[PDF] – Name Maker Volume 3 – Gnomes

Name Maker Volume 3 – Gnomes

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 Gnomes, translated into the common language from the original Gnomish language.

Inside this volume:

  • 2 x d100 tables with female gnomish names
  • 2 x d100 tables with male gnomish names
  • 2 x d100 tables with words that can b...

[PDF] – Starship Maker

Starship Maker

Many years ago, Ennead Games brought out a series of PDFs called the “Starship Kit.” It was designed to help Gamemasters, players and storytellers come up with starship designs and details for their sci-fi games and tales.

Now, it has been compiled into one handy volume, updated in places, some tables tweaked, others expanded and so on.

The Starship Maker gives you a series of tables and ideas to help with your creation or to “fill in the blanks” in an existing design or concept you already have – From the shape, to the engines, to the weapons, even the ship’s name and registration.

Inside you find tables and help with…

  • Armour and Shields
  • Crew Roles (not the crew, just the various jobs)
  • Engines and Propulsion
  • Environmental Systems
  • Medical Systems
  • Power Generatio...

[PDF] – Dungeon Maker

Dungeon Maker

For many people, the word “Dungeon” conjures up dark stone corridors filled with creatures out to stop you. After a while they may seem to be the same, all looking alike and feeling, well, boring.

What you need is some variety in your dungeons!

Dungeon maker is a series of tables designed to help you in designing and fleshing out your dungeons or places for the party to explore. Building on some existing publications from Ennead Games and combing and adding to the information they hold.

Existing supplements, such as the “Dungeon Feature” series, also from Ennead Games will expand on certain details even further if required, such as altars. Think of this publication as a base product from which other optional items can be added to.

Inside this publication, you will fin...

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...
