Whew, sorry for the slow update. Got over my illness, but still had a busy week. So what’s up?
The Magical Guild Generator is done, and you can use it here.
For those of you not familiar with what inspired it, “Fairy Tail,” it’s an anime I’ve seen that a Sanctum user mentioned – specifically they wanted names of Guilds for wizards based on the series. In general I think a “band of magical people” generator is a good idea, so I decided to make a Guild generator for Wizards, but also generalize it a bit more to have a diverse set of naming patters.
The end result? I’d say pretty good. The names are usable in the majority of cases, and sometimes it gets really inspired stuff. I think I managed to use both the source material well and make a general generator.
There were also a few insights into language in this case – and for you language buffs, they were:
Now that you can go churn out Wizard guilds to your heart’s content, what’s next? Well I still have the list of what people requested, and a few personal things I want to try. But with skills re-primed, I think I want to do one of the writing-related requests, like plot twists or writing prompts.
Now I’m formatting a book – and of course always working on Way With Worlds, so as usual there’s no date. But I admit I’ve got some ideas . . .
