Places need names. They might be small villages or mighty city-states – but all have their designations that ring in the hearts of their inhabitants, and often beyond.

In this work, we provide a random placename generation that have a distinct Greek flavour. Containing over 200 distinct name elements, the three charts in this work are capable of producing both real-world Greek placenames (e.g., Olympia; Rhodes; and Caryanda) and Greek-sounding locations, all rendered in the English alphabet.

To be clear from the outset, the author is not a native Greek speaker, but with classical training plus good research, coupled with an interest in toponymy, this generator can create names that have a Greek flavour to the English-speaker’s ear. The goal of this work is to present a quick way to generate names that all feel like they have a cultural connection – Greek in this case. We hope it gives playing groups narrative strength and memorable locations to play within.

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.
