Naming Creations

Recommended Posts

I am not fond of giving creations "names." It would be saying that I actually care about them, which is exactly the opposite of what I'm really trying to do.

 

So no, I don't name my creations.

Whenever I make creations, which is not often, I give them names. I play as a Shaper, but I usually just start out with one Fyora that I level up until it can handle on it's own. Then I make an Artilla or a Searing Artilla.

 

Think the last time I made a Fyora, its name was Hrath. I don't know where I got the name.

 

The Artillas I make usually have acid somewhere in their names, sometimes only the letters. Katanacid, Searcidth, etc.

 

The last Drayk I made had the name Sorath, maybe because it had wings.

I sometimes name my creations according to their perfomance on the field. If they did badly in their first fight i name them "loser" or "slacker" but if they do good then I give them postive names like "God of all" or let them keep their original names like they want.

 

Wait its not like you can talk or interact with your creations so why would you want to give them names anyway. huh o well.

Mine die too quickly, there's no reason to give them names. I basically use creations as cannon fodder.

 

Actually, come to think of it, I used to give them names before I realized how nice they work as cannon fodder. I always named my most powerful creation "Brutus", or "Brutilius", or something like that.

 

Why do you need to tell them apart, Drakey? Isn't the highlight thing good enough?

Uh, correct me if I'm wrong, but wouldn't "Godzilla" fit to a Drakon better than to a Fyora/Cryoa? :p

 

I just realized that this was GF 1, not GF 2. That is all.

It might, but the Fyora is so small and cute...

 

EDIT: Godzilla doesn't fly, actually, so I think it suits better to a fyora anyway

I always name my creations smile Naming them and keeping them alive is quite important to me. Naming them depends on my mood. Usually I give them cute finnish names. Some sort of virtualpet-syndrom I guess, lol.

You're really into this virtual-pet thing... :p

 

I sometimes name my creations. But only fancy names with "von" and "af", mind you.

 

TGM once told me that his clawbug was named...Edvard? Edmund? I can't quite remember. Anyway, that's about the coolest name you can give to a clawbug. No, seriously.

I have a problem that I treat my creations more as my compatriots than the cannon fodder they are. I always name them.

 

I give my creations names based on one of three things:

1. their species (artila=Shai'Hulud)

2. their master's name (master named Aragorn, creations named after hobbits)

3. if I have a few different species, I name each group after a duo or trio (my first fyoras were named Bill n' Ted, my artilas Jay and Silent Bob)

I always alliterate my creations' names with their species... and since the first time through G1 I kept the same creations all the way -- nothing died, nothing reabsorbed -- I became very fond of Fred the Fyora, Fud the Fyora, Dax the Drayk, and Chris the Clawbug.

Mine still don't have names. I don't know how you people keep them alive long enough for names to matter. If I named them, they'd probably end up being "Meatshield", "Minesweeper", "Bait", "Lure", etc.

I dont care for my creations. I hate them so much, I specifically make them for live bait. example: I made an artilla (usally pyroroamers), sent him on a little visit to my friend the battle beta's lol. so funny to watch him die without a fight (I hit spacebar to skip his turn).

As stupid as this may sound, i get so attatched to my first fyora, i cried when it got killed then wernt back to the autosave, losing all of my work in that area, which was a hard one, just to bring him back.

his name is crash

then i made a 2nd fyora to be his friend named burn

i also named my cyroa first blood

my roamer was roper (he was a texan)

after using the geneforge in one game, i made six drayks, dawning light and evening star, lucy and ricardo, castor and pullox

then, my absolute favorite creation other tan crash, and its a close second, my cyrodrayk, named, Lovely

That name cannot POSSIBLY be CoC-compliant. And reviving a topic when the last post in that topic said not to revive topics is, well, I'm not going to characterize it, but you see what I mean, hopefully.

 

Hmm. First post. I think you can be forgiven. Welcome to Spiderweb! Leave your sanity at the door!

I don't think it is, actually. Now if he did 'Drakefyre_', and imitated the signature, it would be another thing...

oh- sorry about that- raising the topic i mean, although i am not exactly sure what you mean when you say my name should not be CoC compliant- but then, i am new to these boards, so there are a few acronyms that are confusing me.

Come to think of it, this was not a bad topic to revive, of all topics. And you did contribute something new. Thus, no worries.

 

As for the CoC, it stands for the Code of Conduct. The admin of this board is named Drakefyre, and your name does bear a striking resemblance to his, although it would be rather hard to confuse the two of you, so it's probably not a big deal. Well, unless some mod tells you that it is.

 

EDIT: To return to the topic: in GF3, I'll probably name my drayk "Drakey."

Drakey. Drayk! Meanie, I've never gotten a Drayk before. My best creations are Cryoas and Fyoras

Colors.

Once, because I intended on killing and massacring them horrendously sending weak creations to the sudden death in an attempt to maturely deal with my everyday life frustrations I named them after the source of all evil (at least one type of evil): Chavez.

May he have an indigestion from rotten eggs.

 

Anyway.

Colors.

I name my Thahds after my history teacher. smile Though 'Dubya' has been a personal favorite for a time now.

 

My fyoras are usually named Mozilla, for reasons I myself don't know (I use Opera :p ).

Close enough.

 

If Drakey says nothing about draykfyre's name, then it's ok. The two are very easy to tell apart, and anyway, it's not like it's TGM.

 

EDIT: Aran, would you mind shortening the sig?

Yup, sorry, the joke got old. I'll change it back when I get home and can access my saved signature.

I always name my creations after my friends. Of course, after that, I could never absorb them. Well, actually, I couldn't anyway because I adopt my creations so I have more essence for Battle Magic. cool

I rarely name creations. If I ever get the urge to do so it's generally something mythological and cool-sounding. Like Ouroboros. Or Cerberus.

Before I knew about the Ornks, I named my first few Thads: Sirloin, Grade A Beef, Ground Chuck. Eventually, I realized that as a Shaper, my creations had to die,(due to pathfinding, or the fact that I would die if I so much as tripped), so I stopped naming them. If only their experience algorithm was adujsted to be independent of the player's level, I wouldn't feel they were so forgettable. The knowledge that my younger creations won't grow just because my Shaper's all grown up dissapoints me. The stronger I get, the less they are willing to learn.

I got some Ornks and I named them, Porky, Ham, and Sausage. And then the obvious happened. Thinking about their names made me hungry. And then.......

 

Oh wait that was G2.
