Isolation Description (d100)

d100 Result

1-2

The society is completely isolated.  It is nearly impossible to reach, being surrounded by hazardous and impassable terrain features, natural barriers, or vast distances

3-4

The society is extremely isolated. It is very difficult to reach, with progress hampered by natural and man made barriers. A single access route may exist, but it will generally be dangerous to travel.

5-6

The society is highly isolated and difficult to reach.  A few access routes may exist, but they are not easy to negotiate.

7-8

The society is isolated and is fairly difficult to reach.  Several access routes exist, but most are poorly maintained.  One or two might facilitate regular traffic, and are therefore kept in passable condition.

9-12

The society is neither isolated or accessible.  It may be somewhat difficult to reach, although many access routes exist.  A handful of these routes are well traveled and passable.

13-14

The society is only slightly isolated.  It is not difficult to reach and a number of easily traveled route exist.

15-16

The society is not isolated.  It is rather easy to reach, having numerous well-maintained access routes

17-18

The society is easy to reach.  Many well-traveled, well-maintained routes lead to and from the society region.  The surrounding landscape affords little or no impeding terrain features.  Other societies may share borders with this society.

19-100

The society is completely accessible and can be reached very easily.  Access routes are numerous and invariably kept in excellent repair.  No natural barriers or hindering terrain features border the society.  Other nations own land / territory that borders this society.
