Helpful List- Arbitrary Collection 6 and the RPG Round Up

Helpful List- Arbitrary Collection 6

Every week on the Ennead Games blog, normally on a Friday, a helpful list of 20 items is posted. These normally follow no set pattern or theme, unless there has been a request for a particular list, but a few are based off real-world subjects. Some tables are expanded further into full lists or generators, and others work just fine on their own.

The subjects range from names from faraway lands, to what you might call your coins, to weapon names and more. There may be a common theme for the volume, then again, there might not be. They have been brought together into a handy and eclectic collection, a mixture of Fantasy, Sci-Fi and other genres.

Inside this volume, you’ll find 20 d20 tables, covering…

Anime/Manga Names
Baltic Deity Names
Birds
Clerical Domains
Container
Dark Elf Names
Dinosaurs
Diseases
Fish
Gemstone
Herbs and Spices
Insect
Instrument
Jewellery
Magical Drink Names
Mounts
Potion Detail
Reptile
Spell Components
Tools

Spell Options 8 – Prismatic Spray and the RPG Round Up

Spell Options 8 – Prismatic Spray

For many a seasoned adventurer and explorer, magic can become, whilst still a useful tool, boring. You know what a certain spell is effective for, or how potent you need to be to use the spell found on a scroll.

The Spell Options series is a way of tweaking existing spells without using feats. You can change the colour, make the spell weaker and thus easier to cast or make them more powerful but unstable.

This volume focuses on Blade Barrier, a mid- range spell that can harm any who try to pass through it.

Inside you’ll find:-

Basic and simple core rules or tweaking spells
Optional rules for when you want to use this system, but feel it is a bit overpowered

The Spell Options system tweaks your spells, but at a cost in spell levels. Assuming you know the spell in the first place you can then customise it in one of three ways: Cosmetic, Beneficial, and Penalties.

Cosmetic Changes change the way a spell looks. These options do not cost SL(spell levels).
Benefits increase the potency of the spell in some way but make it harder to cast.
Penalties reduce the potency of the spell in some way but make it easier or less draining to cast.

These can be combined in various ways to turn an “ordinary” spell into something that makes your opponent go “Wait..just what spell is it they are casting?”

Example options include…

Cosmetic – The PS is cast from another location
Benefit – New Colours for the Spray – 5 new colours and effects that can be used alongside or replace the orginal
Penalty – Missing Colour – One of the colours in the spray randomly turns off
and more!
