Tattoo generator now live

Today I added the Tattoo Generator to the site. A sample can be seen below. It’s also been added to the main Backgrounds & Details generator but assumes that the character has a tattoo. If they don’t or you don’t want the character to have one, then you can ignore this section. As always, clicking on the various headers will take you to the appropriate generator page.

Personal Details generator now live

The rather extensive personal details generator is now live.  There are something like 5 more categories to be added from the BDK2 (Background & Details Kit2 fantasy edition). A few bits have been left out due to restrictions in the generator code being used, so if you want the full experience, you’ll have to get the pdf (which can be done here at DrivethruRPG and Open Gaming Store)

Hometown Overview now live and BDK Gen expanded

This week I have added both the Hometown Overview to the generator collection and height/weight above average/typical for the physical description part of the complete background generator.

Sibling Details generator now live

Work continues to expand the Background and Details generator and this week adds siblings to the mixture. To save on essentially having to duplicate the Female/Male/etc entries in the database, they are referred to as female and male, rather than brother or sister. This is a bit different from the others as it provides 10 possible options to choose from. Each character should then be treated as their own NPC and have details generated for them if required.

# 1 3 (2 older Female & Female, 1 younger Female)
# 2 No siblings
# 3 Part of a multiple birth (6 – (Female,Male,Female,Female,Male,Female))
# 4 3 (3 older Other,Male,Other)
# 5 2 (2 older Female,Female)
# 6 Part of a multiple birth (5 – (Female,Female,Female,Male,Male))
# 7 2 (2 younger Unknowable,Female)
