Encounters & Events – Sci-Fi Volume 3 – Planet Types

Throughout your adventures, quests and missions, you will run into various individuals and experience odd sometimes random-seeming events and encounters. They might puzzle you, endanger your group or simply be a mystery you can never solve.

This volume of Encounters & Events is themed around what type of planets you may encounter whilst exploring the void, from prison worlds to planets dedicated to farming to planets with an odd quirk to them and more.

Almost all of the entries have a further sub-table associated with it, giving you a few extra options or quick plot hooks to start off your own missions and adventures.

Equipment Maker 5 – Rings and the RPG Round Up

Equipment Maker Volume 5 – Rings

Everyone who goes on an adventure uses equipment. Without it, their adventuring days would come to a halt quite quickly.

This generator doesn’t give you the details of any powers or abilities that are named or generated, that part is left up to you. It could simply be a description or the names could have real abilities tied to them.

This edition of Equipment Maker covers rings , a round band, usually of metal, worn as an ornamental piece of jewellery around the finger, or sometimes the toe.

Inside you’ll find…
d100 table for descriptor
d100 table for material (with some repeating options)
d100 table for type and style of ring
d100 table for descriptor prefix
d100 table for descriptor suffix
Some minor table for gemstones and inscriptions
d100 table for gemstones
d100 table for ring size that covers diameter, circumference and uses real-world ring-sizes to give you an idea of how big or small it is.

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.
