The People of Hommlet PDF

The People of Hommlet PDF is finally complete. It lists the stats and information of 17 NPCs from Hommlet on three pages. When working on this I converted the NPCs over to be used with Swords & Wizardry Continual Light.

Now that these two accessories are complete I will start working on the One-Page Adventures for this campaign.

But, I must first discuss something that is pretty important about this project. Mainly, The People of Hommlet. T1 The Village of Hommlet was published in 1979 and then republished in T1-T4 The Temple of Elemental Evil in 1985. While reading through just the T1 section while working on this project I noticed something that was a bit off and upsetting. There is NOT a single named/keyed/statted female character in this book. Not one.
Now, I wrote The People of Hommlet as what was given to me within T1. But I would highly recommend, or even demand really, that you make some of those NPCs female or even trans, non-binary, gender fluid or whatever. Just something that isn't male. None of the allies or foes presented within Hommlet are female. They are all males and they also appear to be all human rather than any of the other races of the realm. I may even go back and change some of these NPCs so they are not all males. But really this is such a simple task any GM can do on the fly. The stats don't change. Just maybe the names.

Well, on to the brainstorming I must go for this Series of One-Page Adventures for The Temple of Elemental Evil.
