Last Saturday I was invited to my friend’s place for dinner. It was a reunion of old pals from high school. There we enjoyed a lot and had a touch of nostalgia. But the party reached its highest peak when we decided to play the famous game Dungeons and Dragons, or DnD. We were obsessed with this game in school. We used to bunk classes to play this game too.
But when it came to choosing a DnD Dwarf name, my friends seemed clueless. They were out of practice for years. But luckily, I am still hanging in there. I suggested some dwarf names like Lorg the Thin, Dur Stwulfson, Orthr Vahk, and Orlen Gulgdirth.
Then they all asked me to choose their dwarfs’ names. I chose the names for them happily. And we continued playing the game. This triggered me to write a blog. I thought there are many people who might need names for their dwarfs in Dungeons and Dragons. So, here are the names!
