This is a multi-column table for generating rumors for fantasy games, nothing more and nothing less. There are three columns with twenty entries and one with forty that you can combine to generate phrases.
There is a note that random rolls generated some nonsensical results, but I went ahead and penciled in the numbers to allow for random rolls on my printed copy anyway. Sometimes a little nonsense helps as a creative starting point.
This is probably easily adapted to feudal sci-fi games as well.
