Creating Generators from 30s


Got a 30? Want a Generator? Read on!

1. Start your text editor of choice.

2. Copy your 30 from strolens into the text editor.

3. Add a separator character between each element, such as *.

4. Save the file

5. Go to Your Generators, click Upload Generator File

6. Select the file and put * as the delimiter.

7. Click the upload button.

Bingo! A 30 is now a generator.

As a stylistic note, remove the number from the start of each element.

Could we build a converter to automate this?

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 :).

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.

Update: Edit -removed somewhat overcomplicated method.

The Forest of Flesh

       By: Kid Cannibal

The party has found the source of the strange creatures roaming the countryside. The rift in this reality glows with a silver hue, rippling with the wind but never moving. They step through and are immediately assaulted with the scent of rotting meat, some have to muster all their strength not to vomit. Strange cries similar to the beasts the party had faced before can be heard in the distance. Looking around, they see they are in a forest of grey and red rather than the normal brown and green. The trees are sticky to the touch and writhe, perhaps to get away or perhaps as a warning.

The deeper the party goes, the more the forest seems to slither and move underfoot. The cries get closer and more numerous. Creatures lurk in the shadows, all the same color of their surroundings. Whatever the party came in here for, they had better do it fast.

The forest of flesh is waking up, and it is so very hungry.
