Random Tsolyáni Family Structure

I've posted the initial family structure rules before, but not the Build a Clan Workshop. Enjoy.

Random Tsolyáni Family Structure


Family Creation

Start by rolling a d6, d8, d10, and a d12.

Parents: d10-1

Siblings: d12-2
Add +2, if 4 parents or more.

Spouses: (optional)
d8
Spouses
1-4
Not married
5-6
1
7
2 (+1 on Child roll)
8
3 (+2 on Child roll)

-2 if person is 20 or less
+1 if person is 31 or more.
+1 if person is female
+1 if person lives in a rural area

Concubines: (optional)
Roll again on the Spouse Table without modifiers for the number of concubines.

Children: d6-3
-1 if person is 20 or less
+1 if person is 31 or more

Each roll is an open-ended roll. If the maximum roll is rolled, roll the same die again, apply the same modifiers, and add the result to the total. For instance, if rolling parents, if you roll a 10 (-1 = 9), roll d10-1 again and add to 9.   

Build Your Own Clan House for Fun and Profit

Using these rules you can generate an entire clanhouse.

Clan Elders

Small
d4
d6+2
Medium
d6
d8+2
Large
d8
d12+2
Huge
d12
d12+4

Urban Clanhouse: add 2 to result

Then take the Clan Elders through family creation and two more generations down.

1st generation: For each elder, get siblings, spouses, and children. For each sibling, get spouses and children.
2nd generation: Then for each child, get spouses and children.
3rd generation: Then for each child, get spouses and children.

The brothers of fathers are clan-fathers. The sisters of mothers are clan-mothers. The wives of clan-fathers are clan-mothers. The husbands of clan-mothers are clan-fathers. The sisters of father are clan-aunts, and the brothers of mother are clan-uncles. The wives of clan-uncles are clan-aunts. The husbands of clan-aunts are clan-uncles. The children of clan-mothers and clan-fathers are siblings. The children of clan-aunts and clan-uncles are clan-cousins.
