This PHP application draws from many sources. Basically, it is a replication of the model that TableSmith uses. A random generator and tables that link together. After I found out about TableSmith, I set about converting some of the older name templates in Names 2.01 (by Michael Harvey) into .tab format, as well as collecting some freely available TableSmith .tab files off the net, and additionally pulled some various random lists from RPG websites scattered across the web.
