Alien technologies and adaptations to a (mostly) human world, like organic armours, alien cyborgs, quake 4 like cyborgs, mutants caused by alien virus, etc.
Expedition to the Barrier Peaks
This 1980 S3 module was written by Gary Gygax and featured strong science fiction elements. It introduced several new monsters, such as vegepygmies*, froghemoth, alien plants, androids, and various police and worker robots. Additional gear available to the players include blaster rifles, laser pistols, powered armour, anti-grav belts, and sleep gas grenades. Finally there is the ship itself, which included sci-fi furniture, control panels, and all sorts of weird machines and devices; there’s plenty of potential for a sci-fi tileset. The module itself was well illustrated, providing numerous examples.
Fly me to the Moon
Lunar themed objects, tilesets, creatures for modern, fantasy or sci-fi settings!
Let’s Catch the Catbus
All things Studio Ghibli. This is not just from the films directed by Hayao Miyazaki, but from all of their films. OK the Catbus from “My Neighbour Totoro” might be a really big ask, but there is so much that is not so hard. In fact I think Totoro itself should be relatively easy. There is such breadth of material here that there are things that would fit into any world not just an orientally themed one.
Make Them Feel Special
New items, feats, and more for characters with different prestige classes. Maybe create new prestige classes.
Not of This Time
Creatures and objects from the distant past and distant future brought into the current time, where they really don’t belong. Could include things like distant dragon ancestors, ancient more feral and bestial version of orcs, ****** erectus or neanderthals, maybe some fae halfway transformed intro and elves or some giant squids and snakes, mindflayers as time travellers, time portals, etc.
Once Upon a Time
Content inspired by various Disney movies and other fairy tales. Frozen, Sleeping Beauty, Maleficent, Aladdin, etc. (This one is similar to April 2012’s “Folk Tales & Myths”. However, it specifically mentions certain stories that were adapted by Disney studios and seems to be geared toward “lighter” aesthetics than the older theme went for.)
Objects and creatures in the wrong place at the wrong time. Examples include: creatures that appear lodged in some crevice or pipe or even stuck in the classic NWN portcullis door, classic “smoking boots”, legs/arms pinned under boulders, corpses with wagon tracks across them, non-animated creatures in sitting/laying positions for dramatic “dying breath” conversations, spilled and broken items, peg-legged NPCs, and more.
New skyboxes - pretty self explanatory.
Thieves World/Nehwon Mythos
Content based on Tales of the Vulgar Unicorn Series (and could potentially include Fafhrd and the Grey Mouser Nehwon Mythos, as similar/related genre).
New on the poll this month are Alien Invasion and Expedition to the Barrier Peaks.
