Quick Generator – Crimes & Punishments SciFi Edition and the RPG Round Up

Quick Generator – Crimes & Punishments SciFi Edition

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 Scfi genre of game or story.

Your crime and punishment could end up being…

  • Hanging for…Fraud
  • Stasis for…Public Intoxication for a duration of…3d6 Days
  • Forced Immortality for…Temporal Manipulation

A Chunk of SciFi – 1.08 Zombex [Disease]

“…”
[Message can only be read by a Class-4 telepath or higher due to possible contamination with Zombex]

Name – Zombex
Primary Transmission Method – Telepathic Contact
Primary Effect – Shuts down higher mental functions

Telepathy was once thought to be nothing but a myth or story. The ability to read others minds was always thought to be a hoax. Once humanity entered to the galactic stage of their development and made contact with other races it was shown to be true. Humanity was simply a “late bloomer” with regards to telepathy. It was used among the older races to help cement peace and aid in communication. It was the primary reason humanity was left alone for so long – First contact without a TP’er present was not recommended, to prevent mishaps...

On this new worlds, some died, but other thrived in new environments.

They are known for distinctive sounds, their eggs and being considered by many to ...

A Chunk of SciFi – 1.06 – Explosive Dandelion [Plant]

“Ohh this looks nic..Achooo **** BOOM **** …”
Last known words of Alfred T Farn, first, but not last victim of the Explosive Dandelion.

Looks like: Normal Terran Dandelion
Effect: Seeds are explosive and very fragile

The Explosive Dandelion named the Terran-based flower known as Taraxacum officinale or common dandelion, is a small yellow petaled flower, that grows in almost any terrain where there are appropriate soil and nutrients. A casual glance at the flower will show that it has a slight orange tint to the end of the petals, but there almost nothing else the average person can do to tell the difference between these dangerous plants and the regular variety.

The ED, as you might expect not a natural plant...
