Harlequin Masque Creation Tables

From 1d4chan

Yet to see one of these for Harlequins, so here it is.

Composition of the Masque[edit]

How many Players belong to the Masque? (d10)
1–3 Extremely small number of Players, with only the bare minimum in specialist actors and vehicles.
4–6 Standard sized. Enough Players for the traditional 3 Troupes plus a few specialists and vehicles.
7–9 Large. Enough Players to fill each Troupe many times over, and many specialists and vehicles.
10 Grand Masque. The Masque is so large that it is made up of several Masques.

How is the Masque composed? (d12)
1-4 A fairly standard composition, with the majority of its members being regular Harlequin Players.
5-7 Most of the Masque's Players are skilled pilots as well as performers, and each Troupe has far more vehicles than the average because of this.
8-9 There is an unusually large number of Shadowseers within the Masque.
10-11 Many of the Masque's Players play the role of the Death Jester.
12 For one reason or another, Solitaires are a fairly common sight within the Masque; sometimes, there are even several at a time.

Which Troupe is the most influential within the Masque? (d10)
1-3 The Troupe of Light. The Masque finds itself in the spotlight as heroes and saviours, always leading the heroic charge.
4-6 The Troupe of Twilight. The Masque's actions make little sense to the outside observer, as actions seem random, chaotic, and seemingly without reason - until each and every small act comes together to accomplish their bizarre goal.
7-9 The Troupe of Dark. The Masque is one of sinister and violent means, revelling in the fear and sorrow of their enemies, waiting in shadows until the cruelest of tricks is played on their targets.
10 The Masque's specialist actors. The specialists of the Masque are highly regarded, and the Shadowseers and Death Jesters of the Masque carry a great weight of responsibility.

Which Troupe holds the smallest number of Players? (d10)
1-3 The Troupe of Light. You will find few heroes and saviours within the Masque's ranks.
4-6 The Troupe of Twilight. The Masque is full of great deeds and sinister plots. Shades of grey are a rare sight within this Masque.
7-9 The Troupe of Dark. Honourable guardians and grandiose performances are a common sight. Rarely does this Masque take on subtler means.
10 The Troupes maintain relatively equal numbers. It is hard to say which Troupe outnumbers which, and it is easy to find all kinds of faces and personas.

The Troupe Master[edit]

Which Troupe did the Troupe Master previously belong to? (d12)
1–3 The Troupe of Light. A true hero and saviour to all.
4-6 The Troupe of Dark. A deceptive and sinister schemer.
7-9 The Troupe of Twilight. A mad genius, or simply a fool?
10 The Troupe Master was previously a Shadowseer.
11 The Troupe Master was previously a Death Jester.
12 The Troupe Master is of an unknown origin.

91-95 Personal tales of the Masque, and its victories against Cegorachs enemies.
96-98 Warnings of the Chaotic powers, and prophecies of doom and misfortune.
99-100 The Masques performances are far too abstract and metaphoric for those outside of it to gather any understanding of the plot or narrative, but those who know where to look and those in desperate need will find invaluable insight in critical matters.

What is the usual moral of the Masques performances? (d10)
1-2 Hope. So that they may know a better day.
3-4 Fear. So that they may change their course.
5-6 Sorrow. So that they may better understand their loss.
7-8 Joy. So that they may revel in their victories.
9-10 Guilt. So that they may suffer justice for their actions.

What shape do the Masque's performances often take? (d25)
1-4 Tragedies. Performances that end in death, suffering, and loss, and where all our heroes meet truly melancholic ends.
5-8 Histories. Performances detailing the countless ages of the historic Eldar past, and the lessons that may be learned from them.
9-12 Comedies. Performances that end well and true, where no matter the costs to get here, once the end has been reached, everything is where it should be.
13-15 Acrobatics and dance. Daring feats of agility and majestic ballets, using the body and its motion in order to create breathtaking shows.
16-18 Music. Operas, ballads and songs of the pre-fall empire. By using musical performances, the Masque can truly touch its audiences soul.
19-20 The Masque's performances are so unique they are unable to be placed into any other category.
21-24 Dark Comedys, nihilistic performances where everything either ends poorly for everyone involved or a despicible protagonist achieves a bittersweet victory all presented in a mocking fashion where the joke is the inevitability of death and the futility of existence.
25 Performance in mime, the Masque performs its shows solely through mime with out a single word spoken roll again on this table(rerolling doubles of this result) for the type of performance the troupe acts out in silence

What makes the Masque's performances truly spectacular? (d20)
1–5 Several audience members always find themselves playing a role.
6-9 At least one observer always ends up losing their life.
10-12 A certain number of audience members can never be found after a performance ends.
13-15 Each audience member remembers a different performance.
16-17 No one remembers the performance or its actors, simply that it happened and the feelings that the show left them.
18-19 The characters in the show are members of the audience, played by the Masque.
20 The show started long before the performance began, and continues long after the performance ends.
