What is a fantasy world without its heroes? The life expectancy of an adventurer is improved astronomically by recruiting some allies to watch each other’s backs. When that happens, the result is an adventuring party.

Parties choose a name for themselves for many reasons, like needing a moniker to scribble down on a guild contract, or perhaps the arrogant belief their adventures will enter into legend. Either way, a name needs to be memorable.

Good Adventuring Party Names

The best party names emerge naturally from the adventurers’ exploits. A name might come from the party’s home region, a fierce monster they killed, or it could be named after a famous member.

I'm passionate about telling stories as a DM and I get a thrill from worldbuilding. Inviting players into these made up worlds that somehow still feel vibrant and alive is incredible, and Codex Nomina is a way to extend that invitation to more people.
