Lately, I've been messing around with a quick and dirty weather generator for Wayfarers. I thought I would share the result.

I see it as my take on an executive summary of the 1E AD&D Wilderness Survival Guide. Wink

Now, if only I was knowledgeable enough in programming, I would try to make an automated version... Embarassed

EDIT: Fixed broken link.

No kidding, huh? I actually picked it up the other day. The page count is a miracle considering what is actually in it.

But this on the other hand, is useful and concise!

Do you mind if it goes up on the resources page? http://yeoldegamingcompanye.com/resources.htm

I'm going to be doing some housekeeping here on the site once Twylos is out of our hands. It would be a great addition.

Thanks, be my guest. Smile

I finally took the time to make an Excel spreadsheet as a companion to the PDF file. It ain't pretty but it does appear to randomly generate weather conditions on the press of F9 based on the rules described in the previous file. Very Happy

EDIT: Added some instructions to make the spreadsheet more user-friendly.

Thanks Meta.

I've just added it to the resources page.

I've uploaded a cleaned-up version of the Excel file to make it more user-friendly.

Thanks, Meta.

I'll swap this with the one on the resources page.
