[Ennead Games] R.I.G.S. Result Volume 5: Weapons Ennead Games

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.

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.

  • Aportation Broadsword – Teleport what you hit
  • Axe of Destruction – Unleash destruction
  • Crossbow of The Seige – Fire a bolt that can break walls
  • Dagger of Rot – Infect your enemies with diseases
  • Knuckleduster of Explosions – Punch with the force of an explosion
  • Shortbow of Winter – Create snow and ice based effects
  • Spear of the Necromancer – Kill your enemies then raise them to do your bidding
  • Sphere of Speed – Hitting your target with this can affect their speed
  • Staff of the Silent – Those who use this staff cannot be heard
  • Sword of Guilt – Bring forth your enemies deepest feelings of guilt

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.
