As a taste of an upcoming Little Spaces project, I’ve put together a small generator that simulates going through the process of rolling on the three different tables: the Sense table, the Descriptive Element table, and the Sense Descriptor table. From these tables you can create a collection of terms with a little context to inspire your writing a little.
In this case, it’s about fancy meals and foods. Let’s say your group is attending a feast or just getting a quick meal at the local inn. You can use the descriptive elements to see what’s there that’s interesting and come up with some text that describes it to offer some sensory feedback.
For example, if you end up with “Smell[Sense]: Non-alcoholic Drink [Descriptive Element]- Acidic [Sense Descriptor]” you might come up with:
“You strongly suspect that whatever the barmaid just put in front of you in a mug may have gone bad. The acidic smell assaults your nose like a band of unwashed goblins attacking your front door. Maybe it’s supposed to smell that way. Maybe it’s gone rancid. Or maybe she’s trying to poison you.”
Here’s your descriptive elements (one or more will appear in a list below):
Based on these results, try to compose a description that suits your needs or inspires your writing. If the combination is nonsensical, refresh the page and try again.
