Automating Topic Tuesday

As you may or may not know, Logan Knight recently whipped up some code to make your own computer-generation tables, and Paolo Greco added a bookmarklet function so that you can create your own tables to either drag to your bookmark bar or embed in a blogpost.

So, of course, I had to turn the OSRBA Topic Tuesday generator into an automated link. Behold!
OSRBA Topic Generator
(EDIT: Fixed. There's also a link in the sidebar that works.)
It’s different from the original tables in a couple of ways:
  1. Prepositions are now randomized.
  2. Objects of prepositions are no longer linked as
    closely to the rolls that generate the first two
    words (in other words, it’s as if you roll the
    d12, d4, and d8, then roll a separate d12 and d8.)
I did try to keep the weights the same, however, so “Dungeons” will be rarer than “Monsters”, and “Weirdness” wil still be rarer than “Wood”.
