Hey all, I compiled all of the tables into one odt / pdf for myself. Not official or anything but here it is if anyone wants it. :D
If I find myself using the suppliment often, I will make a DM screen for my own use for sure.

Hexcrawl procedures query

Post Tue May 11, 2021 3:27 pm

I'm really enjoying browsing through Revision 16 of the Hexcrawl Procedures.
Apologies if this has already been covered, I'm having trouble seeing every page or even posting a reply on the "Hexcrawl procedures?" thread - it might be just a Safari/ipad issue.

I'm thinking about totally random crawls here. When exploring any Wilderness from starting in a settlement, are there ways *within the game reality* to justify why it's a blank map or open table, i.e. it being totally unknown to the players? Surely townsfolk would know of nearby settlements and already be trading with them? Maybe there would be an awareness of a direction in which there are castles, mountain range or river? Are there campaign backgrounds DMs use to set-up the exploration of the totally unknown?

I had the same issue in the play by post threads but just game up trying lol.
As for the question concerning blank map: that is left up to the GM. you could easily define as much of the map as you wish ahead of time, including pre-defined dungeon locations, adventure modules etc.
Personally I start with a blank map for solo and group play. The setting background is generally "there was long ago a very prosperous empire in the land, which covered the landscape with towns and settlements. But that golden age seeming quickly declined relegating it to the mists of legend. More recent generational memory tells of this town being a self sufficient frontier settlement far from its kingdom. Grand parents tell of an old single road leading South back to the nearest kingdom settlement but it has fallen out of use as the kingdom was fell to the hoards and in fighting. This city/town has not received word from any other settlements for years and it's self sustaining nature has allowed the residents to live their lives as before. There has been little need to venture very far (beyond the 10km hex it resides in) since it is almost certain death in the wilderness. However a change in rulership has prompted the proposed bounty of coin and reputation for brave souls willing to map the wilderness, find trading partners, historical sites/treasures such as dungeons and ruins, or natural resources." Depending on your preferences, the settlements you find can either be nomadic tribes of natives, or full fledged permanent self sustained settlements who were also left on their own after the fall of the last kingdom.
Bottom line is, do with it what you like! Hope that helps.
