    Default The World of Sajana

    Hello,
    I got hooked to D&D through Rollplay a while back. I started a group and ran a pregen module but now I want to start my own campaign in my own world.

    So I combined some tutorials I found here and started mapping.
    I´m pretty satisfied with the results, but i got some problems with name finding and finding interesting features for the world.
    Any suggestions for World/City/River etc names are greatly appreciated!

    Link to map( Its work in progress, I add tile by tile): click me!

    Try find a name generator, or try combining syllables with the characteristics of the name you want. for example, "desert" names: Halik, Al Jamur, Zoab, Minaj. "norse" names: Hoshtag, Throndheim, Gorland, Haeronland. good names for a world are: Asvalon, Thoron, Arganor, Gorion. This is in my opinion, but it is best you use a world name generator. And nice map!

    Get an idea of what the people living in your world think about the world and what it means to them: Is it a cradle? A homestead? A refuge?
    Then try to find a language that makes the term you selected cound cool - Latin works most of the time for me



    Kind regards,

    Thanks for the input =)
    The whole lore etc is another thing i have to come up with. But I can start there with only the region my players are at at the moment. =)
    Added a new Tile today and a new mountainrange/redirected a river to make the dessert more plausible.

    Fantasy Name Generator gives you lots of names, not all of them are very good, but with like 50 a page, you can probably find a couple you like. I also enjoy how it gives you different types of names (short, long, vowel heavy, etc...)

    Good luck!
    The best maps are the ones we like the most after looking at the longest.

    I use a website called Behind the name: Behind the Name: Meaning of Names, Baby Name Meanings

    It give the meaning of the names, so you can choose a name that way. It's good to have a great meaningfull name.

    Behind the name is only for people names, or am I missing something?
