So if you are like me, you are always looking for easy to use tools for generating NPC’s or even ideas for new characters. I found this random tool recently and even though it is a bit on the vulgar side of things, it definitely does the above well. It is great for fleshing out some backstory ideas giving way to good plot hooks.
In playing around with it, I produced these great characters.
- STOIC HALF-ORC MONK FROM A BOARDING SCHOOL FOR THE CHILDREN OF MIDDLE-CLASS WIZARDS WHO LEFT THEIR HOME IN DISGRACE
- IMPETUOUS HUMAN DRUID FROM A RUNDOWN ADVENTURING TAVERN WHO IS UNCOMFORTABLE AROUND OLD PEOPLE (THEY SMELL LIKE DEATH)
- GRAVE ELF WARLOCK FROM A RUINED CITY WHO IS IN WAY TOO DEEP WITH THE WRONG SORT OF PEOPLE
- GROUCHY DWARF FIGHTER FROM A SMALL FAMILY BAKERY WHO IS SEARCHING FOR THE KNOWLEDGE OF TRUE IMMORTALITY
Now all that is needed is to get some good name ideas and flesh out the bits of background hooks that are there.
