Into the Odd character generator

Click here to see this character!
Into the Odd (by Chris McDowall) is a game that doesn't really need a character generator. It takes less than a minute to create a character with equipment and all.

But since I needed a new project (and really like the system), I made one anyway: http://odd.pushingcows.se

It will generate a new character each time the page is reloaded.

Things that differ from the character generation in the book:

  • Doesn't use the starter package table. Instead, randomized items from the table (but at least two weapons)
  • Name tables are snatched from here and here

At the bottom of the character creation, I included a random image to spur the imagination of the player and/or referee. Or maybe it will just irritate people, I don't know. The images are all in the public domain and snatched from here.

It should be fairly usable on those smart phones as well.

Yeah, and you can click/tap on your attributes to perform a saving throw. Probably not useful but you never know.

Use to the permalink to save your character (e.g. use the generated link).
