Another Technobabble Generator

by NEil Phillips

Here it is, the brand new Technobabble Generator! This was inspired by something S. John Ross posted a while back. Thanks for the inspiration, and the stuff I stole form the original. :)

The technobabble generator should be used to inform misinformed players about how stuff works. It should be used in Pulp, Space Opera, and that sort of thing when players get nosy about trivial things :)

Roll on this master table, then fill in the blanks by rolling 3 dice on the other tables below! Make stuff Plural where necessary. Remember, the explanations work best if shouted whilst smiling. Give it a go! :)

Master Table:
3 -- Who cares about the <component>? It works!
4 -- Dunno! The professor said something about <particles>. But it sure is swell!

7 -- The <particle> driven <component> was developed in a lab in <country>!
8 -- The secret of <particle> driven <component> was discovered deep in the jungles of <country>!
9 -- This miracle is achieved through superior <components>!
10 -- It's a simple matter of applying <type> radiation to <particles>!
11 -- A <component> has been rigged up to the <component>!

13 -- The <component> emmits <type> <particles>!
14 -- The <nationality> developed a new <type> <component>!
15 -- The <component> was routed through the auxillery <type> <particle> <component>!
