Module description

This is the Random Cursed (or Evil) Tavern Generator. It is a quaint parody of the conventional tavern module with a macabre connotation more typical of Halloween nights. It is designed to generate customers, menus and events that would be appropriate for evil races and humanoid monsters such as ogres, trolls or vampires, because man-eaters like to cook too! These facets are not strange since in popular folklore witches cooked their prey with aromatic spices and an elaborate preparation. Likewise, the three stone trolls in J. R. R. R. Tolkien's novel "The Hobbit" planned to cook their prey before devouring them. Therefore, in medieval epic fantasy it is a very used resource to humanize these perverse races and give more strength to their background.

This module can be used to create a vile and cruel environment to improvise a game with players with evil alignments and races. For example, it can be used to give an original touch to those taverns located in realms where cooking humanoids is common. Remember that these humanoids can be prisoners of war, slaves or criminals who have been sentenced for their actions in a trial. Even man-eating races may have laws and their gastronomic appetites may conform to it. Another possible interpretation is the taverns of orcs, undead (liches, vampires, intelligent zombies, abominations, etc) or the houses of witches. The latter opens up an interesting range for Game Masters, as they can incorporate evil foods into feasts by passing them off as common food, for macabre purposes and enslave their guests as forest witches do.

How does this module work?

Like its analogous module, it is enough to click on "Generate" to display all the content. Depending on the type of tavern the menus will be of a type or another, being able to select them in "Type of Tavern". The content displayed is on the one hand the name of the tavern, the owner of the tavern, the menu of the day, the customers participating in the pleasant evening and possible optional events occurring at that time. All the content has a horror story flavor, but being a tavern makes the content even more grotesque. Below we show some additional information for this random module of taverns of evil:

  • Name: The name of the tavern, canteen, pub, tavern or inn. It may or may not have any relation to its appearance or history, at the Game Master's discretion.

  • Tavern Keeper: Whether a proprietor or proprietress will be shown by race and name. 

  • Food Menus: Disgusting, repulsive and excessive, these menus are a horrific fantasy parody of everyday food. The menus shown will depend on the Tavern Type.

  • Events: These are macabre and lethal tavern encounters and games usually found in these places. They are entirely optional, as is all content in this module.

  • Customers: There are two types: on one side the generic characters (shown at the bottom of the box) that are typical customers that fill the scene; and just above them the description of two more detailed characters with a more interesting purpose, profession and appearance. The Game Master does not have to reveal everything, but he can give colorful touches to the description to draw the players' attention.

    For example: In the tavern there is a woman with torn pieces of flesh, a blank stare, an unpleasant smell and flies around her (probably undead). Several meters away from her sits a man counting bloodied coins, a mafioso caco maybe? Directly in front, occupying several tables at once, is a giantess wielding a large nail, she looks like she has been in a battle recently and is accompanied by a small goblin with some wagon keys. The goblin is probably her driver. After a while watching it seems that the goblin imitates his mistress in everything he does and keeps repeating her name
