Use this random character generator system
to create your PC. Here
is an updated version of Drone's system that includes the new kits:
I'll restate the directions for using this system:
First randomly generate a 4 digit number at this this site. To roll a four digit number put in the values for the generator thusly and click the Generate button.
This four digit number determines Gender, Race, Class and Sub-class or Multi-class, according to the system's color coded chart (chart updated here).
Next, randomly generate a three digit number with the values adjusted like this, with the results again determined according to the system's chart.
The three digit number determines Alignment, Abilities, and Voice Set.
- If there is no Sub-class or Multi-class ignore the fourth digit of the four digit number.
- A 9 for the third digit of the four digit number results in a Sorcerer, Monk, or Barbarian, two of which had no subclasses when Drone devised this system, but now we have the new sub-class kits for the Sorcerer and Monk... Anyway, you can either pick what you like from among them, or you use the dice roller linked below and roll a 1d6 with numbers 1-6 assigned to Sorcerer, Dragon Born Sorcerer, Monk, Sun Soul Monk, Dark Moon Monk, and Barbarian, respectively.
- If your Race or Class restricts an alignment re-roll via a custom die via the dice roller tool linked below or just round up. You can also use the pure dice rolling method (here) if further rolls are needed to resolve the conflict.
- The Voice Set you roll is isn't a requirement for the no-reload speed game contest. Obviously, if what you roll is a really poor fit, or another one is perfect, etc., feel free to use whichever voice you like.
You can use this thread
for reference as to race and alignment restrictions for various classes.
We have also come up with a dice rolling method of character generation based on Drone's concept. You can view the chart for it here
. The advantage of this system is that it gives a more even chance of drawing the classes and subclasses that are squeezed into Drone's original system and my update to it (Sorcerer and Monk and their kits, and Barbarian). (This character generation system may also be used for the no-reload speed game challenge.)
In the same spirit, why not use the WotC Character Name Generator
Then use this alphabetical list of NPCs
1 - Ajantis
2 - Alora
3 - (Mystery NPC)

and the WotC dice roller
with a 1d29 (at the bottom row set the "Die" column box to 29 and "Nbr" column box to 1") to determine your party.
What do you come up with?
And what are your thoughts about how you would approach the game with such a party?
