Deck O' Names Generator 1

ZIP File

No more Tom, Dick and Harry!

Now produce quick, reasonable and unique names for your characters or NPCs with the fun Deck O' Names Generator. This program can be used by a player who is having trouble finding a name for a character, or GMs can generate names on the fly. The Generator can be used to develop names in advance, to have some available during a gaming session, or have it open during play to use as conversations develop.

The Deck O' Names takes segments of common names and mixes them in new ways that create fantasy or sci-fi names that sound reasonable to our ears. No more random names like "snarkl," or having to use "Bob." With just the click of a mouse, you can generate cool names even if you are unprepared for the "What's his name?" question.

With lists of 100 male and 100 female names, there are over 34,000 possibilities each! Simply start the appropriate program, generate between 1 and 1000 names at a time and make your choice of an interesting and different name.

The most recent version has increased functionality, including: Sort, Randomize, Count, Limit to Unique Names, and Print functionality.

Original electronic
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.
