Dungeon Sounds for Redbrick

Your party bickering about rules or a mapping detail or telling some crap story about their lives? Just throw in a few of these and watch paranoia set in. In a self aware magic dungeon, the dungeon spirit might make these just to spook travellers who don't respect the peril they are in. You don't need to resolve these sounds. But possibly you might. Or just blame on ghosts. Some noise travels through drain and air pipes or echo from some distance. Dungeon acoustics might be magical.

Cults In Space: Colony Cultist Peril

Working and gaming lots over next week so might not post daily.

So iv done various cultist colonies and cult clues for colonies with suspicious events in the past but this is about a single cultist in a colony and how they might use their position for trouble or start to spread their cult. They could be new arrivals and given posts while players are on the scene or well entrenched. Someone might become a cultist by finding texts, personal desperation or contact with entities. Some beings might contact via mental projections but will lure the recipient to stronger contact like by building a gate. Often such a person keeps these matters quiet and grows more insane. Some might be deluded into thinking they are helping the colony. Others see themselves as curing the cancer of humanity. One of these should liven up any colony.

War With The Goblinoids 3 gossip and magic

Goblin invasions might be periodic in some places, arising when the population grows big enough or the seasons and crops are kind. When the goblins leave they might leave all kids of shrines, ruined junk, pet creatures and soldiers behind. It might take years to clean them out. One of the worst problems is that other forces might take advantage of the goblins weakening a nation and invading. So don't be surprised if goblins soften land up for faerie or giants or other countries invade.

Possibly should have included some elf and dwarf allies for the human lists earlier
Elven Rangers - composite bow, sword, leather, elite skirmishers, irregular, Morale 8
Elven Warriors - chainmail, shield, spell, spear and sword elite regulars, regular, Morale 9
Dwarf Warriors - chainmail, sheild, battle axes and throwing axes, regular, Morale 10
Dwarf Crossbowmen  - with chainmail, crossbows, hand axes, regular, Morale 8

Also Goblins army lists could include...
Zombie - unarmed, fearless and expendable, regular, Morale 12
Hobgoblin Musketmen - scale, musket, bayonet, sword, regular, Morale 8

One day will do book of invasions with a narrative combat system, all my invasions and army lists. Ideas for future invasions include: Chaos, trolls, crusaders, barbarians,  insectoid, hell, old ones, xor, amphibians, dwarves, and more. Suggestions welcome. Was planning a siege series too with events for people inside and outside a siege.

Gossip - to cover wild stories of atrocities, failure and propaganda
Loot - particular goods flooding the market during the invasion

War With The Goblinoids 2 Encounters & Wonders

So the invasion begins! Feel free to use bigger dice as war goes on try d10 for first week for example. Higher numbers are braver. Also goblins being puny and often mooks so here is a quick goblin ally table.

d10 Goblin Allies1 Hobgoblins - goblin kin but independent tribe rather than newly mutated
2 Bugbears 
- goblin kin but independent tribe rather than newly mutated
3 Kobolds 
- goblin kin but independent tribe rather vassals or slaves
4 Xvarts 
- goblin kin but independent race from cold regions
5 Norkers 
- goblin kin but prehistoric throwback mutants, independant tribe
6 Orcs 
- not goblin kin but often have similar enemies, goblins wary of orcs
7 Beastmen - many independent tribes lusty for war and happy to fight humans
8 Dark Faerie folk* - former masters of independent goblins or possibly patrons
9 Bright Faerie folk
 - former masters of independent goblins or possibly patrons
10 Giants
 - former masters of independent goblins or possibly patrons
*will do dark faerie war one day but just use faerie war for now

Different goblin factions might have different allies. Allies might not get along with other allies but most agree there are too many humans and the need to eat the extras. Some allies of course might invade on own or follow the invasion with their own when goblins retreat (just like 1066 you beat off vikings then get normans invade a week after - sorry for viking joke).

Do i need to do allies for each warzone?
Considering hero tables for each warzone
Possibly need a leader table to?
Your thoughts are welcome and helpful
