Simple NPC Generator) and another for Common Only (
Simple NPC Generator (co)).
There are other NPC Generators out there that offer much more robust features, including even creating an actor for you. My generator is not meant to compete with those. To me, those work great for pre-game use when you're creating more impactful NPCs
So why did I make this? Because I find that 95% of the time that I need a random NPC name/description is during gameplay. I need that info quickly. I don't have time to stop the game for several minutes while I set options to create an NPC actor. And for most of those NPCs, I don't really want/need an actor anyway. I just need a quick name and a vague description quickly so I can keep the game going. If the NPC becomes impactful, I can make a more "permanent" NPC after the session.
To be honest I just made this for my personal use. It's not fancy, there are few bells and whistles, but it gets the job done quickly and without a lot of fuss. However since several people have reached out asking for it, I decided a module is the simplest way to provide the macro and all the tables used.
Speaking of modules, you are probably like myself - way too many modules installed. If you'd like to, you may delete/disable the module after importing the macro and tables. Once those are imported into your game, they will remain. Of course you will have to check this Github repo to see if there are updates, but I do not expect there to be many.
The macro opens a dialog with options for several (not all) races/sexes. Here is a sample of how the macro works:
Quirks buttons are to generate a few more options in case you didn't like the ones generated with the name/race/sex.
