|Subject: Need a good name generator? Here you go! Sun 22 Jan - 0:54|| |
I was looking for a good generator to add to the MMO Beginner's Pack that we're working on (more on that later), and found this rather useful website.http://www.seventhsanctum.com
Here you'll find a collection of 'generators' that make random names for characters, mythical creatures, ships, kingdoms, planets, magic spells, and even futuristic government names.
It really is a great resource for those who need help naming particular characters, or coming up with monster names, or even names for special weapons. (I've just generated a weapon name called "Infolance" - sometimes there are some really odd results, but there are also some great ones.
What is also really interesting is their Bookspinner section
. This generates very random book titles, with humorous ones like "Unexpected Similarities in the Hunting Habits of the Satyr and the Gorgon
" and "Common Superstitions Regarding The Sex Life of The Sea Serpent
However, there are some more realistic titles, such as "The Lance and Broadsword: An Extensive Tutorial on Covert Use
" and "A Catalogue of Remedial Magical Art
The interesting thing about this particular generator, apart from the odd results, is that you can select an option that generates a sort of description on the quality of the books information, and additional items that can be found inside the book.
Here's an example:
Daggers and Shivs: A New Legendary History
- This book is clear mostly due to the excellent, well-planned chapters. A small study will show it has a lot useful information.
- Examining the book, one will find: Bookmarks marking informative information. Pieces of paper with notes, in a recognizable, but foreign language, commenting critically on related elements in the book.
As I said before, there are lots of different generators on there, and I would highly recommend using them, especially if you're aiming to make an in-depth fantasy RPG.
Hopefully, I'll be able to get the source code for it, so it can be included in the MMO Beginner's Guide.
