I wasn't trying to be offensive, just to let you know how *I* handle combat. Other DMs may vary.

Topic: The Official Red Dragon Inn Name Generator thread
Subject: lie and statistics


For the record, I prefer quality over qualtity. That being said, I thought that some of you might find this interesting:

Our generator is now capable of producing just north of 51 THOUSAND different given names for khords (more males than females, but still, a nice amount to go around). If you factor in the eight thousand or so possible surnames, you get:

Brace yourself.

Better than Four. Hundred. MILLION. possible combinations.

I'll be fixing the logic that allows you to get "Axeaxe" or "Goblinforger" for a fantasy last name, but still, bad and/or goofy names aside, this is an absolute TON of possible names. I'm pretty sure that if you need a name, you can make one with this utility.

Topic: Buried Secrets Q&A
Subject: for future reference...


...I'd appreciate it if you would provide two, even three rounds' worth of combat actions in a given post. I won't be stopping combat every round for your input (or this adventure will takes ages). If I don't have set actions, I end up guessing, and your character might not do what you planned.

This is particularly important if your character has multiple roles in a given fight. For instance, I pretty much know that Isaac and Volkmar are going to attack the bad guys. There may be tactical considerations, but if all else fails, I can have them hit something, and I'll be pretty safe.

The same goes for Neri, except that she might want to lay some healing hands on someone every now and then.

Aryan has to pick and choose her spell uses, and then decide whether or not to wade in and start cracking heads with a sturdy piece of oak. I already know that her character only joins melee if necessary to defend herself, and emybear had let me know when she'd be casting another spell, if needed, so she was pretty well covered.

I had to ad lib a bit with Syana and Shianna this time... which turned out okay. But had the bard been taken down, I might have had one (or more) players angry at me for not having her retreat and use missile fire, or not having Shianna heal her.

The best thing is to post your intended combat actions, along with "if X happens, my character will try to Y. If A happens, she will do B instead." Also, for those of you who carry more than one weapon type, and for those who have spells, it would probably be wise to send me a PM with some "default actions."

I.e. - when to go into melee, when to hang back and fight from range, whether you'll fire into melee, what situations will lead you to cast spells, whether you prefer to burn all your spells right away, whether you prefer to conserve them, etc.


Thanks!

So you whiners are gonna make me add extra logic to this, aren't you?

Hrmph.

I'll say this - I'll put the realistic version up against any that you'll find anywhere. Except for the rare odd result that has too many consonants together, the names are absolutely top notch.

Axeshaft and Redbeard work... and are added.

The other two are already possible, thanks to existing seed names.

Topic: The Official Red Dragon Inn Name Generator thread
Subject: okay...


Agreed @ sill combinations. Some are not great. I might consider adding in some logic to how syllables are combined.

However, my inclination is to work on getting the next generator up and working. My thought is to get another very popular one - the sylvari (elves). I'll eventually cover most Audalis cultures... which will, in turn, cover typical names for most game worlds.

Any thoughts?

I'm assuming that your torches are in your backpacks, and thus pretty well protected. It would be not be impossible to get one out and light it, provided that you protect it from the elements while doing so.

Topic: Some Secrets are Best Left Buried...
Subject: facing the undead


18th Olemra (Thirkday), 452 E.R. - dusk
Forest, northwest of Lynx, Ertain.

Syana finished her quiet chant, and with a gesture, a glimmering blue disk of force lept into existence. Unfortunately, the rest of her plan did not go so well - as soon as the bard climbed aboard, the disk sank to the ground, then blinked out of existence.

Fortunately for Syana, Meera the wolf was there to cover her gaffe, as the beast pulled the zombie to the ground and mauled it until it was unable to rise again.

Shianna cleared her mind, grounded herself in her faith, and tried to turn the new zombies. This time, her demand was strong, her belief was sure, her appeal to Kith-jora's power was successful. Five of the zombies were repelled by the power of the nature god. For their part, the warriors were unable to score any telling blows as they moved to protect the casters.

The monster that Volkmar had been struggling with finally scored a blow of its own, wounding the khord. For his part, Isaac learned that no good deed went unpunished, as a zombie delivered a staggering blow to the young warrior.

Righteous anger filled Neri, and Oriana guided her servant's blade to deliver a terrible cleaving blow against the nearest zombie. It was a horrific attack, one that split the creature open to expose the inside of its rotting body... yet somehow, through some unholy power, the creature kept coming... and then, the creature slumped to the ground, to reveal the wounded form of Syana standing behind it, still brandishing her blade.

Volkmar attacked the zombie again, but missed badly... and then, the creature slumped to the ground, to reveal the wounded form of Syana standing behind it, still brandishing her blade.

Isaac barely managed to fend off an attack from an undead horror, but Neri stepped in to help. The paladin delivered yet another mighty cleave, and this time, there was no doubt - the zombie fell to the ground, still and unmoving. Volmar was hit yet again, and the khord began to feel the effects of his wounds.

The party was then able to gang up on the final remaining monster. Syana stabbed again, wounding the creature, before Volkmar finally struck the telling blow, and the last zombie fell motionless.

The fight ended, and no more undead monsters appeared lurched forth from the mists. Those that Shianna had turned had fled, leaving no trace behind. Once again, an eerie silence settled over the area.

DM's notes: Isaac and Volkmar are both pretty banged up. Syana is badly injured. To add insult to injury, Syana is out of spells. Aryan has one spell remaining... fortunately, Shianna still has her full compliment of spells for the day. Darkness is falling fast, and the drizzle continues to fall.

Topic: The Official Red Dragon Inn Name Generator thread
Subject: first one done!


The first Red Dragon name generator is up and running (link is here, as well as in the armoury section). This one will be for the khordaldrum (dwarves of Audalis, though the names are suitable for dwarves of any world or setting).

You may generate male or female given names, as well as realistic or fantasy-based surnames. Sure, you'll get the occasional odd result or repeat, but by and large, the generated names are excellent - and with literally thousands of possible combinations, you should be able to easily get a good name.

If you'd like to help make the generator even better, feel free to send name suggestions to me via PM.

Keep an eye out, as we will be releasing other name generators in the future.

Subject: oh so pleasant!


Like the rest of the reds, Stewert kept his blue eyes downcast, careful to avoid even the appearance of treason. His smile was warm, however, and his disposition pleasant.

"Thank you for this mission, he spoke gracefully. "I am excited at the opportunity to remove this blight from our glorious society."

Once the briefing was done, he addressed Julianne. "I fully agree that we should begin immediately - but do not be afraid. We will certainly overcome their influence, and cleanse Alpha Complex of their stain."

The blonde, athletic young man smiled again and stepped back. "Perhaps we should begin by accessing the computer records of subsector 21, so that we might know where to start looking?"

I had placed it below the last five, but that was unpopular.

The problem with moving it to the current ad space is that said ad space does not exist on every page of the site. So, where do we put them on those pages?

That's not gonna work. Even though yes, two of the other sites are technically breaking the rules by placing their banners a bit below the fold, that's way different from putting it in the footer - which was specifically stated as a do not do.

The tavern name generator, a popular portion of our town generator utility, has been made accessible through a direct link in the Armoury. Of course, it is still available within the town generator, but now, there is no longer a need to create an entire town, if all you want is a name for your inn or tavern.
