generators

Writing Resources, I guess

So when I’m writing I sometimes need prompts or sometimes I just want to write random shit, so I will use generators. This is just a few that I use and like;

Family Tree, Relationship Generators

  • Battletech Family Tree Generator - Generates 2/3 generations, can choose options such as name types (real life/fantasy/ethnic fusion/place/gang).
  • Demarco - Generates a family trees based on info provided, P/Matriarchs, Years born, married and died, and current imput year. Also includes a Type of “race” choice: Human: Medieval, Scottish, Eqyptian or Modern or Dwarf (Fantasy race). All generations up to imput current date are automatically open.
  • Ja.Partridgez - Family tree generator, similar to Demarco but without the Type option and the generations are not automatically opened, you click a button to see it. 
  • Gayahithwen- Family Tree generator that follows the Male line, it’s a Harry Potter one, so you can choose Hogwarts houses. Options include; Family name or randomly chosen English or Irish surname, Year of birth of family founder, or choices between eras 800-1100, 1100-1400, 1400-1700 or 1700-2000. You can have Hogwarts houses chosen randomly or choose percentages. Also you can choose options to suggest partners names and to include year of death.
  • Rangen Family Generator-  doesn’t so much generate a family tree as members and their names and ages, Parents, Siblings, Children, Grandparents etc. Includes Simple (Just name and age) or Detail (whether they get along with main character, personality) Options.
  • Rangen Pregnancy Generator - generates a birth/s, whether it’s a boy/girl/unknown, birth weight, date of birth, whether it resembles the mother/father/relative/family friend, whether the baby/ies is/are heathy/weak etc. Generates Single Births, Multiples, No Conception.

Cities, Towns, Kingdoms

  • CrystalBallSoft - Fantasy City You choose the name, size (from Thorp up to Metropolis), whether it’s by the sea, or a river, whether it has military, if it has gates. You can generate Wards, and Professions. Choose major race (Human, Hafling, Elf, Dwarf, Gnome, Half Elf, Half Orc or Other) and Society (Isolated, Mixed or Integrated). It’ll also generate GP Limit, Imports and Exports, what the city is famous for and infamous for, no. of wards, and professions.
  • Mathemagician - You choose the name, size (Thorp-Metro) and population percentages (Human, Dwarf, Elf, the usual). It gives you Power Center, Alignment, Population, GP Limit, Community Wealth, You can view all the Militia/Town Guard/Aristocrats/Experts etc members. Names/Race/Gender/Level/Profession/Personality. As well as a list and opening hours of all Blacksmiths, Scroll and Potion shops, Jewelry Store, General Stores, and Taverns. You click and it’ll also give you the  Names/Race/Gender/Level/Profession/Personality of employees  for each of said options. Tavern option also gives hour by hour list of currently working employees, patrons and entertainment as well as a full menu. 
  • Rangen City Generator - This gives you single word descriptions of things like Settlement type (e.g Metropolis), Size (e.g Large), Cost of Living (e.g Expensive). Etc. Good for general outlines, and basic stuff. 
  • Lucid Phoenix Kingdom Population - Give you Civilisation vs Wilderness size and %. Number of castles and castle ruins, Population density, Total Population, Population breakdown (No. Rural, Urban or Isolated). Also now gives Urban Population Centres (big cities) with demographics of population size and businesses.

Worlds and Solar Systems

  • Donjon Fractal World Generator - Gives you a basic map/image of a world. You choose Map Projection (Square, Spherical, Mercator etc) Map Palette (Atlas, Olsson etc), % Water, % Ice, Image Height, Iterations and Rotation.
  • Donjon Fantasy World Generator - First, the servers for this are busy a lot of the time but it’s worth it. Basically does the same as  above but different options. Map Style (Atlas or Antique), Font (Black Castle, Tengwar Others etc.), % Water % Ice, Geography (Yes or No), Rivers ( Yes, No or Many) Cities and Castles (Yes, No or Many), show Hex Grid and/or Labels.
  • Donjon SciFi World Generator - You choose things such as World Name, Map Projection (Square, Mercator etc.), Map Palette (Atlas, Barren, Antique etc.), %Water, % Ice, Image Height, Iterations and Rotation. It gives you things like; Basic Image, Physics (Type, Radius, Surface Area, Land Area, Mass, Density, Composition (Iron, Oxygen etc). Gravimetry (Gravity m/s2, (# x Earth), Escape Velocity km/s), Rotation (Period and Axis Tilt), Hydrosphere (Water and Ice %), Atmosphere (Type, Pressure in kPa, # x Earth, Composition), Climate (Type, Min Temp, Avg Temp and Max Temp in Kelvin and Celsius), Biosphere (Chemistry, Lifeforms), Civilisation (Type, Population, Tech Level). If you us the Imperial you’re out of luck.
  • Donjon Star System Generator - Star Name, Companion Star (Random, None, Close or Distant), Planets (Random, None, Few, Several, Many). You can force a system to include a terrestrial world. It’ll generate things like the Star/s and it’s data (Type, Radius, Mass, Temperature and Luminosity), any terrestrial worlds, rock planets, jovian planets, ice or neptunian planets and their data also. If it includes a terrestrial planet you can further click on that and get more data like that of the SciFi World Generator above.
  • Donjon SWd6 System Generator - Made for use with Star Wars d6 RPG, generates a basic system, and information basically like that from SciFi World Generator. 
  • Donjon Traveller System Generator - Again, generates a basic system, includes whether there is a naval base, starport or scout base and tech levels on a terrestrial planet.

