Random Generators

Run out of ideas for your latest novel or roleplaying game? Has your writing or artistic muse abandoned you? Does your creativity just need a kick in the pants? You've come to the right place - with the click of a button, new ideas are yours for the taking.

Tip: If you want to use a random generator on a computer with no Internet access, save the file to a portable drive. Right-click on the page it's on and click Save As/Save Page As, and choose Webpage, HTML Only. The document you saved will look a little odd when you open it, but it will still work.
