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

56-60 Bad breath
61-65 Exotic scent
66-70 Exotic clothing
71-75 Unique jewelry

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.

Share what amazing, awesome and funny mottoes you’ve created on our Discord server!

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.

Synthesising the Sigil System

We have a few mods out now, and one thing we always keep in mind when designing them is to make sure they can all be used together. You can create characters using all the mods, your characters can use the powers and abilities from all the mods, and everything will be balanced with each other and feel like they belong. But since each mod is self contained and comes out individually, it can sometimes be hard to see how they can all be used be used together.

And that’s why we are synthesising the Sigil System with the next mod we are working on.

It’s called Sigil Synthesis and what it will do is show you how you can use all the mods together. The mod will be full of pre-made characters that were made using some or all of the mods. With all the characters, you’ll see all the chargen options from the mods that were used to create them, a full character sheet you can use in your games, and some backstory for the characters to give them some life. But the biggest thing with each character will be us walking you through the character creation process for each character and giving you a lot of hints, tips and clues on how you can effectively use the rules in all the mods when it comes to actually playing the characters.

Sigil Synthesis is the mod that will never stop growing. With each new mod we put out, we’ll come back to Sigil Synthesis and add in new characters using the newest mod and all the old ones, so you can expect there to be dozens and dozens of characters in there by the end of it.

Scarlet Bones is released

The next mod for the Sigil System is out now and it focuses entirely on blood, bone, gore, and becoming immortal.

You can be a blood mage and jump your consciousness from host to host, becoming the perfect infiltrator; and shape your (or others) blood telekinetically to form weapons, armour or tools as you need them.

Or you can be a necromancer, forever living with your decaying body, but raising undead slaves to do your bidding, fight your battles and grant you access to supernatural powers beyond mortal reckoning.

Just remember that immortality and otherworldly powers aren’t free, or even cheap, and you’ll need to pay for it with your very humanity.

Sigil System Feedback Survey

We always want to make the best games we can, and to do that we need to know how we’re doing. If we know what we’re doing wrong then we can fix it, and if we know what we’re doing right then we know not to mess with it.

Your feedback is more valuable to us than gold and silver, and we would be eternally grateful if you could do us a favour and fill out the Sigil System Feedback Survey. It will be your chance to tell us exactly what you think about the system and you can even say what type of projects you want us to work on next. You will have our undivided attention.

We’ve also got a gift for those who do they survey: you can grab any one of our paid digital products for free. So if you’ve had your eye on a game of ours, but haven’t gotten it yet, now’s your chance to get it for free.

If you want to chat more about the survey and everything else we do, then come join our Discord server!
