The Feeling Wheel (with bonus Random Emotion chart!)
There's a lot of overlap between Psychology and tabletop games, and this wheel categorizes emotions in a way that I'd honestly never thought of. You could turn this pretty easily into a "random emotions" chart. Just take the chart and roll 1d6 if you want your basic emotions, or consult this longish chart I created if you're looking for a more subtle emotion for your randomly generated needs.
Create a Helm of Emotions and have the players be in-character consumed by a completely random emotion each and every morning!
Or possibly something you just thought of now that's probably twice as creative as what I thought. It's your game, probably. If it isn't, maybe it should be?
Anyways, here you are. Please enjoy.
