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.

These can be quite specialized 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 regularly.
- Fast Character Maker – Has options for both 5e and the Cypher system

These sites help with or make the design process a lot easier.

Useful for when you want to make handouts look a bit different and not use your own handwriting. Check the license for each font before using in your projects, especially if they are commercial.
Many other sites have online generators for you to use for ideas and inspiration. The ones below are free to use.
