[Ennead Games] Campaign Chunk - Volume 8 Ennead Games

A Campaign Chunk is an item, place or something else that can fit into any campaign or story with little or no modification, although some will be more suited to certain genres than others.

They have few stats and can help provide starting grounds for adventures or help fill in the gaps when your players go off exploring and you need something for them to do. Each has several hooks or rumour that can be used. Which of these are true and which are false?

Originally first published on the blog/website of Ennead Games, these Chunks have been compiled into a handy volume. Their details may have been cleaned up and more hooks or rumours added to them, but they basically the same.


  • Book of the Dead – An ancient Egyptian funerary text.
  • Farbrough Penal Colony – A remote island prison that can only be accessed by a 30 minutes boat ride.
  • Fig Plants – This chunk is all about a soft, sweet fruit.
  • Grand Tour – A grueling bike race across varied terrain.
  • Hoodening – An odd tradition where someone is on a hobby-horse and has a cloth made from old sacks placed over them.
  • International Space Authority – An organisation to help prevent clashes and to oversee international co-operation.
  • Solaris, the solar powered town – Solaris is a home for testing new or improved design in energy production.
  • Vertigo City – A large city within a city.
  • “What if?” Magazine – “What if?” is a speculative fiction magazine.
  • Young Explorers – Many countries have some kind of organisation that supports young people in their physical, mental and spiritual development.

About Dave McAlister

Dave has been roleplaying for over 30 years, having played and/or run most mainstream systems with the espionage genre being an early favourite. So much so that, in 1999, he started Modus Operandi. That same year he joined the Sarbreenar "Living" campaign team as their plotline controller before moving across to the Living Spycraft campaign team (as UK Regional Branch Director) in 2003. 2003 also saw the birth of UK Role Players as well as Dave's first freelance writing appointment (co-writing World Militaries and consulting on both US Militaries and Battlegrounds, all for Spycraft). Since then, Dave has concentrated on supporting the UK gaming scene. He has organised and run several small, one-day, events and was the RPG Area Manager for Gen Con UK in 2004. His current favourite systems are Dungeons & Dragons (specifically 5th Edition), Savage Worlds and Cinematic Unisystem. He blogs at dave.mcalister.org.uk.
