Random Things that a devil or demon might be called

These random things articles are designed as quick idea generators for time-pressed GMs who want to inject some additional details into their game. Demons and devils (especially powerful ones) cloak themselves in titles and pseudonyms to disguise their true name, lest other stumble onto it and gain power over them, this post gives you some ideas for creating these titles.

This post differs from previous ones in the series since it has three tables, you roll a D20 on each table and apply the results to the following formula/madlib to get your devil/demon name.

The [position] of the [description][place].

For example: I roll 3D20 and get 17, 1 and 10, looking on the chart below I can see that my demon refers to himself as Emperor of the Slime Prison.
