Potion Generator

“The Love Potion” by Evelyn De Morgan.

Another classic subject for random generators are potions. Currently this generator produces the potion effects perhaps a bit too randomly. I would not want to make it select from just a dull list of predefined spell effects, but maybe a little more rhyme or reason would be in order?


Summary Mode

This generator can produce a short description about the liquid itself (using a {lib:potion#summary} call):


Detail Mode

Alternatively, it can also put together a longer description giving details also about the container and the properties of the broth (when called as {lib:potion#detail}):



It is not possible to specify subtables for generators embedded in the blog, but the source data for this generator is available in the GitHub repository. You can copy and paste the .json file contents into the Generator Service text box and start experimenting with the generator. Subtables can be specified in the resultPattern string.

If you are already using Campaign Logger, open one of your campaign logs, click the cogwheel-shaped Options button, select Manage Custom Generators, then Add new generator… and paste the generator data in the text box. After you save the generator, click the Show Generators button in your campaign log to access the new generator.
