Procedural Generation Tools for Tabletop Role-playing Games

This website hosts tools intended to make life easier for players of tabletop RPGs. It's a living website, and will continue to receive new tools on a semiregular basis.

My name is Ben Overmyer. I'm the developer behind this site and the tools it presents. Besides working on these tools, I also act as the art director for Silver Gryphon Games.
