Dwarven nametag

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!

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
Sun(ny) Stream
Moon Point
Arrow Isle
“Tree type” Meadow
Silver Ward
Dark/Light Woods
Black/White Falls
Crown Mere
Hollow Shire
“Animal” Ville
Sleek City
“Season” Forest
Vale Hollow
Claw Bay
“Flower type” Burg
High/Low State
New/Old Side
Storm Mountain
Kings Hill
“Emotion” County

You can print out the following list of first names so you always have some fantasy names handy when you need them. Don’t forget to jot them down for future reference!
