On page 36, right above the section on Character Backgrounds.

Following this sentence on page 35, "If you get stuck and require some objectives
for your characters, you can roll on the following table for inspiration. A couple of times should be more than enough;"

Roslyn,

Thanks for more information, silly me I was referring to the print copy and not the PDF version, the page numbering is slightly different. Regarding your answer: This should represent the Motivations tables (page 126 of the appendix), I forgot to rename the table, I am really sorry for the mix up. I wrote the Adventure Maker when I was suffering from a rare medical condition, that effect memory as well as concentration, though several people proof read it, they all miss this. I really appreciate you spotting these flaws, I would like to thank you, and I am very sorry if your not happy. I will in time fix these flaws, though it will have to be in the new year. Any updates will be free, Yours Steve Young

I'm not unhappy. I'm simply trying to understand. No worries. I'm a nerd who sits down with books and dice just to see what develops. Fret not on my account.

Please explain how to use the Hook tables. Following the example, I cannot see how you came up with the Hook results you cite.

Roslyn,

Thanks for your question, to answer your question :
in the example on page 92, has a error, the fist number rolled is 1,2 (12) which says Adventure Plot Table, this is a error, and should say Adventure Hook Tables. The Table B result : Admiration or Love which is correct for it. but as you spotted the second one 4,2 (42) this also says Adventure Plot table, and it should say Adventure Hook table. The correct result should be : Information about a characters past. So makes the example invalid. Sorry for the mistake, but well spotted. I hope that answers your question. When I am able I will up date the error. Yours very gratefully Steve Young Thanks for spotting the error.
See Page 92 for a list of Adventure Hook Tables. I cannot believe I missed this table out. I

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
