Product Preview – Assorted Slang and Terminology Volume 1

One of the newer pdf I am working on at the moment is a slight departure from the generator and a kind-of return to the Helpful List series. The working title is”Assorted Slang and Terms”. In essence, it’s a list of terms you can use in your games and stores to help flesh out your descriptions and make them feel more real and authentic.

Although each will have their own modified version of the format – the baseline for slang will be a list of English terms – followed by the “translated” version. One option I am looking into doing will be the reverse of that, the slang term followed by the English translation.

Some of the volumes will have a simple entry, such as the terminology followed by an explanation as to what it means – This will be more like a Glossary.

Sneak Preview – Spell Options 8 – Universal Options

Today, going to give a sneak preview of an upcoming pdf called “Spell Options 8 – Universal Options”

The Spell Options series is a set of pdfs that take existing spells and gives you ways of tweaking them, giving them a unique spin, such as larger effect, change of colouration, and more.

This can be offset by taking penalties, which reduce the SL back to its original level, or even below, but not bellow level 1 or above level 9. There are other rules and guidelines that go along with this system, but that’s the basics of it.

For the most part, each volume is tailored to one spell, such as a curse, or the famous Fireball...

Preview – Lifeform Maker example possible output

The first week of November will be the launch of “Lifeform Maker” – An updated version of the Lifeform maker from the old Multiverse Kit.  Very soon i’ll be getting round to at least starting on a project I have been putting off for a while – Not sure when it will be out, but it will be worth it – It’s going to be the Sci-Fi version of the Backgrounds and Details kit 2.  I’ll be using the output from some of these in my upcoming Star Trek Adventures game(s), so makes sense to be talking about them here.

In the meantime, here is a preview of the possible output from “Lifeform Maker” – This is a straight excerpt taken from the PDF and shows two possible outcomes – one made using the Quick system and another using the Detailed System.

Quick Output

After a roll on the first table in the Ba...
