The shifter or "weretouched" is a humanoid race that spawns as a result of interbreeding between humans and lycanthropes. They are shapeshifters with variable alignments. At one point in time, they were feared just as much as lycanthropes were, because of an ill-advised belief that all lycanthropes were inherently evil. Since they were seen as outcasts, many of them were basically forced into a nomadic lifestyle, while others established their abode at the edges of civilization, coexisting with fishers, scouts, and hunters. This situation has caused some of them to become resentful and enroll in criminal activities, motivated by bloodlust, while others simply enjoyed the freedom they had from societal norms and standards, preferring to live a harmless adventurer's life.
Shifters are very free-spirited and independent, although some developed a very cloistered personality due to fear that their animalistic abilities could get out of control. Their aspect mixes human features with other bestial traits such as fur, claws, sharp teeth, and pointed ears. They're also a tad shorter than average humans, although they are usually heavy for their size, able to reach 180 lb. Moreover, they sport flat noses and very large eyes when compared with the average size of human eyes. From another race's perspective, they resemble humans more than beasts, although humans recognize them more by their differences than by their similarities. They are able to live as long as humans usually do and can adapt to virtually any environment in the material plane.
Shifters, in contrast to their lycanthrope ancestors, can't fully change their overall shape, but they're capable of briefly increasing their animal attributes, although not in the same proportion in every case. Thus, they began to be classified according to their specific ability. To give some examples: longtooth shifters were athletic and wise, razorclaw shifters had heightened perceptions, wildhunt shifters had an extraordinary sense of smell and increased resilience, and so on.

Dungeons & Dragons is a fantasy role-playing game, which takes you and your friends to the realms of battles and wizardry. Dungeons & Dragons, as the most popular tabletop game in the world, is driven by the creative minds of the players, where the only limitation is ones' imagination.
Players can create their personal characters and determine their abilities, which affects how they deal with creatures they might encounter while adventuring through the wondrous worlds.
When playing Dungeons & Dragons, one must not worry about winning or losing. The game has no general end, since campaigns - a storyline or set of adventures, could continue indefinitely. Therefore, a game could be going on for months or even years, leaving the players with an option to meet up whenever they like and take up the adventure where they left off. Even though the group might fall in the battles with invincible creatures, there can be no losers in the game. All players are considered winners, as long as everyone had fun creating unforgettable storylines and enduring experiences.
Considering that Dungeons & Dragons is a role-playing game, each player lies with a task to truly embody the character they are playing. The character that each player chooses, forms the essence of the game for them. To start off the character creation, it is wise for a player to acknowledge which kind of adventurer they want to portray. Considering this, a player should choose themselves a race, for example, a dwarf or a gnome, which is followed by a class, like a fighter or a barbarian. Each race has its own strengths and weaknesses, as well as racial traits.
Every player has the chance to demonstrate their imagination by choosing the name for their character. This might very well be one of the most important decisions one has to make in regards to the adventurer they like to portray. In D&D, the name gives other players an idea about the character's background, personality, and intentions. So selecting a name should not be taken lightly.
In this regard, we have wandered around uncountable realms, collecting information about Dungeons & Dragons naming conventions. Our mission is to lend a helping hand to players, when choosing the perfect D&D names feel overwhelming.
We have created over 60 Dungeons & Dragons name generators to cover both, player controlled and Dungeon Master controlled races and characters.

All of our names are randomly generated, taking into account each race's traditions and naming conventions, so there is an infinite number of totally unique names that you may generate.
Our Dungeons & Dragons name generators allow you to choose whether you would like to generate male, female, unisex, or clan names, if the race is known to have gender-specified names traditionally.
