Human, Good, Deity Avandra
Ruthless Ruffian Rogue

(Rolled in DM's pressence)
Str: 18 Con: 14
Dex: 20 Int: 13
Wis: 18 Cha: 17

Feats: Backstabber, Slayers Action
Skills: Acrobatics, Bluff (or streetwise), Insight, Intimidate, Perseption, Stealth, and Thievery
Common/Elven

At-Will: Deft Strike, Disheartening Strike, Peirceing Strike
Encounter: Termination Threat
Daily: Checking Jab

Main Weapon: Mace, Side Weapon: Shurinken (20)
Leather Armor.

Sorry for this Tsunaki, I took you Idea ^^;;;

- Sense I have been informed I am a side character in this story (we take turns for the main character) I desisded that my character just wanted to leave the house just because it was "no fun" there (no, he does not mean by stealing things, he just loves to have life threatening situations because the give him a rush.) Diffrent from Tsunaki, his parants wouldn't have it, so instead he took his fathers equipment and left in the dead of night w/out his consent.

So, Ideas for Names
First: Redon, Timathy, Samual, Nickolus
Last: Longfellow, Wood, Kildec

These are Ideas though, and sence I am no good w/ names, you can make your own. Thanks for the help. I think I gave enough info on him for a proper name to match him. Thank you again.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Now for the 1001 Game.

Basicly, give names of you character. They can be on of these three things.

1) Made from a funny word (Kitty = Citty)
2) Put them Togeather (ex: P.I. Staker (sound it out))
3) Just plain out rediculus.

Lol, go funny names!!!
To steal from Disney

1) I.L. Beback
2.) Lord Bludgeonton

3.) Frank the Impaler

4.) His Majesty the King Arragraxx of the People's Kingdom of Werthinghamshire (Must use all titles all the time)

A list of CharOp Handbooks I'm currently updating:

Heart of the Dragon: A Dragonborn's Handbook

Infernal Wrath: A Tiefling's Handbook

5.)Ahkmed.
6) Mensir the seeker of many truths.
Go to preferences at the top of the page to create a sig. If you have just figured out how to create a sig, like me, copy this into your sig.
7.) Medium Rary

8.) Gleep Wurp the Eyebiter
9. Booby McHooter
10. Busty Sinclair
11. Chesty LaRue
5.)Ahkmed.

Sorry, not good with rogue names.

24. Tarrarun the Castrator
25. Near-Leah Spellslinger (or whatever else you like :P )
For your Rogue how about

Jackson 'Blackjack' Ravenwood.

It has a certain bourgeois flair to it and a nice roguish nickname.

my builds
F-111 Interdictor Long (200+ squares) distance ally teleporter. With some warlord stuff. Broken in a plot way, not a power way.

Thought Switch Higher level build that grants upto 14 attacks on turn 1. If your allies play along, it's broken.

Elven Critters Crit op with crit generation. 5 of these will end anything. Broken.

King Fisher Optimized net user.  Moderate.

Boominator Fun catch-22 booming blade build with either strong or completely broken damage depending on your reading.

Very Distracting Warlock Lot's of dazing and major penalties to hit. Overpowered.

Pocket Protector Pixie Stealth Knight. Maximizing the defender's aura by being in an ally's/enemy's square.

Yakuza NinjIntimiAdin: Perma-stealth Striker that offers a little protection for ally's, and can intimidate bloodied enemies. Very Strong.

Chargeburgler with cheese Ranged attacks at the end of a charge along with perma-stealth. Solid, could be overpowered if tweaked.

Void Defender Defends giving a penalty to hit anyone but him, then removing himself from play. Can get somewhat broken in epic.

Scry and Die Attacking from around corners, while staying hidden. Moderate to broken, depending on the situation.

Skimisher Fly in, attack, and fly away. Also prevents enemies from coming close. Moderate to Broken depending on the enemy, but shouldn't make the game un-fun, as the rest of your team is at risk, and you have enough weaknesses.

Indestructible Simply won't die, even if you sleep though combat.  One of THE most abusive character in 4e.

