Dwarf name generator/language translator
« on: April 25, 2012, 02:44:34 am »

Is there any such program out there that spits out random dwarf names or translates words to English (and viceversa) out of the DF raws?

This site will translate from english to dwarf and back again, but it's usually faster just to use the find command on the language files most times.

It would be brutally difficult and probably won't work. In other words, it's absolutely dwarven!

Replace language_DWARF.txt with this:

Then just make a bunch of dwarves.

Well, yeah, but you don't really get random names, and they don't quite follow the grammatical naming rules and stuff :P
