Encounters in the City

Life in a city of some size is never dull. The poor huddle for warmth behind the churches and mansions of the upper crust, thieves and smugglers dodge the king’s guards, merchants hunt for the perfect bargain, and most people simply try to survive.

This table is designed for a European inspired fantasy set in a technological and cultural age equivalent to the Middle Ages up to the Early Modern Period (ca. 1100-1750 AD.).

Give me five!

A cat-sized dragon burglar with the Coral Reef core quirk collects something one of the characters own or just goes through their belongings for the sheer fun of it. May visit several times before they realize who, or rather, what is making a mess of their stuff.
A famous troubadour and singer takes a shine to a character, trying to wine and dine him or her before putting on the moves. The troubadour will have moved on to new pastures in a day or two, regardless of how things turn out.
A member of a minor cult, sect or faith is preaching in the street while a few of her brothers and sisters approach passers-by for donations to the cause.
Two vendors selling similar goods get into an argument that degrades into a regular fist fight. Meanwhile, street urchins make off with most of their wares out of their carts or baskets.
A poorly constructed wall of a half-timbered or clay building collapses without warning. The heroes must race against time to dig out the people who were caught under the rubble and provide medical assistance to the injured. For those heroes of a less than ethical orientation, there’s also the opportunity to rummage through the ruins for loot (although the people who live in shabbily constructed houses may not be the people with the most loot to hide away).
