A downloadable game

Gen:Hex Basic was created as part of the One-Page RPG Jam 2021. 

Gen:Hex is a A6 size sheet (update: and now in US Letter Size) that has several tables to help you generate exotic locales, storied cities, fascinating NPCs and more - on the go! Fits nicely in the back of an A5 journal. Can be used for solo RPG play or collaborative. The parts aren't interlocking so you can use what helps you propel your story forward. 

Hope you find this helpful in your RPG adventures!

Hello, author! Thank you for your work, it helps a lot. Anyway i have a question: what do the lines "you roll 1d20. trap rolls 1d6. minor threat rolls 1d10. major threat rolls 1d20. best 2/3 rolls" mean? How can i use it? Thanks again.

Sorry for the late reply! 

That means you need to roll higher than whatever you are rolling against 2 out of 3 times to overcome or move past it. If you lose, you have to decide narratively what makes the most sense. 


@marchcrow the content of your pdf has a strange size

It's supposed to be A6. I state it in the copy here. Is there something else going on with it? ETA: I can post US Letter size if there's interest. 


Added a US Letter Size - hope that helps! 


thank you for this update!!
