[Generator Highlight] – Backgrounds & Details Full (Fantasy)

As part of my “trying to post more often” drive, it occurred to me that some of newer fans and followers may not know about my older generators. So I am working to correct this by highlighting (aiming for one a week) a different generator that have made and for which there is a free online version here.

Speaking of generators, now that the Generators and Tools page is active, the older one, simply titled Generators, will be removed from the menus system. The page will still be active, so that older link and URLS will still work, but I won’t be promoting that page anymore.

The first generator in the Highlight series is one of the biggest I have done and gives you a lot of background and details about a character in a typical fantasy genre game or story. It has links to other related subpages if you want just, for example, details on their parents.

Sample output can be found below – Click on the header to be taken to the generator page itself.
