This easy to use tool will help create an outline of a villain (or any other character for that matter) for RPG games, but it could just as easily be used for other purposes if you see fit.
The tool consists of a bunch of fields, including one for a name, stats, characteristics, and two fields for additional information. By clicking on the 'Generate villain' button, all the characteristics will be randomized, but the name, stats and info fields will be left empty so you can more easily adjust them to your specific RPG setting. All the randomized values can also be adjusted if you prefer different ones, like a different race type, for example.
There are 10 sets of save buttons to save 10 characters at a time. This is done locally in the browser, so you can close it, come back another time and still load your previous work assuming you didn't use incognito mode or cleared all your browser data. This also means using a different browser means 10 more save slots as they don't carry from one browser to another.
If you prefer a physical copy, simply using the printing option in your browser (Ctrl + P on PC, Cmd + P on Mac) will allow you to print all the information in the character fields without any of the site extras. It can be a bit finicky at times depending on the browser and device you're using though. While both portrait and landscape printing should work, on some devices only one or the other may work well enough.
Alternatively, you could always take a screenshot to keep an image locally on your computer and perhaps edit it further by adding a character image or similar elements. If you wish to do this, on both windows and mac you can take a screenshot of just part of the screen as follows:
- Windows: Open the snipping tool (comes with windows vista, 7, 8, and 10) and drag the crosshair across the the area you wish to capture, you can now save the image with the same tool. If you have an older version you'll have to press 'alt' and 'prt src', and then paste the image in paint or another program to edit out the rest of the screen.
- Mac: Press 'command' + 'shift' + '4' and then drag the crosshair across the area you wish to capture. Once you release the mouse button the image will automatically be saved to a folder, which is usually the desktop or default image folder.
- Mobile devices: It really depends on the brand and type of device, so you'll probably have to Google it for your specific device.
I will expand this tool to include statistics for heroes, regular NPCs and a whole bunch more in the future, so stay tuned.
