Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay - Generators GuideBy Duncan Thomson on
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
Beyond Character Name
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
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
Rituals and Omens
I'll keep this guide updated so please suggest WFRP generators in the comments or on twitter to @DuncanThom
