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.
Disclaimer - several of these are generators I've created. I'm a fan of WFRP.
Names and More Names
For an in-depth source of Empire character and street names try the Book of Imperial Names PDF over at Winds of Chaos. For GMs in need of many names I have the WFRP Name List which gives many names by race and gender at once.
Beyond Character Name
Lastly, Moo-man has created a Windows-only NPC Creator (you'll need to click into a release and find the .exe file).
Encounters, Items and Taverns
If you want loot then this Treasure Generator has options for jewels, coins, clothes, weapons and documents. The WFRP Weapons list has options for producing random weapons including several options for just what that hand weapon is. Armour is covered with this generator, plus the occasional weapon
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.
Winds of Chaos has a number of PDFs that feature random tables for weather, road conditions and imperial cuisine.
Useful non-WFRP Generators
When in the forest you can set the scene with Forest Descriptions
For a custom city map try the wonderful Medieval Fantasy City generator
