I've been busy gaming and wrestling with the depression demon -- and not updating here at all.  Bad Jae... I actually have a lot of thoughts I might want to share, but I never seem to get around to it.

Nor am I sharing much of those thoughts today -- just a wonderful tool I stumbled across (thanks to friend Reimer) that I think is invaluable both as a GM and as a player.

The Quick Character Generator comes up with randomized character concepts, and is part of a larger site of entertaining and useful generators -- Seventh Sanctum.  Cleverly (and appropriately) subtitled "Notions Ex Machina", it contains a variety of idea generators.

I frequently start characters with not much more than a one sentence description, and I love having something unusual to work with.  The one thing I hate is falling into a rut -- and I will, if left to my own devices.  There are certain archetypes I return to time after time, and something like this can help me put a different spin on the same old thing.

What goes for me as a player goes triple when GMing.  I love this site!  (I also love his slick PHP code...)

Sympathies on the depression. I know what it's like.
