This generator makes colors that aren’t or should be, are mysterious or otherworldly. Inspired by the Neathbow of Fallen London as well as things like Octarine in Discworld, it’s a way to make colors that aren’t your standard spectrum – or lurk in between the colors we know.
A few examples:
Anihe – A deep blueish-green. Under light of this color mirrors show falsehoods.
Celvoweur – The penultimate orange. Under light of this color people have religious visions.
Cong – The purple of the early morning sky.
Brot – The green of half-forgotten grasslands.
Ilva – The iridescent red of curiosity.
Serneo – The green of leaves in legends.
Cheppan – The purple of bravery and of the early morning sky that you fear seeing.
Thue – A flamboyant orange. Under light of this color wounds heal.
Cephutem – The yellow of loyalty and of half-forgotten sunlight.
Auguahe – The muted yellow of loyalty.
The generator needs to be expanded – the names and basic shades are mostly done, but the descriptions and symbolism and effects need a lot more work. So go on, take a look, leave feedback!
Well this has been awhile. It’s been crazy time with illness, changing to a new contract, roommate starting a new job, social events, more illness, and general chaos. Honestly, I feel like I need to take some time off.
So I just sent out a newsletter update, but let’s cover where I am right now
The Way With Worlds Book 2 is in final edits. If all goes well I format and run a first print next weekend. If not . . . uh well it doesn’t happen. I think it’ll be out end of March or early April with no other interruptions.
Those Way With Worlds Minibooks are coming out great! I’m working on the fourth (yes, they’re small and I’ve been doing them for awhile). I think you’ll enjoy them.
And Merry Post-Christmas everyone! I hope you’re doing well. Me, I’ve got over a week off and am enjoying it – which means plenty of time to do projects. And by that I probably mean play videogames, but still.
So let’s catch up!
Way With Worlds Book 2 – I have finished my latest edits and am getting feedback in from pre-readers. Very positive on this one. Still looking to be end of March. I will need reviewers too . . .
Way With Worlds Followup – I’ve been bouncing this idea around here and there, but there are followup minibooks to Way With Worlds. Those are in the works. Those probably drop in April, over time. There’s more in my newsletters.
The Next Generator – Taking a break from Food, the next generator is a Magical Girl Team generator! The current alpha version produces teams like “Beguiling Rose Angels,” “Rune Ladies” and “Seraphim Of Energy” which seems to be on track!
Thats about it for me – enjoying the time off and relaxing. Of course that means writing . . .
Yes, it’s done! The Pizza Generator is complete and ready for your culinary randomization!
This one was another generator where I went in for really deep analysis, and I think it paid off. Pizzas are a complex business, and I found specific “pizza patterns” that guided the generator’s design. There were also more than I expected, which got a bit complicated.
With this I need a bit of a break from food generators. They’re fun, but surprisingly complex, and I think because I love to cook I tend to get into them really deep. I’m not done yet – I at least want to do a candy bar generator – but I’m gonna need a rest.
As for other generators, well I’ve got plans . . .
So I’m back to work on the pizza generator, using all that data I collected before things got nutty. This one is coming along well, but the data structures are surprisingly complex, so it’s going to take a week or two more to finish depending on my schedule. However the results . . . well they speak for themselves!
A pizza with broccoli, black olives, zucchini, mango, pickled ginger, egg, clams, bacon, and linguica.
A pizza with butter chicken, linguica, salami, and ground beef, topped with fontina.
A pizza with chicken, bacon, and roasted fennel, topped with paneer.
A pizza with garbanzo beans, red pepper, kimchi, pickled garlic, apple, and egg.
A pizza with ground beef and jalapenos, topped with asiago and havarti.
A pizza with ham and butter chicken, topped with paneer.
A pizza with hot dogs and cilantro.
A pizza with mango, roasted fennel, canadian bacon, prosiccuto, ham, linguica, and pepperoni.
A pizza with pickled ginger, kimchi, shrimp, pulled pork, butter chicken, and steak.
A pizza with roasted fennel, steak, clams, bacon, sausage, and hot dogs.
A pizza with salami, butter chicken, meatballs, tuna, and short rib meat, topped with mozzarella and brown sauce.
A pizza with salami, egg, pepperoni, and shrimp.
A pizza with short rib meat, garlic, and parsley.
A pizza with spinach, shredded carrots, apple, pickled ginger, and argula.
A pizza with yellow onion, argula, canadian bacon, clams, tuna, and sausage.
It’s a bit meat-centric right now (results in the end will split between vegetarian and meat results), but looking good and properly crazy-yet-possible.
So strap on, your culinary dreams will continue!
After this I may take a break from food generators – they’re surprisingly challenging. But I still want to do more, just maybe not one after another.
