So, on my travels to take screenshots for the base images of "The Travels of Gazkra, Orc," I found myself sneaking through LBRS for the scenery. I needed shots of the orcs, worgs and general area, and of course found myself at Halycon's Nest.Background:
The Bloodaxe Worgs, apparently bred by the Scarshield Legion, are famous. Rumors abound of their being spawned by demons or demon blood, but the reality of it is that two huge, fearsome worgs are used to breed the majority of the Legion's raiding force. These are Halycon, the red/dark gray female worg, and Gizrul the Slavener, the massive pale gray worg. When adventurers arrive in LBRS to kill the worgs, they can see that Halycon actually has a litter of black pups in the Nest with her.
I found out, for the first time (I missed it the first five times through apparently >.>), that these pups--whelped from the legendary Halycon and Gizrul themselves--are tameable. They grow to normal size, of course, but they share Deathmaw's trait of growling when clicked.
I love the idea of having a worg from such well-known roots, and I want a name that fits him. Something noble or fearsome, worthy of a great mythical figure, something that commands respect (something along the lines of Halycon or Gizrul as names, perhaps). I know this sounds weird, but I don't want to use the name of something that is already well-known, so nothing from mythology. It's hard to explain, but I guess I want a noble, fierce-sounding (perhaps Horde, or orcish-sounding) name that isn't already well-known, something suitable for a hero... or a villain!
