  1. 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?
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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! Unnoficiial TechPriest Littany Generator v1: http://www.mediafire.com/view/?aasobt4tsblxysn
  5. 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: "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! [A libation should be offered.] [Abjure the Silica Animus] [Abjure the Unliving] [bow once] [bow thrice] [Cast forth thy Censer, such that the sacred smoke pleases the Machine Spirit.] [castigate thou unbeliever] [expell thy noxious fumes] [Genuflect while contemplating the beauty of the Logis Key] [if the mounting be cold then pronounce litany of the fourth rune as it is more appropriate.] [if the mounting be hot say the litany of the third rune] [if the second rune is not good, a third rune may be struck in a manner like unto the first.

Its tip should be anointed with the oil of engineering using the proper incantation when the auspices are correct.] [strike the Rune of Activation.] [strike the second rune upon the [device] casing employing the chosen screw-driver.
