[PDF] Quick Generator – Fake Dinosaur Scientific Names

Quick Generator – Fake Dinosaur Scientific Names

Many times, all you need is a quick idea or a concept. Something to help spark your imagination or to just fill in the gaps. You don’t want a huge number of tables and need something reasonably quickly.

This is where the Quick Generator series comes in. The QG series from Ennead Games has, generally, no more than 2 x d100 tables, which can give you 10,000 possible combinations! Some of which may match up with existing ones.

This particular generator gives you fake scientific dinosaur names, along with the meaning of the words, translated from Greek or Latin.

Example output:
Name (rough translation)

  • Acanthoaetosauria (spiny – eagle)
  • Bellugallussaur (beautiful chicken)
  • Streptostruthio (reversed osterich)
