Strolens Generator Quickstart


Want to build a generator? Here's how!

Have an idea for a generator? Good. Lets go!

1.Go here and login with your normal Strolen account info. It is a separate server for now.

Ignore the Sorry! No Generators... Work in progress and all that :)

2.Go to “Your Generators” and click the New Generator button:

You should see the following:

Give it a name - Try to make it unique, short and focused as you can.

Add a description to it - freeform text for now.

Now we want to add items to our generator. We’ll make a simple list of 3 things. Say, weapons.

4. Click Add New Item and click in the grey area of the new item

5. Click in the edit window below.

Type Axe of Dooooom!

6. Repeat steps 4-5 twice more, with

Flaming Sword of Chaos


Stabby Dagger of Shadow.

Your generator should look like this.

Click Save and try it out.

Awesome, eh?

Maybe not.

Lets get a little more interesting and show how you can use variables.

First, we are going to create another generator - this time its a Widgit.

1. Create a new Generator as above, but check the Widget checkbox:

Add name - yourname_weapontype

3. Add items:






4. Create another new Generator, name - yourname_weapon_modifier

5. Check Widgit. Make sure Active is checked as well

6. Add items:




Maiming Small Animals

7. Now, lets go back to the original generator we made.

8. Delete items 2 and 3 by clicking the X button, leaving a single element.

9. Select the remaining item and click Add Variable.

Name it Weapon and find yourname_weapontype generator made in step 1.

10. Repeat and Name it Modifier and find yourname_weapon_modifer made in step 2

Now edit the item to say

{Weapon} of {Modifier}

Item should look like this:

11. Save it. Now you have an amazing weapon generator capable of 16 different outcomes.

Each item you add to this list could have different variables, pulling from different sources.

You are not limited to using your own generators to supply text to your generators - you can use any of the generators you can see. Results are dropped loose into your submission.

A generator result area can return plain text - like we have done so far, links, or even images -and can have all of these.

Next time, a more in-depth example, though I think you have enough to start.

Let me know if you have any questions!

Man-Eating Grapes!

       By: Murometz

A wild species, vinus homophagus, more akin to sea-grape rather than the terrestrial variety, is not a monster despite its fanciful name. The grapes, a deep purple color when in bloom, and oozing dewdrops of perspiration, like the most prized and delectable of drinking wine grapes, do however deserve their moniker. Wine made from this fruit, is deadly to most humanoids, as is the raw berry, if plucked and eaten from the vine. It is the unnatural chemical concoction found within the fruit’s tart skin, which gives the man-eating grape its name. The chemical stew found inside each berry, functions as a necrotic agent, the same as found in some species of venomous snakes. The grapes literally eat the victim from the inside out, via cell death, dissolving organs and flesh in quick succession.

The tribes of Pra-Oohk Crater, from the jungles of Ghlush are known to sell the fermented “wine” of this grape to merchants of distant lands. Sadly, the taste of the concoction is divine when first quaffed, and even worse, the man-eating grape wine will never detect as poisonous via mundane means, its horrid natures somehow masking all attempts. Luckily the man-eating grapes are extremely rare, and endemic to humid jungles.
