Generator Revisited – Technobabble
No new generator or resource this week, so thought I would re-visit an older generator once again – Technobabble.
With my upcoming STA campaign soon to officially start, it seems appropriate to revisit this. This particular generator was one of my favorites to do. So much so I took the original version, which had three d100 tables and added a further 2 d100 expanded options.
To give you an idea of how many possible outcomes this can generate I’ll break it down:
- 3 x d100 tables
- 100 x 100 x 100 possible combinations
- 1,000,000 (One Million Possible Combinations)
This version builds on the Standard Edition and expands it by not only giving you technobabble problems but a possible solution as well.
Starting off with the numbers above (3x d100 = 1,000,000 combinations)
- 2 x d100 combinations (5 in total)
- 100 x 100 x 100 x 100 x 100 possibilities
- 10,000,000,000 = 10 Billion possible combinations
I’ll say that again…TEN…..BILLION possible outputs.
Granted, some will make a lot more sense than others, but with TEN BILLION possible outputs some will, of course, be better than others. Something else to bear in mind is that what is good for one person will be weird and unusable for another.
