Each thematic subject is shown after the number (#). In parenthesis are words to help create manifestions of the theme. Each theme has 6 manifestations words, about 6,000 manifestations minus a few repeat words.

Procrastinate and build a sandbox-theme quickly randomly in one d1000 roll. Follow 4 principles of good sensory information.

Add manifestations of the thematic subject with 9 different character personality archetypes including behavior, thinking, dialogue, goal, temptation, fixation, active desire, and fear.

This is a theme generator that is meant to aid or take the place of a Gamemaster (GM) for injecting thematic subjects and manifestations of the them into a gamestory. Both sets of charts with results for 1D1000 2nd edition, as well as the original 144 result for 1st edition, systems are included.

This system is meant to give keywords or keyphrase, that when put together help to generate story theme—thematic subject as well as 9 personality character truths about the theme subject. The keywords are meant to help trigger thoughtful and inspirational ideas.

This system works well for adding random themes a settings for story writing, solo gaming, or to aid a GM.

This 2nd edtion expands and includes the 1st edition. 70 pages, many charts, 3 domains of themes, 21 subdomains, about 6,000 manifestion words, and 1,000 thematic subjects. Compared to the original which was 2pg chart & instructions, 1 domain, 10 subdomains, no manifestation words, and 288 results.

Example of Using Theme Generator

In this example, let’s assume that the person rolling has rolled a 1d1000 rolling a 004, a 4.

Subject #4 is found within the personal domain, the Sensation subdomain, on the table entitled “1-4 Sensation in general.”

#4 is the thematic subject “physical pain”.

In general, the gamestory may be about physical pain. Differing beliefs about physical pain begin to emerge within the gamestory by NPCs in the dialogue, emotions, body language, and actions of the story. Screams of pain or cries of suffering echo here, there, and everywhere. Events and situations that cause physical pain begin to materialize just because that is the thematic subject for the gamestory potentially to player characters and NPCs. Symbols or descriptive images of pain may appear in settings: bandaged wounded people, bent over clenched people, or healthcare workers trying to ease the pain.

The differing beliefs about physical pain begin to clash with the player character’s belief (truth or lie) about the situation.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
