1,000,000 CBD contest (in Contests)

Conquest November 10 2008 1:23 AM EST

Simple contest here. Since my computer died earlier in the week and I bought a really nice new cpu I've decided to try out Warhammer Online. However, with a late start most of the names that I generally use for gaming have already been taken. So help me name my character - that won't be released until December 1st (class was not released with the initial launch). The link below provides a brief explanation of the Black Guard class and its role in the game.


First names and last names are acceptable as the game allows for surnames. Feel free to be as clever or silly as you like. I'll run this little "contest" for no less than one week and no more than two weeks. Good luck to those that decide to help me out. Thanks in advance.

Atrum Victor

Roughly translated, its something like "Dark Conqueror" in Latin.

How about... Gallus Domesticus? Or Gluteus Maximus? Since we seem to be going Latin here.

Keep in mind that as a late start common names are taken. Gonna have to be creative.

'nuff said.

OH! Also, if you're into star wars, here are a few:
Darth Revan
Darth Malak
Darth Vader
Exar Kun
Naga Sadow
Canderous Ordo
Bendak Starkiller
etc. etc.

wookieepedia FTW.

Hmmm... Dark Elf Halberdiers...

OK, how about:

"Eol", Tolkien's original "dark elf"

"Temeraire", from Charles le Temeraire, Duke of Burgundy, killed by a halberd

"Glaive", their weapons look more like glaives

RocknRave is always fun.

StrangerInTheNight is too.

Here is an introduction to my names to fulfill the wishes of the spell check.


I may have more, but I'm running low on ideas :(
I hope you have fun playing that game, I was thinking about buying it however I am a wow player.
And now I am typing for the spell check, hopefully this is enough words.
Well since it isn't I am typing another line to fix this problem.

try Ghend Nahgharash.

Potentially taken, but it's always nice to get a villain from a book...and I doubt anyone will have thought of it yet.

If I win, send my winnings to Gun.

Joker November 11 2008 2:09 AM EST

That's a really good book, but Nagharash wasn't a last name or anything.

That's a cool program. You can generate names from pretty much every civilization (real or imagined), AND, you can even generate Wookiee-based names.
Also, a great time waster. ;)

More villains from books.

Eridan Skullsunder

Erida was the greek goddess of hate, most people confuse her with Eris, goddess of discord. Eridan would be a slightly modified male form of that, and has the added benefit of sounding like "getting rid of" in English.
And Skullsunder, well, that is pretty damn self-explanatory, I guess.

P.S. I seriously doubt anybody would have picked that name already, so it all comes down on if you like it or not.

QBOddBird November 11 2008 12:34 PM EST

I know it DHJ, but there was never a last name specified.

[RX3]Cotillion November 11 2008 9:08 PM EST

Trull Sengar
T'rolbarahl or Dejim Nebrahl
Thelomen Toblakai or just Toblakai
Karsa Orlong

I'll try to think of some more later.

So, uh, who wins?

("Give a man a name, he'll be ...named... for a day, give a man a name generator, he'll be ...named... for life!")

Conquest November 18 2008 4:03 PM EST

Said I'd run it no less than 1 weeks and its been 1 week now. I'll decide shortly.

Sickone November 20 2008 5:23 PM EST

So... does "shortly" mean another week ? :)
