Monday Fun — Random Name/Plot/Place Generator

So remember how I wrote that post about a character creation quiz? From the awesome that is Dungeons & Dragons comes yet another cool tool to help out we imagination-starved authors.

Squid.org’s Random Name Generator doesn’t just generate random silly fantasy names. It also generates random silly fantasy plots, silly fantasy town names, silly fantasy monsters, and even tree-types. The trees aren’t silly, but it’s still fun that someone made a random generator for them!

There’s about 40 different generators to choose from, and they’re all fantastic. Even if you don’t want to write a fantasy story, I’d say it’s worth checking out just for the sheer entertainment value. Here are some of my favourites:

Generator: dramatic-situation

LOSS OF LOVED ONES
Elements: A kinsman slain, a kinsman spectator, and an executioner.
Witnessing the slaying of kinsmen while powerless to prevent it.

Generator: title

Gryphonslinger

Generator: Book Titles

History of Hassitic Architecture, by Care Carhan the Magnificent

Generator: QuestGen

  1. Grimald Shortbreath the Architect (impulsive elder high elf male, quiet) sends party to talk to Duryaith the Messenger (tender short teen dwarven male, gap-toothed).
  2. Duryaith the Messenger (tender short teen dwarven male, gap-toothed) gives party heavy ballista.
  3. Heavy ballista needs to be used at forgotten mansion in swamp.

Random Meme of the Day: Nyan Cat!

  4. Foods from the grocery store might last you all month, whereas the organic
    versions of those same foods at the health food store may only last you half the
    month. When we try to muscle through with just
    conviction as our army we’re doing it the hard way.
    It was well known that oats were grown, stored, milled and packaged with wheat products are were typically very contaminated
    with gluten.
