About the Random Family Tree Generator

The Random Family Tree Generator is a product of NaNoWriMo 2013, during which I needed to populate several dwarf clans, fast. I found a few versions of a generator for random medieval family trees (of descendants of a matriarch/patriarch pair) online, to which I added a bunch of features that I needed:

I didn’t actually need the detailed instructions, but as the thing was getting a bit complex I expanded them accordingly. The source code is available at github, along with more gory details. I also shared a little sausage in the blog.

A bug involving overpopulation of the clan dropdowns on switching species has been fixed.
