Last week I presented the idea I was working on of including some Fiasco character generation for the new D&D campaign I’ll be running starting this weekend. I included the Relationships Table in that post.

So today I present the second table – Desires & Needs. This was a lot harder than the relationships table but for the same reasons that the relationships required a re-write from classic Fiasco playsets – the goal is to create characters with goals and relationships that provide us with a bit of interpersonal background between the characters without also setting us up for the one thing that Fiasco does so well – a fiasco.

So, without further ado, here’s the Desires & Needs table (presented with the assistance of several people on google+ and rednightmare on Reddit)

Desires

1. To Get Rich

     1. … by killing every monster you see
     2. … so you never have to adventure again
     3. … to establish a stronghold
     4. … enough to be above the law
     5. … -er than anyone else
     6. … enough to pay for your habit / obsession / research

2. To Be A Hero

     1. … to one special person
     2. … in the eyes of a mentor
     3. … and lord it over everybody else
     4. … who nobody will fuck with
     5. … if only in appearance
     6. … that bards will pen epics about

3. To Crush Your Enemies

     1. … and loot their corpses
     2. … and hear the lamentations of their people
     3. … to serve your country / kingdom / liege / etc
     4. … and get your revenge
     5. … to make an area safe for you to operate in as you please
     6. … but leave a few alive to spread the tale

4. To Get Away

     1. … from this town
     2. … from all these damned elves
     3. … from a life of poor decision making
     4. … and put your bad luck behind you
     5. … from a life of crime
     6. … with reinventing yourself

5. To Get Respect

     1. … on a throne of your foes’ skulls
     2. … and impose your justice
     3. … from your peers / brothers in arms
     4. … from your family / clan / guild / church
     5. … to earn the king’s favour
     6. … and find a following

6. To Indulge

     1. … in drink and luxuries
     2. … in forbidden rituals and lore
     3. … in bloodshed
     4. … on a home of true grandeur
     5. … a friend
     6. … in quiet contemplation in the faith of your dark/bright lord
