Infinite Space: Familiar Magic (SFRPG)

Sun, 08/19/2018 - 17:36
 Familiar Magic (SFRPG)Publisher: LPJ Design

In ancient times, a spellcaster could call upon a small animal or other creature to serve as their familiar. The familiar functioned as the spellcaster’s eyes and ears and constant companion. This practice became so common that, eventually, the presence of a familiar became synonymous with those who used magic. Now, thanks to a combination of sorcery and technology, spellcasters have rediscovered the benefits of a familiar. Here is a new spell, find familiar, to add to the spell lists of both the mystic and the technomancer, followed by eight types of familiars for a caster to summon. Each familiar offers its own benefits and special abilities. Unlike the old ways, a modern spellcaster no longer uses a living animal to serve as a familiar, but rather creates one out of magically conjured materials and components.

This sourcebook contains Familiar Types:

  • Akashic Tome - This familiar appears like a thick, leather-bound book stuffed full of pages of different sizes. When consulted or asked a question, it opens itself and flips through its pages. This familiar is linked to the Akashic record and has access to this treasure trove of knowledge.

  • Ectoplasmic Emanation - This translucent blob of ectoplasm has a wicked sense of humor and enjoys causing mischief and mayhem. It is ideally suited for collecting or stealing small, handheld objects.

  • Empathic Dove - A pulse of magical light solidifies into the form of a dove or similar bird-like creature. The empathic dove picks up on the emotions and surface thoughts of nearby creatures, while also helping its caster maintain peace and mediate disputes.

  • Gremlin - From a distance, a gremlin resembles an oddly misshapen and shrunken goblin. Only up close can one see that it actually consists of a swarm of buzzing, swirling nanobots.

  • Hologrammatic Spider - Formed by a series of highly nimble force fields, this hard-light hologram looks like a spindly arachnid suffused with a pale amber glow. It is adept at treating injuries and assisting a physician in caring for the sick and the wounded.

  • Quicksilver Globe - This familiar resembles a fist-sized sphere of mercury with cat-like eyes. It functions as a useful—and difficult to detect—spy for observing or collecting information.

  • Scavenger Bot - Cobbled from seemingly random pieces of broken technology, this machine is surprisingly sturdy despite its homely appearance. It excels at scavenging technological parts and components and repurposing them for other uses.

  • Serpentine Code - While this familiar resembles a two-foot length of cable or bundled wire, it moves and writhes like a snake. It excels at slipping inside computers and other technological systems to grant its caster enhanced access. When penetrating or while inside a computer, it exists as electrical energy and lines of code rather than in solid form.

Shipyards are places devoted to the construction of vessels of all sorts, including rowboats, keelboats, longships, sailing ships, warships, and galleys.

Both this title and City Builder overall are intended to be compatible with the needs of almost any ancient, Dark Ages, Middle Ages, Renaissance, fantasy, or other role-playing milieu. It was developed by Jim Clunie, Michael O.

Path to The Gnome's Argosy

Sat, 08/18/2018 - 17:38
Path to The Gnome's ArgosyPublisher: Ramen Sandwich Press

A small merchant ship called The Gnome's Argosy has crashed against a jagged reef just outside the major port city for which it was bound. The merchant who owns the cargo is willing to hire adventurers to recover an item of great value from the wreck, but a band of skum claim the site as part of their territory. If your party takes the job, they'll find that the situation is more complicated than they were led to believe, but on the other hand, they'll also find a segue to Found by the Way #03: Path to Oyster Cove, if they want to follow it. You can also run this module as a stand-alone, if you prefer.

Path to The Gnome's Argosy is published under the terms of the open license for Pathfinder RPG. It does not specify a particular campaign setting, and it is written to allow you to integrate it into your own campaign world by filling in various details.

Found by the Way is a series of short modules created by veteran RPG writer and developer Douglas Sun for use with Pathfinder RPG First Edition (Ramen Sandwich Press will continue to support them going forward by making available for free conversion notes for Pathfinder Second Edition, if necessary). Think of them as glittering mosaic tiles that you can drop into a campaign to provide your player characters with diverting side quests and memorable interludes while they follow the overall story arc. They help you keep your players energized and entertained — and maybe they'll even level up and upgrade their gear — while you press the Pause button on your larger campaign.

