Interdimensional Voyages Character Generator

This is an HTML version of the character generator for the discord game I've been running. It could be seen as a version 2 of this generator. (Based on Spwack's Die Trying character generator. Olm and Trilobite names are from Veins of the Earth). Items have their ingredients in parentheses according to these crafting rules.

October Update

Hey folks. For the last few months it has been a struggle to properly document and record my projects on this blog... so here's an attempt to do so!

-Over the course of the quarantine I ran a weird scifi westmarches game over Discord (with some absolutely wonderful folks) called Interdimensional Voyages, which was partially automated via a Discord Bot. We've finished what I'm calling "Season 1", and "Season 2" will ideally start back up when I have more time and energy. More posts on this to follow.

-Max Cantor of Weird and Wonderful Worlds recently interviewed me! We cover topics like emerging trends in RPGs, automation of games, and ADD and mental health! (On this topic, I am considering writing posts on how my ADD and mental health has affected my participation in the TTRPG scene.)

-I'm working on a new project whose size and scope are swiftly ballooning, for better or for worse. Here's the mind map of the current rendition:

It's a multiplayer cooperative game about founding a settlement in a dark fantasy/horror world (then going on adventures to keep it alive), with high (dwarf fortress-esque) levels of procedural generation, that will be fully automated through a discord bot.

That's about everything for now, more detailed posts on individual topics to follow.

Wishing you all the best,
