Verdan Name Generator & Guide

“Careful, some strange things have been coming from the Underdark recently.” As two men inch closer to the cavern, they see it, a strange green half-elf? “Hello, it seems I’ve made it up.” The men stare bewildered, “Yes, sorry, I am Mikhew, and I’m not sure how I got here, but I can tell you I’m a Verdan… whatever that is.”

The Verdan have been touched by That-Which-Endures. Once Goblins, they mutated into new beings that fled the underground and went into the light. Often they are compared to half-elves despite their green skin. Consistency is not something that can be seen among adult Verdans because their appearance undergoes drastic mutations regularly.

Verdans are often known as drifters with no community or history. When they first emerged from the Goblins caverns, they were quick to assimilate into whatever communities were nearby. For example, a Verdan who emerged near a misty forest may find themselves attempting to be part of a community of wood elves.

Verdans all speak goblin as a remnant of what they once were. However, due to the mutations causing them to forget their origins, they find the language abhorrent, but keep it out of a sense of unity between them. If a Verdan chooses to live somewhere for a notable amount of time, then they will often adopt the local language.
