A Chunk of SciFi – 1.08 Zombex [Disease]

“…”
[Message can only be read by a Class-4 telepath or higher due to possible contamination with Zombex]

Name – Zombex
Primary Transmission Method – Telepathic Contact
Primary Effect – Shuts down higher mental functions

Telepathy was once thought to be nothing but a myth or story. The ability to read others minds was always thought to be a hoax. Once humanity entered to the galactic stage of their development and made contact with other races it was shown to be true. Humanity was simply a “late bloomer” with regards to telepathy. It was used among the older races to help cement peace and aid in communication. It was the primary reason humanity was left alone for so long – First contact without a TP’er present was not recommended, to prevent mishaps...

Spell Options 4 – Bestow Curse & RPG Round Up

Spell Options 4 – Bestow Curse

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 color, make the spell weaker and thus easier to cast or make them more powerful but unstable.

Each volume of the Spell Options series gives you ways of tweaking spells to make them more varied.
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 spells, but at a cost in spell levels. Assuming you know the spell in the first place you can then customize it in one of three ways: Cosmetic, Beneficial, and Penalties.

Cosmetic Changes change the way a spell looks. These options do not cost SL.
Benefits make increases the spells potency, 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?”

Plus in this volume, you’ll get a d20 table with simple options for the effects of the curse

RPG Blog Carnival: Building Player Engagement

The travelling RPG Blog Carnival moves ever onwards. The February event was hosted by Johnn Four at Roleplaying Tips.

This is a home fixture for the Blog Carnival, as it is now being co-ordinated by Johnn. The topic for February is Player Inspiration. Johnn describes the topic as follows:

What do you do to get players excited and eager to play each session? How have you gotten players keen to dive into that new campaign you just spent weeks preparing? And what approaches do you take to keep players’ faces out of their cells phones and focused on your game?
