Faction Generator Table
For today's quick entry, allow me to share this faction generator that I initially created for a Mad Max styled apocalyptic setting. It could really be used for any number of settings to provide quick inspiration for a group or nationality to include in your campaign.
ROLL A D8 TO DETERMINE FACTION TYPE
1-2 Civilized: A nation, a village, a citizen's group.
3-4 Barbaric: Savages, marauders, vandals.
5 Religious: A church, cultists, theocracy.
6 Cultural: Based around a cultural tradition like a sport, an occupation, or a sacred animal.
7 Militaristic: Army, militia, peace corps.
8 Criminal: Pirates, gangsters, thieves guild.
ROLL A D6 TO DETERMINE FACTION'S DEGREE OF SETTLEMENT
1 Settled: Fixed to a specific point of origin, like a city or headquarters.
2 Nomadic: Travelling around the world, unbound to a single location.
3 Fringe: On the outskirts of society, or an underground organization.
4 Unknown: A faction that is secretive and unknown to most of the world.
5 Extinct: The remnants of a faction that has since fallen to destruction or the ravages of time.
6 Scattered: A group that is found in various areas, dispersed and disconnected.
