It seems nearly everyone has decided to make their own roleplaying game. So why should I be any different. For a while, I have wanted to put together my own ruleset and it seems like now is as good a time as any.
The ruleset currently has a codename of Project 5.4. This is emphasize that the rules will be built on the 5th edition SRD, but also be heavily influenced by D&D 4e. I do not expect the result to be compatible with either once it is done.

Random Airship Encounter Prompts (d6)
While flying through the mountains, the party hears a beautiful chorus echoing through the hills below them. The song is hypnotic and the crew begins to steer the ship towards the rocky cliffs.
A group of cloud giants decide to attack the airship in order to loot its valuable cargo. The giants use their strength to hurl boulders at the airship and bring it down.
As the airship flies through a region known for its turbulent weather, the party suddenly finds itself in the midst of a powerful elemental storm. Lightning bolts, high winds, and hailstones batter the airship, threatening to tear it apart.
A massive roc swoops down from the sky and snatches a crew member from the deck of the airship. The party must fight the roc to save their ally and prevent further attacks.
A group of sky pirates attacks the airship from a ship of their own, hoping to loot its cargo and take any valuable prisoners. The party must fend off the pirates and prevent them from boarding the airship.
The party spots the wreckage of another airship that got caught on a rocky outcropping. A group of stranded travelers are trapped on a narrow ledge. Some wild predators are approaching the stranded party’s location.
