Creature Description Generator Volume 7 – Dwarf and the RPG Round Up

Creature Description Generator Volume 7 – Dwarf

A dwarf is, according to some, a member of a mythical race of short, stocky human-like creatures who are generally skilled in mining and metalworking.

But dwarfs, like all other creatures, come in a variety of types, not all follow the “deep voiced, grumpy miner” stereotype. The Creature Description Generator is designed to help you make your dwarfs description more varied, interesting and memorable.

Inside this edition of CDG you’ll find 10 Aspects to help flesh out your description of a dwarf:

  • Clan and Name – a brief overview of the dwarfs clan
  • Clothing/armour – What sort of clothing do they have on
  • Face & Features – Anything note-worthy about their face?
  • Hair/Beard – The thing for which many dwarfs are famous for
  • Personality – Are they considered too boring, clever, or something else?
  • Profession/Class – How does this dwarf make a living
  • Tattoos & Piercings – Does this dwarf have any type of body modifications?
  • Voice – How do they sound?
  • Weapon of Choice – What weapon does this dwarf prefer to use in combat?
  • Quirk/Feature – 100 quirks or features to help make the character more unique and memorable

Name Maker Volume 2 – Dwarfs and RPG Round Up

Name Maker Volume 2 – Dwarfs

The Helpful List series, also by Ennead Games, provide lists of 100 pre-generated names to help save time when creating characters. But sometimes you want more options or just need to come up with lots of various names based around a theme at once.

The Name Maker helps to fill that void. Each volume contains a themed series of first names (these can double up as middle names) for female and male characters, although there is nothing stopping you from mixing the names, plus surnames, also called family or clan names.

This volume covers names for Dwarfs, translated into the common language from the original dwarfish tongue.

Inside this volume:
2 x d100 tables with names suitable for a female dwarfs first name
2 x d100 tables with names suitable for a male dwarfs first name
2 x d100 tables with words that can be used as the first part of a dwarfs surname
2 x d100 tables with words that can be used as the second part of a dwarfs surname

The base format allows for 200 x 200 x 200 x 200 or 1,600,000,000 possible combinations, which only increases if you add in middle name(s).

Example Possible Names:-
Female
Deldeth Merrybeam
Kalla Blackbrand
Nola Stonecleaver
Tarbryn Forgeflayer

Male
Babund Amberhelm
Gargur Bouldermasher
Nalur Frostseeker
Thorsun Dimtankard

Spell Options 6 – Alarm and the RPG Round Up

Spell Options 6 – Alarm

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 Alarm, a low-level spell that can alert the caster to intruders.

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 spell, 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?”

Modify the spell in various ways, such as…

The type of sound the alarm makes
Make the alarm configurable once cast
Make it able to detect fine sized creatures as well
Give it an unstable trigger to help offset any benefit costs

and more!
