Ennead Games

Ideas, tools, and generators to help and inspire for your games and story-telling

[Resource] – Fast Character Maker

Some people love spending ages creating a character. But often, especially as a GM, you need to come up with a character really quicky – Your players have gone off the beaten track and want to know more about that mysterious person who ultimately has no real impact on your planned plot.

Fast Character Maker can help with this.

to quote from the site – ”

Need a few quick pre-gens for a game convention or organized play group at your local game store?

Your cousin from out of town wants to sit in and join this week’s game?

The party insists on hiring that NPC to join them for the adventure?

That failed stealth check got half the party killed and now you’re all playing back-up reinforcements?

You don’t have time to min/max your way through a character build but want to try something new?

Fast Character gets you playing fast.”


At the moment there are two games/system the site makes characters for:

  • 5e
  • Cypher (Core)


The site is very simple and easy to use, as well as being free. You can decide if there is any feature your character simply must have -such as species, or class, then decide on how you want it outputted. Click on the generate button and you are done – That it, you have a ready to use character or NPC. Obviously, you still need the books to make use of this site, but as a tool for GMs, this is one of the better ones out there – It’s fast, customisable and very simple to use.
