I get quite a few questions about how (my) Hex Flowers work. Fairly recently I uploaded some videos to YouTube where I play test these HFs with accompanying diagrams:

Complete Playlist – as above, but including all the actual plays e.g. boss fights etc.

 

Of course, this is not the only (or best) way to use HFs. This is just me testing HFs on a pal that has never used them before.

Background – what’s a Hex Flower anywho? A Hex Flower (HF) is like a random table, but with a memory.

TLDRQ – what’s a Hex Flower anywho? A Hex Flower (HF) is like a random table, but with a memory.

I get quite a few questions about how (my) Hex Flowers work. Fairly recently I uploaded some videos to YouTube where I playtest these HFs with accompanying diagrams:

 

    • Video 1 – HF used to explore into a maze like giant insect nest using ‘Carapace

 

    • Video 2a – HF used to explore out of a maze like giant insect nest using ‘Carapace

 

    • Video 2b – (if necessary jump to time ~ 1hr 16min) – HFs used to generate wilderness terrain, weather and encounters (procedural Hex Crawl) using ‘In the Heart of the Unknown

 

 

  • Video 4 – Party get in a pickle – Trial by Jury Hex Flower

    • Complete Playlist – as above, but including all the actual plays e.g. boss fights etc.

 

Of course, this is not the only (or best) way to use HFs. This is just me testing HFs on a pal that has never used them before.
