Fantasy GM tip: 100% definitely do let a neural network name your next inn.

I’m a follower of the lewisandquark blog, which is an intermittent dose of hilarity in which a neural network is trained to produce something like English – Harry Potter fanfic titles, death metal band names, new color names – and the blogger samples some of the best and worst results on our behalf.

A recent post was about pub names, and they’re just awesome. From “King Brad Inn” to “Rey Ofe White Bear Pivsing Jambork Hotel,” they’re very consistently a set of winners that would add massive color to any fantasy gaming setting.

Do your players want to drop serious coin on respectable accommodations? They can try the “Green Head Hotel.” Or perhaps they’re investigating a Gothic mystery and need to lodge at “Torn House Inn.” Or perhaps they’re on a diplomatic mission in goblin country and the only thing that doesn’t smell like a pig colon is the high garret at “Garled Blorge.”

Use them. Use them all! And for any party brave enough to spend the night at “Tivern” or “Moldy Goine” or “Old Hell Kick,” maybe reward them with a brand new spell chosen from this list here.

About Confanity

I love the written word more than anything else I've had the chance to work with. I'm back in the States from Japan for grad school, but still studying Japanese with the hope of becoming a translator -- or writer, or even teacher -- as long as it's something language-related.
