Unexpected source of nicknames


#1

I don’t know if this counts as a “Fan Creation”, it’s more of a resource I found:

I watched Adam Koebel play Fallout 2 (old vods), and there’s a few places there where you can earn a nickname. Since I happened to remember the dialogue files for Fo2 are actually posted on the wiki, I went and looked for them:
https://fallout.fandom.com/wiki/Newr1.msg

I used some online tools and search/replace in notepad to get rid of unwanted characters and got a pretty decent list of names
I’m gonna run a Glow in the Dark campaign so all my NPC’s might come from here :smile:

This is hilarious and awesome. A while back, there was a shadowrunner name generator… might have to go look that up again.

There are a billion name generators by now, but it’s sometimes nice with that hand-made touch :wink:

So this raises an interesting question about how you get that nickname. Dogs in the Vineyard does a neat trick where you end character creation with a little vignette about how you were finally inducted into the order of whatevers. Perhaps we may consider a similar vignette for the selection of a nick name? Thoughts and musings.
