[Ennead Games] R.I.G.S. Result Volume 3 Ennead Games

What is R.I.G.S.?

A while ago I created a generator for myself and my games that output randomized magic items. The idea behind it was to create a system that could output a couple of words or more that would suggest an item name or concept. The challenge then becomes to take this randomly created item concept and make something that can be used in various games and stories.

I called this system the Random Item Generation System (R.I.G.S.), hence the title -R.I.G.S. Results.

Each item has 6 aspects. All but the last aspect, details, has been randomly created using R.I.G.S.. These are not set in stone and if it feels better to change something one way, such as the activation method, then feel free to change it.

System generic, these items are designed with a fantasy or medieval setting in mind, but a few of them could be used as-is in a sci-fi or modern or even horror setting with only a minor amount of tweaking.

The items you’ll find in this volume :-

  • Bow of the Raven – Summon a flock when you fire from this bow
  • Chaos Magic Cube – Do you dare roll this die?
  • City Octahedron – Summon an entire city with this small item
  • Divination Elixir – Want to know more?
  • Forge of the Supreme Weapon – The fore of the Sky-Smith is yours to use
  • Helm of the Horse – Transform into a horse or other quadraped with this item
  • Interpreting Languages Chair – The ultimate tool for diplomats and negotiators
  • Lightning Skull – Command a potent force of nature
  • Teleporting Chariot – Teleport at high speeds
  • Umbral Bomb – A bomb designed to punch a hole in the fabric of reality

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.
