The Black City: Viking Names on the Fly


Keeping up the toolkit spirit of the past few posts, here's a list of Viking styled names for generating NPC's on the fly.  For names without a surname, you can either add a quick moniker (Alfgeir would be Alfgeir the Proud, for instance); roll again to find a father's name - Alfgeir would become Alfgeir Amundson if Amund was the second roll; or pick a suitable location - Alfgeir of Zealand.  Voila - instant Viking name.

I have some ship names, adventuring party names, and female names in the queue.
