Random Politics For D&D
Use the following table to create a quick political profile for any medieval-style kingdom.
Roll randomly only when required to come up with an idea on the spot—for example, when detailing a distant kingdom or a place the PCs merely pass through.
If you expect politics to play a large part in your campaign, pick an item from the table, based on your story requirements and the environment your players prefer.
Better yet, create your own unique variation.
When rolling randomly, you can skew the result toward a stable, well-run kingdom by adding a negative modifier to the roll.
skew toward evil and misrule, add a positive modifier.
