They remind me slightly of Changelings in their looks. *imagines what a town of theirs would be like-houses that one flew up to, preventing other races from burgling their homes, for example* What is their equivalent of Christmas? Go to Comment

The caste system is well thought out. Like you describe, they do seem a very cold-hearted race.

You mentioned it's common for Blackwings to keep slaves. Do they enslave fellow Blackwings, or other races, or both? Go to Comment

Good race. I like how you explore their "crow-ness" in both physical and societal ways. They seem like proper bird-people; cruel, domineering, utilitarian, slavers, etc...

The Dark Crystal inspiration shines through.

I would just add that the text is slightly choppy in places and there are a few peculiar phrasings. Other than that good stuff!

This section ends on a comma...was there more?

Hmm, I had text around that at one point.

They make _terrible_ slaves, requiring nearly constant supervision - it is why undesirables are either banished or slain. Some fall into deadly depression if somehow knocked below their station.

You know, I think substance abuse might be a problem with these fellows as well.

They are flightless (tweaked the description to make this more clear), so they use walls and guards to keep from being burgled.

As for Christmas, that is an excellent question. They are as a whole a very secular race.

I think they may celebrate the 'Coming of Order', when the Skycrowned, their God of Dominance, took control of the squawking multitudes and enforced the new, rigid society.

Could we build a converter to automate this? Go to Comment

It /would/ be easier to use the generator creation area to create a 30. It's pretty much always easier to move from a very precise, delimited format to a freeform one. The reverse is...slightly more difficult. Go to Comment

If there was a consistent means to tell which section is which, certainly.

It is that part which made this so tutorial complex - there is no formal definition of an entry in a 30.

Some have extended descriptions above the listing - of course that could be treated as a separate element and merged with the summary/description manually.

different format for numbers none, 1. , 1.), 1-, etc.

Some bold the entries, some do not. Some are not consistent with bolding (such as myself) - see http://strolen.com/viewing/30_Legendary_AntidotesCures

To make this work well, we should have a fixed interface for List submissions, where you create the elements one by one. This does not lend itself to, for example, my workflow using external docs and pasting it in.

It would almost be easier to use the Generator creation screen to create a 30 :).

I think you need to delete the old one and replace it with the file.

Val, quick question: I've recently uploaded a new 30+ Chinese name generator. I'm currently working to expand it into 101 and here comes my problem. So far I can only see an edit button which then requires me to copy and paste in items one by one. Is there a function that allows me to override the existing generator by uploading a new text file to replace the old or is the only option for me to delete the old one and replace it with the expanded version?
