Ideas for "The Shadow War"

Postby Prince Imdol » Mon Sep 17, 2007 12:37 am

I know you guys don't even have any idea what happens in the end of book one, but I guess you really don't need to, as the second book has little entwined with the first.


Here is a sneak peak of the charecters names. I am giving away no major charecters here, so its ok.

Quinia
Cassianna
Grembierd
Gremelion
Malark
Tilitus
Meadham


Basically, I want to know what you think of these names.

Well, hard to say anything about them just in a list like that...

But I like Quinia, Cassania, Gremelion and Tilitus since they go quite well together, as if they could belong to the same culture, a common mistake otherwise is to just invent different names that sound really weird together.

Good point. But then with a big cast one may run out of names. For my factions I try to use for example Polish sounding names for one faction and Spanish for another, to give each individual faction a slightly different culture. But I also have a set of common names that get borrowed from other factions.

As far as whether any of these could be, say, royalty or peasants or what have you thats up to you. These are good names for either.

Most likely, royalty.
