Is “character creator” not just another term for a fiction writer? No it’s not nobody says that
ANYWAY I’ve been thinking a bit about names lately. One good bit about being trans is that you have a strong impetus to think about names, what name you want for yourself, etc. Of course, anyone can just change their name if they want, but transition is a pretty clean reason. I spent a lot of time poking at and picking my name. Naturally, naming things is hard no matter what, but with that context I at least feel alright about putting together people names. But I struggle with place names. There are a bunch in Vapormage that I’m not happy with, with names pulled straight from cosmic geography (valles on Mars or plains of Venus, for example), and after watching some YouTube videos on the topic… yeah I’m gonna want to rename them. My current names are kinda lazy, and everyone deserves a good name, even a place.
