My first contest![edit]

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 Warrior tango icon 20px.pngBriar The Furious fits the class much better than Warrior tango icon 20px.pngPinky the Pony.
  • Incorporation of Species: You will earn points based on how well the name fits the characters species. For instance, a human named Guardian tango icon 20px.pngSmiter 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.
