Description Edit | History

Publisher's blurb:

The Name Machine

Suppose you have just created a character to play in a fantasy role playing game. Will you name her Mary or Jane or Kate? Would you call him Bill or Joe or Tom? Probably not. Instead, you might use a name from fantasy literature or invent an unusual name.

Here is a program that invents five-letter names and prints them on the screen. Each name consists of a consonant, vowel, consonant, vowel, consonant - all picked at random. Thus, possible names include ROKAN, BARAK, NINOS, KAREN, MABEL, even CONAN.

Gamemaster's Dice

Last time, we challenged you to write a program to roll N dice, each with S sides. In game jargon: NDS. Here is our first program a piece at a time.

User summary:

These simple programs are published as type-in source code (2 pages) in Atari BASIC, intended for Atari 8-bit systems. The article is included in Antic, Volume 2, Number 6, September 1983. The first program generates and displays simple names; the second rolls and displays dice values.
