A Chunk of Sci-Fi – Volume 1

When the Ennead Games blog started, one of the regular features was a weekly post for various genres for games and stores. The base format got tweaked over the years, with regular updates and re-launches to keep it fresh.

Presented here are 10 compiled entries from the blog, tidied up, formatted and if needed, expanded. They are all suitable for a Sci-Fi setting, with a few usable in a near-modern setting as well.

For flavor, some of these items are set in the authors own game world, but this can easily be ignored or replaced with something of your own.
Inside this volume, you will find…

  • Esper Guard [Class/Profession] – An essential type of protection in a universe of telepaths
  • Explosive Dandelion [Plant] – A seemingly harmless flower with explosive properties
  • Hive Chicken [Animal] – The more of them that get together, the smarter they all become
  • Hyperspace Bomb [Weapon] – A bomb designed to disrupt some forms of FTL
  • Infinite Blue [Drug] – A highly addictive drug that makes you feel at once with the universe
  • Landfall Day [Holiday] – Celebrate the day your colony ship arrived
  • Myrotrophia II [Planet] – A planet that seems empty to all sensors
  • Steel Grass [Plant] – A type of grass that feels like a sharp razor
  • Ultech Personal Liferaft [Vehicle] – Your main ship about to explode? Escape in style with the UPL!
  • Zombex [Disease] – Telepaths beware of this deadly mental disease

Mega PDF deal, Adventure Outlines Volume 1 & 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, valed at close to $300, which is almost everything that EG has on sale at OGS.

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 opportunity to get the bundle. Already got it? Tell others about it!

Adventure Outlines – Volume 1

Ennead Games runs a patron to help fund various projects, such as keeping the website going on contributing towards general upkeep.

One of the rewards for subscribers is a weekly series of adventure outlines, created using the “Adventure Outline Maker” system and expanded on. This PDF is a compilation of 10 weeks’ worth of outlines. They have been expanded where needed, minor details changed, but essentially are the same as what the Patrons’ get, just they get it earlier.

As the name suggests, these outlines are not full adventures. They are designed for when you need a quick adventure to fill in the gaps, or your players go wandering off the beaten track. Each outline is no larger than a page, designed in such a way to be easy to slip into any genre appropriate game or story. Each has some intro/flavour text, a snippet showing the originally generated result and the expanded one, fleshing out the mini-outline into something a bit more usable.

The outlines in this volume are…

  • A day at the races – A dog race needs investigating
  • Barbarians Game – A popular hero plays a game with those who want to put up a statue of her
  • Flight of the Warlord – A warlord with a flying castle needs taking down and his brother wants to help
  • Love of a witch – After helping a local, a woodsman and is determined to unite a witch with her love
  • One of our dwarfs is missing! – A rather stupid dwarf has gone missing near an abandoned city
  • Seekers Return – a haven for fortune tellers, seers and psychics has lost one of their members
  • The Cave of the Immortal – A lost sorceress needs help in a cave system, but makes an interesting discovery
  • The Generals Revenge – When a generals twin is killed by bandits, she seeks your help in catching his killers
  • The Lost Deed of Bethesberg – If the deed for Bethesberg is not recovered by founders day, the town itself can be sold
  • The Vulnerable Priest & the Warrior – A priest is confusingly told by his deity to NOT stop a ritual of power from taking place

Open Gaming Store Mega Bundle

Until the end of April, Open Gaming Store and Ennead Games is running an incredible bundle deal. For $20 you get almost the entire catalogue of Ennead Games products, which is over 190 pdfs normally valued at close to $300 if purchased separately.

Click here for the link to the bundle and remember you have until the end of April to get this and it will probably not be repeated again.

Superlative Spells 4 – Auras

adjective
of the highest kind, quality, or order; surpassing all else or others; supreme; extreme:
superlative wisdom.

Spells and the supernatural are a staple part of many games and settings. They allow the user to bend reality to their will or to bring down their wrath on their enemies.

This volume in the Superlative Spells series covers Auras, or spells that grant a bonus or penalty to anyone within a certain area, focus on an object, person or location.

One definition of an aura is “An aura is the distinctive atmosphere or quality that seems to surround and be generated by a person, thing, or place.”

How often have you been in a place or near to a person and felt something was not right or in a building and felt like it was pleasant? These spells take that feeling and use it in a passive way to provide a bonus or penalty to those within it.

Inside this volume of Superlative Spells you’ll get…
Core rules for auras
20+ sample effect for an aura
10+ related feats
11 spells related to using and manipulating auras
5 variations/types that use the spell level system created in the Spell Options series

Spell Options 4 – Bestow Curse & RPG Round Up

Spell Options 4 – Bestow Curse

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?”

Plus in this volume, you’ll get a d20 table with simple options for the effects of the curse

Helpful List Arbitrary Collection 3

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 many are based off real world subjects. Some tables are expanded further into full lists or generators, and others work well just on their own.

The subjects range from names from faraway lands, to what you might call your coins, to weapon name and more. They have been brought together into a handy and eclectic collection, a mixture of Fantasy, Sci-Fi and other genres.

Inside this volume, you will find lists for…
Crops
Crimes
Fake Compound Names
Famous Hoaxes
Legendary Mythical Weapons
Punishments
Saint Names
Sci-Fi Material Names
Uncommon Ancient Egypt Deities
Warrior Groups
