Resources

Extra help is always welcome when planning and making your games and stories and generator can only go so far. You may need images, sounds or even articles to help inspire and help you along the way. The goal of this page is not to be the end-all of everything you need, but to provide a handy compilation of useful materials and sites that I have collected and found.

This page will be updated only once a week, on a Tuesday.

Have a resource or site you think would fit here? Get in touch with Ennead games via the contact page.

If any of the links are dead or not working, please say so.

Audio/Sound

  • Tabletop Audio – “for ANYONE who wants to immerse themselves in the audio-space of one environment, while physically inhabiting another.”

Character Builders

These can be quite specialised and normally only suitable for one game/system, but they are worth a look as they can speed up character creation quite a bit. Typically free to use. If you like them please consider donating to them or their patron so they can keep the site running and updated regulary.

  • OrcPub – 5e – A very fast and easy to use character builder for the fifth edition of the world’s most popular RPG.

Encyclopedias

To quote Wikipedia, An encyclopaedia is a type of reference work or compendium holding a comprehensive summary of information from either all branches of knowledge or a particular branch of knowledge.

Fonts

Useful for when you want to make handouts look a bit different and not use your own handwriting. Check the licence for each font before using in your projects, especially if they are commercial.

Map Making

If you don’t have the talent to draw on paper or just want something looking a bit better than scribblings, theses sites/programs can help you make something look decently quickly and easily.

These programs are useful tools available for download. Make sure you get the correct versions for your machine and operating system (if there are multiple versions). Most will be free so if you find them useful, please seriously consider donating to the maker to help support development.

  • Calibre – A system for catalogue, sorting and searching your files and pdfs. Handy if you have a large collection.
