      Description

      Goal of the feature

      I heard a podcast where a GM indicated that he prepares a list of names for random NPC. The used names are crossed, and between session some new names will be added.

      Possible implementation

      To help do that I propose the following changes to the Random Name tab of GMGen:

      • Add a list of names. Items in the list can be removed, added with the name generator or added by hand. The list is kept in a file, probably a text file (or a LST), something that can be easily hand edited.
      • A button per line entry also to indicate that the item is used, maybe deleting the entry at some point.
      • Another button a allows the creation of a Notes using the name of the NPC as the title or filename of the Note. It would automatically change to the Note tab of GMGen.

      I think the list of Languages in the summary tab present a very similar interface to what I propose.

        I forgot that an import from a text file would be good too.

        This sounds like a new GMGen plugin which can use the random name generator, perhaps in bulk. I don;t think it will fit within the plugin now shared between pcgen and gmgen.
