Interactive fiction author Emily Short created a procedural generator for her project The Annals of the Parrigues – a spoof of quirky English guide books.
In her system she created 5 symbolic categories:
- Salt – dray, organized, orderly, colorless
- Beeswax – busy, diverse, warm, artisanal, chaotic
- Venom – brightly colored, ornate, sneaky, deceitful
- Mushroom – fertile, fermenting, growing and decaying
- Egg – simple, hierarchical, elegant, exclusive
