/etc/gnarr/templates, Contains the templates Gnarr uses to construct battle cries; one is a global system file (installed with Gnarr), the other is user-specific.
Gnarr constructs battle cries by randomly choosing a template from the list in /etc/gnarr/templates and ~/.gnarrrc, and replacing certain words with randomly chosen words or phrases. For example, WEAPON is replaced by a random weapon name. THe word categories are defined by /etc/gnarr/categories, with each category having a separate configuration file in /etc/gnarr/ (i.e. /etc/gnarr/weapons).
For an up-to-date list, and what words they can be replaced by, see gnarr -l.
Gnarr generates battle cries in Common, not Dwarvish. Also, it is unknown as to whether or not dwarves shout "Rice!" when entering battle. It is the opinion of the author that they do, however since v3, they dont.
Joe Wreschnig <email@example.com> is the author Gnarr. This idea originally appeared in Dragon Magazine. Gnarr is in the public domain, but you are encouraged to contribute new cry templates or substitutions back to Joe.
