Heroscape Random Map Creator

A long time ago, I found a really awesome map creator that had you rolling the d20 to decide certain aspects of a map. It was really useful for quick building if you wanted a general idea. Since I can't find it, I've made my own. If you do know where it is, please put the link up on this thread and I'll add it to this post.

Roll 1: Size

(when I say hexes, I mean the 1st level of a battlefield can use up to the number specified by the roll. You can stack tiles as you please, except for the maximum height, which will be rolled for later)

less than 70 hexes: 1-5
around 120 hexes: 6-15
more than 192 hexes: 16-20

Roll 2: main element

Grass: 1-5
Rock: 6-8
Swamp: 9-11
Ice: 12-14
Lava: 15-17
Castle*: 18-20

*Castle walls are always placed on level one tiles


Roll 3: Height

3 levels: 1-2
4 levels: 3-7
5 levels: 8-13
6 levels: 14-16
7 levels: 17-19
8+ levels: 20


Roll 4:Number of highest points:

1: 1-4
2: 5-9
3: 10-13
4: 14-17
5+: 18-20

Roll 5: Ruins

Add ruins: 16-20. If yes, then roll again for the quantity of ruins. Pair =
1 long and 1 short ruin.

1 pair: 1-7
2 pairs: 8-14
3 pairs: 15-20


Roll 6: Water

Add water: 16-20. If yes, then roll for how many rivers. They can go either through the length or width of the map.

1 river: 1-10
2 rivers: 11-15
3 rivers: 16-20


Roll 7: Road

Add road: 16-20. If yes, roll below.

a road lengthwise: 1-10
a circular road: 11-20


Roll 8: Shrubbery

Add shrubbery: 16-20. If yes, roll below.

Add evergreen trees: 1-10
Add Jungle brush: 11-20

Roll again for how many sets.

1 set: 1-7
2 sets: 8-14
3 sets: 15-20


If there is anything I missed or should change, let me know and I'll see what I can do.

Re: Heroscape Random Map Creator

I think I really like this idea! I think I'll use this at my gameday tomorrow.
What about adding dungeon, shadow, swamp water, and rock outcrops?

Re: Heroscape Random Map Creator

Excellent idea!

The only modification I might suggest is something like:

Water: 13-20 for there to be water.
13-16 Ponds
17-20 Rivers
If Ponds,
1-7 Small Pond
8-14 Medium Pond
15-20 Large Pond
Then, 1-10 Normal, 11-20 add in small Island.
If Rivers,
1-7 One River
8-14 Two Rivers
15-20 Three Rivers.

(Adding in options for ponds/lakes.)

Re: Heroscape Random Map Creator

I doubt this would mesh well with the style of build I tend to end up with, but it's still a fantastic idea. Kudos!
