Wolcen - Full Release!

Wolcen: Lords of Mayhem is going into full release on Feb 13th, 2020!  I've been following this ARPG since it was first Kickstarted way back in 2015.  I've played it once or twice throughout the development process... Some Alpha, some Beta.  Overall it has come along very nicely, and I have high hopes for the future of this game.  This game has been discussed as once of the top games that will be pit against Diablo IV for the next generation of ARPG's on the market.  I know Cecil and I will be playing for sure.  Come join us in-game and on Discord!

Smite - Free To Play.

Smite is a 3D fantasy MOBA where players take on the role of mythological gods and battle in team-based arenas. Unlike other MOBAs, SMITE puts you directly onto the battlefield with a third-person action viewpoint. From blind-side ambushes to aimed shots, a new pantheon of strategic possibilities awaits.  Become a legend of myth, enter the Battleground of the Gods, and play FREE now!

Game Modes:
Conquest – the main 5v5 game mode. Features three lanes and a jungle area filled with neutral monsters. Arena – a 5v5 game mode with an open battle area rather than lanes. Each team begins with 500 points and must reduce the other side's to zero by killing heroes, minions, and escorting allied minions to portals. Joust – a 3v3 game mode with a single lane which otherwise plays like Conquest mode. Joust can also be played 1v1. Assault – similar to ARAM (All Random, All Mid) in LoL, players are assigned a random God and fight on a map with a single lane. Siege – a faster version of Conquest. Siege mode consists of only two lanes and contains a special Siege Juggernaut minion that deals extra damage to structures.
Never played a battle arena before? Don’t worry. Auto-buy, auto-level, and the deathmatch-like Arena mode let you jump right into divine MOBA action. Aspiring pro? Top the ladders, join a competitive team, and you too could be playing at the SMITE World Championship.

What's in a Name? - ESO Edition

Recommended Posts

So, what names were you able to grab? And more importantly, what's the story behind the names?

 

I was able to get in front of my computer about an hour after early access went live, and by then, pretty much every Roman name I could think of was taken, but I'm pretty happy with my Imperial's name.

 

 

Skayde (Female Orc Dragon Knight- DC): Skayde is my "go to" name for a fierce female character (my first being an Orc DK in WoW). The inspiration for the name is a character named Skade from Alastair Reynolds' Revelation Space series.

 

Sessinek (Male Argonian Sorcerer - EP): Sess'Innek is a Demon Lord of Lizard Men in D&D. It looked too unwieldy with the ' and extra n, but I liked the sound of it. I made Sessinek an albino as an homage to Malack from OOTS.

 

Bashira (Female Khajiit Nightblade - AD): Bashira is an Arabic name that means "Wise". It just sounded cool for a Khajiit.

 

Tiresius (Male Imperial Templar - AD): I had Tiresias, Tiresius and Tyresius, but went with Tiresius because it looked the most "Roman-looking" to me

 

Hakim (Male Redguard Nightblade - DC): He's my bank character. Just picked a Middle Eastern name. By coincidence, it's also an Arabic word for "Wise".

Mine are simple:

 

Caeadwen, and the spins offs, have never been female chars.  it was generated in EQ and my Enchanters name.

 

Eendiwena, and all the spin offs, have never been male chars.  This was the name of the cleric i bought on EQ that i always dual boxed with my enchanter.

 

Tawnose, Name of my moon mage from Dragon realms that my friend gave me.

I have yet to find a game where I couldn't get the one name I wanted: Vegihan.  I am happy!

Ixiolander (Male Breton Sorcerer - AD ): My go to name recently was a character originally created on a Neverwinter Nights server that was a cloud dragon sorcerer focused on fog and electricity spells from the world of Golarion. He's since been played in Pathfinder tabletop as well. If anyone cares for that sort of stuff, I actually have his sheet online here: Ixio

 

Other characters I haven't created yet, but most names are pulled from characters or npcs I've played/used in various campaigns.

Arelos (Bosmer Nightblade): I came up with the name when I played WoW. I use Arelos as my main character in most games and he can be any race or class. 

 

When I got into SWG I began using a last name and came up with Dhrahin. Other members of that family are Talyus and Grekk.

Xarq - Was first my Jedi-grind toon in SWG (got through about 17 professions, IIRC, before I quit the game), then was my first main in WoW (resto druid), and then my gatherer cleric in Rift I created for trying out new builds (because I ran out of role slots on my main cleric and what I had was basically fixed).  Xarq will be my sorcerer tank in ESO.


 


Oort - I created a second druid in WoW because I wanted to try feral and had vendored the armor ring off the Tanaris turtle escort quest (one of three armor rings at the time).  I initially wanted to name him "Ort", being a good crossword word for leftovers, as he'd be my alt and only get my leftover time, but that name was unavailable.  I liked the sound of it, though, so went with Oort.  Oort ended up being my main in WoW, a bear tank.  My main in Rift was also Oort, a cleric tank.  Oort is now my main in ESO, a Templar tank wannabe.


 


Fflammdwyn - was my last name in SCA and of my toons in Dragon's Gate first on GEnie and then on AOL.  I've been told it roughly translates as "flamethrower" so struck me as a good name for my Dragon Knight tank.


 


Blades of Doom - I decided to do something silly for a name for my Nightblade tank.  He's still at the start of the prison.

After UO which saw my first Vlos (which is blood from the Drow dictionay) I have created most of my toons with some variation of it.

 

Vlos - Blood (warlock type character)

Beldrovlos - Create Blood (my main crafter)

Quellarvlos - noble house blood (paladin or Templar in this game).

Drovlos - life blood (usually a thief type - nightblade)

Torvlos - no translation - usually fighter/knight type

Trilvlos - Bite Blood (caster - vampire)

 

Though many like Torvlos have no true translation.

Jack Imeret was my main character in Guild Wars, and has his lore based there going forward 9 generations. The name was something completely random, but my original characters were based off of Stargate SG-1 (Col. Jack O'Neill). I've used this name so much that I've become Jack to everyone from the online world; every game I play has this name (or some variant where naming conventions are constrained). All my other ESO toons have lore based names. Jack Is a Breton, which I thought was the best suited.

I use a variation of cair in everytoon I have now, too keep things simple (just mix it with some other name and it sounds kinda normal - like Cairington came from the Fo3 character Pinkerton). The name Cair comes from the city and country of Cairhien in the Wheel of Time book series. My old powertech in swotor was named Cairhien, but people called me cair for short, which turned into the phonetic 'care' in mumble.

Wow I can't tell you how darn hard it was, not to tell everyone, what it really means!

 

But Jar Jar Binks knows it and is very afraid!
