To Name a Few


Most of this zine is a transcription of the random name tables (humans only) printed in Xanathar's Guide to Everything. I wanted a small booklet I could carry anywhere, where I could scribble down notes about which NPC had been given what name, and not be too stressed about compared with an expensive hardcover book. I figured other people would also find such a booklet useful.

Even though the zine is free, I felt weird putting this out with no original material. So I've also included two new spells:

  • précis, a cantrip that lets you and a target learn how to properly communicate with and address each other
  • rename, a 3rd-level spell that changes the name of a willing creature and propagates knowledge of that change througout the multiverse.

Niche to be sure, but maybe they'll spark some fun in your game.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
