An oracle for Sufficiently Advanced, a Game of the Far Future. This oracle creates multiple Stardweller homes - specifically, ones that have some sort of trouble going on so that they'll make better settings for adventures. This oracle is basically complete. There will soon be a Stardweller Characters generator as well.
Sometimes (though not too often) this oracle will feed you nonsense. It will say something like "only one person lives here" and "about half of the population is a single group-mind." You will need to decide which part of that to drop.
This mission is [size] [mission] [population]. [neuroform1][neuroform2]. Temperatures are typically [temperature][varitemp]. The physical space is [analogfeel], while digital space [digitalfeel] [digitalmetaphor]. [society] have an unexpectedly large presence. Also visiting are some citizens from [foreign] and [foreign].
On the surface, [surfaceissues], but underneath, [deeperissues]. You will find aid from [tagonists], but face both [tagonists], and [tagonists]. Meanwhile, [tagonists] are pulling strings in the background.
