Some More Horsemen of the Apocalypse

Inspired by discussion on the GLOG server. Special thanks to Everythings and LichesgetStitches.

Git along little dogies, it's your misfortune and none of my own:

Tables:

Behold! A[colour] horse!<br>The name of him who sat on it was [name].<br>He who sat on it held [item].<br>It was granted to the one who sat on it [power].<br>I heard [speaker] [ominous quote].<br>And all [follow] followed with him.

{item}
a rusted scythe
a barbed spear
a pair of shears
a glaring owl
a blaring megaphone
a rabid pit bull
a roaring chainsaw
a gun firing wildly
a globe
a set of compasses
a wicked mace
an two-headed axe
a tattered banner
an infant by its ankle
a cracked mirror
a leaden crown
an empty cup
a grinning skull
a wriggling sack
a bloodied stone

{power}
swiftness to cross the whole of the Earth
some of the last words of history
mastery over many legions
knowledge of every evil
sight to reveal all things hidden and kept dear
to ruin good things
authority over a swathe of the earth
strength to defeat any army

{speaker}
the [number] living creature say
a voice in the midst cry out
the angel of the LORD announce
the head of the slain beast declare
the very stones rumble out
as if in my own thoughts:
all sleepers shriek
the doves call
the chorus on high sing
the splitting sky shout in a voice like thunder:

{ominous quote}
"Come"
"Descend"
"Fall"
"Flee, and know the trampling of his brothers"
"It's happening"
"Your days are numbered. All days are numbered. Few now remain"
"Be afraid"
"The time for mercy is past"
"Start praying"
"Is this Biblically-accurate enough for you?"
"Sorry atheists"
"Be gay and do crime"

the rising waters

storms
the deep state
the empire
the weeping ones
the gathering darkness
the self-appointed inquisitors
the killing machines
the living dead
the unforgiven
the meaningless cacophonies
the rulers of the darkness of the world
the winds of destruction
the idolators
the corpse-eaters
the swarming vermin
the screams of the dying

  2. I read the first thing this generated for me and immediately said, "Holy shit."

    You are knocking it out of the park with these generators lately. I feel like I could build a whole campaign out of a world based on these generators.
