Names – Ep60

... and I shall name him... RICK!!

Like the perfect ascot (or other necessary accessory) brings an outfit together, the name you give a character can complete them in a way that the total package is memorable for years to come. The reverse of that, the wrong name can ruin even the most brilliantly planned and rounded character.

 

We discuss some the naming conventions that we have used in the past and some that we plan to use in the future.

    The Halfling naming convention you guys mention is a great idea. I’m going to have to use it!

      I can’t get enough of that system. I wish I played more halflings. 😛
