    Random Book Title Generator

    I couldn't find something like this that I liked so I decided to make my own. An easy module that you can load and randomly generate book titles for those players that love to find libraries.Let me know what you think, and if you have any ideas of things to add shoot them my way.

    Note: some of these titles will not work. The basic set up is: Title, Adjective, Subject, Title. To make things more interesting I gave the Titles and Adjectives a chance of not generating anything. I felt it gives the titles more variability but because of this some will have two titles, or in some cases only the Subject will be rolled.

    EDIT: Updated to get rid of the script error cause some of the tables numbering was off. Replaced non-SRD entries, with SRD friendly ones.

    Pretty cool. I can definitely see the use for when players enter a library and want to browse. You can quickly come up with a whole library full of random titles.

    @Davinci522 - thanks for uploading, I had a quick look. But now with your update, the download is no longer available.

    One request - any chance of making it generic, and not just for the 5E ruleset please? In the definition.xml file, change the whole <ruleset> ... </ruleset> section to be <ruleset>Any</ruleset>

    There was some non-OGL stuff in there so I requested he edit those then switch the ruleset to Any. New version incoming.

    Awesome, looking forward to playing with this. I've had a need more than once for a book name.

    Feeling ambitious? I don't know if their are others out there, but I've been dreaming about various name generators... Tried to get my son to put one together, but he never got around to it.

    Such things as taverns, NPC names (by race and country/flavor), drinks, rivers, etc? I'm sure you could think of a thousand things it could help.

    Yes Talyn was helping me make it all legal. It should all be good and usable for any ruleset. I have uploaded this newest fixed version in the original post. Do I need to upload it in a comment or should that work?

    There are a few already out there (Onomatology for names, and Content Generator makes some good taverns.) I wouldn't mind trying it, and maybe talking to their authors to incorporate them all in one place.

    AFAIK Book Titles are not (and can not) be covered by copyright OR the OGL.
