Random Generators ~ Loads of Fun!

Today, I discovered a great website that has a ton of generators.  It's the Seventh Sanctum , and it has just about anything you might need in the way of a generator.  I've only tried out about three ( so far ), Weird Name Generator, Bookspinner, and Magic Items.

The generators can be set to generate a variable number anywhere from 1 to 10 for the books, and 5, 10, 15, or 20 for others.  I haven't tried them all, so keep in mind some may be different.

My favorite so far has been Bookspinner.  Here's one I had generated:

A Treatise of Invocation

This book is easily understandable thanks to incredibly well-done and helpful illustrations. The book's well-done nature allows one to easily find that it has little useful information. Though flawed, one can definitely see that the concepts in the book do show a lot of original thought.

Examining the book, one will find: Folded-down pages marking informative information A list of scolars in a recognizable, but foreign language can be found secreted in the binding.

The site also has information, and advice, as well as code for writing your own generators!  Plus, to top it all off, it has a list of other generator sites as well!

So to close this post I will include one of the three Super Ninjas that I had generated...

This pure kunoichi is short and has a wide-hipped build. Her hooded eyes are ash-gray. She has jade-colored hair worn in a style that resembles a flowing stream. Her outfits are odd. She uses an elegant form of martial arts that emphasizes headbutting. Her preferred weapon is a crossbow (which has holy powers). She is skilled in snowboarding, boating, and impersonation. She can read the psychic impressions off of objects.

I can think of nothing worse that getting elegantly headbutted by an oddly dressed ninja.  I should turn her into a mutated human for Mutant Futures, and have her team up with Ovadimp .

So if you've hit a creative dry spell, or just need a little creative boost, or an odd name, a strange book, or just want a bit of entertainment, Seventh Sanctum is the website to visit. 

Okay, here is one more for the road!

Evil Animal Minion Generator: Release the enormous shape-shifting chihuahuas that spew deadly parasites!

These chihuahua's sound just like something the Super head-butting Ninja and Ovadimp would face in the radioactive wastelands in Mutant Futures.  I love it when a plan comes together.
