@Anyone able to edit the generator: can you please add a couple of my characters? I wonder what they're up to.
Elphimas: they/them, hero
Kalit Mudroha: he/him, villain (weapon of choice: Kalit's Claw/venomous sword)
Ungar Landvik: he/him, villain

Also, I'm going to change the "official" name of my viashino to just Sharaka. Sharaka Tharnak sounds suspiciously similar to Morgezka Shanak :V

Done. I deleted Sharaka's second name in the generator to reflect this, as well.

EDIT: After some further testing, Elphimas's gender-neutral pronoun causes some syntax problems (most prompts that call the pronoun will say "they is.") To fix this, I simply changed Elphimas's "pronoun" to Elphimas.

Thank you!

After hearing a compelling story, Clade decides to search for a mysterious treasure on New Phyrexia. For the sake of safety, Clade seeks to travel with The Duchess. After a long and eventful adventure, they finally reach a remote island. After hours of searching, they find their treasure! Triumphantly, Clade raises a magic key over his head!

With the Duchess? For safety?

Quote:
A terrible occurrence happens when Ungar Landvik is left suffering from delirious hallucinations and in his struggle destroys several planes!

AKA Tuesday.
Quote:
Now he asks Ygraine of Segovia to help him by rolling a Myr Battlesphere so that he can restore the planes to what they once were. When she rolls the sphere, she manages to catch a Hydra Advisor, a Metathran, a Horror Merfolk, and even Ilyta! How Exciting! ♥

He then proceeds to use the battlesphere to crush even more planes. Ilyta is not surprised.

Quote:
In the Citizen and Fungus tavern on The Infinite Library, in front of a gathering crowd, Alessa Rehn gives an Aubedore reading to Sharaka in the "Crossroads pattern."

For the corners, she draws the Teacher (inverted), the Flag, the Bird (inverted), and the Griffin.

For the spokes, she draws the Manacles, the Soldier (inverted), the Pond, and the Peak.

At the Crossroads, she lays the Servant (inverted) vertically as the destination, under the fate card of the Spider (inverted), which is horizontal.

Sharaka orders a stiff drink.

Manacles and inverted Servant? I am no Aubedore reader, but this sounds bad.

Quote:
Gruff attempts to explain how dangerous the Sword that Cuts Eternity is to Ungar Landvik, but he realizes Ungar couldn't care less!

It's not that he doesn't care, exactly...

Quote:
Fisco Vane, the Shark gets a new pet, a Goblin Survivor! But Raiker Venn decides to kill the poor thing!

Raiker: "How long will our friend be able to hold on his title, I wonder?"

Quote:
The Magician Nasperge is bored, and decides to give an Aubedore reading to a Fungus.

Nasperge draws the Queen, the Baroness (inverted), and the Princess (inverted), and declares his reading confusing.

Should he kiss it?

Quote:
Clade parties out on Thorneau. There, he tears down civilization, leaving only a Human alive.

The woman stood stiffly as her eyes scanned the ruins that had been the royal palace. She had dreamed about this once, but she hadn't foreseen the overwhelming nausea that tied her guts in a furious knot. A single tear crossed Aurélie's cheek.

Kahr-ret-Taris attempts to explain how to pronounce "Morgan of Voor" to Beryl, the Heart-Scarred, but Beryl would rather talk about how dangerous The Eye of Foresight is.

Quote:
Raleris, the Lorekeeper finds himself surrounded by a very strange army comprised of Rats, Ooze Constructs, Thalakos Barbarians, and even Hippogriffs.

Hippogriffs are always fun, Thalakos Barbarians seems almost oxymoronical, and rats are just kind of meh. But the real question here is how does one go about constructing an ooze?

Quote:
Nasperge does an Aubedore reading for The Duchess in the "Crossroads" pattern.

For the corners, he draws the Student (inverted), the Fish, the Peak (inverted), and the Sword.

For the spokes, he draws the Statue, the Castle, the Ancient One (inverted), and the Throne (inverted).

At the Crossroads, he lays the Endless Maze (inverted) vertically as the destination, under the fate card of the Gravestone, which is horizontal.

The Duchess accuses him of stacking the deck.

