NEW YORK I am UP YER...

OK - trying again with this post, because I felt that no-one really noticed it last time around...

FREE STUFF!

Here's a web-technology-powered NPC Generator:

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/11380358/NPCgen/NPCGenerator.zip

It generates names (from a list of a few hundred or so at present, divided into generic 'nations' and races), an epithet, a profession (organised by rarity), and a bunch of traits (from a list of a couple of thousand).

Download it to your device of choice (let it create a 'data' folder there), open up 'NPCgen.html' in a browser, and go for it. It ought to work in Chrome, Firefox, IE11, Edge and on phones and tablets.

Because of browser security limitations, all the data is stored in one big JS file. If you want to add names, traits, etc, you can edit it with any text editor, but be careful not to break the formatting.

Comments welcome!

I'm afraid I have no idea of the source for this... but it does appear to be the inspiration for our ol' pal the Intellect Devourer (well, with added tails and antennae):

There may be an inherent problem in the 'wishes just cost money' solution, in that it's only the first wish that costs gold. The first one being 'I wish for 10,000gp to immediately appear in my treasure vault'.

In my campaign, Wishes are believed to be granted by demonic Powers, and therefore are Not To Be Trusted. Any Wish gabbled on-the-fly is asking for trouble, and the Powers will attempt to pervert them anyway.

ARRRGH. I have ordered pizza from Papa John's and it's so far taken 90 minutes and still isn't here. Helpfully the Feedback form on their site doesn't work. Brilliant. #papajohns #unacceptable

I think we can all find ourselves here: http://chocolate-ocelot.blogspot.co.uk/2013/09/module-g4-mock-tudor-coaching-inn-of.html

Except me, of course. I am nothing like any of the described.

I'm not at GenCon, but I'd hate you to miss out.

So could everyone pretend I posted a load of blurry photos of fat beardy people in t-shirts sitting at tables?
