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

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.

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?

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

Hu's Iron Ball

       By: Murometz

Hu was an ambassador of the Seventh Emperor of the Reng Dynasty. Throughout his life he traveled across many miles and lands to entreaty with neighboring kingdoms and the semi-savages who dwelled amidst the Metal Mountains.

During one such diplomatic mission, Hu was gifted a small iron marble as a gesture, by a shaman of the Kiy-Kiy tribe. Little else is known of Hu, but that marble was lost and is now somewhere out there for someone to find.

A tiny, shiny sphere, the marble has several properties. First and foremost it is a strong magnet, considerably stronger than its size and density would indicate.

Secondly, if thrown or rolled upon the ground and the command word is spoken, the iron ball will magically enlarge to either the size of an ogres's head or to that of a great globe, twelve feet in diameter. The rolling ball of either size will continue to roll or fly at the same relative speed it was when launched as a marble, and can thus cause great damage to anything in its path. The magnetic power of the ball will also magnify when enlarged.

Legends claim that the ball has been tossed from besieged castles upon attacking foes and rolled at marching armies in ages past. At the end of such rolls, the larger size globe has been known to not only crush soldiers underfoot, but to also "collect" many dozens of metallic weapons and bits of armor unto itself, appearing as an armored sphere, with swords and spears sticking out from it in all directions.

Owning this powerful marble has its drawbacks. Anyone carrying it on their person, will experience the iron ball's insidious effects after some time. The owner feels no worse for wear, but after two month's time they will suddenly awaken one morning to find that their hair has fallen out completely, their teeth loosened like baby's teeth ready to drop, and their fingernails simply shriveled and sliding off the fingers and toes. Perhaps unbeknownst to the owner at first, the iron ball also renders an owner sterile or barren by this time.

Regular clerical healing will not reverse this horrible malady. Only finding and beseeching a shaman of the Kiy-Kiy tribe to heal the iron ball's effects with their particular brand of magic, will work.

Hu's Iron Ball should be handled carefully by players and gms.
