Random D&D Character Generator

By Ramanan Sivaranjan, 2012—

Introduction

This is a small web application for generating random D&D characters. The default is to create Basic (Moldvay) D&D characters, but it can generate a variety of characters based on various systems similar to Basic D&D: Original D&D, Holmes, etc.

Supported Systems

You can also generate a list of NPCs and roll 3d6 in order or 4d6 drop the lowest.

Getting it Running

  1. Install Flask (pip install flask).
  2. Run python create.py

How It Works

This is a Flask web application. create.py is the flask app, which does all the routing. characterclass.py contains data and tables about various D&D systems and that sort of thing. character.py is where the magic happens. All the generators live here. They are assembled by inheriting from more generic chunks of code, mixing in features as needed. I'm still undecided if this is the best way to do this or not. The project has sort of grown organically over time, and I'm not sure I made the best choices. It has allowed me to make several tweaked generators for friends for their particular house-ruled games, which has been nice.

The generate for the fifth edition characters works slightly differently. It takes a runs an incomplete character through a series of processors that add more and more information to the character. I'm not sure this scheme works that well either.
