April Mega Bundle, Wild West Names and the RPG Round Up

April Mega Bundle Deal @ Open Gaming Store

The April Mega Bundle Deal is ongoing at the Open Gaming Store. For $20, you are getting over 190+ pdfs, which is almost everything that EG has on sale at OGS. Individually, this would cost you close to $300.

Rather than list everything in the bundle (check out the page for all the titles) some of the highlights include:

  • Tavern Kit 2
  • Backgrounds and Details Kit 2
  • 40+ Feat books
  • All the Campaigns Chunks series
  • A huge amount of generators to help prompt your imagination and for inspiration

Something to bear in mind about this offer is that once it’s done, it will probably not be run again for a long time, if it is ever run again, so now is the perfect oppertunity to get the bundle. All ready got it? Tell others about it!

Wild West Names & Nicknames

The Wild West era focuses on the Western United States in the second half of the 19th century. It was a time of gold rushes, cattle rustling and of course, the so-called Cowboys.

There were also robbers stealing that hard-worked for gold and silver, women that wanted a shot at fame and much more.

All these people had names and this publication is for naming them, giving you first names, surnames, and even nicknames. Combined you have several million possible combinations to work with.

Quick Generator – Space & Sci-Fi Encounter Concepts and RPG Round Up

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

Spell Options 2 – Magic Missile & RPG Round Up

Spell Options 2 – Magic Missile

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 color, make the spell weaker and thus easier to cast or make them more powerful but unstable.

Each volume of the Spell Options series gives you ways of tweaking spells to make them more varied.
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 spells, but at a cost in spell levels. Assuming you know the spell in the first place you can then customize it in one of three ways: Cosmetic, Beneficial, and Penalties.

Cosmetic Changes change the way a spell looks. These options do not cost SL.
Benefits make increases the spells potency, 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?”

Adventure Outline Maker & RPG Round Up

adventure-outline-makerAdventure Outline Maker

As a GM or a story creator, you can often find yourself stuck for ideas. Especially after your players decide to go off carefully beaten track you designed. Or you forgot your notes and need to come up with at least the outline for an adventure in a few moments.

The Adventure Outline Maker is for just those kinds of moments. Using a series of d100 tables it creates an adventure outline, with contact type, your quest/mission, where it is, and what complication there is, or what help you may get, even a suggested reward. This outline is then used to help you come up with a full adventure or side quest.

Each aspect table has 100 entries, with some duplication to reflect the more common entries.

There are also two examples outlines included, showing how the process works and taking you through it step by step. You will need to flesh out the details yourself, but that is not a hard thing to do and Ennead Games can help with that as well, with our numerous generators for backgrounds, names and more.

Features
2 example outlines, showing how the system can be used to quickly
8 d100 tables that can be combined in a high number of ways to produce an outline in a simple and easy way.
These tables are:
Contact – Personality & Contact – Profession tells you about who gave you the quest/primary point of contact.
Quest – Action & Quest – Target – These two together tell you what is needed and what the target is
Location tells you where you should go
Complication – If something can go wrong, this table tells you what it is.
Help & Opposition – Do you get aid from others or are there active groups out to hinder you
Reward – What have you been promised as a reward for your endeavours.
