Welcome to the Ever Expanding Sandbox!

Not that I actually expect anyone to find this blog-equivalent of Tatooine, but if you have stumbled here, welcome!

Inspired by the Ever Expanding Dungeon my aim is to flesh out and develop a small sandbox via solo play using random tables, generators, and lots of dice! I had already started developing this sandbox for a short-lived PBP game, but never got further than generating the map, details of the main city, and ideas for adventure locales. I do have some specific thoughts about what I'm looking to develop, but I very much want to 'play' through its creation using numerous generators and tables to add a healthy (over)dose of randomness throughout.

As well as being an outlet to scratch my fantasy itch, I hope the developed sandbox will provide a rich setting for later least that is the idea in theory! And this blog will serve as a repository for my thoughts and ideas and as a record of the development progress of my sandbox. And of course session summaries from my solo play will feature prominently!

Welcome again to the Ever Expanding Sandbox!

  1. Great idea to generate a sandbox through solo play! I might have to try it myself.
