nice

I've added some more... will add even more.  We're starting to get to the point that we have enough seed names for the Kazari to have very few repeats.  Some goofy ones, for sure, some werid ones... but a lot of really good stuff, IMO.

Fantastic!

Personally, I'm thrilled! I'm not even concerned with the generator kicking out the occassional goofy or weird name... I'm pretty sure that at least some kazari are goofy and or weird enough to have earned them!

hah

There are weird names in any generator that uses randomness to generate names.  I'm okay with that.  I personally just ask for 100 names at a time, then browse the page full.

surnames...

It's been asked of me if we want to provide realistic or fantasy type surnames for halflings.  I say that - much like we do with khords (dwarves), we need both.

Cidal surnames

Added a few in the "fantasy" category. Got a pretty decent list started for both sides of the naming conventions, though. I'll try and get some "realistic" ones added before the night is over.

But first... lemme take a selfie .  I mean, I need to make dinner!

Hmmmm...

Tried to test the Cidal name generator with surnames and got an overflow error... Did I do something wrong or is it due to the fact that I haven't entered any "realistic" names, yet?

I saw some errors in another test.  Let me look at what may be going on.

yep

I need to add the choice for realistic/fantasy to the halfling page, like we have for dwarves.  If we don't tell it that fantasy are okay, it looks for realistic only... and there are none.

Good deal!

Just wanted to make sure I didn't accidentally hose something. Didn't even think to look for "fantasy" vs "realistic" on the generator page. I'll get some "realistic" ones added as soon as I can.

yep

That defintiely works!

I do think that a few of the "Realistic" ones can be broken into two work parts so as to provide more possible outcomes.

Duly noted

I'm hoping to get a few more added at some point today. When I get to it, I'll be sure to "break things up" a bit.

well, rats

I added more fantasy-style cid names, and enabled them in the back end.  You can pick them now, but only realistic surnames work.  The fantasy ones just yield given names only.  Hrm.

bug

I have found the bug (as evidenced by my ugly debug text all over the page).  Now to figure out why it is happening, and to fix it.
