Powers and Perils

Random Culture Variation System

This file expands on the Random Culture chart by Burton. These charts are based on population density percentages and breakdowns. So if 10% of the population is from one city it will get 10 percentiles of the dice. Once the culture is determined these charts can be used to further define the sub-area.

External - This is a rare case (1%) where a person is from the listed culture but not in the areas listed. For example a Marentian man could be born by Marentian parents on a Marentian ship at sea. External defines this instance. So the event (or person encounters) is Marentian but outside Marentian province.

Wilderness, Wilds, Duchy, Colony, Island define general areas where the person is from. If its not a city then it'll be from towns in the wilderness, duchy, colony or island.

A Referee is free to alter any chart. Some may feel a culture that fears outsiders would not have a person leave the area/tribe. So External would not exist as a chart item.

These charts are good for Random Human Encounters that outline Travellers or Foreigners.
