My first contest!
Please come one, come all, as in the spirit of the upcoming new game I have decided to follow in Neil's footsteps and hold a contest!
To create names. I will be pre-ordering Guild Wars 2 and I would like to come up with some names that I like now instead of regretting whatever name I come up with later. Names will be judged on a 1-10 point basis, based on 5 aspects
- Ease: You will earn points based on how easy the name is to pronounce and type. For instance, My name of choice, Briar, is much easier to pronounce than Kralkatorrik.
- Incorporation of Class: You will earn points based on how well the name fits the characters class. For instance Briar The Furious fits the class much better than Pinky the Pony.
- Incorporation of Species: You will earn points based on how well the name fits the characters species. For instance, a human named Smiter of Charr will receive more points than a Charr character of the same name.
- Gender Identification:I don't want a Female named Bob. Catch my drift?
- Bonus: 10 Bonus points are available for quirks having to do with the name you come up with. Pop-Culture references, Names regarding to in-game factions, whether it "rolls off the tongue", etc.
- First prize winner will receive an Emerald Blade and their choice of either a Draconic Aegis, or, Celestial Compass
- Second prize will earn you an Oppressor, or Destroyer weapon of your choice and a Miniature Dagnar Stonepate
- Third prize will receive an Oppressor or Destroyer Weapon of your choice.
H = Human
C = Charr
A = Asura
S = Sylvari
N = Norn
M = Male
F = Female
Please put your submissions here, Using 4 ='s and and your name with a link to your page (easily accomplished by putting your signature between the ='s) As such;
