Random Tavern Names

Last weekend I decided to try my hand at making a tavern name generation table. Well, it actually consists of three tables. Is that too complicated to use outside of a computer application? What is too complex for dice tables? I don't know the answer to that, but maybe you do. Let me know in the comments.

I had a good time making this and combing adjectives and nouns that I thought could be fun. I looked at a lot of traditional English pub names for inspiration (which was also fun). I am thinking about following up with some tables for finding out more stuff about the tavern. Things like rumours, house special, quality of accommodations and other customers. I don't think I will need two d100 tables to make those work. I didn't really need them for this one, but I just couldn't fit all the words I wanted on d66.

Random Tavern Name

  1. Roll d100. If result is even roll once on the Table 1 and add to name, else proceed to 3.
  2. Roll d100 on Table 2 and add result to name.
  3. Roll d100 on Table 3, if result 1-60 then continue to 5.
  4. Roll d100. If result is even roll once more on Table 1 and add to name, else continue to 6.
  5. Roll d100 on table 2 and add result to name.
  6. Add "The", "Ye", "Inn", "Pub" and similar words to taste.
