Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay - Generators Guide

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

Naming things is hard, but 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.

For a broader range, the WFRP Name Generator has everything from Border Princes through Halfling to Kislev. 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

Warhammer names at Fantasy Name Generators

Beyond Character Name

To add life to your WFRP character try the phobias generator at EN World. Or maybe a distinctive motto from a noble family, cult or town might do the trick.

Humans will need a Character Doom.

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

When in the forest you can set the scene with Forest Descriptions. For encounters there is a list from Reddit and I have a WFRP Road Encounter table

In Town and City

For a custom city map try the wonderful Medieval Fantasy City generator

Chaotic Shiny has great generators for Merchants, Crowds, Holidays and Pit Fight Arenas.

Old World Taverns

Taverns are important in many medieval settings, and the you can find Fantasy Inns, Tavern Generators and Tavern Descriptions aplenty

For an ale or cider to remember try the Drink Generator

Drinks Generator

Rituals and Omens

Strange beliefs are common in the Old World. Luckily we have superstitions for those villagers, prophecies for the fortune tellers and for the priests

Rituals might involve local temples, the village elders or a dark cult. There are rituals to perform and also dark rituals
