Preview – Lifeform Maker example possible output

The first week of November will be the launch of “Lifeform Maker” – An updated version of the Lifeform maker from the old Multiverse Kit.  Very soon i’ll be getting round to at least starting on a project I have been putting off for a while – Not sure when it will be out, but it will be worth it – It’s going to be the Sci-Fi version of the Backgrounds and Details kit 2.  I’ll be using the output from some of these in my upcoming Star Trek Adventures game(s), so makes sense to be talking about them here.

In the meantime, here is a preview of the possible output from “Lifeform Maker” – This is a straight excerpt taken from the PDF and shows two possible outcomes – one made using the Quick system and another using the Detailed System.

Star and Planet Name Maker & the RPG Round Up

Star and Planet Name Maker

It has been said by some that the universe contains a billion galaxies. Each galaxy is meant to house a billion stars. That is close to a billion, billion stars, many of them with planets of some kind.

Most celestial catalogs use a hard to remember designation system like PX9-32 etc. A name is easier to remember and this will help you to create some names for your planets and stars.

Contents:

  • 2 x d1000 tables a prefix and suffix, divided up into 20 handy d100 sub-tables for the Star/Planet name
  • 1 x d100 designators to tell you what position in the system the planet belongs, such as Alpha, IV, Six and a few more
  • 1 x d100 table of pre-made examples, ready for you to use, such as…
    • Astrozevo Prime
    • Fephedro VIII
    • Solarformica IX

100,000,000 possible combinations can be generated, some more suitable to your needs than others – The ones that seem weird and odd to us would be perfect for the translation from an alien language or miscommunications.

Star System and Planet Maker and the RPG Round Up

Star System and Planet Maker

“Space is big. You just won’t believe how vastly, hugely, mind-bogglingly big it is. I mean, you may think it’s a long way down the road to the chemist’s, but that’s just peanuts to space…”Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy
You are out there, being busy and exploring the big an empty void known as space and you encounter a star. What type of star is it? How many planets, if there are any, are in orbit? What about the planets themselves? All these questions and more can be answered with this publication.

Inside you’ll find a set of tables for mapping out your star-system, covering details such as…

  • The nature of the star(s) in the system
  • Size
  • Atmosphere Type
  • Atmospheric Pressure
  • Axil Tilt
  • Day/Rotation
  • Density/Gravity
  • Hydrosphere
  • Magnetic Field
  • Population/Lifeforms
  • Primary Terrain
  • Orbiting Bodies
  • Position/System Order
  • System Size
  • Temperature
  • Type of planet, rocky or gas
  • Year/Orbit Duration

…PLUS…

A handy glossary of terms used in this publication (plus a few extra)

Disclaimer
Due to how complex the nature of star systems and planets can be in real life, this publication is not claiming in any way to be scientifically 100% accurate…at all. This is a deliberate design choice, to make it easier to use and not bogged down with too much detail. At the end of the day, this publication is for fun and idea prompting and assistance. If you need 100% accuracy, there are plenty of free books, websites and resources out there worthy of your time and attention.
Also, this PDF is an updated and combined version of parts of the Multi-Verse Kit Part 3 and 4, from Ennead Games. Some parts have been removed, such as the sentient life/cultures chapter and others changed, but the majority of the content has been used. If you have those titles, you have most of this already.

Spell Options 7 – Blade Barrier and RPG Round Up

Spell Options 7 – Blade Barrier

For many a seasoned adventurer and explorer, magic can become, whilst still a useful tool, boring. You know what a certain spell is effective for, or how potent you need to be to use the spell found on a scroll.

The Spell Options series is a way of tweaking existing spells without using feats. You can change the colour, make the spell weaker and thus easier to cast or make them more powerful but unstable.

This volume focuses on Blade Barrier, a mid- range spell that can harm any who try to pass through it.

Inside you’ll find:-

Basic and simple core rules or tweaking spells
Optional rules for when you want to use this system, but feel it is a bit overpowered
The Spell Options system tweaks your spells, but at a cost in spell levels. Assuming you know the spell in the first place you can then customise it in one of three ways: Cosmetic, Beneficial, and Penalties.

Cosmetic Changes change the way a spell looks. These options do not cost SL(spell levels).
Benefits increase the potency of the spell in some way but make it harder to cast.
Penalties reduce the potency of the spell in some way but make it easier or less draining to cast.

These can be combined in various ways to turn an “ordinary” spell into something that makes your opponent go “Wait..just what spell is it they are casting?”

Example options include…
Cosmetic – Blade type : Changes what blade type the barrier is made from
Benefit – Bleed : Those who pass through suffer minor bleeding damage
Penalty – Tiny Gaps : Tiny creatures can pass through unharmed
