[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...

[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?
