So your PCs have wandered into a nearby town. Perhaps they are relaxing in the tavern talking with the locals, haggling with a merchant or trying to gather information about a nearby ruin from a sage. Then they ask “so what’s the elf called, anyway?” At this point, the GM normally uses the first name that pops into his head (probably “Bob,” or the one he used minutes ago for another NPC) crushing the players’ suspension of disbelief.

So What’s the Demi-Human Called, Anyway? banishes this problems by providing 500 first names and 250 family names and nicknames for dwarves, elves, halflings, gnomes, and half-orc characters. Divided by race, these handy tables enables the busy GM to generate literally thousands of unique names for use in his campaign. Players can also use the tables herein to create cool names for their PCs that suit the background and flavour of their GM’s campaign.

Nice collection of Demi-human names

*****

This pdf is 13 pages long, 1 page front cover, 1 page advertisement, 2 pages editorial, 1 page ToC/foreword, 1 page SRD and 1 page back cover, leaving 6 pages of content, so let's check this out!

Dwarves get 50 male and female names as well as 50 clan names that feel appropriately gruff and consistent. Elves also get 50 male and female names as well as 50 family names that feel sufficiently fey. Gnomes also get clan names and, again, the list feels consistent in nomenclature. The halfling list utilizes family names like "Silverleaf" or "Bigbelly", which may or may not fit your tastes. Half-orcish names also are provided, feel rough and come with a table of nicknames like "mad" or "merciless".

The pdf closes with one list of ready, generated names.

Conclusion:
Editing and formatting are top-notch, I didn't notice any glitches. Layout provides 3 tables per page, collecting all of one race's respective tables in one page. The pdf comes with bookmarks. This pdf does exactly what one would expect - provide a lot of demi-human names. While personally, I prefer to make names reflect linguistic peculiarities of the respective racial tongues, this pdf is consistent in the nomenclatures, provides interesting names and delivers exactly what it promised to do. Thus I'll settle for a final verdict of 5 stars.

Endzeitgeist out.
