Ennead Games

Ideas, tools, and generators to help and inspire for your games and story-telling

[Update] 17th of February

The Weekly Round up time – Where I keep track of what I have been up to over the last week, mainly for myself, but heck, if others are interested, then hope this gives you ideas on things to do.

 

PDFs

The new PDF this week was a Quick Gen called “Heist Name Generator” although, strictly speaking, it could have been called a Crime name generator. But I took artistic licence/creative decision to change it to “Heist” as I felt the name sounded, well, better. Plus It gave me an idea for a future full generator based on heists, with details such as the number of participants, if it was successful etc.

The next planned  PDF  is about Amusing and Punny names. There was a small collection in the Helpful Lists series that was of the same style, but this compiles them into one volume and adds more, expanding from 200 to 400 “amusing” names. Some are really funny, but most are groan-worthy/dad joke levels of hilarity.

World Anvil & World Building

Last week was World Building Questions week and covered Fauna, aka the natural animals of the world

Last week, and this week, is a big one for both the ESO playthrough and Farscape Watch Party

ESO – Finished the main base game, did a side bit of work exploring the world for the Psjiiic Order,  which was appropriate considering the time travel nature of my adventures, then did a small stint in Craglorn. Craglon is a fun area, but hard. Definalty a group focused area, although there is some soloable content. Defanilty worth coming back to later once the ESO companion system is in place or a join another guild.

Farscape WP – The last 3 episodes of season 3 tonight. And they are, in my view, the most important in the series after the premier episode. We still have season 4 and Peacekeeper Wars to go and are now starting to think about what to watch afterwards – Thinking a film , to help break things up, but the eternal question is which one.

The Foundry Project

As I suspected, my biggest issue now with TFP is the ADHD/Executive Dysfunction issue. Too many options is making the brain go “woooah…cant pick!”. Have added converting to the goal/tasks list , in the hope this will jog the brain into doing things. Seeing the tasks each week really does help me move things along, as long as I don’t get too harsh on myself if , for whatever reason, I miss things.  I am thinking that a journal like entry with the table/macros listed, a sort of “book” within the VTT might work. Sometimes, having too many ideas is as bad as not enough lol.

 

Other Stuff

Got a nice thing planned to help get some sales and hopefully promote the itchi.io store. Not sure 100% when it will happen, but looking like April and will involve 95% of what I have on there.
