A Chunk of Fantasy Volume 1 and the RPG Round Up

 

A Chunk of Fantasy Volume 1

When the Ennead Games blog first started, one of the regular features was a weekly post for fantasy or medieval style games and stores. The base format was tweaked over the years, with regular updates and re-launches to keep it fresh.

Presented here are 10 compiled entries from the blog, tidied up, formatted and where needed, expanded.

For flavour, a few of these items are set in Easthalen, the authors own game world, but this can easily be ignored or replaced with something of your own.

Inside this volume you’ll find…

Aerons [Race/Species] – A humanoid species with insect ancestry.
Arcane Archiver [Class/professon] – The protectors and guardians of magical items.
Chain Mail Helmet of the Druid [Armour] – A metal based helmet for druids.
Explorers Guild [Organisation] – A club for all those who like to seek fame and fortune.
FNV Fortunes’ Fury [Vehicle] – This privateer vessel has a little something extra to make it go fast.
Pit of Destruction [Dungeon] – What do you do with an almost immortal being?
Potion of Crystal Intellect [Potion] – A dose of this potion can give you a mental boost.
Starfall [Event] – Where a star was believed to have fallen to earth.
Shocking Door [Trap] – A simple trap sometimes used to entertain.
Wild Steel [Material] – If you partake of the chaotic arts, stay away from this metal.

A Chunk of Fantasy 2.10 – High Sun [Holiday]

A Chunk of Fantasy 2.10 – High Sun

“Praise the sun? You actually think that is what we do? We worship what it gives us, what it represents – life, warmth and protection from the horrors of the night. I have heard there are many gods who dwell within it and why would we want to upset all of them? So no, we don’t “Worship” the sun any more than you worship the blacksmith that made the sword on your belt. But we do celebrate it!”

High Sun is the name given to a collection of holidays around the world that all take place on the same day when the sun reaches it’s highest point at noon, marking the longest day of the year for many people and cultures. It goes by many names, such as the Summer Solstice, the Longest Day or Midsummers Day...

A Chunk of Fantasy 2.09 – Eternus [Settlement]

A Chunk of Fantasy 2.09 – Eternus

“What the heck is a town doing in the middle of the desert? Where does it get its water?”
Sir Arthur Figgins, “Famous” Explorer on his 3rd expedition to map the interior of Slalal Desert

Just over 300 years ago, the Slalal Desert didn’t exist. Where it stood was an area of high fertility and grassland. It was out of the way, for the most part, and there were very few settlements in the area. Eternus was once such settlement. Founded on top of a deep spring, the settlement was given the name of Eternus, named after what was believed to be a god of the same name, who’s power was meant to be eternal and everlasting, the hope is that their name and the spring would allow the settlement to last for eternity.

Sadly, this was not to be...

A Chunk of Fantasy 2.08 – Mask of Trelitou [Artefact]

A Chunk of Fantasy 2.08 – Mask of Trelitou

“No…you can’t have it….it belongs to me…it chose me EEE Eee!”
Lady Mirabella, last known user of the mask

A masquerade ball is an event in which the participants attend in costume wearing a mask. Often very lavish events, they are places to show off your latest clothing. The mask is considered part of that. They can range fro simple eye coverings, to full blown face masks, which, whilst impressive does make drinking and eating harder.

The Mask of Trelitou was one such mask. In its default unactivated state, it has a feminine looking porcelain face, with make up painted on and with a frilly outer edge...

A Chunk of Fantasy 2.07 – Roulette Room [Trap]

A Chunk of Fantasy 2.07 – Roulette Room

“Is it me or does that look like a giant spinnable disk. I’m a gonna go spin it…”
– Last known words of party scout and rogue

The so-called Roulette Room is one of the most expensive traps ever devised. It was made by a group who wanted to test them self and had access to practically infinite gold and resources. The trap is simple yet deadly and amusing at the same time, depending on your luck.

The Roulette Room (RR) is a multipart trap. The first is the room itself. Entering the room without the right deactivation key (a small black ball) or pass locks the doors after 30 seconds with an audible click. Escaping from the room at this point is hard, but not impossible...
