I got all the names I wanted.

Star
Starscream
Negative
Psi
Psych

I will be reserving these if for no other reason than a possible server merge in the future. I'll likely try out cannith eventually, though it would be sooner if we could buy 32pters.

Got 10 very good names ... and several guild names
Honestly, why take guild names you have no intention of using? Really? Just to be spiteful?

Character names that mean something to you, fair play.

Guild names just to tick off people that the guild name means something to? That's just mean spirited.

The only names I snagged when I logged in this morning that could possibly even be wanted by others were:

Jon (Irenicus) - Wizard
Irenicus - Sorc

Even so I doubt I ruined someones day, but I could be wrong.

Mockduck

I was sick of lame names, so when I woke up this morning and logged on I was surprised that the servers were up.

I create names that I've always wanted and got the following for each of the classes I wanted to play.

Equinox - Wizard I think, might go FS
Nemesis - Fighter class - TBD
Umbra - Rogue
Mystic - Spellcaster TBD
Kungfu - Monk
Requiem - Bard

Which was much better than I'd previously had luck with in DDO, but characters I play in LoTRO, so I guess it was all timing.

Hope others got what they wanted too!

HUM..... Now I find myself wondering if these 2 posts could somehow be related? :rolleyes:

Regardless whoever you are you should give mock his name back.

I did not take any names to be a jerk and **** someone off. Gotta read between the lines on the previous post. I took some names that I wanted that Im sure were taken 1 week after beta started. As for the guild names they were names for guilds I may start but wanted to make sure I could get them. These were not of known guilds either.

The part about ****ing people off was related to how I logged into Cannith right after the servers came up and snagged the names right away so it was first come first serve. Im sure some people were doing the same and I snagged a few names that alot of people probablty wanted to get. :cool::p

Some wanna-be uber elite player took Torche on Cannith.

You may get a lot less bang for your buck than you expected.... :(

Assuming Torch was taken, Torche is a pretty common second step. Chances are it was some guy making a fire-specced sorc who wanted Torch, but couldn't get it, and has no idea who you are.

I held a vigil for the game and even put my pillow down where I could sorta sleep and still see the monitor. As soon as the worlds started coming up I got on and snagged as many names as I could from my old PnP days.

I just created, named and went on without even worrying about class, gender, etc. So, almost all of these are female fighters with whatever the default path is. That, of course, will change. All of them are sitting just waiting until I unlock 32 point builds except one -- which is waiting on drow -- and one other that is my grind for favor character.

So, here goes:

Alaric Rhys Morgan -- My first ever D&D character who made the transition with me to AD&D, will be a ranger
Ian Royce McAlyster -- My longest actively played AD&D character, will be a paladin
Caleb ben Ruben -- My first 2nd edition ranger, will be a ranger
Loren ben Uller -- My first cavalier, will be a fighter; too bad we don't have mounts and lances in DDO
Cratesmasher Slayer of Clay Jars -- That's me, :D
Farfindal Durinson -- Originally Alaric's henchman in 1st edition AD&D, will be a cleric
Therigar Durinson -- Originally Farfindal's son, will be a fighter
Therindal Durinson -- Originally Therigar's son & Farfindal's grandson, currently on Ghallanda will transfer when allowed
Certified Used Parts -- Warforged wizard on Ghallanda, will be same on Cannith
Basso Profundo -- My hagglebard on Ghallanda, will be a hagglebard :rolleyes:
Yucheng of the Shadows -- My often rerolled rogue on Ghallanda, will be rogue
Leyoni the Fey -- My now defunct second account and sorcerer on Ghallanda, will be sorcerer
Ezra Grey -- The protagonist of my campaign when I was DMing in the 80's was a wizard then (whose most powerful spell was the Delayed Blast Nuclear Fireball), will be either a sorcerer or favored soul

I have two others that I want but that I haven't got slots for. Will try for them when the time comes.

Edit: Oh, and my favor grinder: Seven -- warforged ranger/monk/rogue with no rogue skills; wanted to name Seven of Nine or Seven Eleven but figured that would earn a rename. :D

Jerry got his name back?!?

Thats great news! Crossing my fingers for Rowan!

I was hoping for Wolf, Anger, Soul, Sol, and Dragon. All of which were taken.
I did get:
Wolfspirit
Wolfshadow
Wolfsoul
Quasar
Dragonburn

Except for the drow part that's exactly what I did. I have 10 female vangaurd fighters and one Human Warchanter named Poison Ivy. Figured might as well have some haggle to go with my favor.

Quite happy as I got all my normally cross-game used character names - hopefully see you all soon :)

My omnipotence says otherwise.

And sorry Ishy, I got Epoxy too :)

Bill
Bob
Fred
Charlie
Mildred
Sally
Alice
Bernadette
Lola

Seriously, though, I don't really care what my characters are named. I usually try to go for whimsically funny if I can get there, or even borderline inappropriate. I also tend to try and make it somewhat easy for my guildies to recognize a new toon as mine through some common strand but not always, and it is important to have some sort of name that doesn't scream out 'Plat Farmer' like Sdfgdvef, or something similar.

For those of you who are really into names, I hope you got what you wanted.

For those of you who didn't, don't despair, something will be available somewhere on your list.

09-02-2009, 06:08 PM
I was able to get all of the names that I wanted but had to mis-spell on Adar (and again on Sarlona).

It was quite interesting to watch general chat for that first hour. Lots of name bargaining going on :)

PS: Still big grats to whoever has the name "Relic" and also "Bumblebee" (I was so trying to make a yellow warforged monk that looked just like my favorite transformer).

Quit snagging names and get on here and play. It's a fun server growing like the others did way back when.
