For those who run games or make stories, the description of "A Thing", such as shape, size and so on, can be quite important. The colour or shade can be an important detail as well. A bit of clothing that belongs to one particular faction might have one major colour, with another belonging to their deadliest rivals, with the same being said for the natural world, where creatures or fauna have colours to help them hide or as warnings to predators to "stay away!"

This publication gives you a system for picking and naming various colours, from simple ones such as red, green, blue etc., to the more complex names for the colour an artist might need for their grand work!

Notes from the author :  The term colour is used here in this publication to represent both colour and shade. This was a deliberate design decision to save on space and make the text easier to read. In other words, when you see "colour", it means "colour and or shade name" or "colour/shade name". 

As this publication is for naming colours and shades, both black and white have been included. Some may argue that they are not "true" colours and yet others say they are - as with anything, context matters. If this causes you issues, as with any other Ennead Games publication, feel free to re-roll or pick another result.