Modifier GeneratorPublisher: Ken Wickham

quickly, first, similarly ...

This table shows modifier categories with 12 or more modifiers for each category including degree, time, contrast, unity, manner, cause-and-effect, and place words.

This is a flexible modifier generator that is meant to aid or take the place of a Gamemaster (GM) for modifying descriptions or actions of characters, creatures, objects, places, and things. They modify how, when, or why something is described or does something.

A 12x12 table optimized for 1d12 but with results for 2D6, 1D20, 3D6, and D100 (percentile) systems is included. It makes it a versatile description generating engine.

The keywords are meant to help trigger thoughtful and inspirational ideas. Its generic enough for any genre.

Included are a total 144 listed modifiers in the entire table.

They may be used in writing, solo gaming, or to aid a GM in showing character mood descriptions.

It is intended to be a paid upgrade to work with all the other generators including the Solog Fact Generator, Description Generator, Mood-Emotion Generator, Sound Generator, Character Generator, Motivation Generator, Plot Generator, Knowledge Generator, Plot Generator, Body Language Generator, Solo Engine or Dialogue Engine or be used separate to add one or more modifier to story or game settings.

2 pages: It's first page is the image shown on the cover thumbnail —  the instructions and example — and the second page is the chart turned longways 144 results.

This differs from the fact generator in that the results are completely focused on modifier words rather than including other sensory or cognitive results.

It didn't take long for entrepreneurs to arrive in the floating kingdom of Aerineya. Once adventurers and wizards began to venture into the sky in search of ancient treasures, various quick thinking landlords recognised that they would need somewhere to rest up there, and so various taverns were constructed.

Niti’s Parade & Other Entertainments aka All About Carnivals and FairesPublisher: Board Enterprises

    How fun is your game world?  Not when everybody is killing monsters, but once they get back to the city.  OK, there’s a tavern, and shopping, but is there any fun?

    After the amount of work you’ve put into all of the permanent things in your world, you probably haven’t put the amount of work into the temporary things, things like circuses, trade fairs, carnivals, and local fairs.  And since you probably won’t be putting that much work into them, we did it for you.  It’s all here, the circuses, the acts, the food, the games, the fun!  OK, and some of the business of them as well.

    If you’re looking for a ton of new ideas, ideas you can easily use in your existing game world or use to craft a new game world, then Small Bites is what you’re looking for.  Our goal is to take a subject, whether an archetype, a monster class, or some other FRPG theme and bring you as much content about it as we can.  But this isn’t a simple one-shot supplement.  We want to get you involved in the process - giving us the themes you want most, the articles you like the best, and the feedback we need to make you happy.

    This is the “World Walker” edition.  The Game Master edition gives you even more, including ideas about campaigns, enemy characters, and world building.  We know that veteran and starting players and game masters are all going to find things they can use, and ideas to spark their characters, campaigns and game worlds!  Come on - You’ve got nothing to lose!

Room Name Generator

Sat, 08/18/2018 - 12:22
Room Name GeneratorPublisher: Azukail Games

This is a generator consisting of three d100 tables that can be used to generate unusual names for rooms, whether these be found in dungeons, castles or other locations. These names can be used to add a degree of pretension for a certain type of NPC, make a location more evocative or perhaps create ideas for an otherwise empty room.

The three tables can be used in a number of different ways. Results can be combined from Table 1 and Table 2, from Table 2 and Table 3, from Tables 1, 2 and 3 or from Table 1, Table 2, Table 1 and Table 3. Filler words such as "the," "of" and "of the" should be used to combine the results, and many results have plurals and some have alternatives. Results that don't make sense should be discarded.

Here are room names generated using the four described methods:

"The Infinite Mausoleum"

"The Cistern of Plagues"

"The Crumbling Barrow of the Vampires"

"The Shattered Kennel of the Diabolic Golems"

The tables can be used in more ways, by rolling more times on each.
