Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What is The New Forge?
A: The New Forge is a fantasy name generator (more commonly known as a random name generator) designed to help kindle your imagination for all your creative endeavors. The New Forge creates two-word combinations from a massive database, which you can edit on the fly by changing single words, writing in new words, and a host of other options. Think of it like a mixture of a word-processor and photoshop – but for your ideas.
Q: How much a subscription cost?
A: Nothing! The New Forge and its updates are completely free to use. We rely on the generous support of our users through Patreon to cover expenses, and encourage everyone to be a part of this incredible journey. We accept donations monthly, as well as showcase monthly rewards to our benefactors. But whether we’ve just released or put the finishing touches on a blacksmith name generator, this name generator will always be free for you.
Q: My Chrome browser says Flash is blocked. How do I fix this?
A: Allowing Chrome to show Flash is very easy. Please follow the instructions on this page.
Q: What does Patreon support get me?
A: We have 5 levels of Patronage in The New Forge. Levels 2-5 are rewarded by having their names listed in our Patreon page as well as on the front page. Levels 3-5 can have the Patron pick a number of their Forge-created words to accompany their name! Higher levels of Patronage allow for a even greater number of creations to be committed next to your name. The absolute highest tier will have their name and creations not only on this site, but emblazoned on the main menu of the app itself! You will become a living legend for everyone to see!
