Permutations and Combinations Tool


This is a Windows wargaming and RPG tool that helps game masters generate "random" items from lists.  It does not support a full discrete set combinatorial algebra.  Nor do you have to know what that is to use it.  Just type up some plain ol' text lists of stuff, drag and drop them around the interface, and hit the button.

Shuffler is great for quickly coming up with big lists of stuff.  Grab the top 100 French baby names list off the Internet.  Grab the top 100 German surnames of the Internet.  Drag.  Drop.  Viola! you have a list of names for the Alsasce-Lorraine Liberation Army!

The tool is also great with:

  • turning syllables into fantasy names for orcs, elves, etc.
  • ginning up stats, occupations, and skills for a townfull of NPC's
  • making a squad order of battle the source for a battlation of soldiers
  • creating whole galaxies from a handfull of characteristics and a big list of names you already made with Shuffler
  • pre-mapping random sets of possessions to loot from the vanquished
  • even generating XML datasets for other tools (if you're a geek like me!)

If you are only need to combine three lists of four things, its only 64 total.  You don't need this tool.  But the size of XY gets really big, really fast ... so when you need it, you need it.

What is with this program? I was hoping for a sweet little generator I could use to easily generate some data and it is coming up as malware. Explain why please.

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.
