 `cl-pcg` is a [permuted congruential generator][pcg] implementation in pure
 Common Lisp.
 
+Permuted congruential generators are seedable, small, fast,
+fairly-hard-to-predict random number generators.  They can be useful for things
+like games.  They can also be advanced and rewound efficiently.

 PCGs are **not** cryptographically secure.  If you need that, look elsewhere.