Well, now, this is a fascinating little Aubedore reading, now isn't it? Let's see what we can decipher here. Firstly, we see an inverted Student leading into the Statue. On the surface, this seems to be referring to The Duchess herself, as the upper-left corner of the "Crossroads" pattern does, often, refer to the recipient of the reading, and The Duchess's cold, emotionless demeanor could certainly be called statue-like. However, there is another, deeper reading that requires knowledge of the events on Aliavelli, where Moira Trevanei was hand-picked to be the High Sorceress, essentially under The Duchess, and Moira, as Orcish often describes the memory of Moira as making her a "Marble Woman," and so this reading might be hinting at something more dire for The Duchess.

Secondly, we have The Fish leading into The Castle. A fish is a small creature, used for food or perhaps distraction, to which little notice is paid. A castle is a fortress, perhaps impenetrable to direct assault, but castles often have moats. Moats in which a fish might swim, unnoticed. So perhaps The Fish here suggests that some "small," unnoticed force could breach The Duchess's defense.

The Peak, particularly in a reading that is leaning toward elements of power as we might be, would represent the summit of power, but inverted as it is here, perhaps we are seeing a collapse of that power or, if not quite so extreme, another in-road toward undermining that power. The inverted Ancient One could be literal, as of someone young, or perhaps comparative, as of someone quite old, but considerably younger than The Duchess herself. Someone, perhaps, like The Shifter?

The Sword, leading to the inverted Throne, seems to be a clear message: Outright war will bring about a loss of power/authority/control, which is of course the last thing The Duchess wants.

The Endless Maze, inverted or not, seems a dire destination card, and when covered by the Fate card of The Gravestone, all the more. Perhaps the events on Aliavelli are more detrimental to The Duchess than we may have suspected?

Quote:
Kalit Mudroha planeswalks to Shandrovol. There, he gets drawn into complex political intrigue by Maral, Celestial Wright.

I could see this happening, actually.

Quote:
In the dark of the night, Gale is woken by a Sheep! The Sheep explains that she has been chosen to become the last defender of Valjan and using the magic of a gilded lotus, she can become the hero known as Magical Girl Gale!

Gale: "I thought you were supposed to put people to sleep, not wake them up!"
Sheep: "Baa!"
Gale: "Well, anyway, I'm not magical, so leave me alone."

Quote:
An Æther Vent has resurfaced from the depths of history, and now Zhiran planeswalks to Aliavelli in search of it. Can he get to it before Kalit Mudroha?

Ye, gods, I hope so.

Quote:
Huinn, Last of the Darkwings arrives on Ikass, in the possession of the artifact known as The Staff of Endless Memory. But Tryst covets The Staff of Endless Memory and attempts to steal it from Huinn

I don't know if the Staff is necessary, but Barinellos, Orcish, or both? This Tryst/Huinn match-up intrigues me, if you guys are looking for ideas...

Quote:
Morgezka Shanak has a secret admirer! After receiving several gifts, Morgezka discovers the secret admirer is Syl of the Dual-Walkers! Morgezka tries to let Syl down easy.

If this happened in the past, before Morgezka met Grund, that phrase is metaphorical. If it happened in the present, it's literal, and refers to Morgezka's throat...

Apparently, trying to grow trees on Grixis is considered evil. They really like all that grime and gore. Also, if there were a tavern on Grixis, the "Rotting Elemental" is a pretty good name for it.

To be honest, it's safe to assume Kalit doesn't even know what a birthday party is; the "surprise" part might cause some really awkward moments... :D

For the corners, he draws the Snake, the Sufferer (inverted), the Flag (inverted), and the Priest.

For the spokes, he draws the Throne, the Arrow (inverted), the Path (inverted), and the Angel (inverted).

At the Crossroads, he lays the Archmage (inverted) vertically as the destination, under the fate card of the Smith (inverted), which is horizontal.

Fisco Vane, the Shark is free to interpret the reading as he wishes.

At a first glance this seems an interesting reading, though it doesn't seem to bode well...

Quote:
The multiverse has it out for Beryl, as Fisco Vane, the Shark curses Beryl, the Heart-Scarred with terrible nightmares. Poor Beryl now has to get Jade's help.

More likely: Beryl starts having nightmares about Fisco, and asks Jade's help. To Beryl's surprise, Jade informs her that Fisco is still alive, but in a very bad spot, and the nightmares were truthful.

At the Crossroads, she lays the Twins (inverted) vertically as the destination, under the fate card of the Ring, which is horizontal.

Sharaka tells Alessa she's crazy, but she can't help but wonder...

