Name needed for a Fae race
« on: January 16, 2009, 08:09:38 PM »
They are not native to the world they are in, they visit it through magical links. Their own world, although little is known of it, is thought to be as every bit as complicated as our own. They look almost helpless with their gauzy wings like those of insects, and their average size being two inches.

They have a very dangerous bite however, that can (not permantly though) paralyse a human within half a minite, and they are a lot stronger then they seem (maybe through magic?) Twelve or more can carry away a human, as for human impliments, it just takes from one to four to carry them away. If fighting a human, they try and stay out of reach of weapons and hands, and dart in and bite. Or they ambush them.

Those who humans see are the bravest and most enterprising ones as only they will leave their home-world. And their favourite food (only eaten at their greatest festivals) is human flesh.

Are you wanting names that they would call themselves, or that humans would call them?

Former: Depends on their culture and worldview. Probably something majestic and completely unrealistic of their true status. "The Eternal Lords of the Wind" or somesuch thing.

Latter: Bitrem, Nuisae, "Bugs" (derogatory slang name)
P(A|B) = P(B|A)*P(A)/P(B)

How about...

Morgans?

You know Morgan LeFey, from Arthurian legend? Take the name Morgan from that one character and apply it to the whole race perhaps?

Triumph of the Dungeon Master!

Ah, how I have come to love that sense of accomplishment and victory that I get when I pull the wool over the eyes of a clever player character. What DM Triumphs have you had?

Some of mine:
1. Finally killing an incredibly powerful, lucky, annoying player's character.
2. Finally achieving a TPK (Total Party Kill)
3. Finally achieving a TPK using only traps
4. Finally working out how to make it so that d**n wizard doesn't steal the spotlight all the d**n time.
