Whats in your rpg book collection?

Didn’t really have a topic for today, so thought I’d share some of what I currently have in my growing collection of RPG related books. Rather than list every single one (unless people want me to do that) I’ll break it down into system/games etc. These range from 1st edition D&D items almost as old as I am, to brand new only got published a few weeks ago.

  • Babylon 5 – 5
  • Call of Cthulu – 3
  • Cypher – 16
  • D&D – 50
  • D20 – 1
  • GURPS – 4
  • Middle Earth – 3 (but two more can be found under D&D)
  • Misc/Other – 12
  • Palladium – 18
  • Pathfinder – 24
  • Star Gate – 5
  • Star Trek – 2
  • Traveller – 4
  • Warcraft – 7
  • Warhammer – 16 (This includes Dark Heresy, WFRPG etc)
  • World of Darkness – 29

If my maths is right that is close to 200 books...

CDG 4 - Lich cover thumbCreature Description Generator Volume 4 – Lich

A lich is an undead creature, typically a spell caster of some type that has who has used its magical powers to unnaturally extend its life. But not all lichs are the same.

How old are they? What species are they? Why did they become a lich in the first place?

All these aspects and more are covered in this volume of the CDG. The CDG (Creature Description Generator) range is designed with a fantasy setting in mind, but can easily be used for sci-fi or modern/horror settings.

The aspects covered:

Age – What is the apparent age of the Lich? At what age where they transformed into a member of the undead?

Condition – Lichs can range from being almost living, to virtual skeletons and this aspect gives you a few suggestions as to what that condition may be.

Death – When they became a lich, they had to die or have something similar to death applied to them. How did this occur?

Lair – Where does the lich call home? Is it a grand castle or do they dwell in a cave behind a waterfall?

Personality – What sort of personality does the lich have? Are they, for a lich, kind or cruel and uncaring?

Phylactery – The phylactery is one of the hallmarks of a lich as it can house their soul or power source. What is the nature of this vessel?

Reason – Why did they become a lich in the first place? Was it through choice or was this state of undeath forced upon them from an angry god?

Servants & Minions – Does the lich any servants to add it or minion to boss around and do its bidding?

Species – The majority of lichs seem to be human males for some reason, but other species have found the path to lichdom as well, sometimes through choice. What species does the lich belong to?

Quirks & Features – Not all lichs are the same. Many have unique quirks and features that help stand out and be more memorable. Roll once on this table to find out what that can be. It might be something about the lichs phylactery, the fact they are female pretending to be male or something else entirely.

Fantastic Feats Volume 48 – Skald
Fantastic:
Adjective – Strange, different; imaginary

The term skald (or skáld) meaning ‘poet’, is generally used for poets who composed at the courts of Scandinavian and Icelandic leaders during the Viking Age and Middle Ages.
Skalds are poets, historians, and keepers of lore who use their gifts for oration and song to inspire allies into a frenzied rage.

This edition of “Fantastic Feats” gives you ten feats for the Skald in your party.

The Skald can sometimes use their spell energy to provide a bonus to certain acts and this is reflected in the feats they can use.

Anthem of Attacking – Increase minimum melee damage
Ballard of Protection – A Bonus to saving throws
Chant of Performance – Perform Skill is now more
Fearsome Reputation – Intimidation/bluff checks can be re-rolled
Melody of Moods – Social dice rolls can be improved
Musical Weapon – Use your instrument as an improvised weapon
Poem of Power – You or your allies are now better
Saga of Defending – Makes it harder for your foes to get through your armour
Song of Inspiration – Gain a bonus to your next hit roll
Tale of Rage – Sacrifice spell power for more rage potency
