These randomly generated images of people are amazingly impressive:

Motherboard gives a bit of backround for this project:
The website uses an implementation of machine learning known as Generative Adversarial Networks, or GANs. These programs “learn” from a large number of training inputs—say, real human faces—in order to produce new examples. Thispersondoesnotexist.com uses code previously released by Nvidia researchers on GitHub.

Something like this could perhaps be slightly useful for an NPC generator...

More about language models for text generation:
We’ve trained a large-scale unsupervised language model which generates coherent paragraphs of text, achieves state-of-the-art performance on many language modeling benchmarks, and performs rudimentary reading comprehension, machine translation, question answering, and summarization — all without task-specific training.

The sample outputs are impressive, to say the least.

A Fantasy Grounds monster generator Kickstarter with lower tiers for randomly generated monster catalogues:

TERRORFORMER is like a Digital Necronomicon* / Random Generator - that takes advantage of the tools and tables within Fantasy Grounds, a popular software program for Virtual Table Top - to produce unlimited named, statted and detailed Monsters for D&D5e and Pathfinder.

See how a modern neural network completes your text. Type a custom snippet or try one of the examples.

Something not yet published by Christopher Tolkien:
Legolas and Gimli advanced on the orcs, raising their weapons with a harrowing war cry.

The orcs stood in battle formation, their spears slashing toward the front of the line with such ferocity that the spears looked like flint.

In the midst of the attack, a sudden burst of magic came from the north, sending forth sparks of light. It was not just bolts of blue light, it was flames.

The orcs fell down in the midst of the battle in a panic. They had no time to run or even shout or charge toward them. They were in a desperate situation, their weapons had cut through their flesh and bones – the spears.

Gimli saw them and ran his hand through his beard to hide his face. "Agh…! Is the Lord in the north?"

"Do you think I am the only man who knows the truth?" Thoros asked. No one else answered.

A voice said, "I wish to speak with Thoros. I will make your oath a reality, and I will make your death a death to be remembered."

Gimli turned to look
There is also something to ensure that @JochenL can leave for vacation without worrying about decreased productivity in the project. :)

Another image generation site for those nightmare visions:
Simply keep selecting the most interesting image to discover totally new images. Infinitely new random 'children' are made from each image. Ganbreeder turns the simple act of exploration into creativity.

Shall we play a game?
Earlier this year, OpenAI, an A.I. startup once sponsored by Elon Musk, created a text-generating bot deemed too dangerous to ever release to the public. Called GPT-2, the algorithm was designed to generate text so humanlike that it could convincingly pass itself off as being written by a person. Feed it the start of a newspaper article, for instance, and it would dream up the rest, complete with imagined quotes. The results were a Turing Test tailor-made for the fake news-infused world of 2019.
Building on the predictive neural network framework of GPT-2, GPT Adventure promises to rewrite itself every time it’s played. It’s a procedurally generated game experience in which players can do whatever they want within the confines of a world controlled by the fugitive A.I.
