I have created a phone-friendly animalfolk picker for Dale of Merchants: The Guild of Extraordinary Traders, Dale of Merchants 2: The Era of Trade Masters, and A new animalfolk deck for Dale of Merchants: Systematic Eurasian Beavers. Enjoy!

Does it work through Random.org? What's the source of ramdomness?

No, I'd never heard of it before you mentioned it.

It just uses the pseudo-random built into the language to shuffle the cards. We're not doing anything secure or to do with cryptography — we're just shuffling some cards — and the engine shuffles them much better than I ever could by hand. Right from the start, I created a unit test to verify sufficient randomization of the cards for my purposes, and it has passed the test ever since I wrote the code to fulfill it.

Good to learn about random.org for when I do need something more "noisy", though!
