About Seventh Sanctum

OK, so what is this place?

Seventh Sanctum is a site that provides random generators to inspire people, help them name characters, design settings, etc. It comes from Steve Savage's continuing obsession of decades - how randomization produces creativity.

Who is Steven Savage?

Steve's an IT professional since 1995, who's been involved in all sorts of technology, creativity, conventions, writing, and more. Go and find out more about him on the Author Page or his website.

I'm Steve by the way, so I'm just going to go all first person on you now.

Can I use any of these results in my own work - paid or otherwise?

Yes. I make no claim of ownership over anything Produced by these generators. Roll up a bunch of results. Use them. Make a ton of money. Or use them in a fanfic or an RPG. Just remember it is possible for these generators to create things very close to existing properties others have created. Also a few of them work with existing properties anyway for humor or other purposes, so keep that in mind.

In short, if some idea you get from a generator here ends up as a published, professional work for money, it's yours. I have no claim on it. I can't own randomness and I do this page because I like helping people create.

Now if my site does help you get that million-dollar idea, I won't say no to credit or a nice gift. But no pressure ;)

Besides, these generators just help creativity. The creative action that turns a generator result into reality is yours.

Why did you make this?
I built this as a lark. I always made generators, got back to them when I was parodying anime attacks, and it just kept going.
You've been doing this since 1999?

I get a bit obsessed now and then.

Actually doing this helps keep my technical skills honed, teaches me about creativity, and lets me learn about language. Frankly it's been well worth it and then some - and I get to meet great people.
