Meet Expy The Red Dragon

Expy is the mascot for DungeonMastering.com and the real mastermind behind Expy Games. He likes to hoard treasure, terrorize neighbors, burn down villages, and tell white dragon jokes..

No matter how fearful the legends claim dragons are, they always end up being defeated in 5 rounds by adventuring parties they encounter. That’s what dragons are – experience points for the heroes in your Dungeons & Dragon party. And this mascot is no different, hence the name Expy.

    i tried the random name generator with devouring, seduction, and disgusting for word modifiers. Here’s what i got:

    Carnallust The Rancid
    Hungerpus The Beguiler
    Lovebelch The Eater
    Stenchpassion The All-devouring
    Stinkcharm The Seducer
    Stinklover The Hungry
    Stinkpus The Flatulent

  2. Phil Says:

    Man these sound like Fantasy STDs!


  3. Dave T. Game Says:

    “The Fantasy STD Generator” is an even weirder tool, and something that I even think the Book of Erotic Fantasy missed…

    …not that I’ve read it (cough cough)

  4. Yax Says:

    Can you name the villain in your campaign Hungerpus The Beguiler? I don’t think so. My players would make fun of it for years – unless it was meant to be funny.

  5. Fargalas Says:

    Evilspawn the Sorcerous.

    Err… That’s really threatening, I’m sure.

  6. sean Says:

    yeah i couldn’t realistically use any of those names. The evil name generator is a cool idea however it skews towards the side of humor. Don’t get me wrong humor is an essential element, but if the main villain in my campaign was stench passion the all devouring i don’t think i could take him serious.

    However, think about stench passion the all devouring. What would that be and how could it be cooler? Maybe an ooze dragon that dissolves organic material into a poisonous cloud that constantly surronds it and the cloud can dissolve things too. That covers stench, and all devouring. Its personality could be very passionate about consuming anything around it. Now it just needs a better name. The point is I think the generator works to start the wheels turning.

    Granted i am stretching it a little bit because i don’t think everyone would have this same approach. I sat there hitting the “generate names” for a while until i decided how i could make it work for me.

  7. Yax Says:

    Generator have that power over me too. I sit there hitting the submit button to see what comes up.

  9. Bartoneus Says:

    Random Name Generators are great when you just go through until you find some you like and pull them out, that’s how we ended up with the Halfling Paladin named Mimosa Hornblower!

    Sean: hahaha, watch out for Lovebelch the Eater!