Now I'm wondering too. Too bad I'm not good at interpreting tarot-like readings :V

Well, let's see what we can do about this one, shall we? :D

The Lost in its inverted position seems to indicate somebody who is found, which of course insinuates that they were lost at some point. Because the upper left-hand corner is often a representation of the recipient of the reading, we can assume that this is either a literal reference to Sharaka being found after her 'walk, or a figurative expression of her "finding her way" as her current arc leads her down a different path. This is particularly interesting in the context of the connected spoke, which is The Student, likely indicating Sharaka's learning of a new discipline.

The second corner is The Soldier, which seems to indicate Sharaka's past, and leading to the spoke of the inverted Wolf, which is know is an intensifier in its standard position, may indicate that her soldier/fighter/warrior nature is diminishing, or that danger to her is decreasing as she leads away from the soldier's path.

The Woods may be indicating some of the elements of green mana. That's not saying that Sharaka is moving to , necessarily, but green has healing and strengthening elements to it. The Smith is, of course, something that strengthens with fire, so perhaps this indicates that Sharaka's healing path will make her all the stronger.

The final pair is The Servant connected to the inverted Anvil. The Servant, again, plays into this healing theme, but the interesting one is the inverted Anvil, particularly in the same reading and in the same "area" as The Smith. The Smith, of course, uses the Anvil to help shape the metal she is working with, pounding it into shape before it cools. In the inverted position, this becomes much more difficult to read. But, considering it has The Smith to the right and The Student to the left, and connected to The Servant at the corner, I read this card here, in its inverted position, as something that has strengthened Sharaka without hardening her. This may, I suspect, be an event we have yet to see.

The destination and the fate cards are also perplexing, particularly out of context with the rest of the reading. Non-inverted, The Twins likely represent connection and unity. Ironically, this is also similar to the reading for the non-Inverted Ring, a connection and wholeness. Sometimes The Ring has a romantic connotation, but we're really not seeing much of that theme in this reading. The Twins, however, are inverted here, which could be as simple as inverting the meaning, leading to disconnection and isolation. As the destination card, this seems to indicate that at this point in her life, Sharaka wants little more than to simply be left alone, but the fate card over it hints at the connectivity that she herself shuns. When taken with the rest of the reading, which seems to be leading from stoic warriorism to healer, I read this as the possibility that her Healing Path may lead her to becoming whole once again, or perhaps finding that connection with others that she hasn't had since being taken from her people.

For some reason I like Tarot-like interpretations a lot, so this kind of posts are always a pleasure to read. Know that this particular reading led me back to Healing Paths. Thank you! :D

(some parts of your interpretations are disgustingly on point, by the way)

A thousand years ago, the Dual-Walkers, Syl and Chardis, host the Amphiseum Games, and watch a planeswalker battle a murderous Sponge.

Chardis: "I must say, that was quite disappointing, dear sister."
Syl: "I do not understand it, dear brother. On its native plane, that sponge killed hundreds."
Chardis: "On its native plane, it trapped merfolk and Cephalids on the bottom of the ocean. Here, it did nothing but lay there and burn."
Syl: "Good point. Hmm. How much trouble would it be, dear brother, to flood the Amphiseum?"
Chardis: "I do not think...well, actually, that might prove very interesting. I wonder who our champion dragon would do underwater."
Syl: "Perhaps she would finally stop stealing the show from its true stars."

Quote:
Unexpectedly, Antine saves The Duchess's life. Now, The Duchess is eternally grateful.

:takei:

What a twist!

Quote:
Kimberley Talon wakes up to find she's on Jakkard. She last remembers being on Dammerdall and has no memory of how she got here! Will Kimberley be able to regain those lost memories before a Chaotic Æther makes escape impossible?

It's not Chaotic Æther, Generator. It's just the Crystal Ceiling. And Kimberley's been to Jakkard before, so she should know about it.

Quote:
Cara Holis begins traveling with Orida Vise. Can they stick together despite their differences?

This is a thing that should happen. Also, no, they probably can't.

Quote:
Blink planeswalks to the conspiracy-ridden plane of Fiora. There, she is deceived by Eyeless.

Turnabout is fair play?

Quote:
Begrudgingly, Gale saves Asher's life. This makes Lia Xin inexplicably jealous.

Gale: "Huh. What's eating her?"
Asher: "No idea. She didn't say a word to me."

who moves to add the new creature types for Unstable into the generator?

We have a "Weird" sublist, right?

Coincidentally, Beryl, the Heart-Scarred and Dantalion both end up on Ameran. There, Beryl and Dantalion meet up, and together begin searching for The Nocturne Wheel, but the planar natives are determined to stop them by any means necessary.

