    Post Fantasy Name Generator

    If, like me, you have trouble coming up with names for your fantasy cities and towns, have a go on this name generator. It's worth checking out the other stuff the site has to offer too.

    I like http://www.mythosa.net/ for generating names when I have a need to... but it not only generates names... it generates a great big googly-moogly bunch of things, even random dungeons and city streets and caves ... tarot readings... moon phases... castle geomorphs... I also love its 3.5 town generator .... which does a whole lotta work for minimal pay... no top of that... its so easy to make your own types of tables an generators I don't see why everyone doesn't have it... it should be mandatory in fact...

    Oh.. and for a good 3.5 EL calculator .. try http://www.penpaperpixel.org/tools/d...calculator.htm or http://www.liquidmateria.info/xpcalc.php and here http://www.quatrilien.com/rpg/Encounter.html

    and a couple of online dice rollers that actually keep your rolls on a database http://krisinchico.brinkster.net/rolldata.asp and http://invisiblecastle.com/roller/
    and yet another http://www.openroleplaying.org/tools...ller/index.cgi

    Course... I could go on and on like this... I've been collecting links, docs, xcl, exe and everything in between on gaming, dnd and mapping for a very long time... which is why I'm surprised I didn't find this site until a few months ago... I'm always out there surfing for stuff...

    I've never heard of this generator until now and OMG, it has knocked me off my socks! It is simply amazing and will definitely be a great help, especially its Coat of Arms generator! Thanks so much for sharing this!!!

    Hey all, here are some more tools for your pleasure.

    ORBIS <-- Cool travel-map, found this thanks to Maezar
    Colorbrewer: Color Advice for Maps <-- Neat tool to explore, good if you want different countries or boundaries.
    TypeBrewer <-- Typestyle can really affect Maps
    A Periodic Table of Visualization Methods <-- If you need to show information on your map and need a format to do it.
    RANDOM.ORG - Geographic Coordinates <-- Great for brainstorming map places & ideas (more often than not, it’ll be water though)
    http://www.mapcrunch.com/ <-- Random street view, helpful for inspiration especially with modern maps. Also shows cultural differences (architecture) and land differences between geographical location.
    Behind the Name: Random Name Generator <-- Another name generator for some variation. Others I looked at were dumb because they were combined phrases, not actual names. (Example: Empire of the Dirty Pelican)
    Flash Earth - Zoom into satellite and aerial imagery of the Earth in Flash <-- Neat alternative to google maps
    NASA World Wind <-- More 3-D google earth stuff, by NASA
    http://bioval.jrc.ec.europa.eu/produ...ing_laness.png <-- Shipping Lanes
    Chaotic Shiny - Language Mixer <-- Language generator
    The best maps are the ones we like the most after looking at the longest.
    I cAn gET fancy w1th my s1GNaturE, UH huh!
