PostSubject: Naming Characters   Thu Jul 07, 2011 3:33 am

In Ogre Battle 64 you are given the unique option of naming almost every unit you obtain. Some people like the defaults, while others always rename. So what about you? Do you rename Magnus and his Army? Do you spend hours picking out names for the countless units in the game?


For me, I always rename everything I can. Magnus is always renamed Storm X. ((It's my default name for all main male characters I play as. Of course, it's a tad lame, but then again I have been doing it since I was 7.)) As for units, I always have two characters with my name, my username (Dragon Master) and my real name (Diana). Then my brothers get characters as well. Philip likes his own name, and he is always my Dragoon. Chris is given his nickname, McBalderson. It's really Baldy McBalderson, but I have to make due.

As for the rest, I keep defult. My army however is called the Zara Knights. A play off my username.

Whenever I run ninja masters in my playthroughs I name them Rocky, Colt, and Tum-Tum.

Sometimes I like to name Magnus after famous military leaders such as Darius, Napoleon, Alexander, Julius, etc. and try to make the decisions according to their personality.

On the rare occasions I run a Golem I change it's name to Potemkin.

I give my Black Knights silly names all around, whatever I can think of at the moment.

I usually name my favorite characters after people I know, though I don't name the main character after myself. I usually name him "Aesig." Also, the first time I played through the game I got a knight named "Valentine" and I have been sure to have one every playthrough since.

During my second playthrough I got a hellhound and a beast tamer. I remembered from one of my previous playthrough a knight from the opposing team was named ma'dog, so guess what I named the hellhound.ever since then I've named my hellhounds ma,dog.

I was watching, or reading rather, a playthrough once. They renamed Magnus to "Goofus and" so that his full name read "Goofus and Gallant." He basically took readers suggestions for the rest of his battalion names.

I'll see if I can find it today, it was fairly fun to read through.

As for me I usually keep my main unit with Magnus and put on either side of him characters I commonly use.

Ninja gets named Steve (a shame there isn't a thief class in game)
Swordmaster Jake
Black Knight named after myself (Heavy weapons!? Yes sir.)

Of course, I always rename all my characters to people I know or met online, trying to match either their preference and/or personality xD

I name my army the Scarlet Rose, cauz I like Red and it sounds pretty smooth. Also lack of space D=

I try and stick to a theme. So right now my Leader is named Jimi Hendrix, and most everyone else is named after hippy stuff. For example:
R U Going?
Flwr Pwr
Pachewlee
Tye-Die

i usuallly always keep the unique characters that i get to name in games their intended name. Now as for all the generic characters i dont change many but sometimes i do if i dont like their name. I do try to put the names of the soldiers from the graduating class on my initial unit leaders and other characters.
