[Ennead Games] Equipment Maker 1: Shields Ennead Games

Everyone who goes on an adventure uses equipment. Without it, their adventuring days would come to a halt quite quickly.

This generator doesn’t give you the details of any powers or abilities that are named or generated, that part is left up to you. It could simply be a description or the names could have real abilities tied to them.

This edition of Equipment Maker covers shields, from the humble buckler to the impressive tower.

Master Description Table: 10 options here for the format of your shield name/concept, giving thousands of possibilities.
Descriptor: A quick one-word description for the shield name (d100 table)
Material: what type of material is it made from. (d100 table, but with duplications)
Power/Effect – Prefix: First power/effect or property it may have (d100 table)
Power/Effect – Suffix: Second power/effect or property it may have (d100 table)

Optional Details

Some extra information or details you may want for your description, such as :-

Colouration:What colours, if any, can be found on the shield?
Damage/condition: Is it in perfect condition or blood-stained, or worse?
Type: What type of shield is it, a buckler or tower or something else?
Symbol type: Does the shield have a symbol on it? If so what type?

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.
