Fun & Games - Fantasy Names

Description: Fantasy Names 1.3 is a Dashboard widget for Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger. Its primary purpose is to help writers and roleplaying gamers come up with names for characters and places in their writing or gaming sessions. It generates random names of dwarves, elves, taverns, towns, and more. You can then copy the name (using Command+C) and paste it into TextEdit, Microsoft Word, or whatever else you are writing in.

Cool widget. Excellent idea to have as an easily accessible tool. The layout on the back is a bit squeezed. Some of the text gets overlayed with buttons, but otherwise, rockin'!

Sorry about the text on the back. I used an odd font, so people who don't have it get that effect. I have posted an updated version on my website (available by clicking the link on the back of the widget) that fixes the problem. I will post it here ASAP.

Fantastic idea! Love it! Someone should cook up some widgets for the open-source info from d20 systems (random magic items, monsters, etc).

I'm looking into it, but I'd love to see what others come up with too.

Nice widget, very innovative. Could you update your version number so that it is compatible with Widget Updater?

What's "Widget Updater"? I guess the answer is "no" for right now because I'm not sure what that is.

OK, I think I figured out the Widget Update thing. The version number is correct in the info.plist file as of version 1.2.
