Iron Setting Generators

These are numbered lists of various RPG campaign ideas, campaign books, or genres. One would roll on the list three times and then create a setting out of the results that were created. The results are used for multi-verse characters, off beat settings and as a creative exercise. The term 'Iron' is used because the resulting setting is in a way similar to an Iron Man Triathlon (Probably because there's three different things thrown in together to make one combined whole).
