[Ennead Games] Dungeon Feature - Altars Ennead Games

Alters are a common feature in many dungeons. They provide a focus for sacrifices, a place to worship, or to commune with an otherworldly power. Sometimes they are used for good purposes, but the ones explorers often find are far from it.

Although designed with dungeons in mind, the Dungeon Feature series can be used on any appropriate fantasy or medieval style structure.

This generator, or series of charts, is designed to help flesh out any needed details you require. Use all of them or just one, they are entirely optional.

Contains several tables that provide a guide for the description of the altar:

  • Design
  • Altar Shape
  • Altar Size
  • Material
  • Primary Purpose
  • Protection (Both the protection level and possible trigger)
  • Quirks & Other Features
  • Tools & Decorations

Plus 3 appendixes that help to flesh out the details, each with 100 entries:

  • Appendix 1 – Quirks & Other Features
  • Appendix 2 – Tools & Decorations
  • Appendix 3 – Protection Effects

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 has a (currently neglected) blog at dave.mcalister.org.uk and runs a D&D 5e SRD website at DnD5e.info.
