One-roll SF writing prompt

Hello, Today for SciFiFriday, I thought I would share my SF writing prompt roll sheet. When I need to write, and want to work independent from my inspiration, I get out my dice, and make one roll.

Here’s my writing prompt generator, all prettied up.

The inspiration for this table comes from Kevin Crawford’s OSR TTRPG, Stars Without Number. (The offset print edition is on sale now.) If you’d like to learn more about the game, see my previous post that briefly covers SWN.

I’m thinking about expanding this writing prompt generator to the other Tools of Fiction, if the table generates any interest.

That’s all for today, happy SciFi Friday!

I'm a science and SF content creator, specializing in writing technical scientific concepts in clear and engaging language. Alongside many writing and editing side-projects, I taught English in French universities for eight years. At university, I worked mainly for engineering Master’s programs and science undergraduates – from economics to physics, biology to psychology. My goal is to tailor SF and science content to a diverse range of audiences, and my background provides all the necessary tools to succeed.
