D0rfForge - a dwarven name generator
« on: April 30, 2019, 08:32:02 am »

New, Exciting Features!
  • Tired of thinking up names for all your dwarven babies? Just give 'em a random one! They won't know the difference anyway!
  • Do you want several babies all named Id? Well who wouldn't? Easily hold on to parts of a name and throw away the rest
  • Are the dwarf babies getting wise to your schemes and starting to tell the difference? Custom-tailor your names with several* naming pools that you can allow and forbid as you please
  • Are your babies starting to get spoiled and demanding ever more exotic names? Put those wriggly bastards in their place with an elven name!
Use it for your tabletop game or something, idk.
* more than seven.

        d0rfforge.com

Click part of the name to freeze that section and regenerate the rest!


Built in my spare time using Javascript on a React.js framework. It's true, I'm no good at styling. Adheres to the Dwarf Fortress naming algorithm as best I can tell. No backend functionality yet, but I plan to add many more features in the future. The end product should be able to generate !!forgotten beasts!!, artifacts, engravings, and epithets. Maybe a few other things if I don't get burned out by then. Any suggestions, comments, wishes, riddles, constructive/destructive/hateful criticism is welcome.

"Get Name" button does nothing for me. "Settings" works. Using browser Waterfox 56.2.9.

Reading his name would trigger it. Thinking of him would trigger it. No other circumstances would trigger it- it was strictly related to the concept of Bill Clinton entering the conscious mind.

Thanks very much. I'll look into getting that patched up
Same here.
Thanks for letting me know. Could you tell me your browser and OS so I can take a closer look at it?

All right you two. I found the issue and fixed it. I also got the sliders all gussied up on non-chrome browsers. Tested everything in Chrome, Firefox, Waterfox, Edge, and I tried to test it in IE, but the damn thing crashed before I could even load the page. :D

Now back to work on the FB generator.

EDIT: Actually, scratch that. I know exactly what's going on with IE. It's gonna take a bit of work to make IE happy. It probably won't work under Opera either. :/
