New skin for my website

In an effort to not look like I've learnt nothing in the last four years, I've reskinned my website. I don't kid myself that anyone actually wants to know this information, but by writing a post about it, in years to come I can find out when I released this particular version by looking at my blog. That's keeping some kind of digital timeline - the digital archivists would be proud.

Legend of the Five Rings name generator

I GM a Legend of the Five Rings game and I find coming up with names for the NPCs something of a trial at times. I found some decent lists of names, but what I really wanted was a tool to generate me 20 or so random names to just use.

Much like this one.

This goes with my roll and keep statistics toy from a while ago - built so I could learn roughly what adding an unkept dice would do to the skill checks of an NPC.

If you're interested, you can find the code for the name generator and the dice roller on github.
