Use Inspiration Pad Pro to generate all sorts of random things for your tabletop role-playing game campaigns. Inspiration Pad Pro is much more than just a simple random name generator. With Inspiration Pad Pro, you can generate random names, town information, encounters, treasures - you name it!
Authors, game designers, and anyone else who might need to be inspired by random content will also find Inspiration Pad Pro useful.
Inspiration Pad Pro uses special files called 'generators' to tell it how to generate information for you. You can create your own, modify existing generators, or just use the ones included with the program as-is. Because of this, it's easy to customize generators to the needs of your own specific campaign or fictional world.

- Bandit Loot

Creating and Editing Generators
To edit the existing generators, locate the /InspirationPadPro directory, which gets created on the first run of the app. In that directory you will see a number of files that end with a file extension of ".ipt". These files can be edited with any text editor. To create a new random generator, use a text editor to create a generator file with a ".ipt" extension, and save it in that directory.
A PDF guide to creating generators is available here: http://www.nbos.com/nox/index.php?action=1001&id=537 . The PDF is also included in the desktop edition, which can be downloaded from our website (http://www.nbos.com).
