Two rules:

Listy Definitions [Jota]

I. If any list of things is said to be in "Standard Order", that will mean
   they are ordered according to case-insensitive alphabetical order,
   ignoring articles (the words "a", "an", "the") and non-alphabetic
   characters. Any items remaining will be at the end of that list,
   ordered alphabetically with articles included but non-alphabetic
   ignored. Any items still remaining will follow in numerical order if
   numerical, and at the very end of the list if not.

II. If one item from a set is to be chosen by "Random Selection", the
    items (or names of the items, as appropriate) will be considered in
    Standard Order. A die will be rolled whose number of sides is the same
    as the number of items in the list; if no appropriate die is
    available, the next largest die will be used instead. The number
    rolled will be used as an index (where "1" indicates the first item in
    Standard Order) to select the item; if the value exceeds the number of
    items on the list, it will be rerolled.
