WTF: Random reincarnator

Written by Expy - Published on August 7, 2007

WTF : Weird Tools Files # 5

The geniuses at Slack & Hash have outdone themselves once again. The random reincarnation generator is very dear to me because it was kind of a request that stemmed from a discussion on how to kill all your PCs – right here on DMing. Only kill them all if you really have to, of course.

Shit! I’m a weasel.

Is it useful?

I cannot stress enough how useless this tool is for your weekly D&D game. However it should keep you entertained for a while.

Meet Expy The Red Dragon

Expy is the mascot for DungeonMastering.com and the real mastermind behind Expy Games. He likes to hoard treasure, terrorize neighbors, burn down villages, and tell white dragon jokes..

No matter how fearful the legends claim dragons are, they always end up being defeated in 5 rounds by adventuring parties they encounter. That’s what dragons are – experience points for the heroes in your Dungeons & Dragon party. And this mascot is no different, hence the name Expy.

    I object! The reincarnator can actually be used in a D&D game. Provided you ignore the more frivolous details, that is.

    Improvements to that device are in store. As soon as I can get a decent list of partial memories sorted out… :)

    All right. Phil has a point. It can be used in a game. I am sorry for any psychological harm I might have caused by saying the opposite. I hope you will one day forgive me. :)

    I actually planned to post this article about the reincarnator tomorrow but it’s so funny I posted it ahead of schedule.

    (shows the analyst the psychological doll) And the review touched my ego there, and there, and there

    This was actually a very popular activity for my mom’s gaming group. Whenever she game mastered the characters were given a “ring of reincarnation” that, when the character died, automatically reincarnate the characters into whatever came up on the random encounter table in the 1st ed dmg for the terrain/area they were in at the time. The rest of the party could tell it was them because the reincarnated character would still be wearing the ring…
    “Ok, so my halfling sneaks into the cave to get a look at the dragon and see if it is wearing any jewelry; It might be the fighter…”
