Excel Space Hulk Mission Generator from Ark of Lost Souls

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

 

Since I didn't see one, I threw together a quick excel sheet that will randomly generate a space hulk mission as per the rules from Ark of Lost Souls, which is excellent by the way.

 

In the spirit of driving sales of these fantastic books, this tool only handles the rolling for you it does not explain what each result is, you need the module for that.

 

Hope it helps someone!

That's pretty cool. I tried to use it but it seems to have everything rolled and I am unsure how to get it to be randomized again. I don't have Arc of Lost Souls and probably will have it this month though. Space Hulks are one of my favorite settings. I love running the dungeon crawl. I have used Space Hulks in a game once but I would really like to see what the book has. I support local game stores so I have to go down and order it probably. I'll have it with the month though. Glad I have a wife that doesn't mind my $100 a month addiction to gaming.

Hi Mindforge,

 

You need to make sure that you Enable Editing when you open it, and then you edit the two green fields.  You can hit F9 as usual to reroll the sheet.

It makes more sense when you have the book ;)

I hope this isn't a violation of FFG rules, but here is the TOC for the Ark of Lost Souls if that helps your purchase.  I'm very happy with it.  The adventure fully integrates the Space Hulk Generator which is quite cool.

Also, a very helpful tool for creating hulk layouts is to either buy space hulk (if you can find/afford it) or google for Space Hulk Tileset, a program that lets you create spacehulks maps.

Frankly since GW decided to make the release of SH limited and crazy expensive, I think using the program is probably the best bet for a normal fan who just wants to make some hulks for use with 40k RPG.
