Characters will often encounter pieces of paper when searching places and people. Often, these may be important, but important writings shouldn’t be the only ones they find. There will be other jottings that people will have written or received. Here are 100 simple notes and letters, threats, orders and warnings, signs of wrongdoing, proof of conspiracies or the ravings of madmen that can be used to disguise what’s truly important and to make a setting come to life. Some are quite short and others are longer. These notes are tied to the Urth setting, and could be found in or about a particular location. This collection covers Caecras, Dis, Low Country, Old Edene, the Grand Duchy and the Kingdom of God.
Although none are intended to have any meaning beyond being a distraction that appears important, the GameMaster can, of course, decide whether any of these do have any meaning. These could be used as adventure hooks, or as ways of getting players to visit certain locations. Change the names and people, or add new ones where none is given, to appropriate ones from the campaign world where such might be applicable.

Here are some sample results:
- It’s been hidden in the Palace of Antiquities. The orcs aren’t going to stumble across it, nor will anyone else.
- I’ve been hiding from the orcs for so long now. Too long, as I’m starting to run out of food. I daren’t show my face in the city, so I’m sticking to the night and the areas that have been ruined. Ruined means there is less food to find there.
- I’ve found a previously untapped resource in Clamorhome. Tonnes of materials there to make all the bombs we need. We could probably make a really big one; blow the palace sky-high with Drudge inside.
- I’ve had enough of the Confederacy stealing our fish. It’s ours, not theirs, yet they keep fishing in the Lake of Dreams. Something needs to be done to stop this, and if the government won’t act, we will!
- It was horrible. Horrible. The orcs are no better than beasts. Worse than beasts. Beasts don’t do that to others.
