Character Connections and RPG Round Up

Character Connections

A character connection is something that allows players and GMs alike to come up with ways of linking characters together for a story or adventure.

A d200 or 2 d100 tables are provided here to help you flesh out the connections between two characters. It can be two members of the same party, or an NPC and a player character, or even two NPCs that you need to figure out just how they know each other.

The genre has been kept as generic as possible so this system can be used in a fantasy setting, a sci-fi, modern or maybe even a horror.

Inside you find…
1 d200/2x d100 tables filled with suggestions and ideas on how your various characters know each other or are linked to character or NPC you are currently focusing on
a simple d20 table for determining how long ago this event occurred

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.

Demonic True Names, Use Names & Titles plus the RPG Round Up

Demonic True Names, Use Names & Titles

Demonic True Names, Use Names & Titles

Demons come in many shapes and forms. One particular aspect mortals have trouble with is their names. Combined with the fact that knowing their true name can often give you power over them, most demons have a second name, commonly called their use name.

Sometimes mortals or other beings also give these demonic beings a title to go along with their name, which can help spread fear or tell you more about who you are dealing with.

This publication features…

  • A system for creating a demonic sounding true name
  • 2 d100 tables for the name that mortals give it
  • d100 table for deciding what title a demon may have
  • A walkthrough for an example demonic name creation
  • 2 pre-done d100 tables to help you save time, one for true name, the other for use names

Helpful List Arbitrary Collection 2 & RPG Round Up

Helpful List Arbitrary Collection 2

Every week on the Ennead Games blog, normally on a Friday, a helpful list of 20 items is published. This list normally follows no set pattern, but many are based off real world subjects.

The subjects range from names from faraway lands, to what you might call your coins, to weapon name and more. They are not large enough to publish on their own, so they have been brought together into a handy collection, a mixture of Fantasy, Sci-Fi, and other genres.

If you have others in the helpful list series, then there may be some overlap with those publications, but not much.

This collection features the following d20 tables…

1 – Collective Nouns for living things
2 – Crazy and Bizarre Diseases
3 – Dangerous & Deadly Animals
4 – Large Bird of Prey
5 – Large Empires
6 – Obscure Sports
7 – Rare Natural Phenomena
8 – Strange town names
9 – Torture Methods
10 – Wonders of the World
