Default Oops, I Did It Again: Random PC Generator

So there you are: waiting for the bus in the pouring rain after a long night of gaming during which you finally pushed your referee too far. In retrospect, the warning signs were there: shaking hands, a nervous tic at the corner of his eye, incoherent frothing rage every time a PC laughed off another 1d6 9mm round to the head. You knew he was tired of apparent PC immortality but you really didn't think he'd go as far as he did tonight. You never expected him to bribe Paul Mulcahy to stat up the RPC.

But it happened. Now you're cold, wet, slightly cranky, and trying to figure out what to roll up for your replacement character.

I'm here to help you.

Introducing the all*-new random Twilight: 2000 v2.2 player character generator. Select your preferences, click the button, and (assuming I debugged several thousand lines of code correctly) it will spew forth a complete player character, fully clothed and equipped and ready for post-nuclear adventuring. With at least 89,280 possible combinations, you'll never need to worry again about having a backup PC!

Great work. Please note this may not generate Britney Spears, even if that lady did once turn up in a campaign.

Thanks again for the inspiration work. I mean it. I have constructed many plots from random dots like these. It keeps me from repeating narrative patterns of my own to much.

I generated a designated marksman wearing Luxembourger jungle fatigues. Not sure the Luxembourgers ever made those...and she has volumes 1 & 2 of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Excellent!

As someone who is gluten free, I appreciate the consideration.

What a lovely thing you have made. Time to make some characters !

Thanks for all the kind words, gentlemen. I just posted some minor updates. Nothing major, just bug fixes and a few more noncombat role profiles.

She is, however, on the list of USO performers who may appear in my expanded encounter generator.

Remember buying a Chessex brick of 36d6 for Shadowrun games? Stuffer Shack remembers!

I had several bricks the Chessex mini D6s for Star Wars RPG, I think they were nominally for Warhammer, so I was well equipped for the random Shadowrun game. I still find those dice hidden at the bottom of boxes in my garage.

Enhancements soft-launched over the last few weeks:

Expanded list of backgrounds.

Expanded lists of specialties for several combat and noncombat roles.

Added character appearance and personality traits.

Re-balanced attribute point allocations (work in progress).

Enhanced language allocation: native languages now appear in the stat block alongside all other skills and duplicate languages should no longer occur.

Generator now checks minimum allocations for certain key skills to reduce the likelihood of complete uselessness.

Added optional retro boot sequence.
