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.

Robust backgrounds!


Dead simple app that gets the job done. Instantly turns a blank slate into a living, breathing character.

Could be great

David Gallaher

There are several dreadful typos in this program. The lack of a customizable interface also hurts. Right now, this program isn't worth the money.

Works just like it says

Skeptic Steve

Easy to follow straight-forward app. A helpful tool for gamers and writers alike.
