    Wip Muddle's Random Place Name Generator

    Hello all,
    I decided to try and create my own random place name generator for a map project I have been working on. I tend to like the style of naming found in "over-the-top" fantasy action-rpg video games like Warhammer and Diablo II, so many of the results from my generator are a bit ridiculous and silly. I know that there are lots and lots of these sort of things out on the interwebs, but at least I know this one was made by me.

    Anyway here's a link, Try it out and let me know what all you think.

    lol, on the first page I generated I got, among others:

    "Maggot's Goblinmoon Ocean of Voids"

    "Lesser Thatchfang Reef of the Concentric Rat"

    and

    "The Sea".

    Neat!

    I have made a few updates to the generator. It was a little **too** random before, and generated lots of silly names. That should be a bit more toned down now. It does still generate some ridiculous and silly names, but there's more logic behind the assignment of words so it is starting to get to the point where it seems more usable.

    here's another link:

    Wow, I don't remember any games with Ducks as a playable character!, Does anybody remember the name of that game? Could you enlighten me on this?

    Runequest or, to be more specific, the Glorantha setting.
