A Chunk of SciFi – 1.02 – Landfall Day [Holiday]

A Chunk of SciFi – 1.02 – Landfall Day [Holiday]

“350 years ago, our ancestors found Geller, 30 light years away from Old Earth. 50 years they landed here, their FTL drive burnt out and resources almost gone. They barely survived the first few weeks, but soon they had established a colony. Despite this place being almost like Old Earth, there were dangers – we beat them back. There were challenges that we rose to and we excelled. Each day we grow stronger, but we must not forget where we came from, who helped us in our times of need and now need our help in return. And that is why we celebrate Landfall day. To say to the universe we are still here, we know our past, revel in our present and look forward to the future. Now, let the official celebrations…begin!”

A Chunk of SciFi – 1.01 – Infinite Blue [Drug]

As with yesterdays “Chunk of Fantasy”, today is the start of the SciFi version of the new format and expanded Chunk series. I’m I the process of making a list of possible subjects for the chunk series, so stay tuned on social media and here to see what possible options there will be and maybe suggest any I have missed.

A Chunk of SciFi – 1.01 – Infinite Blue [Drug]

“Many people say that the first dose of Infinite Blue is the best. You never get quite the same high afterwards. It’s always there, just out of reach, tempting you, showing you what you are missing. You can get close but you never shake that feeling that it could be better if you just took a little bit more. Just a tiny bit more. So next time you take a little bit more...

Adventure Outline Maker – SciFi Edition and RPG Round Up

Adventure Outline Maker – SciFi Edition

As a GM or a story creator, you can often find yourself stuck for ideas. Especially after your players decide to go off carefully beaten track you designed. Or you forgot your notes and need to come up with at least the outline for an adventure in a few moments.

The Adventure Outline Maker is for just those kinds of moments. Using a series of d100 tables it creates an adventure outline, with contact type, your mission, where it is, and what complication there is, or what help you may get, even a suggested reward. This outline is then used to help you come up with a full adventure or side Mission. This particular version covers the sci-fi genre, but with some tweaking could be used in a near-modern setting as well.

Each aspect table has 100 entries, with some duplication to reflect the more common entries.

There are also two examples outlines included, showing how the process works and taking you through it step by step. You will need to flesh out the details yourself, but that is not a hard thing to do and Ennead Games can help with that as well, with our numerous generators for backgrounds, names and more.

AOM-SE features 9 d100 tables that cover…

  • The contact/mission givers personality
  • 2 for the NPCs profession
  • 2 for the mission itself, one for the target one for the action required
  • The location of the mission
  • A complication list – What could go wrong on the mission?
  • Help/Opposition – who is helping or hindering you?
  • Reward – A suggested reward type for all you efforts
