[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?

Fast...

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

adventure-outline-makerAdventure Outline Maker

As a GM or a story creator, you can often find yourself stuck for ideas. Especially after your players decide to go off carefully beaten track you designed. Or you forgot your notes and need to come up with at least the outline for an adventure in a few moments.

The Adventure Outline Maker is for just those kinds of moments. Using a series of d100 tables it creates an adventure outline, with contact type, your quest/mission, where it is, and what complication there is, or what help you may get, even a suggested reward. This outline is then used to help you come up with a full adventure or side quest.

Each aspect table has 100 entries, with some duplication to reflect the more common entries.

There are also two examples outlines included, showing how the process works and taking you through it step by step. You will need to flesh out the details yourself, but that is not a hard thing to do and Ennead Games can help with that as well, with our numerous generators for backgrounds, names and more.

Features
2 example outlines, showing how the system can be used to quickly
8 d100 tables that can be combined in a high number of ways to produce an outline in a simple and easy way.
These tables are:
Contact – Personality & Contact – Profession tells you about who gave you the quest/primary point of contact.
Quest – Action & Quest – Target – These two together tell you what is needed and what the target is
Location tells you where you should go
Complication – If something can go wrong, this table tells you what it is.
Help & Opposition – Do you get aid from others or are there active groups out to hinder you
Reward – What have you been promised as a reward for your endeavours.
