Drums in the Deep

I have resolved to focus on one personal project this year, and have chosen to go back to Dungeon Delving in Middle Earth. I am digging out my notes and working on a character creation pdf, though I am changing the name to "Drums in the Deep". 

Today I was thinking of articles I could write to support this, and one of those is the idea of playing as Orcs - always fun taking a turn as the bad guys. So, I have churned out a quick name generator that should give an ok sounding orc name. Roll a couple of d20's and name that orc!
