Rename the MonkeyUC gear!!! (in Contests)


QBBarzooMonkey July 6 2006 3:23 PM EDT

On August 1st, the naming runs out on my UC gear:

Armor of #5 Toad [1] (+62) (Gi)
Cloak of #1 Centipede [4] (+9) (Elven Cloak)
Boots of #4 Lizard [10] (+24) (Elven Boots)
Gauntlets of #2 Snake [4] (+15) (Helm's Gauntlets)
Mask of #3 Scorpion [6] (+12) (Helm of Ecthelion)

Those names come from the Kung-Fu classic, "The Five Deadly Venoms". Since I've NCBed, and they are on a completely different character now, I want new names.

I have a 1 mil CB$ and 1 item of yours as the 6th item named(because I have to do namings in pairs) if you come up with a set of names that I use! Some rules:

1. I want to keep it themed, so I want a set of 5 names, not individual gear names. I'm not committed to any particular theme yet, and it DOES NOT have to be UC/martial arts related either, so if you come up with something you think is cool, run with it :)
2. Multiple entries allowed.
3. I will make my decision on August 1st.
4. I'm competing, too, so if I think up my own set of names, no one wins (but I'll roll the prize over into another contest).

Game on!!!

Gi: Chahar-aina: Also called "four mirror" body armour, this armour consisted of four metal plates strapped around the wearer's body: one on the back, one on the chest, and one on each side under the arms. Chahar-aina was usually worn to augment another suit of armour, often in conjunction with the khulah-kud (helmet), dastana (bracers), and shield.
EC: Poshteen: The Poshteen was not actually armour as such, but rather a heavy sheepskin coat with the fur on the inside to protect against cold. Such garments were worn by dwellers of the craggy hills and mountains, historically by Afghans.
EB: Barefoot or Calloused Soles or Rhino Skin Boots/Sandles
HG: Dastana: These were forearm guards, also called bazubands, typically a pair of hinged plates that fully encircled the arm with mittens of cloth or mail to protect the hands. Dastana were often worn with Chahar-aina;
HoE: Khulah-kud: The Persian influence on Indian armour is most apparent in this helmet. The khulah-kud is a round; domed helmet with a spike on top, a nose guard, and a pair of tubular supports for plumes a few inches to either side of the centre front of the helmet. A chain-mail neck guard sometimes hung from the back of the khulah-kud, and a turban was often wrapped around it.

If you don't recognise that theme then you don't know what you missed. My childhood wouldn't have been the same without a little "Monkey Magic" :)

QBJohnnywas July 7 2006 6:25 AM EDT

'In the worlds before Monkey, primal chaos reigned.
Heaven sought order.
But the phoenix can fly only when its feathers are grown.
The four worlds formed again and yet again,
As endless aeons wheeled and passed.
Time and the pure essences of Heaven,
the moisture of the Earth,
the powers of the sun and the moon
All worked upon a certain rock, old as creation.
And it became magically fertile.
That first egg was named "Thought".
Tathagata Buddha, the Father Buddha, said,
"With our thoughts, we make the world."
Elemental forces caused the egg to hatch.
From it then came a stone monkey.
The nature of Monkey was irrepressible!'

My childhood too!
