Anarchy Online - Dev Journal #4 @ Ten Ton Hammer

Nina Sund, Content Designer/Writer for Anarchy Online has posted a new developer diary at Ten Ton Hammer.

How do you name your NPCs/items/monsters/rewards?

Every NPC has a handcrafted name that's special in some way.
I like this question! First off, I want to say that I don’t use name generators and would never think of using them. Each NPC ends up being special to me and that means they must have names that are also special.

I usually name them after real people or use variations of real people’s names. For example, we often name NPCs after co-workers. Take "Corporal Morrison" after our Game Director, Craig Morrison, or "Dr. Aleksander Koumas" after one of the guys in QA. Just a few months ago I named an NPC "Heath Bridges" after the actor Heath Ledger, who sadly passed away recently.
