If you can't come up with an adventure, you can use this page for inspiration. Below you will find three random links to other pages on the Arcana Wiki. Use them to come up with the basic idea for an adventure, and share your idea with others.
Note: Sometimes the random pages listed will include index and other pages without inspirational material. This is a known issue, and will be solved eventually - see the To Do List for details. In the meantime, if you find a useless combination simply wait a minute or so for the Random Page function to refresh, and reload the page.
List of Random Adventure Seeds
Enter your own adventure seed into the list below. Use the "Random Adventure Seed" template to create the new page, and give your entry the "adventure_seed" tag. Do not feel too constrained by the keywords you have generated - they are supposed to serve as inspiration, not rules. For example, if you get a specific city as a keyword, you do not need to use that city as background - instead, use a prominent element of the city as inspiration for a similar locale in your adventure.
Furthermore, once you have created a new adventure seed, don't forget a link to it from each of the three component entries so that others can easily find it! Do so at the beginning of the "Game and Story Use" section in the following manner:
