Give an historical flair to place names!

With the Deck O' Names, quick names for fantasy towns are possible even for the naming-challenged. Use these cards to generate names in the Old English style, to add ambience to your towns and other places. GMs can develop names in advance while making a map, or generate them on the fly during a gaming session.

The Deck O' Names - Anglo Saxon Places offers the historical connoisseur or budding medievalist a useful tool for creating Anglo Saxon place names in Old English. This 100-card set takes segments of authentic Anglo Saxon place names and mixes them to provide over 31,000 variations. Simply print the appropriate pages, cut out the cards and mix. Then pull two, and combine the segments of your choice for an interesting and different name.

Contents:
  • 100 2.25-inch by 2.25-inch cards, each with two place name prefixes and suffixes (9 pages)
  • Introduction to the Deck O' Names, including how to use the deck
  • Historical information on the Anglo Saxon people and their language
  • A pronunciation guide to Old English
  • A chart of Anglo Saxon runes and their modern equivalents
  • Translations of the place name suffixes

  • A printable card box

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.
