naming a character in Avernum

Recommended Posts

I go for names that are four characters or less usually, like Bob, Sue, Joe, Fred, Ed, Lily, etc. It's a holdover from my NES RPG days.

 

I also sometimes use silly names, like Chickie or Miss Sassy.

Well, seeing as it was a complete newbie which re-started up the topic I can't rant and rave, so I'll have to settle for joining in.

 

I play human characters only now, as I found a good team I liked in Avernum 1, and I decided to stick with them.

 

So, my characters are:

 

Micael

Helena

Arbok

Adriana

 

And we're nasty!...

Yea, I use Mycroft, Melissa, Philip and Kingy. 3 of those are the ones that are preset on one of the games and the last is me so I feel like I'm sort of in the game.

For humans, I use normal finnish names like Pekka, Kari, Arto, Jouko, Irene, Liisa etc. For nun-humans, I use, well, imaginative names. Like the-One-Who-Ate-the-Furball, Herra Lisko, Mad Scale and so on...

In reply to VCH, I just have to open my first ever E1 save game: John, Ariel, Nathan, Samantha, Allison, Erik.

 

Brings it all back... the sound effects in that game are, well dodgy.

I usually have my party's names Jerry, Jessica, Nick, and Michelle. But when I played Exile 3, I used these names, can you figure where I got them?

Giles

Willow wink

Let's see... I think I had something like this back in A3:

 

Zev (human mage)

Emerald (human priest)

Beryl (nephil rogue/archer)

Elerion (human fighter)

 

And then, a party of druids for BoA:

Roughscale (slith fighter-priest)

Longclaw (nephil rogue-archer-priest)

Bronzeleaf (human priest-fighter)

Magnolia (human priest)

 

Another BoA party:

Karhallarn (human berserking-halberd-wielding-priest)

Oryhara (human rogue-archer-mage)

Pinebranch (human priest)

Zev (human mage-archer)

 

Main BoA party:

Elerion (human fighter-priest)

Beryl (nephil rogue-archer-mage)

Ephesos (human mage)

Lisscha (slith priest-fighter)

 

A bit overlap between the parties.

I use only humans, most of the time. Most of my naming scheme revolves around "what has a ring to it?"

 

Main BOA party:

Vilenus

Lumara

Tabitha

Valgo

 

Roman party:

Septimus

Sabunus

Laetima

Aurelia

 

A1 party:

Suralin

Mulita

Koben

Dierdre

 

A3 parties:

Mulita again

Delir

Paliir

Tulir (yes, the three of them are brothers)

 

Melkor

Murrar

Eiyosa

Prolus

I often make up random names, such as "Ramiya Pyrope" for a woman in the original Avernum. They seem have elements of whatever I'm doing at the time; "Pyrope" may have come "pyrite," and I was volunteering at the mineralogy section of a museum at the time.

Names I use are from David Eddings books. (Any of you read them)

 

For Singleton's I use Kal-Torak , and for other party configurations, I use the other main characters like Aldur, Zandramas, Barak, Nahaz

Change all the ssss's in any random Slith's name to rrrrrr's, add a few m's and w's, stir well, and bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes. (Serves four).

My first charac is allways a Nephil named Retrency (and in the first avernum retrency is covered with bandelets, so that noone can know he is a nephil), the second is always named thissa like the normal one and then I usually take celali(a priest) or jade(a nephil thieve priest) and the last one is always Mellia(amage or priest-alchemist-mage (that have all her spells at level 45!!!))
