Re: Generating New Place Names

Okay I'll take a stab; Khulian, Elvish, Kakhabadian and Dwarfish? I especially like the Kakhabadian names. Do you have a web page you can put it on? I'd offer to add it to my online name generators but my freebie web hosting doesn't support CGI scripts. Bang on! Thanks! I don't have a website to ho...

This still puts the lair of the Snow Witch quite aways east of the Dragon Reaches.
On second thought, the distance from the Dragon Reaches to the Crystal Caves appears to be roughly the same as the distance from Blacksand to the Dragon Reaches, so it should be doable to include the Snow Witch.

Re: Night Dragon locations

can anyone tell me the locations of ... the giants' village... According to the Atlas the land of the frost giants is: "A day’s journey East of Ismater, into the high foothills that border the mountains, is the land of the Jublez, the Frost Giants. These fur-clad six-metre-tall behemoths herd goats...

Re: Night Dragon locations

The group of three towers standing behind a curtain wall are well guarded. From perusing the actual paragraphs in the Night Dragon book, it's clear that the three towers of Carnex are on the north side of town, inside the main town wall, but separated from the rest of the town by a curtain wall wit...

Re: Night Dragon locations

Here's the full Atlas entry for Ismater as well, if you'd like to compare them yourself: "The northwest track leads to Ismater, ‚the last civilized town in the Dragon Reaches.‛ It is 'a large village nestling in the foothills of the forbidding northern and eastern mountains; herders, fur-trappers, n...

Re: Night Dragon locations

Is there any description of Carnex? Because you say Ismater is the last civilised place and that Carnex is north of it, but then say Carnex is the main town. Or have I missed something? Nope that was my bad, I cut off the bit about Carnex while cutting and pasting, apparently! Here's the bit about ...

Re: Night Dragon locations

This is from "The Atlas of Titan": Marzail: "Heading north through Port Blacksand’s Weaver Gate, the Coast Road travels for many leagues beside the grey Western Ocean. 'Days of determined marching‛ will lead a traveller to the small village of Marzail, where there is a small inn that serves hot food...

Re: Generating New Place Names

Tolkien's elvish I can understand, it seems to be what most of the Elvish names from Titan are based on, but Latin? There's only a handful of (mostly Allansian) places that sound latin (Carsepolis, Salamonis etc...) Tolkien's elvish does seem a bit more "lyrical" than Titan's elvish though, there's ...

Generating New Place Names

Hey guys, I've written a simple proper noun Markov chain word generator script in python which takes a sample corpus and then produces similar sounding proper nouns. I've fed it with all the samples I could find in canon of Elvish, Dwarfish, Khulian and Kakhabadian, and had it produce 10 new example...

Re: King Kurad Dragonhelm of Warpstone?

Allansia, pg. 56. In the section on Dwarfish character backgrounds:

""An Allansian Dwarf is likely to come from one of the minor tribes, such as King Gilliban's from Stonebridge or Kurad Dragonhelm's from Warpstone."

Blacksand 2e Comments & Questions

Hey, I just recently bought all the 2e books (and pulled my 1e ones out of storage) and I wanted to make a few quick comments about 2e Blacksand. Overall I was pleased, I really like the naval stuff and town generation, and that the description of the city filled in some entries that were only named...

Upcoming AFF releases?

Hi all, Is there a comprehensive list of upcoming AFF titles that are "in the pipeline"? I've heard rumours of a third Out of the Pit installment, an Old World gazetteer and an Arion gazetteer, but I can't find any official listing of what's in development or coming down the pipe... The "News" forum...
