d100 low level village mysteries or Goat Quest Missions

I could have just called this low level mysteries for rural dnd but goat appeal wins

Goat agents in the secret service of Nanny Binx hunt chaos, cults and evil in the countryside or normal low level adventurers encounter mysteries in the countryside.

Or whenever you pass as village roll here so players have sidequests.
Too many in the same village means burn the village down.

  1. How long does it take you to think up 100 ideas like this?

    1. depends one like this took three sessions while watching vids and was pretty easy over two days

      simple lists are a hour or two

      some with longer multiple sentences are slower and take days

      my list of stillborn blogs is 9 - ones where it felt overly ambitious and have been sitting about for months


I love and welcome feedback but not spambots
Good feedback and suggestions inspire me to write more
