A Cursed Helm: 37 days (in Contests)

A Cursed Helm [9] (+20) (Helm of Durin) 37 days

Well this Rusty bucket I've slapped on my tanks head (it doesn't even glow or anything, it just keeps his brain inside his head) is going to need renaming soon, and I'm taking suggestions. 100k to the winnah, decided on Saturday after the cache flush.

I am a Mess [20] (+47) (Mithril Shield) is also getting renamed, but will likely just loose the M for an m unless someone trumps the mighty Freed's choice of names, sadly I'm poo (can't afford the r even) so you get no money if I pilfer a name suggestion for it from you.

a radiant helm

Just for theme ideas, I've only actually named two of my items, the Gloaming Mantle, and the +5 Chain Mail Loincloth. D-n-D themed names are somewhat encouraged, however creativity rules and will likely win!

I think it'd be awesome if you just named it "A Rusty Bucket"

That would be amazing.

an Ettercap Shell Helm
Superman's Glasses (the ones that turn him into Clark Kent)
An Itchy Antbed on my Head
Helm of Mind Control
Rub a Dub Dub (and then rename the MS Three Men in a Tub) (though that whole rhyme is extremely disturbing to me)

I'll think of more later when it isn't midnight.

A "Brain Bucket" is a popular term for a helmet.

AdminNightStrike July 15 2006 2:09 AM EDT

Oh, also, you could call it some derivation of a Kaiser Helmet, or a Kaiser Spiked Helmet. For you non-history buffs out there, it's the helmets that the Germans wore in WWI that caused them to lose much of their forces. Opponents could see the spike pop out of a foxhole before the rest of the head, and they wound up quite dead. It was very ineffective, to go along with your theme of being cursed.

Eventually, the germans snapped off all the spikes so they could survive in battle.

"Protector from Brain-Eating-Zombies"
Or "Thank me when zombies don't eat your brains" (if it fits, Family Guy reference)
Or perhaps "Stopper of Brain-Eating-Zombies"

IDK, I just had zombies on the brain tonight. Good luck choosing a name!
