AUTHOR: Jim Vassilakos (email@example.com)
FUNCTION: Random Stuff Generator
OPERATING SYSTEM: IBM (MS-DOS) (first install DOSBox)

COMMENTS: Generates results from random tables which the user can create. This version comes with tables for random alien generation, fantasy realm generation, old-style AD&D dungeon generation, random dockside encounters, fantasy character background generation, and more. I'm Currently looking for contributors who'd like to expand Rand's capabilities by constructing more tables.
Tony De Lyall ported Rand to 32-bit Windows using FreeBasic, creating Rand for Windows
