Resource – PlanetMaker

Been a while since I done one of these, but found this nifty site called PlanetMaker. To quote the site : “PlanetMaker allows you to create and tweak your own planet using image textures, lighting, and more importantly, your imagination.”

What this means is that, by going through the various sliders, options and other features, you can produce a detailed map of various planets and tweak them, such as…

  • Earth, but from a particular angle, such as facing the south pole
  • Mars – but with water and grasslands, a “living” Mars

Star System and Planet Name generator now live

A new generator has gone live today and it’s the Star System and Planet Name generator.  This generator uses information originally found in “Star and Planet Name Maker” and can be purchased here at DrivethruRPG and Open Gaming Store. 

This one has enough differences to the original planet name generator that I felt a new version would work alongside it, rather than replacing it.

Clicking on the link in the table below will take you directly to the generator page.

Star and Planet Name Maker & the RPG Round Up

Star and Planet Name Maker

It has been said by some that the universe contains a billion galaxies. Each galaxy is meant to house a billion stars. That is close to a billion, billion stars, many of them with planets of some kind.

Most celestial catalogs use a hard to remember designation system like PX9-32 etc. A name is easier to remember and this will help you to create some names for your planets and stars.

Contents:

  • 2 x d1000 tables a prefix and suffix, divided up into 20 handy d100 sub-tables for the Star/Planet name
  • 1 x d100 designators to tell you what position in the system the planet belongs, such as Alpha, IV, Six and a few more
  • 1 x d100 table of pre-made examples, ready for you to use, such as…
    • Astrozevo Prime
    • Fephedro VIII
    • Solarformica IX

100,000,000 possible combinations can be generated, some more suitable to your needs than others – The ones that seem weird and odd to us would be perfect for the translation from an alien language or miscommunications.

Available right now at DrivethruRPG

Very soon available at –
