i have 5 pets in my stable right now , Cat named Sabertooth(echeyakee), Spider named Rorshach( l/skins/skin_giantspiderorange.html), a black Wind serpent from WC called Darkscale,
Orange Raptor from durotar named Stripe and at last a red core hound named Corey.

would appreciate if someone could help me get some mythical names for 5 of these pets, would like some mighty and powerful names that describe how fierce and wild these beasts are from Tolkien, nordic mythology or something like that :)

Ok, for the Corehound I might suggest Cruentus, which is Latin for bloodthirsty.
For the Wind Serpent I would suggest either Umbra or Furtim, both meaning shadow and stealth respectively.
For the raptor I would suggest Ravisher, for it simply means raptor, which implies both it's species and it's cunning and ferocity.
For your cat I think maybe Venator, meaning hunter, which would be fitting as it mercilessly hunts down your prey.
And last but not least, for your spider I would think Astus, which stands for cunning and would be a fitting name in my opinion.

:) :D :mrgreen: Enjoy :mrgreen: :D :)

Cat - Nergal (Babylonian deity often presented as a lion)
Spider - from Tolkien either Ungoliant (giant monster, basically pure evil in spider-form, form the Silmarillion) or Shelob (the last child of Ungoliant, which Frodo and Sam fight in LotR)
Wind Serpent - Hurakan (Mayan storm god and origine of the word hurricane) or Zahhak (snake-related ancient Iranian god)
Raptor - simply Razor
Core Hound - the name of a hellhound such as Cerberus/Kerberos (Greek), Garm/Garmr (Norse) or Surma (Finnish)

Does mythical approve of god names? like Cerberus for corehound, Kirin for cat, for wind serpent, Haures or Charon, both deities of darkness (haures is a beast that sunders darkness, charon is the boatman of the river styx) or go with its element instead with thor, or prochne (did i spell that right?). spider and raptor i got nothing, but if you get the white core hound fenrir might work.

EDIT: i quick search found nothing in relation to spider gods or deities, but for spider i remember this one character from the golden sun game i played, her name was Ulysses and she summoned what could only be described as jaws from these cards that would snare the target in place. as for raptor, maybe just zagan. its a minor deity of earth with vicous claws and a halbard.

I agree with most of these, mostly because if I did research I probably wouldn't find anything better.

But the raptor, I'd name him SonicRipper. Just not really shiny or pertaining to a god but I think it sounds good...

Karathyriel, Where did you get your signature from? Is there a way I could get one of my character and her pet?

I made the signature myself, using the modelviewer and some picture editing software who can deal with animated GIFs.
It was supposed to be my avatar, but it's to large a file.

I probably could try to do one for you to but I need some infos for that.

Oh, really? That's brilliant. I tried using modelviewer a while ago, but it kept freezing.

Thank you, that would be awesome. I don't think the PM system is working yet, but as soon as it is I'll send you some info, such as screenshots, a link to the armory, etc.

Thanks, it's much appreciated. ^_^

Mania will probably NOT have PMs working to keep data rate low.

Let's switch to our own thread, so we won't hijack this thread... Somewhere in General Chat perhaps?
