ADVENTURE IDEAS GENERATOR
This page gives ideas for adventures, that can be used for stories or role-playing games.
It's not designed to write entire plots, but to give you ideas to start you off.
For example, if it tells you that 'a boggy field, buzzing with stinging insects' is a goal, maybe a powerful magic item is lost in that field,
or it's a useless territory disputed by two arrogant warlords, and the goal is to negotiate peace.
The ideas are designed for fantasy (for example Dungeons and Dragons, Lord of the Rings),
although you might find it interesting to try and 'translate' them into another style, say science fiction.
For example, with the same goal, perhaps it's a landing field on another planet, but the insect-like locals consider it sacred ground.
BEGINNING THE ADVENTURE
The inhabitants of a town ask the heroes to deliver something, unfortunately by travelling via ominous ruins.
Someone who keeps slaves, was sane before their mind was broken by evil., and is fiercely territorial.
The body of a prophet, preserved by miracle or magic.
A life-size copper statue of a cat, which purrs if stroked.
Someone who respects their king and the law, considers a law before obeying it, and would rather talk than act.
A ship in a bottle, with a note saying only to smash the bottle in direst need.
A city, known for its general unhappiness, where the inhabitants live in harmony.
Someone who follows a strange and improbable cult and is a hunter and herder.
A prized object turns out to have a will of its own.
