I've been working for some time on a RPG map that's set in a fantasy world, with the gates of hell unleashed and stuff like that.

My big dilemma is whether do I use made-up names (like Anatys, Ornon, Nakim, Jaheira) or existant names (like Gunther, Marduk, Locke, Kaleb) ?

What would you guys suggest ? If you would play a RPG map with the story NOT taken ... would you like to see some new but maybe lame names ? Or existant ones, just the names, not the characters they usually represent ?

It doesnt matter, as long as its a good one that fits the map style.
Also, wrong section >_>

It's about my map. I just didn't name it out loud, yet.

What section would've been better ?

I agree with Echo. As long as the game is good, then the names won't realy matter. i think there was a site where you can create names according to race. Like a name for an orc or an elf. I forgot the site though crazy.gif

Googling "fantasy names" will yield lists and name generators. So when I'll decide if I use made-up or known names, it'll be easy.

But I still haven't decided yet. 2 people said that it doesn't really matter. Any other opinions ?
