Event Generator

Following on from our Motto Generator and the Quick NPC Generator, here’s another little generator for you. This is the Event Generator and it’s perfect for worldbuilding and setting creation. If you want to quickly come up with names of famous and significant events that have happened in any given area, you can use this generator to come up with their names. Then you can build on those names, to create some interesting and flavourful events.

The generator is split into two parts. First decide what sort of event you are looking for, since there is four type: Conflict, Diplomacy, Culture, and Belief. Roll a d10 on any of these to see whether you got a War, a Pact, a Discovery or even a Festival. Then roll a d100 on the Names table to see what the people of your world gave this event. By the end of it, you can have the War of the Elders, the Pact of the Forest, the Discovery of the Usurpers, and the Festival of the Moon.

Quick NPC Generator

Since our Motto Generator was so popular, we thought we’d give you a few more randomisation tools that you can use in your games. Next up is a Quick NPC Generator made by James from Stormforge West. Just like the Motto Generator, you’ll eventually see this being used in a future game, and that will most likely be Grim Gears, so keep an eye on James’ Skies of Himinil setting over on World Anvil.

———-

To create an NPC, simply roll a d100 for each of the three tables below and see what sort of NPC they’ve made.

Personality Quirk

The personality quirk of an NPC is something noticeable that will make the NPC memorable and appear to have more depth. These quirks are a combination of personality traits, moods, and circumstances, which may be determined with context of the other tables. This is how the NPC acts at the given moment, and it may or may not actually represent their character if you wish to make them more in depth.

1-5 Angry
6-10 Skittish
11-15 Cheerful
16-20 Sorrowful
21-25 Nervous
26-30 Quiet
31-35 Blunt
36-40 Funny
41-45 Cold
46-50 Mean
51-55 Haughty
56-60 Humble
61-65 Logical
66-70 Kind
71-75 Motherly
76-80 Careful
81-85 Crazy
86-90 Rushed
91-95 Cruel
96-100 Generous

Goal

This is the NPCs goal at the moment. If you stop someone on the street or sitting at a table, they are either going somewhere for a reason or waiting for something. Sometimes, this goal might not fit with the current situation. In these cases, the goal is what is on the person’s mind.

1-5 Hungry
6-10 Bored
11-15 Need to relax
16-20 Making Money
21-25 Meeting a friend
26-30 Finding love
31-35 Has nowhere to go
36-40 Needs to be alone
41-45 Needs to help someone
46-50 Betraying someone
51-55 Commiting a crime
56-60 Running from something
61-65 Spend money
66-70 Confront enemies
71-75 Lost
76-80 Lying about… (roll again)
81-85 Going Home
86-90 Trying to learn something
91-95 Putting off something
96-100 Wants to have fun

Something Unique

Everyone has something unique about them. This can range from who they are to what they have. This list is of things that are noticeable right away that seem interesting, a bit off, or is just hard to ignore.

1-5 Speaks with a strong accent
6-10 Ethnicity not common
11-15 Carries a weapon
16-20 Wearing clothes beneath their station
21-25 Is obviously wealthy
26-30 Has a unique hairstyle
31-35 Is obese
36-40 Unhealthily skinny
41-45 Is wounded
46-50 Wears a mask
51-55 Uncommon hair color
56-60 Bad breath
61-65 Exotic scent
66-70 Exotic clothing
71-75 Unique jewelry
76-80 Noticeable Scar
81-85 Strange tattoos or piercings
86-90 Carrying a strange object
91-95 Is mildly deformed
96-100 They make you feel uncomfortable for no apparent reason.

d100 Motto Generator

As we tinker away on our various projects, we also happen to make some things that very rarely see the light of day. The Motto Generator is one of them. It’s too good to keep in the dark, however, so we’re sharing it with you so you can use it in your own games. Eventually you’ll see it in one of our games or mods, so keep your eyes on this space, but for now, see what you can do with the generator.

