Strolens Generator Quickstart

By:

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:

Hit Refresh on your browser to make sure the page is properly synced.

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

Add a description to it .

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

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

5. Click in the edit window below and type Axe of Dooooom!

6. Repeat steps 4-5 twice more, with Flaming Sword of Chaos and 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.' which is our name for partial generators that yield small results (generally) you use to build up more complex generators.

1. Create a New Generator as above, but check the Widget checkbox and Active checkboxes.

Add name - valadaar_weapontype, for example. This helps you find them among other generators.

3. Add items:

Sword

Dagger

Axe

Club

Save

4. Create another new Generator, name - valadaar_weapon_modifier

5. Add items:

Chaos

Doom

Anarchy

Maiming Small Animals

6. Now, lets go back to the original generator we made. Delete items 2 and 3 by clicking the X button, leaving a single element.

8. Select the remaining item and click Add Variable. Name it "Weapon" and find valadaar_weapontype wigit made in step 1.

9. Click Add Variable again, this time with name "Modifier" and link it to valadaar_weapon_modifer made in step 2

10. Now edit the item to say {Weapon} of {Modifier} including the curly brackets - these tell the Generator that these are variable and will contain the results of a roll from the Wigits.

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!

Mesnoi

       By: Murometz

The food that eats you back.

Creatures of nightmare, the thankfully rare Mesnoi have unique form and attributes. Only one Mesnoi at a time will ever be "encountered".

In appearance, a Mesnoi resembles a walnut-sized chunk of freshly-roasted red meat from some uncertain yet familiar, edible animal. The insidious creature camouflages itself quite appropriately whenever it can, by slowly making its way amidst feast tables and trays of roasted meats.

Once eaten by the unsuspecting, the Mesnoi sinks down to the stomach, reforming if chewed, and begins to lap up the gastric fluids, digestive juices, and bile that it craves, like a sponge.

The Mesnoi carrier will experience mild to severe stomach pains during this time.

After a few hours of this (this is the only time that the Mesnoi can be purged with magic, or other mundane means), the Mesnoi transforms into its true form inside its victim, that of a miniature, once more walnut-sized, pot-bellied, devil-horned, snake-tailed imp. This horrid little creature then begins to chew and eat its way out of the victim from the inside out with its tiny, razor-sharp teeth, like a rat forced to do so via torture.

The victim almost always dies a slow, agonizing death. That much is certain. The devilish imp then exits its victim and begins its seventy two hour existence of mischief and malevolence, until it once more turns back into a hunk of roasted meat with the movement capabilities of a snail.
