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

A Chunk of SciFi – 2.01 – Funganoid [Plant/Fungus]

A Chunk of SciFi – 2.01 – Funganoid [Plant/Fungus]

“I’d not seen Claire in a few days. In her last report, she said she had found something she thinks could change the face of our profession. When I found her I was, well surprised was not the answer. There was two of them…her.., lying on the ground, covered in a fine dust. The stuff made me sneeze badly, like when I had hay fever as a kid. With the solar storm getting worse we had no time to decide who was who so the rest of the search party took them both back to the ship. The real Claire was fine, but the duplicate was…well..off.She was very pale and reacted badly to one of the test. And when i say reacted badly I mean she exploded into a cloud of spore…”

Many beings think that plants and fungus are essentially harmless...

[Resource] – Space Engine

This week’s resource is very useful for the sci-fi genre and is called Space Engine. To quote from their webpage –

“SpaceEngine is a realistic virtual Universe you can explore on your computer. You can travel from star to star, from galaxy to galaxy, landing on any planet, moon, or asteroid with the ability to explore its alien landscape. You can alter the speed of time and observe any celestial phenomena you please. All transitions are completely seamless, and this virtual universe has a size of billions of light-years across and contains trillions upon trillions of planetary systems. The procedural generation is based on real scientific knowledge, so SpaceEngine depicts the universe the way it is thought to be by modern science...

A Chunk of SciFi – 1.09 Esper Guard [Class/Profession]

A Chunk of SciFi – 1.09 Esper Guard [Class/Profession]

“Espers, psyks, call em what you will. Since humanity started reaching out towards the stars their number has increased. Some say it’s because of the cosmic radiation, or that humanity as a whole has evolved…hah…Whatever the reason, we’ve been given a gift with these people. You know the odd thing? There wasn’t the hatred and fear towards them that plagued our planet for generations beforehand. Maybe we learnt our lesson with the race riots and such. Who knows. One thing I will tell you, though, one politician to another, I will never go anywhere these days without at least one in my security detail..”

Class/Role – Bodyguard/Security
Primary Ability – TK (Telekinetic) Shield Generation