And the Generator continues to find new and creative ways to ruin the alternate-reality Beryl's life.

Quote:
Kahr-ret-Taris wakes up to find he's on Grixis. He last remembers being on Helkavin and has no memory of how he got here! Will Kahr be able to regain those lost memories before a Reality Shaping makes escape impossible?

See, my guess would be that it was a Reality Shaping that caused the problem in the first place.

Quote:
Mel Odrum attempts to tie Gale to the railroad tracks. It does NOT end well for him...

Gale: "You idiot, what are you doing? What kind of a knot is that?!? Here, let me show you!"

Quote:
Jade has gone missing, and now Antine goes in search of her. The search takes Antine from Lorwyn to Ikass and finally to one of the thousand refractions of Rabiah, where he learns that Jade has returned to Shadowmoor.

Wow, that's...a really interesting story idea, actually.

Quote:
Rishima, Queen of the Black Sands regales Auric Avarius with stories of her youth.

That prompt is pure, villainy gold.

Quote:
During a volcanic eruption, Sundar Elarion saves Aria's life.

I could see these two having some interesting adventures.

Quote:
Penelophine begins traveling with Syl of the Dual-Walkers. But when Syl of the Dual-Walkers interrupts a battle between Morgezka Shanak and Lady Nasina, Penelophine is forced to planeswalk to the deserted island plane of Azoria.

So...this happened in the past, right? Which puts a very interesting spin on Lady Nasina...

Quote:
It’s an interplanar game of Tag! Ygraine of Segovia tags Raiker Venn on Helkavin, who tags Dorn on the Djinn-ruled elemental plane Wildfire, who tags Huinn, Last of the Darkwings on Arkhos, home of Lethe Lake. Huinn attempts to tag Elphimas on Zhiran's Academy, but Elphimas narrowly escapes! Now Huinn is frustrated and bored…and cranky.

A cranky Huinn sounds like a very bad thing for the Multiverse.

The Multiversal Prom is coming up on Zhiran's Academy! Ygraine of Segovia has asked Tryst to go to the Prom with her! Tryst happily accepts! Things get more complicated when Tryst and her date get involved in an epic dance-off with Huinn, Last of the Darkwings and his date, Syl of the Dual-Walkers!

Of all the myriad questions this raises, I am choosing to ask this one: How are Ygraine and Tryst going to slow dance together?

Quote:
Alar blindly jumps to Dark Rabiah. There she spends an afternoon watching a rainbow with Kimberley Talon. After the experience, she is left suffering from a nyxborn viper's bite!

If I had to guess, I'd say that it was the Nyxborn venom that made Alar think she saw the rainbow. And Kimberley Talon...

Quote:
The paths of fate have converged and Aloise Hartley seeks revenge upon Gale because of a phenomenon known as a Time Distortion.

Beryl: "So, wait, why do we need to hit Gale in the face with a pie?"
Aloise: "Revenge. See, Gale hit me in the face with a pie next week Thursday before I got there."
Beryl: "So, now the future is the past?"
Aloise: "And soon I'll used to have a present for her!"
Beryl: "This is really getting tense."

Quote:
A Jakk gun has resurfaced from the depths of history, and now Nasperge planeswalks to Iquatana, home of the Æther Flues in search of it. But Nasperge gets more than he bargained for when he interrupts a battle between Lia Xin and The Duchess.

Nasperge: "Why, oh why, did I not check the cards before coming here?"

Quote:
Cara Holis planeswalks to Aliavelli. There, she trades information with Beryl, the Heart-Scarred.

Cara: "So, uh, we need to talk..."

Quote:
After experiencing a trippy hallucination, Beryl, the Heart-Scarred decides to search for a mysterious treasure on Shandrovol. For the sake of safety, Beryl enlists the aid of Kala, The Iron Doctor. After a long and eventful adventure, they finally reach a gigantic “X”. After hours of searching, they find their treasure! Triumphantly, Beryl raises a mystical sword over her head!

Yeah, sure, Beryl. I'm sure there's nothing about Kala that the Phyrexians would be interested in... :roll:

Quote:
Lady Nasina has a secret admirer! After receiving several gifts, Nasina discovers the secret admirer is Gruff! Nasina is disappointed.

Poor Gruff. And Poor Nasina, I guess.

Quote:
Sri Hara has a wild night. Now, he must exact revenge on Tryst. Does he have what it takes to escape?

Wait, what?
