Event Generator

Following on from our Motto Generator and the Quick NPC Generator, here’s another little generator for you. This is the Event Generator and it’s perfect for worldbuilding and setting creation. If you want to quickly come up with names of famous and significant events that have happened in any given area, you can use this generator to come up with their names. Then you can build on those names, to create some interesting and flavourful events.

The generator is split into two parts. First decide what sort of event you are looking for, since there is four type: Conflict, Diplomacy, Culture, and Belief. Roll a d10 on any of these to see whether you got a War, a Pact, a Discovery or even a Festival. Then roll a d100 on the Names table to see what the people of your world gave this event. By the end of it, you can have the War of the Elders, the Pact of the Forest, the Discovery of the Usurpers, and the Festival of the Moon.
