In preparation for the upcoming release of ETU (which you can still back on Kickstarter if you're quick), I decided to throw together a simple random NPC generator to help populate the campus.

You can access it here: University NPC Generator

It references Edges and Hindrances from the Horror Companion and Savagepedia, but I'll update it to use those in ETU as soon as I get it.

Based on some suggestions from Clint, some of the NPCs now have hispanic names. I've absolutely no idea what the percentage would normally be, but for now there's a 20% chance of the character having both a hispanic forename and surname, and if not there's still a 5% chance of them having a hispanic forename or surname.

In addition, the students are classified as Freshman, Sophomore, Junior or Senior depending on their highest academic Knowledge (although they're still created as Novice characters). Knowledges like "Occult", "Girls" and "Football" aren't counted, as I'm assuming you can't actually Major in those subjects.