To create your own motto, all you need to do is roll 3d100. Take your first result from the Word List, your second result from the Joiners, and your third result from the Word List again. That’s it, you got your own motto now that you can use for any character, faction, organisation or who-knows-what in your settings and games.

The Stormforge West Roadmap

Haunt is selling like hotcakes over on DriveThruRPG and is well on its way to hitting that Copper medal. Stormforge West is more than just one game, however, so here’s James to talk about the future of Stormforge West and what you can expect to see from them.

———-

The purpose of this post is to tell all of you my plans for the future. Now that Haunt is released, I want to focus on more games. I love making these games and sharing them with you and I want you to be aware of things to come. Note, these are not set in stone. The order of these and their contents may change over time. This post is not to tell you what WILL be released. Instead, this post is to tell you the direction my thoughts of things to come.

I have three largeish projects I am working on. The first is called Grim Gears. This is a game in the Sigil System ruleset about Brothers Grimm style fairy tails set in a sky-island world with a clockwork aesthetic. The focus of this game will be on the setting and the stories told within. Grim Gears is a collaborative project, so hopefully things will move quickly for it. I have never worked with another for a product, so it is an exciting experience.

The second large game is actually my first real RPG. The name of the game is Gates and I have been working on it off and on for quite a while. Gates is about a group of adventurers from different worlds and genres. Cyborg ninjas fighting alongside werewolf knights. Cowboy deadeyes who works with a vampire CEO. These are just a few examples of the characters in that game. The game will focus on cinematic combat and crazy genre mashed adventures.

The third large game I have in the works has little work going into it. This project has no name, but it will be about scholars from various schools being sent to newly discovered locations to log information. It is a game about finding artifacts, learning of new cultures, and trying to amass more knowledge for your report than the other players.

Those are the three main projects I will be working on. However, during those projects I will be making several smaller projects. The first will be a mod for the Sigil System. This mod, Rituals and Recipes, is nearly complete and will be about performing magic rituals and crafting magic potions. It will add a little bit of wizardry to your games.

Now that Haunt is released, I have gotten a lot of feedback and I know many want a module for it. So, that is in the works as well! The module will have a few different haunts for a map that will be supplied. It will also have further description of how to make your own haunts.

After that module, I plan to release a game called Odyssey of the Few. It is a small RPG about the same size as Haunt. It is also just as strange. Instead of playing a character, you take on the role of a Fate. This means you guide the party alongside the other Fates. Your goal will be to solve the players goal while also skewing things to complete your own personal goal.

These are the projects I am going to release, in that approximate order. I will be constantly creating of course. I will be making many splat books for Sigil, Haunt, and other products. I could go on and on about my ideas, but the ones I have talked about are the ones that will likely be actually finished. Eventually, I will also begin a YouTube channel to talk about my games and ideas. Alongside the YouTube channel will be a patreon so you may support me and my work. However, that will not be for another year until that gets started.

What mod should be done next

We always have a few ideas for future mods floating around. Unfortunately we can’t work on them all at the same time, so we have to pick one and leave the rest on the back burner for now. Here’s your chance to tell us which mod you’d like us to work on next.

CLICK HERE to check out the poll and have your say. You can only pick one of the proposed mods, so if you like more than one idea, remember that all these ideas will eventually get worked on, and we’ll make new polls as we go through the mods.

Haunt is released

As the title of the blog says, the Haunt RPG is now released and available only on DriveThruRPG for $4.95! Click the cover above or HERE to get your hands on Haunt.

If you haven’t been following the blog posts and don’t know about Haunt, here’s a quick intro:

Haunt does exactly what the title implies, it sets your characters in a spooky location and then sets the horrors upon them.

It’s a game that is set up quickly and gets your players into the game even quicker and easier, but the thing that makes Haunt special is its Secrets System.

In Haunt, players keep secrets from the GM and these secrets are the PCs’ lifeline. Whenever they make a mistake, the GM asks them a question to try and unravel what hidden secrets they have kept buried.

If the GM discovers all their secrets, it’s game over.

So get Haunt now and see how long you can survive before the creatures of the night descend upon you.
