Vaarn! I curse each letter of the name.

I curse the blue sand that infiltrates every pore of my body, the creeping sand, which each night swallows a little more of the final camp we have erected upon the face of this pitiless azure desolation.

What Is This?

This Atlas is an in-game artifact, toy, generator, and tool for the science-fantasy tabletop roleplay game Vaults Of Vaarn (https://vaultsofvaarn.com/). This Atlas uses tables and tools from the Vaults Of Vaarn zines and streamlines their use. My intention is for this to serve as a useful tool in your campaigns, while also being fun to play with. Using the link sharing feature you will be able to share the same map with other people in your game.

Vaarn Atlas Plasteel Tablet

Instructions

Move the cursor with your mouse or keyboard, and interact by clicking or using the space bar.

Press R or click on the top right button to reload map.

Press C or click on the bottom right button to copy the link to clipboard. Sharing this link will let you share the same map with others.

If you click on a location you can freely move the cursor around without changing the textbox. Click again to unlock the cursor. Locking the cursor allows you to click on the dark underlined links in the description box. You can also double click a location to open the first links. Most links provide further useful information about Vaarn from the SRD (System Reference Document).

Make sure to try it in fullscreen so it is easier to read.

Planned features

  • Windows, Mac, and Linux builds
  • Github page (feel free to use the code or tools from this generator. The text content and font has licensing requirements that are specified below)
  • Mobile support (this is a maybe)
  • As more locations are detailed in Vaults Of Vaarn zines I will work on adding generators

Easter Eggs

  • Find Waldo/Wally (hint: search in the sand)
  • Meet KRONOS (hint: mess with the timeline)
  • Find a shrine to Venkarthim, The Doom of Ants (hint: search the streets of Gnomon)
  • Terminate a Titan-Era Virus (hint: find a secret panel)

This is the single most exciting thing for TTRPGS that I've seen in a very long time. It makes me want to learn Unity. It makes me have so many ideas. BEAUTIFUL.

Thank you Batts! This means a lot to me, especially coming from you. The Sun King's Palace is a brilliant digital tool/adventure that really inspired me!
