Don't think, just write is sometimes better.
I'm flushing out these story ideas. I hit points where I need names for things, like towns, monsters, currency, etc etc. Some thinking is required haha
Alright, here's my thinking about names:
Hmm, this character is a real weirdo, so he's weird or awkward. Hmm, Awk. Done. Next.
This guy is a black/ice mage. Can't make him obviously named according to that, but he's got a cool attitude. So he'll be called Chillin.
The city we're entering is a very crowded city and known for its wine. So Winn is a good start. There are also three known people. Let's swap a few letters... Winnthrei. No thinking necessary.
Good strategy, But now we've approached our different ways of problem solving things. I think about what music is going to be in the city, what kind of colors it has, is it darker, or more upbeat? Vivid, or more Grey in the palette. This character needs a name, It's comedic relief character but I don't want them to just look at them as a clown the whole game, So I need something slightly serious but weird.
I've got the names, for now, out of the way at least, So heeeey there's that!
Separate names with a comma.
