So let me start by saying i love the crossroads region book! It is an amazing peice of rpg literature. It fully describes the region in such vivid detail that it is breath taking to ponder the possiblities for game play as a GM. But also here in lays a logistical nightmare. It is so well written that it makes it hard to prepare. As a Gm i personally like to prepare the majority of the forces in an area that can become oppistion for the party. Not the random encounters mind you those i typically do on the fly but the stationary forces such as those that inhabit sttlements or raider home camps etc. The crossroads region is great it gives you the numbers of soldiers, armor and weapons carried and used, and much much more for every settlement in the region. A lot of the work is down for you but for a GM like me i have to have a binder with every sttlement and there complete force ready to go at anytime, this poses a daunting task of going threw the book and rolling everything that the book provides to determine each individual force. Its going to take months to do this or i could wing it if the party decides to attack a settlement. I will flush out the complete crossroads region based on the random rolls for every sttlement and the mutantions that soldiers my have and once i am done will create a PDF for all to download here at the forum. Mind you that i will be using the random generation that is provided in the book itself and so some places my come out weaker for me then if you rolled them yourself but once done it will be the complete force of the entire crossroads region that will be at your disposal. Wish me luck !
