This pdf from Raging Swan Press is 13 pages long, 1 page front cover, 1 page advertisement, 2 pages editorial, 1 page ToC/foreword, 1 page SRD and 1 page back cover, leaving 6 pages of content, so let’s check this out!
Dwarves get 50 male and female names as well as 50 clan names that feel appropriately gruff and consistent. Elves also get 50 male and female names as well as 50 family names that feel sufficiently fey. Gnomes also get clan names and, again, the list feels consistent in nomenclature. The halfling list utilizes family names like “Silverleaf” or “Bigbelly”, which may or may not fit your tastes. Half-orcish names also are provided, feel rough and come with a table of nicknames like “mad” or “merciless”.
The pdf closes with one list of ready, generated names.
Editing and formatting are top-notch, I didn’t notice any glitches. Layout provides 3 tables per page, collecting all of one race’s respective tables in one page. The pdf comes with bookmarks. This pdf does exactly what one would expect – provide a lot of demi-human names. While personally, I prefer to make names reflect linguistic peculiarities of the respective racial tongues, this pdf is consistent in the nomenclatures, provides interesting names and delivers exactly what it promised to do. Thus I’ll settle for a final verdict of 5 stars.
So What’s The Demi-Human Called, Anyway? is available from:
