Dangit, I keep seeing these awesome things being generated, even by low numbers, and I keep wanting to know more about the specifics of the generator.

I know that most items appear only once, twice sometimes, thrice rarely, and Gengis Khan appears 24 times.
I know that it's used by finding results out of a string of numbers, or something like that; Yeah, LD2 says it was a random number generator, that you would tell it to pick digits to mean certain things. <-This is the part that intrigues me
And the original generator was eaten by a virus.

((Also, while looking up this information, I found my crazy post looking up which is most conductive: Copper, salt water, Moll asses, tap water, pure water; turns out they are in that order. Wow.))

Well, I can afford to reveal some things about the generator. Namely, how it's laid out now, because I ditched the numberstring thing a while back. To quote a PM I sent to a fellow who was interested in setting up his own generator:

Yeah, subtables are a thing. Essentially, the generator has twelve different categories for item types, which are:

Melee weapons
Ranged weapons
Off-handers (Shields and the like)
Armor
Headgear (Separate from armor due to the sheer variety of hats that exist)
Wizard stuff (Staves, wands, and crystal balls)
Transportation
Instruments
Living things (Also includes undead things, and robots)
Foodstuff and furniture
Miscellaneous (My 'junk' category, filled with everything that doesn't fit anywhere else)
Wolin's choice (I wander through my house and pick something. Sometimes at random, sometimes because I think it would be fitting/funny, but usually because I realize that I haven't yet added anything like it to the generator yet. A large amount of new entries happen this way, and it's actually responsible for the entire foodstuff and furniture section being added.)

All of those categories are split into however many subcategories as they need to be. And if you haven't guessed by now, these categories really just make templates. The finer details on an item are generally just made up on the spot to give a hint as to what modifiers it has. Speaking of which, modifiers! Those are the real meat of the generator, because they're the things that really make the game what it is. I've had mine in one gigantic metamorphica-esque blob for a while now, but I'm considering moving them to a subtable system like I did with item types in order to save space and make it easier for me to navigate.

I figure I can reveal that much without the game losing too much of its mystery.

"Have you been there this whole time without saying anything? Just make sure you stick close to me so you don't get left behind." Beirus remarks to the invisible thing before turning his attention to Toboggan and Billy.

"Aww, he likes you. How adorable. At least he didn't flash you."

Prepare for dungeon circumvention.

I have a feeling that this is a great item... I would never learn how to use properly. Or... Hm...

Shout "Activate" or something similar a few times. Then try to win by concentrating on desirable effect.

Science is always important. But it needs more flaming cats. Can't we build bridge-based catapults and fling flaming cats at the dust and goo?

It's time for the ATHATH Death Counter to increase once more in celebration for the end of the world.

Ever so slightly.))

That's how this sort of thing goes. Don't worry, phase 3 or 4 should happen soon enough.

So you are going for the 'Singular win' option?
Or you could become a boss for other players to challenge.
