"Go to the sign of Harvel's Axe, a dubious inn on the edge of the Thieves Quarter, in the City of Greyhawk, and look to your own wrist. If you perceive a bracelet and dangling dice, watch for the next throw in the war between Law and Chaos and be prepared to follow the compelling geas." -Signal

Judges Guild: Treasury of Archaic Names

From the web:

"This tome provides tables for random generation of olden names, nicknames, titles, town and tavern names for fantasy and science-fiction role-playing games.  The English language and its antecedents such as Celtic, Teutonic, Scandinavian, Latin and Greek tongues have been used as sources, so that name meanings would be on the fringes of the familiar and exotic simultaneously.  A good name will establish a character's personality or an inn's or village's atmosphere and history; it encourages a credible rapport and reminds players that all of the characters have a strong self-interest and identity in the game.  Forty-six pages of various tables are provided with extensive guidelines to their application.  The various tables provide 320,000 possible name combinations."
