Many folk like to reserve names, and I’m one of those foolish types who has trouble making up names quickly. Its the roleplayer in me that feels that a name is something that should either be unique, or impart something of the character.
There were so many names, even odd names that were taken, and almost every combination of Blood+blade, Doom+hammer, etc…was gone too. Kinda expected that given Nagrand has a reasonable population.
I’ve obviously been slow on the uptake. In no way will I have a character named Arthasz, Illadun, Thrallll type name. That stuff is (a) silly, (b) really unoriginal, and (c) been done to death, heated up, flogged, burnt, and burried permanently.
eg. The persons name might be Malecento (a made up name), or Dawnbringer, for what the person’s actions might have been.
In that vein I’ve taken on board all the “emo” thoughts of a hero who died in battle, and has been torn from death and conscripted into an unholy army (feel the emo yet?). You only get a few slots so it was hard to pick some.
Some name I’ve tagged on Nagrand:
– Decrepit, Devour, Defile, Vitiate, Raze, Mortigen, Frosthand, Pulverise (I know thats cheating due to the spelling, I’m an Australian).
Got yours yet?
