Funny non-random names
« on: November 04, 2007, 01:49:00 am »

Father, a fortress founded by the group Ragingish Rash.

No, that's not the English translation, that's the dwarven! Other words I've come up with are Rager, Gorer, and Toker. Now that we can make our own names, we can find all kinds of amusing combinations of Dwarven words - you just have to look for them. See what you can come up with! What are you going to name your fortress or adventurer? I bet there's all kinds of possibilities in Elvish and Human, too.

(Technically rash is spelled with an , but treat accented letters as regular if it makes it funnier.)

There's already a thread for this, in case you were wondering.

Well, this is a little different. Those are funny English translations, I'm trying to make the Dwarven look like English. Anyway, I guess nobody's as much of a linguistics nerd, or maybe just nobody finds it interesting. Oh well.

Outpost Father, strike the earth!

In the thread I mentioned earlier, I just remembered that I posted something like this. If you have repetitions of the word "Pepper" in your fortress name ("Rumred") then it will look like "Redrum." Ever read The Shining?  :D I've read the book but not seen the movie, though I've heard numerous references to it and seen the "Movie in 30 seconds with bunnies" version.
