Best Name with a "Moon" In It?
« on: April 17, 2012, 10:25:59 PM »
A new Muro Award. As suggested by MysticMoon at last year's festivities, i now give you (ask you), which moon member has the mooniest moniker?

The Five Moons are in alignment.

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.

With all due respect to MoonHunter and MysticMoon, I'm a sucker for anything with any moniker with the word "beard" in it.

I feel the same way Dozus. Being a Man of The Beard myself they (beard-inclusive names) have a special feeling attached to them. I imagine myself with a glorious length of facial awesomeness worthy of being used to identify myself. When you are named for your beard, you know you have a great beard.

My second choice was MoonHunter, a Hunter under the light of the Moon, presumably hunting creatures of the night with wanton badassery. 

Moonlake is nice, simple, clean with some powerful imagery attached, but it doesn't move me in the way I think the "Best" name should.

MysticMoon sounds like the name that would be given to a magical order. Mages of the Mystic Moon or similar. Certainly thought provoking, but not the best of the batch.

Moon-Child is probably my least favorite. It feels overdone. It might have some significance to the owner, but there are likely more owner's who just thought it sounded cool.

Go, Moonbeard! Best "Moon" Name OF ALL TIME!

See, I always pictured it as someone actually hunting the Moon itself. Like, impotently but furiously hurling javelins toward the lunar surface. Which is wanton badassery of a different sort, but wanton badassery nonetheless.

My first would have been Moonhunter because he is such a good writer. His articles are brilliant.

But I would go with Mysticmoon this time, he accepted me into my first RP here on Strolens, which sadly ended a little too soon.

I used to live in terror of MoonHunter until he clarified for me that he hunts by the moon, not moons themselves. He definitely got my vote, as did Moonlake because that seemed like a cool image.

Just looking at the title, I had a flash of Leonard Cohen singing a strange version of "I'm Your Man." If I didn't have a voice that scares animals and small children, I would totally write my own version of that and dedicate it to the Mrs.
