Fantasy names cheat-sheet

    During adventures your players might ask for the names of faraway towns and cities or of some random stranger they meet on the streets. As the Dungeon Master you can’t have EVERYTHING in the world all fleshed out, so it might come in handy to have a little cheat-sheet from which you can take these names. Don’t worry, I got your back!

    Creating town names

    For easy custom location names you can combine any of the following words. This gives you as the Dungeon Master a simpler way of filling your world and giving it color.

    Gold(en) Haven
    Hope Valley
    Stone Port
    Hammer Dale
    “Color” Farm
    Heart Clearing
