Character Connections and RPG Round Up

Character Connections

A character connection is something that allows players and GMs alike to come up with ways of linking characters together for a story or adventure.

A d200 or 2 d100 tables are provided here to help you flesh out the connections between two characters. It can be two members of the same party, or an NPC and a player character, or even two NPCs that you need to figure out just how they know each other.

The genre has been kept as generic as possible so this system can be used in a fantasy setting, a sci-fi, modern or maybe even a horror.

Inside you find…
1 d200/2x d100 tables filled with suggestions and ideas on how your various characters know each other or are linked to character or NPC you are currently focusing on
a simple d20 table for determining how long ago this event occurred

Deities and Pantheons pdf details & RPG Round Up

Deities and Pantheons

“Zeus, first cause, prime mover; for what thing without Zeus is done among mortals?”
― Aeschylus, Agamemnon

In many ways, the deities or gods of your world should be treated as characters in their own right. They have their own desires, goals and abilities. These might be out in the open, such as preparing mortals for the end times, or they could be hidden goals, only revealed to those who prove themselves worthy.

On many worlds, these beings made the planet you are standing on, he stars in the skies. They may control the very air you breathe or can guide your blade to victory. Some gods even work with or against others divine beings.

Take your time with them and use the aspect tables to help fill in the blanks, or, use them as a starting point. Never be afraid to roll again or too pick a result you feel works better. On the flip side, you don’t always have to throw away a seemingly contradictory or nonsense result, as these can sometimes give you the most memorable characters, or in this case, deities.

But, if you need details, or at least, something to help jump-start your imagination and the creative process, then look no further.

Inside you’ll find…

Pantheon aspects which covers…

Nature of the pantheon
Where did they come from
Power Source
Range of their power
Afterlife

Individual Deity aspects such as…

Alignment
Appearance
Friends and enemies
Name style
Portfolio
Power Level
Relationship with mortals
Rules, taboos and atonement
Symbols
Worshipers

Plus 5 appendixes, all d100 tables, to help flesh out the details you may need even more
Appendix 1 – Base Form
Appendix 2 – Domain
Appendix 3 – Rules & Taboos
Appendix 4 – Symbols & Tools
Appendix 5 – Worshipers

Fantastic Feats Volume 53 – Stat Manipulation and RPG Round Up

There seems to be an issue with Drivethru/OneBookshelf at the moment, either with them, or something my end that is preventing me from uploading to there. As such todays release will be delayed on there. But it is available at Tabletop Library right now, so go check it out there as i wait for the issue to resolved.

Fantastic Feats Volume 53 – Stat Manipulation

Feats are a stable part of any character or NPC build. They give you ways to alter your powers and abilities, or to twist them in new and interesting ways.

These feats give you a way to manipulate the bonuses your stats give you. But, as with many things, they come with a penalty, as you can only push the body and mind so far…

Features
Common rules for the use of these feats
7 new base feats that can be customised and tweaked each time you take one. You can expand the effect it has, reduces the penalty it gives you or even increase the number of times it can be used per day
Each base feat has its own version tied to a different stat – For example,if you have “Astounding Strength” you don’t get the benefit of “Astounding Dexterity”. One feat has 30 possible variations to choose from.

The base feats you’ll find inside –
(X) & (Y) are replaced with the names of the stats being manipulated by the feat.
Astounding (X) – Re-roll any dice roll related to this stat
Bonus Swap (X) (Y) – Swap the bonus you get from one stat with another
Incredible (X) – Add a second bonus to the one gained from this stat
Infused (X) – Sacrifice a spell to give a stat a boost
Opposing (X) – Use your stat bonus to reduce or negate another beings bonus
Strain (X) – Strain your body and mind for greater effects, but at a price
Transfer Bonus (x) – Use your bonus to aid another
