A downloadable tool for Windows and Linux

A free dungeons and dragons random character generator that I made roughly two years ago!

It's inspired by roguelikes and recommended to be used on one-off adventures, when you don't feel inspired to create a character from scratch, or for inspiration. Just have each player choose one of the three generated characters every time you hit "Randomize"-

It's intended to be used when everyone is gathered in the same place before the first session, with empty character sheets to copy their results to, or using screenshare when rolling- but maybe one re-roll is fine if the results seems a bit too low! (:

How to use it:
To get it working, just download, boot it up, and hit "Randomize"- 3 characters should pop right up for you to copy into your character sheet.

I managed to recover an older backup of this project, so maybe sometime in the far future I'll fix it up a bit- earlier if anyone requests it. In the meantime, I'm working on my current project, Netherguild.

I genuinely hope at least someone will find some use for this generator!

Be careful and never split the party, 


Let me know if you had fun using it! I love hearing feedback, even if you had a horrible time and everyone happen to generate characters with crazy good or crazy bad stats C:

Since players get to pick one character out of three characters which means their stats will usually be higher than average, I recommend DM's boost the encounter difficulty up a bit, or just roll for stats and cherrypick what you use from the generated sheets.
