Council of Underpanty Gnome Pirates

Via The Ancient Gaming Noob I found this guild name generator for World of Warcraft from PlayOn. Every time you refresh it, it gives you another 100 authentic sounding WoW guild names. I got the Council of Underpanty Gnome Pirates on the first try. :)

In fact the guys from PlayOn discovered that WoW guild names to 90% follow just 4 simple grammatical constructs. So after reading 22,000 guild names from 5 WoW servers [which in itself is news: Over 4,000 guilds per server? Astounding!], they had enough vocabulary to construct this guild name generator. This program must have secretly been around for years already, because I swear that half of the guild names on the servers I played on sounded as if they were created with this software. ;)
