Autocorrect Inspiration


Sometimes scenario and setting ideas come from the weirdest places.

Today on Facebook there was a conversation about the ‘biggest cataclysm in your campaign’. One of the comments included (something like)

William: “The Dim Sun lasted for months, ruining crops. This led to widespread death, famine, and petulance. […]”

Me: “Autocorrect? I think you meant ‘pestilence’.”

William: “I did, but people were pretty unhappy about it.”

Me: “I imagine so. ‘Mo-ommm! How come I got Black Plague and Billy didn’t?’ ‘Shut up and be thankful you got anything for Christmas at all.'”

William: “… now I need to play this.”

It doesn’t take much to spark an idea sometimes.
