Book Details Generator

Generate an overview description for fiction, non-fiction and spell books!

“Knowledge is power”
Sir Francis Bacon
Religious Meditations, Of Heresies, 1597

A book is a useful tool for certain spell casters. It is essential for scholars and sages. Plus, for those who can read, a source of entertainment and pleasure.

This book details generator is for those times your a character finds a tome that interests them, or your players want to know what books are contained in the library they are raiding are worth anything. From the cover, to the nature of the pages and even suggestions for topics that it might cover.

Something to note:
The term book is used in place of tome, treatise, pamphlet etc. to save on space and provide consistency.

This is a converted, non-OGL version of my previous title, "Book Generator". If you have that, approximately 90% of the contents of that are in this, with OGL content removed and the layout tweaked. Of course, I am not stopping you from getting another copy, simply posting this so people know what they are getting.
