d100 Unpleasant Masters & Life Events for Fighters

Fighters get to grow up with unpleasant early careers it training too.
Why not roll three times to triple your fun (or trauma)

When your DM asks for your 6 page background you can use this to develop a wrist slitting tale of woe and suffering so nobody ever asks again. The cleric one probably the nicest one so far. I assume in a magical world lawful good priests celibate would be less likely to be abusive and magic could expose them. Remember successful happy people probably don't risk lives killing monsters in holes for money. Probably don't use in Dragonlance.

D100 Post Crash Super Structures

So Im doing a spacebook right now and fixing some gaps in old projects. Funnily enough my space hab wrecks led me into making my Xor fantasy setting. This could be for oldschool sf, metamorphosis alpha, gamma world or my Planet Psychon.

This is about the superstructure in between the urban, habitat or infrastructure models which are more or less slef contained and modular attachments to the superstructure. In a colony ship this might mean the ship is broken up on arrival. Sometimes the structural frame is left in orbit or recycled for other space structures.

Super Structure Is the framework of the ship. Infrastructure modules are the basic components of the ship technology and life support. Urban modules are mostly ultra dense housing for crew but will have common areas and open spaces to make years of living bearable. Many habs are now feral and over run or isolated and cult like. Hab or Habitat Modules are functional ecosystems where humans have copied natural habitats. Some are quite large and constitute the wilderness of the ship. Many have colonies or factions living in them.

A encounter table for this might be good as the super structure is where people travel between modules so has greatest variety of travellers and threats. Modules will have own local mostly d12 tables or several unless a very diverse eco system but even the than most creatures are not dangerous. Normally. I guess a undead Brazilian rain forest might be awful.

Urban Hab Modules
Infrastructure Modules Flesh structures for bioships and alien ecologies on ship
Inhabitants of flesh zone
Factions of post crash ship
Maps and generators
Eco Hab Module
Space Loot

I may end up juggling these with infrastructure modules in final form

d10 Styles of Space Wreck
1 Generation colony ship, lost in space
2 Generation colony ship, arrived somewhere but malfunctioned
3 Generation colony ship, built but never completed exodus
4 Asteroid colony or asteroid hull colony ship
5 Orbital colony, never intended for much travel
6 Fused mass of orbitals and ships cobbled together by survivors
7 Mass of fused ships from hyperspace lost for aeons in the void
8 Orbital colony fitted with drives lost in deep space 
9 Assemblage of space junk, orbitals, ships, asteroids and any found space junk
10 Megastructure colony like a artificial planetoid or ringworld around a mood

Factions are the main groups that live on a space wreck.
Wild animals in habs or some machines are nuetral but can still be hostile or ignore you

The Command System Language

Lawful aligned passengers hope to repair the ship and continue the mission or work on civilizing the ship and maintaining it. They speak the Command System language of the old crew which machines respond to.

The Trade Tongue Language
Nuetral is a guttural trade language developed over centuries by ships traders and wandering shaman and story tellers. The written form is mostly for simple record keeping of time, distance, weight and counting stockpiles. Other than basic number strokes most of the writen form is icons, symbols and graphics from the ancients machines and consoles.

The Sabotage Jammerz Language
Chaos is based on the criminal language of terrorists, hackers, drug dealers, cults and all kinds of black market of goods and services. It is cryptic to avoid being overheard by security or machines good for bribery and covert activity. The first virused machines came to use it and then undead and mutants were observed using it. It has become the language of sabotage, selfishness and evil. The written form is secret marks and gang signs often incorporated in graffiti mostly as warnings.

The Healer Order speak a version of Lawful and they sacrifice their lives helping the common good

The Null Order speak a version of Chaotic and they wish to destroy the ship and all failed lives on board

Other cult or tribal languages exist based on the main three or even a hybrid.

Super Structure Sections are not as big as major modules which can be removed and switched around. Some of the early FTL engines were one way one use only.
