D20x8(+9) Lovecraftian Entities That Didn’t Make The Cut

Why do some generators take hours to finish and others months? Truly a question only Great Cthulhu could answer. Alternative opening line: Blogger's interface is itself a Lovecraftian entity.




Automatic generator generator from here: https://paperelemental.blogspot.com/p/list-to-html-generator.html

For some reason the generator doesn’t work from the main page, only when this post is opened specifically, so do that as it’s much faster than rolling manually.

D20Its origin

15is the lifeless arctic wastes.
16is the unseen side of the moon.
17is a meteor from interstellar space.
18is the far, fallen future of humanity.
19is a rift in space-time.
20cannot be comprehended by mortal minds.
D20Beware it,
1for it hungers for dreaming brains.
2for it cannot be killed permanently by mortal means.
3for the sorcerers it seems to serve are in fact controlled by it.
4for it is the vanguard of a coming horde.
5for its touch inflicts a gruesome infection.
6for it can slip through other dimensions and appear to teleport.
7for the mere glimpse of its visage can paralyze mortals with fear.
8for it shrugs off terrestrial magic.
9for the form you see is only the one your mind can process, and its true shape is more terrible yet.
10for if it is not stopped soon it will metamorphose into an even more awful form.
11for it can shoot sweet laser beams.
12for its presence brings unnatural gigantism and proliferation to weeds and pests.
13for it can channel the magics of its alien patron.
14for it can disguise itself as a human and dominate mortal minds.
15for it can birth packs of lesser servitors in moments.
16for the longer it remains here the more the world around it will come to resemble its origin.
17for those it kills rise in paradoxical, rampaging half-life.
18for it can induce phantasmagoric visions of its home.
19for any wound you inflict on it will be reflected on your own body.
20for it can see you spread across your whole life, from birth to death.

  1. The paperelemental generator-generator probably has the same issue mine used to have, if there are multiple generators on the same page (like the front page, since several are loaded at once) then they will conflict. Mine doesn't have that issue! (I'll leave it as an exercise for the reader to figure out why)

  2. I figured out the problem! Both my and Angus' generators use a function named 'r', but the two functions do slightly different things.

    So whenever both kinds of generator are present on a page, they conflict.

    I went back to my code and renamed the function 'r' to 'rD', so now our generators should be able to coexist peacefully.

    1. So glad my two favourite random generator facilitators were able to figure this out
