How to use the app
Random tables are a great tool to provide a framework for improvisation.
During game prep or in-game, if you have a choice of:
"you meet a person in the city, who are they?"
the second gives you many more hooks to help you create a memorable character to interact with
Or, if you decide your party encounters a humanoid in the woods...
... would you have come up with an asthmatic half-orc bandit, laying a trap?
If you're interested in creating generators, or want to run Adventuresmith on the desktop, there
