Background Noise

By Erik A. Dewey

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Instantly generate a background for a fantasy character.

Breathe life into your role-playing or fantasy character.

Background Noise allows you to randomly generate a background for any fantasy character. By walking through a series of tables, you will determine:

* Where the character grew up
* Who he lived with
* What his parents did
* How many siblings he had
* Any family legacy
* Events in the character's childhood
* Events in the character's adult life
* The most significant personality traits of the character
* and much much more...

With 40 tables and hundreds of options, there are millions of possible combinations, making sure that no two character's backgrounds are exactly alike.

Great for role-players or authors.

So add some Background Noise to your character, they'll thank you for it.

Customer Reviews

Great idea, could use some refinement.

This is a very handy little tool, but would greatly benefit from the ability to lock in certain aspects of a character, or to choose certain aspects yourself. Also, the ability to name and save characters would be useful as well. Still, it's a fun app, and can get that imagination going!

I love it, but...

I have been looking for something like this for years. It creates background information for RPG characters. We have used books for this and often it has led to great scenarios.
The app cannot save or print, and there are a couple of spots where it does not finish up (like when you are to roll again because the characters is 50 years older). The best solution is to buy the PDF as well ($7) to see the actual tables. It is worth it, though. At least until version 2 comes out.
