Some Thoughts on "Encounter Tables" for White Star
Something I've seen mentioned a couple of times in different places is a desire for "Encounter Tables" for the White Star RPG.
Questions to those that are requesting such:
Are you looking for "Encounter Tables" or "Event Tables?" I ask, because in my mind, events are more likely in the depths of space than encounters, although an event table would by necessity include encounters.
Would you expect your Encounter / Event tables to be setting / region specific? I would, and the default setting is by deign fairly sparse. Would the setting need to be detailed further before tables could be designed?
Encounter tables by worlds I would expect to be specific to that world. Again, would that not require a fleshing out of the relevant worlds? Or would it be enough to design tables by relative tech level?
If someone were to design a specific setting for use with White Star, would you expect encounter / event tables, and if so, how in depth would you want them?
Just some thoughts in the hopes of getting feedback. I know of 2 or 3 publishers already working on settings for White Star and the answers to these questions would be helpful to all.
