d30 Quick NPC Personality Generator

d30 Quick NPC Personality Generator


In commemoration of the end of the June, and the completion of the d30 Challenge over at the Frugal GM Blog, I've put together this free d30 table for quickly generating a NPC's personality. There are many ways of creating a memorable NPC for your campaign, but I have often found that simpler is better (at least for me) and what works best is just a couple of words that describe the NPCs defining...   [click here for more]

d30 NPC Background Generator

d30 NPC Background Generator


This d30 generator helps create a bit of flavor-text background for NPCs. The idea is to use this with a few other d30 tables to create enough of a framework that a GM can flesh out with other details to make an interesting NPC. These tables were clearly inspired by the PC Priors & Particulars from HackMaster (both editions), but simplified for this particular use. The...   [click here for more]

Basically the idea for this table...   [click here for more]