This is just a very small portion of generators I use for Fantasy and SciFi stories. If you want or need other generators feel free to message me, I probably have several. Also let me know if you want me to make another for purely SciFi/Food/Drink/Pretty much anything.

For Writers

Just a reminder that there is a section of COBG set up just for Writers. :-)

Writing Tips - Hundreds of writing tips by me and from all over the web. And index of resources to help you get that book, script, short story, etc done!

The Story Idea Bank - Want to write, but have no idea on what you should write? Here’s a list of ideas to start you on the path! :-) (I am still accepting ideas and prompts. So, send them my way if you have any)

48-Hour Writing Challenge - Every few months, I like to hold a weeklong writing challenge where we write a certain amount of words over 48-hours. In May. 2015, it was 5k. Here are the rules and the resources of the challenge. It includes tips, the best writing applications, name generators and so much more,.

From Our Followers - If you wrote a story during one of my writing challenges, you can submit a link and a synopsis and I’ll list it on the blog! (Still accepting submissions)

I did it again, made another masterpost. What can I say? I love lists. This time its generators, enjoy!

Need more characters? Try these:

And of course these characters will need names:

Not enough words in the dictionary for you? Just invent more:

You’ve probably got your story all plotted out, but what about subplots and twists? Try these on for size:

This is a bit random, but I’ve had a few occasions where I’ve needed a little poetry, in teen character’s journal’s etc. So might be useful:

Of course if you are stuck for ideas, these prompt generators are a good place to get started:

These are unlikely to give you the title of your next novel, but what about books within it? Or movies and TV shows, these are pretty fun:

I like these generators because they are visual. I always have a good idea of what I want my world to look like, but mapping it out, and figuring the distances between cities can be a struggle.

Of course the places in your world need names:

Of course characters will get sick. And they’ll need to be treated:

These fantastic sites have a wide variety of useful generators:

And of course where would we be without miscellaneous generators? A bit of fun but possibly useful to some:

I’m a cycling enthusiast, and when theweather is bad I use a bicycle trainer in my apartment. But riding to nowhere has always felt pointless. This got me thinking about how I could use my pedaling to produce electricity. By driving a generator with the movement of the back wheel, I figured I could run a lamp or charge my phone. Realistically, this wouldn’t do much to cut my utility bills (or carbon emissions), but it would give my indoor riding a sense of purpose. Besides, I was curious to see what the project involved. 

To skip ahead a bit, I ended up rigging my bike to a 24-volt, 200-watt electric motor, which I modified slightly to generate electricity instead of doing mechanical work. I used the motor (now, operationally, a generator) to charge a 12-volt lead–acid battery. And, finally, I added an inverter to convert the battery’s DC current into an AC current, which is what’s needed to power anything you’d normally plug into a wall outlet, and to store power so you can use appliances even when not pedaling.

Characters: Flaws and Quirks

Most every character has them. Most every character needs them. Whether it’s Protagonist Number One or side character #7, flaws and quirks make a flat character three dimensional and more interesting. (it’s not the only thing and it doesn’t replace character growth and character development, but hey, every little bit helps).

Flaw:
      1)     a mark, fault, or other imperfection that mars a substance or object.

Flaws can make or break a character. Too much and we could hate them, too little and we can’t relate to them. Ask yourself this: Is this flaw actually a flaw? AKA, does it go away when the big guns come out and doesn’t actually hinder the character in any way? How do they affect your character and the situations they find themselves in? How does it affect their relationship with other characters? Is this something that causes problems? Is it something your character can grow from? 

Adding Character Flaws
When Flaws Go Too Far: Avoiding Unlikable Characters

Writing Flawed Characters

Make Flaws Work On More Than One Level

Four Types Of Flaws

  • Being selfish: Everything is about me, even when it’s not. I put myself first above everything else.
  • Always a pessimist: Nothing every goes my way and the worst always happens to me.
  • Entitlement: I deserve the very best of everything and nothing less. Everything I want, I deserve.
  • Anger/volatility: Overly emotional. Takes everything to heart. Everyone is out to get them.
  • Eager to please: Can’t say no. Always willing to help even at the cost of themselves.
  • Unreliability: Always late. Never keeps promises, etc.
  • Compulsive liar: Unable to consistently tell the truth
  • Blunt: Always speaks their mind. Unprompted and without tact.
  • Addict: Alcohol. Drugs. Gambling. etc.
  • Disloyalty: Untrusting and unfaithful.
  • Cruel: Mean in actions and words without thought to feelings. 
  • Greedy: Hoarder of money, things, affection, and time.
  • Gullible: Willing to believe anything and everything without proof.
  • Incompetent: Unable to do any task, no matter the training or difficulty.
  • Stubborn: My way or the highway.
  • Perfectionist: Everything must be the way I want it at all times.
  • Nosy: Eavesdropper. Sticks their nose where it doesn’t belong. Too invested in others business.
  • Laziness: Unwilling to do anything. Sloth. No desire to complete tasks.
  • Arrogance: Self importance.

Quirk:
      1)     a peculiar behavioral habit.

Different Types Of Character Quirks
The Quintessence Of Quirks

Character Quirks Generator

Personality Generator (includes quirks)

Character Quirks

Quirks are fun because they can give you insight to your character. It can be done subtly, or not, and in some cases, it can actually be useful in the plot. Quirks, like flaws, expand into so many more things than I can write about here. Create one! Or seven! Think about how your character is and works and find one that shows more about themselves. Use these as a jumping off point to get your creative juices flowing.
