Quick NPC Generator

Since our Motto Generator was so popular, we thought we’d give you a few more randomisation tools that you can use in your games. Next up is a Quick NPC Generator made by James from Stormforge West. Just like the Motto Generator, you’ll eventually see this being used in a future game, and that will most likely be Grim Gears, so keep an eye on James’ Skies of Himinil setting over on World Anvil.

To create an NPC, simply roll a d100 for each of the three tables below and see what sort of NPC they’ve made.

Personality Quirk

The personality quirk of an NPC is something noticeable that will make the NPC memorable and appear to have more depth. These quirks are a combination of personality traits, moods, and circumstances, which may be determined with context of the other tables. This is how the NPC acts at the given moment, and it may or may not actually represent their character if you wish to make them more in depth.

Goal

This is the NPCs goal at the moment. If you stop someone on the street or sitting at a table, they are either going somewhere for a reason or waiting for something. Sometimes, this goal might not fit with the current situation. In these cases, the goal is what is on the person’s mind.
