Mission Outlines Volume 1 and the RPG Round Up

Mission 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 mission outlines, created using the “Adventure Outline Maker – Sci-Fi Edition” 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.

The mission outlines inside this volume:

  • Darkness and Silence – A field medic needs help finding a mutant for a cure
  • Graska Incident – A drone operator seeks redemption
  • How to win friends and Influence AI – AI’s want friends too!
  • It can’t fall into the wrong hands – An ancient ship has desired powerful technology
  • Last of the First – A city ships houses one of the oldest beings in the universe
  • Lost and Found – An ancient relic resurfaces and needs to be moved
  • Nanos and Arguments – A government official puts themselves to the front of the line for a medical treatment
  • No good deed… – Sometimes you can’t even have a break without someone wanting your help
  • Some things should not be mapped – A military cartographer gets into trouble when they map something they should not have.
  • The one who was chosen – Events on Dragus III lead a religious inquisitor to seek help with the investigation.

A Chunk of SciFi – 3.01 Evophage [Disease]

A Chunk of SciFi – 3.01 Evophage [Disease]

“There are too many of them, they are getting too full of themselves. It’s not just them as well, it seems to infect anyone they are allied with, they almost seem to be evolving and growing faster than before. It has to be stopped. Luckily I have the solution…”
Unknown, transcript 2 weeks before the outbreak/deployment of Evophage

The universe as a whole is full of many species. Some are long-lived and practically immortal, other are, in comparison, short lived and only live what would be 100 Terran years or so. There is even a species that, due to gravitational and temporal shenanigans live for what appears to be less than 24 hours...

A Chunk of SciFi – 1.05 – Hyperspace Bomb [Weapon]

A Chunk of SciFi – 1.05 – Hyperspace Bomb [Weapon]

“Today is the 50th anniversary of the first Hyperspace Bomb, here in the Omatro Sector. The Hyperspace Bomb, like its crude predecessor on Terra, the Atomic Bomb, helped end a war between us and the Gromaks. We pleaded with them for mercy but they kept attacking our colonies, even though we did everything else they asked. They kept laughing at us, thinking calling us backwards, primitive, stupid and more. To this day we still don’t know why they attacked us that first time, and the modern Gromaks refer to this period of their history as The Great Mistake...

A Chunk of SciFi – 1.03 – Myrotrophia II [Planet]

“Captain…I don’t understand these readings we are getting from Myrotrophia II. There is nothing there. No lifeform, the city of Hilar, not there. Nothing! Bringing up viewscreen now, getting some odd interference and…I don’t believe it. The city is there, along with everything else. I can see it as plain as I can see you Captain, but …I think there might be something wrong with the sensors as they still say the planet is empty of higher life and civilisation. The scanners…are fine?? What?? No I didn’t know about the scattering field…ha ha very funny, a big joke on the new guy…”

RIGS SciFi 2.10 – Unbreakable Glass

RIGS SciFi 2.10 – Unbreakable Glass

“So I got the idea for this stuff whilst reading a comic book. There was this metal that was considered indestructible. Yeah, that one! Well Anyway, I spent most of my youth trying to come up with a metal just like it. Found it impossible, even when we discovered new minerals on other planets. But then one day it hit me. We were going about it the wrong way. Treating it like a metal. So for some reason, I started treating it more like a glass. And it worked. But only whilst liquid. Trust me when I say you don’t want to make ANY errors with manufacturing this…”
