In addition to the once per server rewards each character on an account may earn Turbine point favor rewards at the rate of 25 TP for every 100 favor earned.

Character Name Generator

Character Name Generator is a nice little tool I found that helps you think of a new characters name.  We all know how hard it is to think of a name only to find that someone else has already taken it!  So let this little tool help you out.

Designed for DDO, but can be used for any game or at least to get your brain thinking to help with the possibly frustrating naming process.  On Free to Play games, naming is a super son-of-a-whore.  So hope this helps.

Check out these cool Dragon Gift Ideas.
