New Campaign Setting for SBH

So, my group made a setting for our most recent campaign.  We decided we may as well put it online, in case anyone else wants to play in it.  We are now in the process of making a series of narrative scenarios set in this world.

Refereed Scenario Generator

If you want to write a refereed scenario, but don't have any ideas, you can roll up a quick plot idea on this chart.  It should be enough to get your imagination going so you can flesh out the idea into a story.  Then fill in the story on your refereed scenario templates.

This sheet is heavily inspired by the generator tables in Flashing Steel and this one by Ralph Mazzo.

Event Cards for SBH

It's great when you have 3 players for a 2 player game, so 1 Player can referee the game and throw in unexpected events, plot twists, and surprises.

See my sheets for designing refereed scenarios


But when you don't have a referee, you can use Event Cards.  These cards will allow players to cause surprises and changes to happen in the middle of a battle.

The idea comes from an old Necromunda supplement by Andy Chambers, Jervis Johnson, and David Moretti.

Every time we play, we invent another 2 or 3.  The current count is 30 - our goal is 52 (so you can use a regular deck of cards and print on label paper).

Refereed Scenario Design Sheet


I'm a big advocate for Refereed scenarios in skirmish games.  Here is a little sheet to use when making them.  It may be familiar for you old folks who played original Rogue Trader 40k, but it works well for any skirmish game.  It's currently labeled for SBH, but don't be fooled.
