Random Trait Table


In the Star Frontiersman Issue #03 Bill Logan featured a random trait table from the article "Fleshing out your Character".

Also included in the article was the following example:
For example, if you roll a 25 and a 98 then your character smells of exotic spices, perhaps from the food of his homeland or from some favored cologne or perfume, and is world-weary, perhaps because he’s traveled a great deal or hates layovers. He sighs and rolls his eyes at the prospect of long trips. This helps build an image of a character who’s exotic and has been everywhere, perhaps has friends or enemies on some worlds.


Below I have created a random trait generator. The possibilities are a single trait, dual traits and triple traits.
