Consequences of returning from death

Although you hope it doesn’t happen, death comes to all, especially in a fantasy/sci-fi genre and can be almost guaranteed in horror. But, for many, this may not be “the last great unknown”. The characters, players and NPCs alike, can sometimes come back via spells or rituals.

But death is a major event in a beings life and being returned, sometimes against your will, from beyond the Veil will have consequences…

  • Flashbacks – Every so often, the one who died gets a flashback to the moment of their death. The more their current situation matches the moment of death, the greater the chance of it occurring

30% off Anniversary Sale and the RPG Round Up


30% off Anniversary Sale

No new releases this week for one very good reason – it’s Ennead Games anniversary and I have been stuck nose-deep in a new project that I totally forgot!

So from now, until the end of the month – Almost everything in the Ennead Games range of pdfs is at least 30% off (a few titles have further discounts due to an existing sale)

The only titles not in the sale are those that came out in the last month or so as I don’t think its fair for those who literally just purchased something new to have the price reduced a month later.

This includes, but is not limited to…

For all the titles/pdfs – go here

Don’t forget, the sale ends at the end of October.

[Tales of a GM] – Rules Widgets

Rules Widgets

Phil Nicholls blogs at Tales of a GM, where he writes about narrative gaming, faster prep and more story. He is currently running a HeroQuest Glorantha campaign in a home-brew setting. Phil has written for Johnn Four’s Roleplaying Tips newsletter and produced a selection of self-published pdfs.

This essay is taken from the archives at Tales of a GM.
