    Generators Guide to Pirates and Seas

    I created a list of tools for fantasy seafaring campaigns in the Generators Guide to Pirates and Sea. It has sections on Ships, Pirates and Other Sailors, the Open Sea and the Places You'll See. Let me know any generators or other online tools which should be on the list. Thanks

    Best Sine Nomine Generator?

    Okay, I've got SWN and Godlike and I love the generators Crawford has written. I know he's got a few other products - based purely on the cool generators within, what else should I pick up?

    Small Press [Just Crunch Games] The Cthulhu Hack - From Unformed Realms

    Their arrangement was odd, and seemed to follow the symmetries of some cosmic geometry unknown to earth or the solar system. For those moments when your players have taken the inevitable path away from whatever you have planned, From Unformed Realms provides the ideal tool for conjuring up a...

    Let's talk about games with GOOD random chargen!

    I got the Traveller Bundle of Holding recently which made me look at old Traveller and MegaTraveller stuff which led me to start thinking about random character generation. I like the randfom chargen in Traveller. And I like the random chargen in WHFRP 2e (and 1e - I haven't played 3e). And the...

    Resources for Random Locations?

    When creating new locations - from individual neighborhoods or dungeons up to nations and entire planets - I like to use random generators for inspiration. So I am curious what random generator resources are out there. On the top of my head I can think of Silent Legions and the other works from...

    Does this exist: a cloud-based random generator generator

    One of the side effects of moving my gaming operation online this year is that I'm just starting to leverage all the computer tools I already have at my disposal and find ways they can improve the gaming experience. What I'd love to find is either an app or a website that gives me the tools to...

    Looking for a building type generator

    I want to run a campaign soon that requires using a very large city as the entire map. By very large city I mean a metropolis like Ptolus, Greyhawk, or Waterdeep size.

    How do you decide weather in your sim-heavy games?

    I don't always play simulationist-leaning games, but when I do, I get pretty sim-heavy. This week's burr in my sandboxing saddle is weather. I was looking at the Weather section of RQ6 and its table of precipitation based on ambient humidity got me wishing for a solid way to determine and track...

    In a recent thread, someone reminded me that I'd never finished putting the next version of my premise generator together - it'd been sitting untouched for nearly two years. :o Far be it for me to disappoint, then - I've spent the past few days whipping that revision into shape. It's available...

    [necro][FATE] I have a random relationship table, now what?

    It occurred to me today that FATE doesn't really have a lot of random generation tables. Now, I suppose it doesn't need them, but it suddenly occurred to me what one would look like, so I drew one up. Now I kind of like it, and wonder: what else could you do with this? Random "How Do They Know...

    Random Fantasy Setting Generator

    I've begun making a random setting generator for fantasy games. It's inspired by Diaspora, which has a similar thing. The general idea is that the tables should provide fun and inspiration, not that you should tie your brain in knots trying to make it work. As I see it, they could be used by...
