Equipment Maker SciFi Edition Volume 1 – Firearms

Equipment Maker SciFi Edition Volume 1 – Firearms

The future is quite often not as safe as people think. You need to defend yourself and others from those who seek to do you harm, through design or accident.

You need a firearm. Strictly speaking, a firearm inflicts damage on targets by launching one or more projectiles driven by rapidly expanding high-pressure gas produced by exothermic combustion of propellant within an ammunition cartridge. The name has stuck through common use that it can apply, according to most people anyway, any personal ranged weapon.

The EM series is designed to give you a brief description of the item, but the actual detail are left up to you.

This volume features…
a d100 table for descriptors
a d100 table for damage type
a d100 (with repeating options) for weapon type

smaller tables and rules that cover, in a simple way…
accuracy
clip/ammo size
Mark/damage rating
weapon sight
Modifications

Lastly, a d100 of pre-made examples ready for use, giving you examples such as:

“Northwatch” Negating Machine-Pistol
Chain Spatial Shotgun
Continuous Tri-cobalt Insanity Railgun
Elite Dark Matter Disintegrating Rifle
Phasing Slicing Rifle

Using Lifeform Maker in a fantasy genre or setting

The Lifeform Maker (which you can get HERE) was designed with sci-fi settings in mind. The thought did occur to me though that it could easily be used to give some tweaks to an existing creature or monster in the fantasy genre. So today I’m going to show you just how this can be done.

To make this easier, I’ll be using for the base creature something almost everyone is familiar with – An Adult Red Dragon. A base creature is used so you have a baseline to work with. This makes design a LOT easier. Even starting with a simple creature like a chicken can result in something truly alien. It also makes it much easier to describe to people “It looks like a chicken but….”

You know what this creature looks like – Big, Red scales, wings, can breathe fire etc.

In LFM, there are two main ways of cha...

[Resource] – Fast Character Maker

Some people love spending ages creating a character. But often, especially as a GM, you need to come up with a character really quicky – Your players have gone off the beaten track and want to know more about that mysterious person who ultimately has no real impact on your planned plot.

Fast Character Maker can help with this.

to quote from the site – ”

Need a few quick pre-gens for a game convention or organized play group at your local game store?

Your cousin from out of town wants to sit in and join this week’s game?

The party insists on hiring that NPC to join them for the adventure?

That failed stealth check got half the party killed and now you’re all playing back-up reinforcements?

You don’t have time to min/max your way through a character build but want to try something new?

Name Maker Volume 2 – Dwarfs and RPG Round Up

Name Maker Volume 2 – Dwarfs

The Helpful List series, also by Ennead Games, provide lists of 100 pre-generated names to help save time when creating characters. But sometimes you want more options or just need to come up with lots of various names based around a theme at once.

The Name Maker helps to fill that void. Each volume contains a themed series of first names (these can double up as middle names) for female and male characters, although there is nothing stopping you from mixing the names, plus surnames, also called family or clan names.

This volume covers names for Dwarfs, translated into the common language from the original dwarfish tongue.

Inside this volume:
2 x d100 tables with names suitable for a female dwarfs first name
2 x d100 tables with names suitable for a male dwarfs first name
2 x d100 tables with words that can be used as the first part of a dwarfs surname
2 x d100 tables with words that can be used as the second part of a dwarfs surname

The base format allows for 200 x 200 x 200 x 200 or 1,600,000,000 possible combinations, which only increases if you add in middle name(s).

Example Possible Names:-
Female
Deldeth Merrybeam
Kalla Blackbrand
Nola Stonecleaver
Tarbryn Forgeflayer

Male
Babund Amberhelm
Gargur Bouldermasher
Nalur Frostseeker
Thorsun Dimtankard
