Generators for rituals and dooms, Germanic-sounding names and encounters in the forest...

WFRP Generator Guide
Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay (WFRP) has always used random tables. WFRP 4th Edition from Cubicle 7 starts this off with a roll for character race.
I've put together a list of generators you can use in your games. You might find the guide to Horror generators useful too.
Naming Those Characters
For the Empire start at Germanic and Old High German names from Fantasy Name Generators. For an in-depth source of Empire character and street names try the Book of Imperial Names PDF over at Winds of Chaos.
If that's not enough at Fantasy Name Generators there are name generators for Warhammer Races by army. If you can find a copy then the 2E Character Pack has great names for Elves, Dwarves, Halflings and Empire humans
Beyond Character Name
My next character will have a fear of darkness (Scotophobia)...maybe a motto of "Lead by our history, leading our future" and a doom of "High-born blood shalt spill thine own."
In the Wilderness
In Town and City
For a custom city map try the wonderful Medieval Fantasy City generator
Old World Taverns
For an ale or cider to remember try the Drink Generator
WFRP Tables in PDF format
Both from 2nd Edition, but these are worth a look. Tome of Corruption has lots of Chaos-related tables from mutations to chaos gifts. Renegade Crowns has many tables as part of building a campaign in the Border Princes.
In fact you can find many older WFRP 1st and 2nd Ed books in PDF format.
Rituals and Omens
Bits & Pieces
You can find a list of my generators for WFRP that is growing.
The WFRP Weapons list has options for producing random weapons including several options for just what that hand weapon is.
Winds of Chaos has a number of PDFs that feature random tables for weather, road conditions and imperial cuisine.
If you like the Generators Guide my Patreon has a monthly poll on what Guides to do next
I'll keep this guide updated so please suggest WFRP generators in the comments or on twitter to @DuncanThom
