I'm building the sites random name generators this week guys.

To start with we're going to have a seperate one for Space Marines Chapters and another one for Chaos Legions.

I'm not sure on the other races atm. If you think it could be done for tau, eldar, orks or any other playable race let me know.


All we need are prefixes and suffixes. First and second words.

Ie


Blood Angels

Post your submissions here please guys. If we collectively build this thing it'll be the most concise online.

Got no actual names right now, just a few ideas. In no real order:

1) There was a list of stuff to use in SM names in a Chapter Approved article that made it into one of the collections we could nab quite easily.

2) Tau should be the easiest of the xeno races to make a generator for, I seem to remember there being a reasonably comprehensive vocabulary in one of the codexes. Also theres the option of doing two here, one in Tau and one for what they call the army for propaganda purposes.

3) Eldar: doable, but not making the names a) too unwieldy or b) too elvish could be hard. Theres a bunch of Eldar language in the Apocalypse book, but I've misplaced my copy so can't give examples right now.

4) Orks: make the generator for the Warbosses names, since the Waagh takes the name from the Warboss.

5) Dark Eldar: easily doable. Possibly split it, one for Kabals and one for Wych Cults?

6) Tyranids: Just stick every big mythological thing/old word for 'large' in there and it'll be pretty much covered.

Thats pretty much my ideas for how to do them.

Great suggestions thanks.

Its only possible with this script to have a random first and second word. Which puts names like The Shamed and Protectectors of the Damned out of the frame until I can figure out a way to enhance this script.

Cheers :good:

There was a random ork name generator in the back of one of the original Ork books.

In a bored moment I created a little VB6 app that used it. I can post up the random table selection & code if you want?

Ok, Chaos ideas...

Reavers
Scourge/Scourged
Purgators
Flay/Flayed/Flayers
Dark
Cabal
Sedition?

As for whats in there at the moment, lose Psi, Ozone and some of the stupider animals that we already mentioned in the shoutbox, and it's looking pretty good.

I've figured out how to add fixed words to the output box.

This'll mean we'll be able to add extra name types, ie

(Random1) of (Random2)

Warriors Of Bronze

(Random1) of the (Random2)

Swords Of Justice

and even a generate button for a different 2 string set of words that can't be integrated with the first one.

(Random1) (Random2)

Knights Templar
Angels Encarmine

I like the word Teeth as well as Fangs for both prefixes and suffixes.

"Teeth of Demons" or "Iron Teeth"

especially for Chaos, I guess...

Horned Riders

First name I got for Chaos legion.

Maybe change it so that that won't happen as all of the teenagers who see that (including me) will giggle. Trust me. Good otherwise!

i see you have added Dark Eldar that's cool.

it works well is it possbile for the Space marines and choa that you can get "of the" in there of would that take up to much?

what other races etc you planning on having?

I havent started those ones yet. All I did was put the Marine data in to the fields, same with one of the Dark Eldar ones.

You can use "of the" in the "of" field box simply by using words prefixed with "the"

ie

(Knights) of (the realm)
(Angels) of (the apocalypse)

these could also go with

(Knights) of (darkness)
(Angels) of (steel)


There are infinite possibilities. I just need words to put in and ideas for additional string types.
