Random Demon Name Generator – Least and Lesser Demons (version 1)

28 June, 2011

Finally had an idea for a random generator.  The demon names in most popular fantasy RPGs are rather dull, I like the crazy sorts of demon names you see in HK Action films (and Shadowfist) like Seven Evils, the Eater of Fortune and Four Burning Fists.  So, the following generator is suppose to generate those sort of wired descriptive names, now this is 1- the first version and using only initial thoughts ripped from my own mind, 2- the weakest demons (so there names do not get to be all that cool).  If people like this and I get inspired, I will move up through the ranks of demonic being and wrap it all up into a PDF at the end.  So, feedback and suggestions welcome!

Let us give it a try, instead of a dretch, we have a least demon: rolls a D4 = 3, [C] [A] of  [B], so table C, descriptor roll D8 = 3, Corrupted, on Table A the D20 = 10, Slave and the Aspect D8 =2, so instead we have a Corrupted Slave of Darkness!  Nifty.

Now, for a lesser demon, rather than a rutterkin:  D12 roll = 6, [D] of [E], simple, rolling on Title table D, the D10 = 4, Hunter/Stalker and the Aspect from table E, D10 roll = 7, (Eternal) Night, so we have a Stalker of Eternal Night.  That sounds pretty cool too.
