A Picture of a Hundred Words

Wordle: Northeast Wars IX Convention Book

Wordle is a web application that generates a collage out of a mass of text, like, say the entire Lord of the Rings trilogy, or the Call of Cthulhu corebook. In our case, this word cloud comes from the Northeast Wars IX convention book — which, by the way, you can download here if you want to see what was on offer last year. Just click on the image to the right to see it in greater detail.

The bigger a word is, the more frequently it’s used in the text. Going by our wordle, events scheduled in the post meridian seem pretty popular; so few gamers are morning people! These word clouds can also be customized, in that you can select the font type, color palette and even general orientation of the words.

There are forum threads of people who converted roleplaying game books into wordles, over on, ENWorld and Storygames.
