Version (latest) Forge Installs GitHub downloads (latest)

A module for Foundry VTT. Allows you to use a rolltable as the Display Name for a token so each new token will get a random name. It can also roll random biographies for tokens when used with Better Rolltables.

Reborn Status

I picked this module up in December 2023 as it hadn't been updated in a while. I have it working for what I need for DnD5e. Anything else that doesn't work will be reviewd at as bug reports come in here on GitHub.

How to use it

First, grab your random name table and drag it into a Journal entry. That will give you some text that looks similar to @UUID[RollTable.OfTzIzGy7fyCgGz7]{Elf First Name}. Now, open the Actor and click Prototype Token. Paste your @UUID[RollTable... text into the Token Name. When you drag your Actor onto the map to create a new Token, its name will be randomized!

If you are working directly with a compendium, then the string will instead look like @UUID[Compendium.monks-enhanced-journal.person-names.RollTable.AQBywLCajYDmBTay]{Dwarf Last Name}.
