A Chunk of SciFi – 2.04 – The ZPG Implosion Cascade [Disaster]

A Chunk of SciFi – 2.04 The ZPG Implosion Cascade [Disaster]

 “Evacuate everyone….now!”

Recorded transmission, just before the initial ZPGIC Event

The discovery/confirmation of so-called Zero Point energy and how to harness it was heralded as one of the major breakthroughs any civilisation can make. Discovered by a, at the time unknown species, this tech brought them fame, fortune and attention. Luckily, most of the major cultures of the time had treaties in place for just such an occurrence. Within a decade, the first ZPG (Zero Point Generator) had been built. It was clean, had no known side effects from use. It was difficult to get going, but once done, the process was, for the most part, self-sustaining...

A Chunk of SciFi – 2.03 Retcon Bomb [Weapon]

“If this gets out, the entire universe will want our destruction…”
Snippet of leaked records from “Project:Safecracker”

The system know in official records as BA-R3DS, aka Bardes, is devoid of life. Literally nothing grows there, not even a microscopic bacteria. This complete absence of life, combined with it’s reasonable proximity to 4 major starfaring cultures, including humanity, made it the perfect testing ground for weapons and other risky experiments. Many experiments took place here, from the development of the ill-fated Nano-Phage to the successful attempt at space folding and much more...

A Chunk of SciFi – 2.02 Transhumanist Jam [Food]

This Chunk base idea was suggested by Kearin Danoor via twitter.

A Chunk of SciFi – 2.02 Transhumanist Jam [Food]

“Transhumanism – The intellectual and cultural movement that affirms the possibility and desirability of fundamentally improving the human condition through applied reason, especially by developing and making widely available technologies to eliminate ageing and to greatly enhance human intellectual, physical, and psychological capacities. So, remind me again, why in the name of the High-Lords left spud I am eating this jam again?….”

Transhumanist Jam, T-Jam for short, was originally made to be a joke, not to be taken seriously...

Mega Bundle last few days, A Chunk of SciFi V1 & RPG Round Up

April Mega Bundle – Last few days

Its the last few days left on the Mega PDF bundle from Ennead Games – 190+ pfs, valued at almost $300 for $20

Ennead Games Megabundle!

A Chunk of Sci-Fi – Volume 1

When the Ennead Games blog started, one of the regular features was a weekly post for various genres for games and stores. The base format got tweaked over the years, with regular updates and re-launches to keep it fresh.

Presented here are 10 compiled entries from the blog, tidied up, formatted and if needed, expanded. They are all suitable for a Sci-Fi setting, with a few usable in a near-modern setting as well.

For flavor, some of these items are set in the authors own game world, but this can easily be ignored or replaced with something of your own.
Inside this volume, you will find…

  • Esper Guard [Class/Profession] – An essential type of protection in a universe of telepaths
  • Explosive Dandelion [Plant] – A seemingly harmless flower with explosive properties
  • Hive Chicken [Animal] – The more of them that get together, the smarter they all become
  • Hyperspace Bomb [Weapon] – A bomb designed to disrupt some forms of FTL
  • Infinite Blue [Drug] – A highly addictive drug that makes you feel at once with the universe
  • Landfall Day [Holiday] – Celebrate the day your colony ship arrived
  • Myrotrophia II [Planet] – A planet that seems empty to all sensors
  • Steel Grass [Plant] – A type of grass that feels like a sharp razor
  • Ultech Personal Liferaft [Vehicle] – Your main ship about to explode? Escape in style with the UPL!
  • Zombex [Disease] – Telepaths beware of this deadly mental disease
