Animal Generator

Animal Generator

Watermarked PDF

This is a flexible animal generator that is meant to aid or take the place of a Gamemaster (GM) for answering questions or finding the clues, information, or describing animals. A chart optimized for 1d12 but with results for 2D6, 1D20, 3D6, and 1d100 systems is included. It makes it a versatile description generating engine.

This system is meant to give keywords, that when put together help to generate animals either real, mythical, fictional, or made at that moment. The keywords are meant to help trigger thoughtful and inspirational ideas. It's not meant to cover supernatural or alien features or powers.

Included are 11 categories: movement, social behavior, food, group size, offense, defense, reproduction, life expectancy, abilities, size, and nest/den. Each of these have 12 (one has 24) results to total 144 results in the entire chart.

This system works well for adding random ideas into story writing, solo gaming, or to aid a GM in creating descriptions of earth-like animals, creatures, or even mutations. It may even be used in addition to an existing stat-block to re-skin it into something fresh and new.

This product is similar to the Fact Generator. It is intended to be a paid upgrade to work with the Fact Generator, Description Generator, Outdoor Setting Generator, Indoor Setting Generator, and Character Generator or be used separate from the PWYW Fact Generator to add one or more adjectives for descriptive location details.

3 pages: It's first page is the image shown on the cover thumbnail. the second page is the instructions and example, and the third page is the chart turned longways 144 results.

This differs from the fact generator in that the results focus on description rather than on sensory and process data and is focused on animal features. There is a small overlap of some terms and concepts. This tool is more specific for animals. 

Download the Fact Generator to use as a preview of this chart. I use the same chart with different results listed.

Use Fact Generator as a preview, since they are similar. It however has a 3rd page with the table turned longways.

Product Information
File Size:
0.75 MB
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
