So What's The Human Called, Anyway? II

Thu, 02/16/2012 - 08:44
So What's The Human Called, Anyway? IIPublisher: Raging Swan Press

A Pathfinder Roleplaying Game GM'S RESOURCE by Creighton Broadhurst

So your PCs have wandered into a nearby town. Perhaps they are relaxing in the tavern talking with the locals, haggling with a merchant or trying to gather information about a nearby ruin from a sage. Then they ask “so what’s this bloke called, anyway?” At this point, the GM normally uses the first name that pops into his head (probably “Bob,” or the one he used minutes ago for another NPC) crushing the players’ suspension of disbelief.

So What’s The Human Called, Anyway? II banishes this problems by providing 500 first names and 250 surnames and place names of Carolingian, Egyptian, Germanic, Gothic and Sumerian origin. Divided by culture, these handy tables enables the busy GM to generate literally thousands of unique names for use in his campaign. Players can also use the tables herein to create cool names for their PCs that suit the background and flavour of their GM’s campaign.

Featured Cultures:

 Carolingian

 Egyptian

 Germanic

 Gothic

 Sumerian

This product is a Dual Format PDF. The downloadable ZIP file contains two versions, one optimised for printing and use on a normal computer and one optimised for use on a mobile device such as an iPad.

Magnificent Manors & Tatty Taverns - Game Master´s Survival Pack Volume IPublisher: The Chaos Society

Magnificent Manor & Tatty Tavers
- Game Master´s Survival Pack Volume I -

No time to develop a castle, temple or mansion for a game session?

No floor plan for an inn handy when a bar brawl breaks out... again?

Then you need “Magnificent Manors & Tatty Taverns - Game Master´s Survival Pack Volume I“.

Inside you will find
- ten floor plans for all occassions:
- seven complex buildings, plus
- three inns in extra large size
ready to use.

Each building comes with:
- a sketch of the building to show your players
- two sets of complex floor plans (one for the players, the other one for the GM)
- an adventure idea in/around this building

Easy to use!

Suitable for ALL game systems:
Fantasy:
for instance - RuneQuest - HeroQuest - Dungeons & Dragons – Harnmaster -
Horror & Mystery:
for instance - Call of Cthulhu – World of Darkness – Gumshoe -
Cyberpunk & Science Fiction:
for instance - Shadowrun – Cyberpunk – Traveller -

The adventure ideas with a fantasy setting use names, creatures and places of the fantasy world of Glorantha (with permission of Greg Stafford), well known as the default setting of the role playing games “RuneQuest” and “HeroQuest”. Even so, the adventure ideas should be easily apaptable for most other fantasy settings.

The Chaos Society is always interested in joined publications. Magnificent Manors & Tatty Tavers is such a case in which we joined forces with "Redaktion Phantastik", a german fan publisher, to publish a nice, and useful booklet in english language, and with gloranthan adventure ideas.

Shadowrun: Safehouses

Wed, 02/15/2012 - 17:45
 SafehousesPublisher: Catalyst Game Labs

Hiding from the Heat

If it hasn’t happened to you yet, it will. A run will go south. People will be looking for you. Their eyes will be everywhere—your home, your friends’ houses, the places you hang out, even the spots where you buy your soykaf. They’re looking for you, waiting for you, and when they find you, they’re not going to talk. It’ll be a single shot, or a flash of sharp steel, and you’ll be done.

To avoid this, you need to lay low. You need a place where no one will look for you, and where you’ll have enough of life’s basics to get you by. Don’t know where to find such a place? You’re in luck, chummer—we’ve got the guide for you. Whether your acquiring and stocking your own bolt hole or engaging professional safehouse managers, we’ve got the info you need to live to fight another day.

Safehouses is a supplement for Shadowrun, Twentieth Anniversary Edition that provides both flavor text and rules to help runners acquire or find the hideouts they need to stay out of harm’s way. It includes sample safehouses, equipment suggestions for the well-stocked hideaway, and safehouse creation rules that work with the Advanced Lifestyles rules from Runner’s Companion. Get Safehouses, stay safe, and be ready to charge back into the shadows once the trouble you’re in has blown over.

Wisdom from the Wastelands Issue #3: High-Tech Weapons

Wed, 02/15/2012 - 06:02
Wisdom from the Wastelands Issue #3: High-Tech WeaponsPublisher: Skirmisher Publishing

Like magical weapons in fantasy games, high-technology firearms are treasures that adventurers seek out with great eagerness in the post-apocalyptic world. No matter how cool a weapon is, however, players will always be looking for something better to use against the many hazards that populate the science fantasy post-apocalyptic wastes, and this third issue of Wisdom from the Wastelands is devoted to new toys that Game Masters can use to reward — or punish — their players. Several of the new weapons presented in this issue have the option of different types of ammunition, adding even more variety to a game.

This publication is dedicated to providing useful information, game content, and ideas to players of modern, science fiction, and post-apocalyptic table-top and role-playing games in general and to fans of Goblinoid Games’ Mutant Future RPG in particular. The rules it contains are compatible with it and any others that use the "Basic" system introduced in the most popular role-playing games of the early 1970s and are easily adaptable to many other games (especially successor systems, to include those covered by the Open Game License).

Our goal is to release a new thematic issue of this publication just about every week and to have it contain a variety of useful and earnest content that will inspire Game Masters and players alike and provide them with things that they can immediately plug into their games. We very much hope you will find this and subsequent issues of the Wisdom from the Wastelands to be useful and enjoyable!
