Quick Generator Antagonist Concept – Sci-Fi and Modern

When running a game or coming up with content for a story, you can sometimes be stuck for ideas and need inspiration quickly. The Quick Generator series is designed to help with that. At a maximum of two tables, you can come up with your required concept, suggestion or idea in a very small number of dice rolls.

This particular QG is about coming up with a concept for your antagonist. An antagonist is defined as “a person who actively opposes or is hostile to someone or something; an adversary.”. This doesn’t necessarily mean they are evil or a true “villain” but your players and characters might see them that way. This version covers those you might find in a sci-fi or modern setting.

Quick Generator – Crimes & Punishments and the RPG Round Up

Quick Generator – Crimes & Punishments

A quick generator is two tables that can be combined to produce an interesting result. It might be a story prompt, concept or something that can be summed up in one or two sentences.

This particular Quick Generator covers Crimes and Punishments. It works a little differently compared to the others. You have a crime table and a punishment table. You can use both together or roll on the one you need.

But what would you use this Quick Generator for…?

  • You need to decide what each inmate of a prison has been charged with
  • Someone has done a crime but the punishment has yet to be decided
  • You need to have a crime to accuse someone of, such as a PC
  • Someone has been convicted of a crime and the law allows for fate to decide their punishment
  • You encounter someone who has been punished, but what were they accused of?

This features 2 d100 tables, one for crimes and another for punishment, with a few punishments duplicated to reflect the more common ones and to help fill out the table. These crimes and punishments are themed around a fantasy/medievil genre.

Quick Generator – Space & Sci-Fi Encounter Concepts

A quick generator doesn’t have many tables. It has been designed to come up with something in a quick and easy fashion, as the name would suggest.

This generator is for coming up with a quick concept for a Sci-Fi or space themed encounter, such as a type of planet, anomaly, or space ship.

Using these 2 d100 tables together is quite simple. Roll a d100 and check the result against the first table. Roll a second d100 and do the same for the second table. Combine the two for your quick space or Sci-Fi themed encounter concept. If you can’t use the result or it doesn’t make much sense, which can happen with random tables, then pick or re-roll another entry.

Example possible outputs:

  • Trans-dimensional Dreadnaught
  • Invisible Testing Zone
  • Chronologically Slowed Weapons Platform
  • Moving Military Base
  • Standard Ringed Planet
