Humperdink, Humperdink, Humperdink!

Here’s a bit of advice for Dungeon Masters. When creating NPC’s names, say them out loud. If you can, give them to someone else to read. I may have to go back and change my primary mage’s name. The first time I heard a character say Fhakahn out loud I softly chuckled.

The same goes for place names within your campaign. In one of my older campaign settings, I came up with a nation I named Kaarhea. Looked good on paper, until I used the name in game which led to much laughter. 'kaa-ree-ah'. Yep, I named a make believe nation Korea. Ooops. The nation was soon renamed Khreara.