Sir Robin (Bravely Charge Away) He automatically slows and pushes an enemy (5 squares), while charging away. Hard to rate it's power level, since it's terrain dependent.

Death's Gatekeeper A fun twist on a healic, making your party "unkillable". Overpowered to Broken, but shouldn't actually make the game un-fun, just TPK proof.

Death's Gatekeeper mk2, (Stealth Edition) Make your party "unkillable", and you hidden, while doing solid damage. Stronger then the above, but also easier for a DM to shut down. Broken, until your DM get's enough of it.

Domination and Death Dominate everything then kill them quickly. Only works @ 30, but is broken multiple ways.

Battlemind Mc Prone-Daze Protecting your allies by keeping enemies away. Quite powerful.

The Retaliator Getting hit deals more damage to the enemy then you receive yourself, and you can take plenty of hits. Heavy item dependency, Broken.

Dead Kobold Transit Teleports 98 squares a turn, and can bring someone along for the ride. Not fully built, so i can't judge the power.

Psilent Guardian Protect your allies, while being invisible. Overpowered, possibly broken.

Rune of Vengance Do lot's of damage while boosting your teams. Strong to slightly overpowered.

Charedent BarrageA charging ardent. Fine in a normal team, overpowered if there are 2 together, and easily broken in teams of 5.

Super Knight A tough, sticky, high damage knight. Strong.

Super Duper Knight Basically the same as super knight with items, making it far more broken.

Mora, the unkillable avenger Solid damage, while being neigh indestuctable. Overpowered, but not broken.

Swordburst Maximus At-Will Close Burst 3 that slide and prones. Protects allies with off actions. Strong, possibly over powered with the right party.

That last one i was just feeling lazy as a character so he just introduced himself as Steve. Never mentioned a last name.
my current character is called "Shump, the magical vagrant of parrot island".

disregarding the fact that's he's no longer a vagrant or living on parrot island anymore and is actually employed by a wealthy patron and living on her estate about a 3 month boat trip away from his hometown.

he still smells like the underside of an otyugh though.

I'm awful at coming up with names, so I usually just steal them from something else.

My current character, a dragonborn hammer+shield fighter, is named nebezial. It sounds cool, and is named after an amazing artist's screen-name.

I think we are on

42. Kilt Aghan

because I did not count all the names from DragonsWrath
In 3e, I briefly played a 'fire mage' sorceress named 'Fiora' - in 4e, I plan to convert her to a Tiefling Wizard with black hair with a white streak down the center.

My next character will be Derleth, a Star Warlock.


We'll see if anyone gets either of those...

Want to see the best of 4e included in 5e?  Join the Old Guard of 4e.

5e really needs something like Wrecan's SARN-FU to support "Theatre of the Mind."

"You want The Tooth?  You can't handle The Tooth!"  - Dahlver-Nar.

"If magic is unrestrained in the campaign, D&D quickly degenerates into a weird wizard show where players get bored quickly"  - E. Gary Gygax

 

 

Oops, looks like this request tried to create an infinite loop. We do not allow such things here. We are a professional website!

My current character: Chester McSquee, a halfling feylock. The fine print in his fey pact stipulates that he must wear a squirrel costume at all times. Good thing the armor fits over it.
If I hit my mark like I somtimes do, I might get it, since one of my characters was caled Dharc.

Fiora [fie-or-a] I think, cant hear you prenounce it. Fiora sounds like Fire with a 'a' sound at the end.

Derleth [der-leth] Kinda sounds like Death if I prenounce it correctly.

So, am I correct, or was you characters not like my Rogue/Darklock combo?

I am the Magic Man.

(Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain.)

 

I am the Lawnmower Man.

(I AM GOD HERE!)

 

I am the Skull God.

(Koo Koo Ka Choo)

 

There are reasons they call me Mad...

A friend is playing a catlady named Seiadee (I don't think I'm spelling that right)

The name was derived by the fact that it's pronounced "c-A-t".
My first character. Warlock.

