2018-03-16 Adding Wights

OK, so I wanted to add wights to Hex Describe and I thought of bog graves.

A swamp in the west...

This is what my Halberds & Helmets Referee Guide has to say:

Names: Eilif, Kali, Kyran, Maura, Tariq, Thyia, usually King or Queen of something or other, mostly realms that have been forgot-ten a long time ago: Abilard, Erlechai, Merlen, Ouria, Yzarria.
Numbers: 1d8.

Using the tables below, this is the output you get:

0204: In the old days, this bog was used to drown evil necromancers. At night, 2 wights led by Old Maura of Merlen crawl out of their wet graves and roam the land in search of more followers.
0504: In the old days, this bog was used to drown evil necromancers. At night, the wight King Tariq of Ouria crawls out of a wet grave and roams the land in search of followers.

There’s still room for improvement. Does Old Maura lead one other wight or two other wights? Oh well.

Here’s how I did it:

;bog wights

;wight crawls
