Inquisitor Cut-ups

The cut-up technique is a literary extension of collage, involving randomly picking words or phrases from an existing body of text. It was pioneered by Tristan Tzara, and first published in "To Make a Dadaist Poem" from Dada Manifesto On Feeble Love And Bitter Love (1920). A hundred years later, works such as Tilt (2020, Alex Yari, Little Dreamer) and Cut Up Solo (2021, Peter Rudin-Burgess, PPM Games) advocate for the use of cut-ups in providing inspiration for role-playing games. The Dark Heresy role-playing game is set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe and has the player characters in the role of acolytes working for the Inquisition. Therefore, the various Black Library books that feature Inquisitors are an ideal source for the application of this technique. This page generates sets of random snippets from the following series:
