Hyborian Locations

BagoGames: “Conan Exiles” (CC BY 2.0)

If places such as an ophidian, beast-cursed port of reverie with a history lost in the mists of time are close to your heart, you may like this location description generator that owes so much to the works of Robert E. Howard, nowadays best known as the chronicler of a certain barbarian, thief, reaver and king.

The Detail button produces a brief portrayal, while Description spits out a whole sentence.

The place names are generated from syllables, and could still have some bumps ironed out. But I consider the lacking articles more troublesome, as the generator is not yet capable of inserting a suitable indefinite article.

It is not possible to specify subtables for generators embedded in the blog, but the source data for this generator is available in the GitHub repository. You can copy and paste the .json file contents into the Generator Service text box and start experimenting with the generator. Subtables can be specified in the resultPattern string.

If you are already using Campaign Logger, open one of your campaign logs, click the cogwheel-shaped Options button, select Manage Custom Generators, then Add new generator… and paste the generator data in the text box. After you save the generator, click the Show Generators button in your campaign log to access the new generator.
