Easily the biggest update to WordSalad so far, this version adds random character / NPC generation!
Now you can get slightly ridiculous procedurally generated characters from 27 different species, including: humans, dwarfs, fishfolk, minotaurs, and tigerkin.
Each species has its own data / method for generating interesting names (except for half-elves and half-orcs, who either get an elf, orc, or human name) and every random characters get a few bits of descriptive information including their likes and dislikes.
You can use these characters as jumping-off points for stories or adventures, emergency filler characters for your table top campaign, or whatever else you like.
