a expanded version with more specific woes
