FANTASY CITY GENERATOR

This is something I made for Santacore. Maybe you’ll see it there someday but in the meantime it may be handy.

 

Below are a series of tables  If the PCs are in a specific part of the city, simply locate the most appropriate table. Otherwise, roll randomly.

city

There are in 1d8 Wards in this unnamed city.

1          Artist’s Ward

2          Administration Center

3          Craftsmen Ward

4          Flesh Ward

5          Marketplace

6          Palace

7          Slums

8          Temple district

Once you have a found your ward, roll 1d20. If  you roll it once, you have a pre-generated character, or at least the sketch of one. But you can roll up to 4 more times to further customize. 20 characters in 8 different wards.

Of course few people stay in one place all day long so you roll on any table for any part of the city.  It’s just that the Wards  are where they are most likely to be found; where they reside during the day and where they sleep at night.

Player names are aimed to be fairly gender neutral but if something sounds female or male to your ears it probably is that.

For brevity’s and sanity’s sake, Stats are only listed when they are high or low enough to earn a modifier.

Of course some, perhaps many, of the traits may never be discovered. All NPCs are considered to be level 0 and human by default.
