This Was a Real Thing

Buried deeply in the voluminous appendix of the 1st Edition AD&D Dungeon Master’s Guide was indeed a “Random Harlot Table”. It included such gems as a “sly pimp”, “expensive doxy”, and “saucy tart”. For all those times you really need a prostitute in your games but just can’t think of a description on the fly.

Oh Gygax.


On a semi-related topic, I just designed a Harlot Background for the fifth edition of the world’s oldest roleplaying game. Tongue planted firmly in-cheek.
