Crowdsourced a dataset of D&D character names for training a neural network.
I think it captured the spirit of these.

One thing I like is all the new D&D character races and classes that the neural network invented.

The neural network is REALLY good at these Cumberbatch-esque D&D character names.

I also posted a giant export of more generated names. Someone pointed out it contains the following:
The Bard - Human Wizard
