Intensity of Phobia/Desire % 01-35 36-70 71-80 81-90 91-00 Effect Slight Effect Noticeable Effect Paranoid Behavior Uncontrollable Paranoid Severe Phobia

Slight effect includes the possibility of a nervous twitch or some other disguised habit and the subject can deal with the phobia easily. Noticeable effect includes slightly erratic behavior and possibly a physical or mental reaction when exposed, but nothing serious. Paranoid behavior includes the subject looking for the object(s) of his phobia and avoiding them whenever possible. He often has trouble controlling his actions/ behavior when in contact with his phobia. Uncontrollable paranoia includes spending a large amount of time looking for the object of the phobia, often to the exclusion of things necessary for survival. There is a 10% chance the subject will become berserk and a 1% chance/turn (cumulative) of the insanity infecting the character if exposed to the phobia object(s) for an extended period of time. Total dependence upon a phobia includes not only looking for and avoiding the object of the phobia, there is also a 50/50% chance of the subject going catatonic or berserk. Chance of insanity is 3% chance/turn cumulative.

Phobias & Fear
for Fantasy Roleplayers
Phobias are a part of everyone’s lives. Most of the fears we carry are mild and can be hidden from others with little or no effort. Occasionally, someone will have a fear that is so pronounced that it affects their entire life. The phobia chart will provide you with many phobias that can be applied to any fantasy gaming system. Three ten-sided are rolled to determine the phobias your character has. Choose the ones, tens and hundreds dice before you roll. Your game master may also allow you to choose your phobias when you are developing a character. This chart can also be used to determine any “strange” effects from an unknown poison, miscast spells, etc. It is up to the individual game master to determine if the phobia does not fit your gaming scenario. If you wish, this list could also be used for likes and desires for your player characters. I have also included a small indicator for how strong your phobia or desire will be. Please note that some of these categories are general. Under colors, a player character could fear one color — red, blue, green, black, purple, etc. — or all colors. It is up to your game master to decide how to run this. The * (asterisk) indicates those items which might be broken down into a more specific phobia than the one listed. larajla / Laura Rajsic-Lanier
