5 Photo Challenges for September 2017!

5 Photo Challenges for September

Anyone who’s followed me on instagram for a while will know that I love photo challenges, unfortunately, they’re not something I always have time for 🙁 That doesn’t mean I can’t live vicariously through you guys though! 😉 So this week for Sharing Saturday I’m sharing 5 challenges people have put together for the month of September! Don’t be put off by it being the 9th day already, there’s nothing stopping you from jumping in now or catching up by back posting! Most of these sites/accounts have one each month so if September’s too busy or you want to start from the beginning just follow their accounts and hang on until October for a new challenge 🙂

The great thing about challenges is that you can do them at any time; while it’s fun to do them alongside other people, you can take inspiration from old challenges too! Head over to my pinterest board to find a bunch of old ones that I’ve stockpiled! ((Banner image from Public Domain Images.))

Your Thoughts

I noticed in my hunt that poor Draenei are one of the most under presented races when it comes to World of Warcraft products. Do you have any Draenei products to share? Would you like to see other race and/or class specific products? Let me know in the comments!

My Favourite World of Warcraft Art

My Favourite World of Warcraft Art

I was supposed to be rounding off the week of World of Warcraft on a more serious note with ‘Why I always report harassment in Games & why you should too’ and while I do still intend to write that post, now doesn’t seem the right time. I’ve been celebrating a game I love, and dipping into the darker and more childish side of trolls and harassment just doesn’t have the same vibe. So instead I’m joining my final post with Sharing Saturday, and sharing with you my favourite World of Warcraft art. This includes a variety of sources; official art, fan art, trading card art and some art from Blizzard’s online card game Hearthstone.

I’ve done several World of Warcraft themed Sharing Saturdays before that might also interest you!

If you are the artist and want your work removed please leave me a comment.

This is probably obvious, but: this post is very image heavy.

5 of My Favourite Name Resources

Whether you’re a gamer, a writer or a roleplayer, names can be an important part of your character creation. Over the years as I’ve graduated from roleplayer to gamer and then onto writer I’ve grown a collection of go to generators and resources for finding names. Here are some of my favourite ones!

 

Dog Names by Low Chen Australia

Dog Names by Low Chen Australia

Yep, that says dog names, you’re not mistaken. It has an absolutely amazing list of different names, from characters, to mythology to countries. It has so much variety that it makes it great for everything you might need a name for!

 

 

Behind the Name

Behind the Name

I love this site and it’s sister site for surnames because of it’s diversity and how easy it is to search or narrow down categories. It has a great selection and has resulted in many of my character’s names over the years!

 

 

God Checker.com

God Checker

I absolutely adore this site and use it all the time for naming my World of Warcraft battle pets. It has all the pantheons you can think of and then some – and unlike most mythological lists it doesn’t just list the main/popular deities. It lists them all, big or small, including spirits and other mythological creatures.

 

 

Fantasy Name Generators

Fantasy Name Generators

This has been my go to site for Star Wars and World of Warcraft names for years, and it has grown into a huge site with tonnes of generators. There’s pretty much every video game you can imagine, DnD, pop culture, lists of creature names and even one for weapons! This is a must have bookmark for any gamer.

 

 

Elvish Names List

Elvish Names List

As a part of Arwen-Undomiel.com, this section of the site has a list of male and female English names translated into Elvish. It’s a great way to come up with new character names, especially for fantasy stories and games. Mine, Heather, is Lothiriel 🙂

 

I hope you’ve enjoyed this list and found some useful resources! Do you use name generators? Have any to share? Let me know!
