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.
