Generator Revisited – Technobabble

Generator Revisited – Technobabble

No new generator or resource this week, so thought I would re-visit an older generator once again – Technobabble.

With my upcoming STA campaign soon to officially start, it seems appropriate to revisit this. This particular generator was one of my favorites to do.  So much so I took the original version, which had three d100 tables and added a further 2 d100 expanded options.

To give you an idea of how many possible outcomes this can generate I’ll break it down:

Standard Version

  • 3 x d100 tables
  • 100 x 100 x 100 possible combinations
  • 1,000,000 (One Million Possible Combinations)

Expanded Version

This version builds on the Standard Edition and expands it by not only giving you technobabble problems but a possible solution as well.

Starting off with the ...

Preview – Lifeform Maker example possible output

The first week of November will be the launch of “Lifeform Maker” – An updated version of the Lifeform maker from the old Multiverse Kit.  Very soon i’ll be getting round to at least starting on a project I have been putting off for a while – Not sure when it will be out, but it will be worth it – It’s going to be the Sci-Fi version of the Backgrounds and Details kit 2.  I’ll be using the output from some of these in my upcoming Star Trek Adventures game(s), so makes sense to be talking about them here.

In the meantime, here is a preview of the possible output from “Lifeform Maker” – This is a straight excerpt taken from the PDF and shows two possible outcomes – one made using the Quick system and another using the Detailed System.

Quick Output

After a roll on the first table in the Ba...

Star and Planet Name Maker & the RPG Round Up

Star and Planet Name Maker

It has been said by some that the universe contains a billion galaxies. Each galaxy is meant to house a billion stars. That is close to a billion, billion stars, many of them with planets of some kind.

Most celestial catalogs use a hard to remember designation system like PX9-32 etc. A name is easier to remember and this will help you to create some names for your planets and stars.


  • 2 x d1000 tables a prefix and suffix, divided up into 20 handy d100 sub-tables for the Star/Planet name
  • 1 x d100 designators to tell you what position in the system the planet belongs, such as Alpha, IV, Six and a few more
  • 1 x d100 table of pre-made examples, ready for you to use, such as…
    • Astrozevo Prime
    • Fephedro VIII
    • Solarformica IX

100,000,000 possible combinations can be generated, some more suitable to your needs than others – The ones that seem weird and odd to us would be perfect for the translation from an alien language or miscommunications.

Star System and Planet Maker and the RPG Round Up

Star System and Planet Maker

“Space is big. You just won’t believe how vastly, hugely, mind-bogglingly big it is. I mean, you may think it’s a long way down the road to the chemist’s, but that’s just peanuts to space…”Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy
You are out there, being busy and exploring the big an empty void known as space and you encounter a star. What type of star is it? How many planets, if there are any, are in orbit? What about the planets themselves? All these questions and more can be answered with this publication.

Inside you’ll find a set of tables for mapping out your star-system, covering details such as…

  • The nature of the star(s) in the system
  • Size
  • Atmosphere Type
  • Atmospheric Pressure
  • Axil Tilt
  • Day/Rotation
  • Density/Gravity
  • Hydrosphere
  • Magnetic Field
  • Population/Lifeforms
  • Primary Terrain
  • Orbiting Bodies
  • Position/System Order
  • System Size
  • Temperature
  • Type of planet, rocky or gas
  • Year/Orbit Duration


A handy glossary of terms used in this publication (plus a few extra)

Due to how complex the nature of star systems and planets can be in real life, this publication is not claiming in any way to be scientifically 100% accurate…at all. This is a deliberate design choice, to make it easier to use and not bogged down with too much detail. At the end of the day, this publication is for fun and idea prompting and assistance. If you need 100% accuracy, there are plenty of free books, websites and resources out there worthy of your time and attention.
Also, this PDF is an updated and combined version of parts of the Multi-Verse Kit Part 3 and 4, from Ennead Games. Some parts have been removed, such as the sentient life/cultures chapter and others changed, but the majority of the content has been used. If you have those titles, you have most of this already.
