This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.
NOTICE: Some online security services are reporting that information for a limited number of users from this site is for sale on the "dark web." As of right now, there is no direct evidence of this, but change your password just to be safe.

Old West - Wild West usefull lists (Help)
« on: September 10, 2021, 01:39:31 PM »
I'm working on a few d100 tables of names, last names and nicknames for an old west game.

The European names/last names are no issue, having trouble with the "native" ones and with the nicknames.

This is one I have used regularly as a source.  The site has a lot of other useful info about the tribes while still being easy to use.
The names in the lists are of the 'given' type that a parent would give to a child, but should be good enough for gaming purposes.

No problem.

I was not sure if you are looking for typical 19th century American nicknames or the Wild West style nicknames.

Here are some standard ones:  https://raogk.org/encyclopedia/nicknames/


And here are a couple of random name generators that I have used for lots of games.  Turns out they both have a Wild West category.

As for nicknames for any Banditos from your side of the border...I'll leave that to your expertise.  ;)

Thanks again! I've been working on the nicknames but after a while my brain refuses to work.
