Generator Revisited – Technobabble

Generator Revisited – Technobabble

No new generator or resource this week, so thought I would re-visit an older generator once again – Technobabble.

With my upcoming STA campaign soon to officially start, it seems appropriate to revisit this. This particular generator was one of my favorites to do.  So much so I took the original version, which had three d100 tables and added a further 2 d100 expanded options.

To give you an idea of how many possible outcomes this can generate I’ll break it down:

Standard Version

  • 3 x d100 tables
  • 100 x 100 x 100 possible combinations
  • 1,000,000 (One Million Possible Combinations)

Expanded Version

This version builds on the Standard Edition and expands it by not only giving you technobabble problems but a possible solution as well.

Starting off with the ...

CDG 2:Vampires & RPG Round Up for 28th/12/2015

There is a problem - it appears you are using categories and no feeds have been put into those categories.

CDG 2 Vampire cover thumbCreature Description Generator Volume 2 – Vampires

A vampire is a being from folklore who subsists by feeding on the life essence, typically blood, of living creatures. But what do they look like as a member of the undead, what was their life like, how do they feed?

All these aspects and more are covered in this volume of the CDG. The CDG (Creature Description Generator) range is designed with a fantasy setting in mind, but can easily be used for sci-fi or modern/horror settings.

Aspects covered by this Creature Description Generator:-
Apparent previous life: What was the vampire in their previous life before they were turned into the undead?
Bane/Weakness: What causes the vampire harm or can weaken them so they can finally be killed? Not all vampires are repulsed by holy symbols.
Clothing: What is the state of their clothing? Is it in pristine condition? Related to their previous life?
Companions: Is the vampire on their own, or do they have followers and others looking after them?
Features: This aspect covers their eye colouration, skin and anything normally visible.
Feeding: How does the vampire feed once they have caught their prey? What do they feed on?
Home base: Where and what does the vampire call home?
Hunting: Before they feed a vampire need to catch its prey. How does it do that? Where does it hunt? Does it only hunt at a certain time of the year?
Killing Blow: How do you kill off one of these beasts for good?
Main goal: What is the main goal of the vampire now that it is undead?
Movement: How does the vampire primarily move? Does it glide with an unearthly grace, or appear in the shadows?
Powers & Skills: What skills and powers has becoming the undead granted the vampire?
Prey: What does the vampire hunt and what do they refuse to hunt?
Turned: How long ago was the vampire turned into the undead? What was their sire like?
Quirks and Rare Features: What odd personality quirk or rare feature does the vampire possess?

R.I.G.S. News and more info on BDK2

With the holidays season well and truly here RIGS is taking a mini break and will be back in the new year. Something I am thinking about adding to RIGS is character backgrounds. These will be stat-less, apart from vague terms like Very strong, or Not very smart. This info will come, in part from a new generator I have made for characters.

Which leads me neatly into the other bit of news. Backgrounds & Details Kit Version 2.0 has now finished its first draft and is currently at 45+ pages of content. What is in BDK2 you ask? If you have previous Ennead Games products you might recognise some of the entries. The previous BDK has been taken and expanded on in many new ways.  This particular version is about those characters in a fantasy or medieval like setting. A sci-Fi version will be coming when possible, hopefully soon.

In the mean time, take a look at the current contents page, but be aware it is still a work in progress so may change. Some of the sections have further sub-sections that are not listed here. There are many d100 tables , plus an appendix of 500 phobia names as well.

Witches Brews & Potions + RPG Round Up

There is a problem - it appears you are using categories and no feeds have been put into those categories.

Witches Brews & Potions

WBAP Cover thumb

Not including the stereotypical hat, cauldron broomstick and familiar, a witch can often be found to be a good source of potions and brews, with the two terms often being used interchangeably by both the witch and the drinker. These brews often have odd and nasty sounding ingredients.

This generator, or series of tables, is designed to help flesh out any needed details you require. Use all of them or just one, they are entirely optional.

Featuring tables for:
Brewing method – Does the brew need to be stirred all the time or during a full moon?
Effect of the potion/brew, from bravery to curing a rash
A d100 table with 100 possible ingredients, many with linked sub-tables to further expand the details and options; Instead of “Blood of Dog”, you could have blood of cat, elephant or something else
Duration of the brew
Possible side effects from consuming this potion
