A Song of Ice and Fire Historical Events for Birthright AD&D 2nd Edition

The Historical Events table from the ASoIaF RPG can be folded into the Birthright Random Events table, or be another step in the turn. It could be a way to randomly increase/decrease holdings & provinces every so often. I'm going to try to translate that table into AD&D 2nd Edition Birthright lingo below.

Call it a Destiny / Winds of Chaos / Winds of Fate sort of thing perhaps. Maybe it would only once a year (at the end of every 4th Turn).


Roll 3D6

3). Doom

4). Defeat

5). Catastrophe

6). Madness

7). Invasion/Revolt

8). Scandal

9). Treachery

10). Decline/Descent

11). Infrastructure

12). Ascent

13). Favor

14). Victory

15). Villain

16). Glory

17. Conquest

18). Windfall
