This single-page document is a companion of sorts to my Random Name Tables. It includes tables numbered from 1 to 20 to generate physical characteristics for the people of the Flanaess: skin tone, eye color, hair texture, and hair color, all based closely on Gary's original descriptions where possible. One table for each trait covers all the races and racial mixtures of the Flanaess, through the simple expedient of rolling different dice for different races. For example, pure Flan roll 1d8 for skin tone, yielding a result from 1 ("dark brown") to 8 ("golden brown"). Pure Suel, on the other hand, roll 1d4+16 for skin tone, yielding a result from 17 ("ruddy") to 20 ("albino"). It's that simple! Flesh out a PC or NPC from anywhere in the Flanaess in seconds.
"The fear of death, its risk each time, is one of the most stimulating parts of the game. It therefore behooves the referee to include as many mystifying and dangerous areas as is consistent with a reasonable chance for survival." - J. Eric Holmes
