You Name It: Goblin Names & Chieftain Names

115392-thumb140[1]By Endzeitgeist

This installment of Abandoned Arts’  name-table-series is 3 pages long, 1 page front cover, 1 page SRD, 1 page content – so what do we get?

Essentially, we get 100 names for goblin males, 100 names for goblin females and 100 chieftain names. Male names include for example Digupp, Worble and similarly wonky-sounding names, whereas females get names à la Gretchok and chieftain names are established composites à la Wideears, Grasscrawler or Guntinker – nice.


Editing and formatting are top-notch, I didn’t notice any glitches. The pdf has no bookmarks, but being one page, it needs none. The names per se are awesome and thematically fitting – BUT: As before, I’m not a big fan of the layout – all three types of names are crammed into the same table, each type of name taking up two columns. Presentation-wise, that’s making the pdf look more jumbled than it ought to – just making breaks between the background-shading between the name-tables would go a long way there. Hence, I’ll give this a slight penalty in the presentation-department, resulting in a final verdict of 4.5 stars, still rounded up to 5 for the purpose of this platform, though.

Endzeitgeist out.
