    And here's an example of what towngen.wordo generates:

    Code:
    pisoshi
      Occupation: shochu-dealer
      FirstName: kijiteho
    kito
      Occupation: rice-farmer
      FirstName: zowosu
    zachihawe
      Occupation: sake-dealer
      FirstName: ohi
    hihi
      Occupation: sake-dealer
      FirstName: hehechihi
    mofuji
      Occupation: furrier
      FirstName: awatsu
    The file was inspired by this discussion: Japanese Population Demographics

    I set up rules to make occupations from sets of tokens (occupations and occupations-rare) and weighted it to make rare occupations, well, rarer. The names I made Japanese-ish by setting up token sets to build something that resembles the hiragana set of sounds. I'm pretty sure I'm not hitting all of it, especially the ya/yo/yu combinations and ji u -> ju rules.

    I'm thinking I can add (some of) those using the translate command.

    Edit: Bummer, I didn't think about paging, so most people are probably going to miss the previous two posts. Yes, serves me right for triple-posting, I guess. Please, take a look at previous page.

    Continuing my monologue, here's a quick example of something that, when the token lists are expanded, could be useful. Also, I just had an idea to allow us to use external files for token lists.

    Code:
    tokens prefixes Alecs Berts Detchers
    tokens mountains peak heights fell
    tokens rivers stream flow rapids
    
    startingrule mountains 100
    startingrule rivers 100
    
    rule mountains {
    token prefixes
    token mountains
    }
    
    rule rivers {
    token prefixes
    token rivers
    }
    With this, youget 100 mountain names followed by 100 river names.

    I'll have some time on my hands tonight to fix things. I hope to get something new out tonight, with bug fixes and a couple of features.
