Product Hilight – Quick Gen : Spell Names

Quick Generator : Spell Name

Sometimes you don’t need an insane amount of tables and charts. You may just need something quick and simple to help flesh out basic details without going overboard on the details. This is where the Quick Generator is helpful, providing you with a simple one-sentence description of a particular subject.

This particular Quick Generator covers spell names and is useful for when you need the name or simple description for a spell.

Two d100 charts, one for descriptor and the other for effect, provide you with thousands of possible combinations (more if you use the optional combination), you’re sure to find something that will spark your imagination and creativity.

How can you use this quick gen in my games and stories?

The simplest use is, as the name suggests for a quick spell name. This can be handy when trying to fill up a spell book or records of magic. For example, lets say you have a spell book or scroll for a mage that has in it 3 spells. Rolling the d100 6 times , twice per spell, gives you the following results:

  • Mental Teleport
  • Distorting Impact
  • Blossoming Dance

Just what these spells do is up to you, but look at the name if you need ideas. Mental Teleport sounds like something that allows your mind to travel great distances, Distorting Impact has the feel of a spell that if it was applied to a weapon would distort what it would hit, with Blossoming Dance being a spell that certain nefarious bards would use to make their targets dance wildly then possibly explode!

You may disagree with the descriptions I’ve put here and that is fine. You could even have two or more versions of the same spell with different effects, each created by a different mage. Then you could have “Scrunthry’s Distorting Impact” and “Txix’ic Distorting Impact”, one of which harms the targets armor, the other the person inside.

As you can see the possibilities are almost endless.
