This product works with any role playing game.

Quick Statistics:

  • more than 1600 female names (i.e. 16 tables with 100 names each, plus a table with less than 100 names)
  • more than 800 female nicknames,
  • more than 1400 male names,
  • more than 800 male nicknames,
  • and more than 1800 surnames.

With regards to all sample names listed: characters and names are used fictitiously. Any resemblance to actual persons, living or dead, is purely coincidental. Sample names you could generate from this volume:

  • (Female names) Rull Aethvond, Caebrolla "Nimble Caebrolla" Bertheif, Gwarka "Gwarka the miserable" Heirkver, and Gwyddis J. (Julyan) Skolning.



  • (Male names) Nosur Aendorn, Banic "Banic the unblushing" Fadnof, S. G. (Sabus Gloigil) Fograd, Gesur N. (Namlur) Graed, and Susel "Sloppy Susel" Tidar.



Terra Ferax Innovations' name tables series is designed to provide you with a way to quickly obtain a name for your PCs and NPCs. Tired of cartoonish names such as an elven ranger named "Woody Trolltracker"? Can your campaign suffer another cobbler named "Tommy Toetacker"?
Remove the cartoonish names from your campaign and give your PCs and NPCs believable and consistent names. Stop agonizing for hours over naming a character with easy to use, alphabetical lists of names arranged in numbered tables.
This booklet is table based, but this is to aid the harried Game Master in rolling up names for NPCs. Players should treat the tables simply as lists and choose names from them. The configuration section helps you design your name (are you Johann Bach, Johann S. Bach, J. Sebastian Bach, J.S. Bach, or Johann Sebastian Bach?). Do you have a nickname? Then you generate your first name, your middle name (if you have one), your nickname (if you have one), and your surname. In real life you might encounter someone with your first name or last name (or both). When's the last time that happened to your characters?

 

The naming tables have a table format that is an aide for the GM (PCs should choose, not roll) and since not all real nicknames are nice, the tables list some cruel nicknames (and you certainly don't have to use nicknames unless you want to).

Like the rest of the books in the "Name Tables" series, this book contains a very nice set of handy tables giving DM's a quick way to name N/PC's. I found it very helpful, especially for generating on-the-fly NPC's the party interacts with.&l [...]

Like another book in this series which I own, Dwarven Name Tables gives you exactly what you're looking for - Dwarven names. The amount of time that must have gone into listing and coming up with all of the names is really worth it. This is a book that [...]

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
