The "Ranma ½/Sailor Moon Crossover Cliché Creator" was a simple 1d6 series of tables designed to create random arrangements of long established clichés involved in Ranma ½/Sailor Moon crossovers. It was created by Targhan and published online on May 12th, 2002.[1]



A competition was run using the creator, with a deadline of May 31st, 2002 and a winner announced on June 9th, 2002.

Fics Based on Cliché CreatorEdit

Creator Rules[2]Edit

Instructions for use: Go out and find a single six-sided die. Got one? Good. The process to create your own cliché crossover is relatively simple. From each main table below, roll the six-sided die, and record the results. A few rolled results will require a roll on a sub-table.

Dice?!!?: It has come to my attention that some potential authors may not know how to use dice and tables. "Dice" is the plural of "die," which is used to generate random numbers. In this case, the only die used is the six-sided die that is the most common. Simply go from top to bottom, rolling the single six-sided die once for each table. Compare the number generated to the number on the table, and note the results. Some entries have special instructions. These include modifiers (explained below), and sub-tables. A sub-table is referred to, the result taken, and then go back to the original table. Some entries will require more than one roll on a table. Questions will be answered from the review section, but please check to see if the question has already been answered!

Modifiers: Rolls may be affected by a modifier. Some tables can provide a result that will add or subtract from a modifier. Some modifiers are used only on the table where it is found--others add to every roll. Those that add to all rolls are noted. If you have a universal modifier and a local modifier, they will be added together (example: you have a +1 to all rolls, and you get a -1 on a table which asks you to roll again. The two modifiers are added for the second roll; in this case, (+1) + (-1) = 0. So, the next roll would be unmodified. When you go to the next table, only the permanent modifiers may stay; thus, the +1 would be restored on the next table).
