Extra-Planar Entity Name Generator

Inspired by +Ralph Lovegrove's recent post on Stormbringer-style demons, here's a quick idea that really doesn't need to be a post.



  1. Roll 1d12.
  2. Blindly hit that number of keys on your keyboard.
  3. Write down a phonetic approximation of your keyboard-pecking.
  4. Edit to taste.
  5. Demons named!

Undersea Odd

The kid woke me up this morning, saying "Let's play D&D, but let's be sea creatures."

Okey-doke.


I asked him to make up a list of sea creatures he'd like to play (having no idea if he meant natural sea fauna, or mermen and sea serpents, or what), while I did a quick re-skinning of +Chris McDowall's  One-Page Edition of Into The Odd.

Here is the result:

Quick and dirty, but we were playing before the cereal got soggy, and that was good. Although, I think the kid would have appreciated more fights and treasure.
