So I had an Explorator who wanted to roleplay his character with some choice quotes from the entire 40K RPG line for Techpriest flavor.  These quotes are suprisingly few and far between.  There's like a dozen of them… so I made some up and pulled a few others from random places that sounded tech-priesty… To this end,  I've scoured the web and can find no more.  I have also broken those I have found into suitably small chunks to be recombinated.  Here is the list I have generated with (most) duplicates removed. 

Let's generate some verses for a Madlib style Techpriest Littany!  Roll a d10 for each digit in the list until you have a littany of sufficient length to please the machine spirits! Actions in [] brackets are intended to be pantomimed for greater hilarity! Added super-secret-sauce If you "invent" new entries!  I have a Google-spreadsheet to produce the combined result too, if anyone is interested.

Example output [To be read in tech-cant]:

"There is no certainty in flesh but death. Strike the first rune upon the [device] casing employing the chosen wrench. Omnissiah bless these vats, let not the Ruinous powers or unfaithful machine spirit sully even the lowliest allele. There is no certainty in flesh but death. "If the sacred tone of approval is given after the panel lights under your left hand, bless the key once with your lips, and insert into the sacred slot lit by holy lumen glow." So proclaimeth St. Geordi!"

For each line in the littany, select one from the following list:

  1. "If  the  sacred  tone  of  approval  is  given  after  the  panel  lights  under  your  left  hand,  bless  the  key  once  with  your  lips,  and  insert  into  the  sacred  slot  lit  by  holy  lumen  glow." So proclaimeth St. Geordi!

This is pretty good. You think you could post that spreadsheet? Popular format seems to be .xls, but it's your opinion. I would, though. enjoy raw text, copying down your list excludes the numbers, so it's kind of hard to use. Nice to see, though.

Update: Cooked up the XLS.  I've been stuck on an ipad for a few days and downloading anything from google docs is a pain!

Cool stuff! I checked out your xls and I notice a couple of oddities (besides the obvious ;-).:

- Row 245,246 and 248 return an #name error. Most likely cause you use an non-exitsting function add()

- The ranges you set in column A are not all the same. they vary between 250 and 231 .Is this on purpose?

- column 13 / N contains words (Argent, Black Shadow, etc) which you're not using anywhere

Also, why on earth do you work with some many indirect() functions? Most stuff is static so it appears to be redundant. AFAI can see its only required for the random stuff so:

=IF((INDIRECT(ADDRESS(1;2))=1); INDIRECT(ADDRESS(INDIRECT(ADDRESS(1;1));12));" ")

can also be written as:

=IF(B1=1;INDIRECT(ADDRESS(A1;12));"")

 

Here an attempt from me, with some clean up of the code, removing errors and some extras

 

edit: by the way, the universal laws are:

The mysteries

01. Life is directed motion.
02. The spirit is the spark of life.
03. Sentience is the ability to learn the value of knowledge.
04. Intellect is the understanding of knowledge.
05. Sentience is the basest form of Intellect.
06. Understanding is the True Path to Comprehension.
07. Comprehension is the key to all things.
08. The Omnissiah knows all, comprehends all.
The Warnings
09. The alien mechanism is a perversion of the True Path.
10. The soul is the conscience of sentience.
11. A soul can be bestowed only by the Omnissiah.
12. The Soulless sentience (i.e. the Necrons) is the enemy of all life.
13. The knowledge of the ancients stands beyond question.
14. The Machine Spirit guards the knowledge of the Ancients.
15. Flesh is fallible, but ritual honours the Machine Spirit.
16. To break with ritual is to break with faith.

 

ive added those to the list including the proclammations.

it was originally written on an ipad at a game session break using Google Docs spreadsheet functions, which worked.  I had no idea there was no ADD function. :(  Those functions concatenated five or six random entries from the code-word list to generate tech sounding pass-phrases, and each additional entry used the add() function to throw a little variance between the five duplicate entries. (I wanted random passphrases to pop up more regularly, but I didn't want them to be completely the same.). It got used that session, and worked great fluff wise.. so I didn't bother refining any more.  I just wanted to share it for other players.

The random numbers in A have varying indexes because they refer to the two Columns of entries.  The first 6 are for the lines of the Littany.  The last 5 or so are for the next column over, which has a different maximum index.  At the time I made the code for the list, there was only 100 or so code-words.  Now there's quite a bit more, but still not an exact match for the number of littany verses.

Column N was originally going to be a "Machine Name" generator.  The ritualized name of some machine spirit or something.  I dunno. It does nothing at the moment.

I'm a noob and I was whipping the excel functions up in an hour or so.. so my coding isn't the greatest.  Go figure. :) On looking at your analysis, I can see I didn't need the Indirect call testing for the randomized length of the littany, and could have just tested for field B1.  I tried it before when it was a google doc, but I must have been on drugs or something then.  Only way I could get it to test was going insane.  It was tech-corruption that made me do it, I swear!

Thanks for providing the content of the Universal Laws and taking a stab at rationalizing the functions.

The random numbers in A have varying indexes because they refer to the two Columns of entries.  The first 6 are for the lines of the Littany.  The last 5 or so are for the next column over, which has a different maximum index.  At the time I made the code for the list, there was only 100 or so code-words.  Now there's quite a bit more, but still not an exact match for the number of littany verses.

 

 

 

I wasn't entirely clear about this, I meant that the varience takes place in the first 6 entries (so all the same column). I had hoped that mentionin 231 would be enough as there are only 149 key phrase entries in column N.

 

Im impressed though that you created this on an ipad. That would have driven me bonkers. Anyway is the excel sheet behind my link clear to you or does it need explanation?

I believe I see the functional differences between our two versions, and yours definately lays-out the process better.  Thank you for rationalizing my bolognese functions.   Instead of indirect functions, you use lookups, which I hadnt even heard of, your version is also easier to see what everything I whipped up does.

You can do Everything in Excel, and use Excel for Everything!

Now, from a fluff standpoint, this generator isn't currently capable of actually generating a "littany".  It just pulls from random table of quotes I yoinked from nowhere and everywhere.  If we could split this table up into various categories, it might be possible to make a script generator to make these littanies make some sort of sense.. but that would be work…

On another note. does anyone have any additional verses that they don't see in the list yet?  Does anyone have any verses they can come up with from scratch?

i can do the scripting if you do the categorizing. Also google 'winds of chaos' and go to the download section, there you find Inn Generator I made a loooong time ago that also has a generator based on categories. Check it out.
