House Generator

Postby trukulo » Wed Mar 25, 2009 10:09 am

I've done a house generator online.

Hope you like it :)

Damnit, i can't post the url of the generator. Need more posts.

Example

The Mountains of the Moon

Liege: Jon Arryn, Lord of the Eyrie,Hand of the King, Warden of the East

The Mountains of the Moon spread through the eastern corner of Westeros, scratching the sky with their high peaks. Infested with savage clans of mountainmen, it is a wild place, scarcely under the control of its ord. One region shines brightest, however, and that’s the Vale of Arryn. Wrested from the old Mountain Kings of the First Men, the Vale of Arryn is now the seat of power for one of the purest Andal lines in Westeros and features the lands and holdings of House Arryn and those banners sworn to him. Houses sworn to House Arryn enjoy the benefits of the mountains, but there is little available land for new lords. Furthermore, the mountain clans cause endless trouble for the people living here.

Founded on: New (War of the Usurper)


0 Catastrophe

A result of catastrophe usually indicates a natural disaster, such as an outbreak of plague, blight, or drought, any of which can diminish your population and ability to control your lands. If catastrophe is your first historical event, it means your family may have gained their status through dubious or tragic means, perhaps replacing the previous lords who were wiped out during the catastrophe or were a lesser branch that rose in station as they inherited the holdings of their kin.

1 Treachery

Either you suffered the results of treachery or you were involved in committing a treacherous act. In either case, the historical event stains your family’s name.

2 Decline

Whether from a poor marriage, a downturn in trade, or a series of tragic losses in a conflict, your house entered a period of decline.

* Defense : 49
* Influence : 29
* Lands : 21
* Law : 7
* Population : 15
* Power : 25
* Wealth : 17

Defense

Excellent defenses, with man-made fortifications likely combined with defensible terrain features.

Influence

A small minor house. Examples include House Mormont and House Westerling.

Lands

A modest stretch of land or medium-size island, such as House Frey.

Law

Bandits, raiders, and other criminal bands are afoot in your lands, causing mischief and trouble.

Population

Small population but no single community larger than a small town.

Power

A modest force of soldiers, including some trained troops and at least one banner house.

Wealth

Poor. Your family has little excess. While they are able to sustain themselves and their holdings, they do not live in luxury.

Coat or Arms

Black (Sable) with lozenge in White/Silver (Argent) and a Lyon in Orange (Tawny)

I've made a few changes on tables, because i didn't like them.

So, be careful, it's not 100% like the book.

Different event table, different region assignation and changed madness.

Very cool. Any chance you could post what changes you made from the book? Also, have you thought about letting the user choose Region and Age, since you normally can by the book.

I can post the source code, if you want (so you can use it).

For the region... perhaps i can do it, i'll have a look.

For the changes, i change probabilities, because i think the default ones were... horrible.

How about a variation to create banner houses?

Ok, new version.

Now, this is the new url.

http://mercurio.homeip.net/rol/house.html

You can choose a house, and banned houses are automatic based on influence.

Also, i added a name generator.

What a pity don't have a Graphical Coat of Arms Generator (and don't ask me one, i don't know how to do it).

Here's an example of a generated house:

House of Stevyn, on the Westerlands.

With a banner house, Everdon.

The link isn't working, it's just a blank page. Did you remove it?

Just remember i use my own rules, it's not "by the book". Because i think the tables in tho book are not very well made.

But just minor variations.

By the way, don't forget to have a look at the coat of arms designer. It's fantastic.
