This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.
NOTICE: Some online security services are reporting that information for a limited number of users from this site is for sale on the "dark web." As of right now, there is no direct evidence of this, but change your password just to be safe.

Greetings!

Very nice set of Sci Fi Tables you have developed there, Geeky! Outstanding!

I'm not into Sci Fi games, unfortunately, otherwise I would gladly offer my assistance. Looks very good though, brother!

Semper Fidelis,

SHARK

Thanks for your kind words.

Are we going for power source 2, then? 'cause I have a few

1) Luminiferous
2) Radiant
3) Fractal (although that's better as an Effect)
4) Astral
5) Plasmic (perhaps better as Plasma in the Catalyzed column)
6) Lanthanic
7) Entropic (Again, perhaps an Effect)
8) Enthalpic
9) Celestial
10) Ytterbic (what is it about Ytterby, Sweden that makes for a cluster of otherwise very rare elements? The Ytterbic Effect!)

Hopefully, that will get things going...

Hey! Thanks! I meant adding 20 entries to the table, as in roll 1d100, as in having 1-50 entries, but that sure helps!

As for your notes, don't over think it, it's for a Pulp game, they used to have the more crazy names for stuff back then.

Prefixes:

Super-
Di-
Bis-
Tris-
Tetra-
Penta-
Hexa-
Hepta-
Octa-
Nona-
Deca-
Icosa-

Hmm... More later, I think.

With these the table has now 50 prefixes, which means that column is full.

Prefixes:

Reverse
Multi
Omni
Null
Bi
Tri

Edited to add:

Power Source:
Ecto
Sonic
Black-Hole
Quantum
Cosmogonic
Quazar
White Dwarf

Arc
Warp

With this the power source column is also 50, so complete.

Cool Beans! *yoink*

If my Space:1889 game ever gets back off the ground, I have a resource for the Mad Scientist who is working to supply the Worm Cult with crazy weapons.

Thanks!