The'yDrial Paramore Sullivan

Aka. The DPS.

We also have a running joke at the moment involving the mispronounciation of foreign words (I'm staying in France at the moment, but am Australian) So I have a character name "Abri Poubelles" (Sheltered Dustbins in French) Pronounced "Abree Pleh". But I pronounce it as written
Our first 4e party featured such characters as 'Benny Underhill', a warlock prone to extended chase sequences and 'Ani Oakleaf', a deadeye ranged cleric.
(I employ zie/zie/zir as a gender-neutral counterpart to he/him/his. Just a heads-up.) Essentials definitely isn't for me as a player, and I feel that its design and implementation bear serious flaws which fill me with concern for the future of D&D, but I've come to the conclusion that it isn't going to destroy the game that I want to play. Indeed, I think that I could probably run a game for players using Essentials characters without it being much of a problem at all. Time will tell, I suppose.

If you really want something sly take one of your character's most defining attributes and put it into an online Thesaurus. Follow the links until you find a word no longer used.


For example, I have a character name Tea Telæsthesia. I took one of her defining features (she uses a lot of psychic type spells) and plugged it into dictionary.com's thesaurus. So I looked up synonyms to the word "telepathy." One of them was "telesthesia." I looked up that word and found the alternate spelling "telæsthesia." I recommend you try something similar.
Long long time ago, when I played with two french, there was this Bard by the name of:

Doremi de fasolasido

(which turns out to be nearly a scale of C major in french...)
43. Bob

That is all. *snickers* I played for about 6 months with a Paladin named Bob...while uncreative I snicker every time I think of that character. :D

As bonus points, both the first and middle name are galic/something similar.

1. Samuel Adams of Cauldron (Half Orc Figther)
2. Shuriken Nekogami (Deceased Adolescent Human rogue, she will return during my dm's next campaign, her first name means throwing star, her last name means cat god, when i first created the freeform char 10 years ago, i thought it meant shooting star of the cat god.)
3. Dimitri Molotova (my current character, a male unseen seer who performs sneak attacks with the acidic splatter feat. his acid is a blue cold corrrosive liquid. sounds like a russian tennis player.)
4. Sylvie Schwartz of the Twin daggers and her raven "Bruder" (human daggerspell mage, 17-19 year old female human)
5. Einhammer (male dwarf cleric of moradin, his name literally means, "A Hammer")
6. Egon (human knight/fighter/paladin/hellreaver specialized in the guisarme, his name sounds like Igor)
7. Ulgar "The Horrid" (2hand power attacking dwarf fighter, his name sounds like Hagar "the horrible" he wore platemail and carried an oversized axe [not monkey grip oversized, but 2hand sized])
Actually happened in a game, an NPC had a name that we realized was a bit off.

Pronounced "Ah-shot"
Spelled Asshat.


Yeah.


Also a favorite, use your own name, but make it into a title.
Example, if your name is John Smith, call your character Lord John of Smith.

In one game, I have a human fighter named Pythagoras "One-eyed Piet" Thompson.

Otherwise I DM and have many odd NPC names, although I base them mostly on real names. My PCs are the brothers Torix and Constantine van Rijn. Mercenaries, they are.

-Drillboss
In one of my monthly Meetup games, we played through a module with an NPC whose first name was Mylon, last name started with an S, I forgot exactly what. With another group pretty loud nearby, we didn't catch the proper name, and one of the players said, "Mylong *******"? The name stuck.

Even though our age group seems to be mostly 30s to 50s, we're all immature at heart, and broke up laughing every time the name was mentioned. It didn't help that one of the other players drew a quick facial caricature of a man with drooping, rounded jowls.

At least one full hour cumulative was wasted that session on people laughing too hard to concentrate on the game. I know one player fell out of his chair at one point in time.

Monty Python's Election Night Special has some exceptionally silly names, too. Tarquin Fin-Tim Lim-Bim Whim-Bim Busstop F'tang F'tang Ole Biscuitbarrel is my favorite.

Someday I'm going to make a cleric named Wizard.
