About Us

I do stuff, so you can do more.

Mithril & Mages is a playground -- one with awesome toys. I write utilities -- things that allow others to be awesome. I call them inspiration generators. So many people get stuck on an idea and need a name, a pile of treasure or a monster to move them forward. This is my attempt to make that happen.

Random results are not an end-point. They are the end of a pier -- a place where you can untie from the dock and begin a journey. No matter if you are after a name or a pile of treasure, many unanswered questions remain. Who is this person? What befell the creature who left this treasure or are they still alive? Why does this set of monsters still retain control of this land?
