16th May 2021: I Recognise That Name From Somewhere...

<Old Stuff>

It feels like a very long time since I last brought back something from my old site as an <Old Stuff> entry, so I thought why not bring back this strange little pointless bit of info, with a few added addendums. It's also the first in a new category of blog entries that I'm going to call "Ramblings", where I just write about any old bollocks.

I love characters and names. So much so that I become quite attached to the characters and names I create. I often reuse my faves, and they can be found sprinkled throughout pretty much all of my hobbies.

Many of my often-used names were originally made up for the Star Wars stories I started to write all the way back in 2004. At the time, I was working a very short-lived data entry job, where I had to process all kinds of applications such as catalogue orders. The sheer amount of weird and wonderful names that crossed my desk gave me all kinds of inspiration, and many of those characters have names that were changed, chopped or combined from names I saw doing that job.

Here, you can read about these characters, places or vessels, and where else I may have got their names from. I've also supplied images if I have them.

Gwapstik Snotgumz

Back in the 1994 version of Blood Bowl, star players could be permanently added to your team roster. Gwapstik Snotgumz was originally the name I made up for my version of Varag Ghoul-Chewer in my Orc team. After I started playing Blood Bowl again in the mid 2000s, one of my Black Orcs has instead used the name. The name is also used for my 40K Ork Warboss, who has his own clan called Gwapstik's Boyz. He also hates the Warlord of my Epic scale Ork army, whose name is Warlord Smashgrot.
I've recently noticed that I sometimes spell the name Gwapstick, which is totally incorrect. I mean, who would even spell it like that? Only an idiot I reckon.

Wilcra Li New / Meja Codan / Macan Vesso

These three are the main characters from my Star Wars stories. I used a Star Wars name generator along with my mate Krig and my bro JIK, which gave us some names that I then slightly modified for the stories.

The three names were later used as characters in my 40K Space Marine army: Master Wilcran Linus, Chaplain Codan and Captain Macan Vesso. Macan Vesso is also my character on Star Trek Online. He looks a little like a blue-skinned Dracula. The U.S.S. Codan is the name of my long range science vessel on Star Trek Online.

Ja'nalora / Karynna / Andera

Ja'nalora Andera is one of the supporting characters from my Star Wars stories. She is a Twi'lek Jedi Knight. Her sister Karynna is a villain in those stories. I later stole her name for my Tau Sept in 40K. Ja'nalora and Karynna Andera are two of my officers on Star Trek Online. Ja'nalora is a Trill and Karynna is her half sister. I love the name Ja'nalora, but really can't remember where the hell it came from.

Udré / Vizna

Udré Vizna is a supporting Jedi in my Star Wars stories. I later used the names for my Xen-Udré Eldar Craftworld in 40K, which is commanded by the powerful Farseer Udré Vizna. Udré Cerna is another Farseer. In my 40K head canon, Udré is a more of a title than a name. I have also used Vizna for my Caitian bridge officer on Star Trek Online, as well is my first ever Pandaren in WoW.

I later created World Of Warcraft characters Ashaai and Meiden, who are both pale-skinned Blood Elves. Meiden is my ship's Andorian first officer on Star Trek Online. A couple of years back I named one of my new Space Marine characters Ashaai Tigare.

Kreethen

Tarl Kreethen is a supporting character from my Star Wars stories. I next used the name for my first Worgen in WoW, and modified it to Kreethy for another Worgen when I dipped back into the game many years later. The U.S.S. Kreethen is my star cruiser on Star Trek Online. Kreethen is my dwarf dude in LOTRO. Tarl Kreethen is one of the Company Masters in my W40K Space Marine army. Kreethen is also my Jedi Consular on The Old Republic MMO.

Azra / Neema

Azra Neema is, yes you guessed it, a character I made for my Star Wars stories, where she was the commander of an outpost on Gorek II. I later used the name for a Klingon officer on Star Trek Online. The name has been split up and used for two different characters in my 40K Sisters Of Battle force. Azra Quistis is also named after Quistis from Final Fantasy 8, and Adrianna Neema is also named after the sorceress from Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance.

Sydor

The Sydor family are characters I made for my Star Wars stories. Vilton is the governor of the planet Reejan, while Airon and Airine are his children.

Kaloris

Kaloris first popped up as a minor planet in my Star Wars stories. I later used it for 40K where it became an important star system for one of our campaigns, as well as the place my 40K Imperial Guard Kaloris Stone Legions are from. I also used the name for my Odyssey Star Cruiser in Star Trek Online.

Xenia Koza

Xenia Koza was a name I made up to use in my Star Wars stories but never got around to using it. Later, I used the name for a Callidus Assassin from my 40K armies. I also used the name for a human bridge officer in Star Trek Online.
I got her name from actress Xenia Seeberg, a name I always found quite fascinating, though I believe my characters are pronounced quite differently to the actress, as I pronounce it "Zen-eye-a" for my characters.

Munkfish

Barry Munkfish is a character I made up with some work mates in the mid 2000s for a really silly project we were working on called Wild Land. He was literally the wildest Wild character in the whole project. And you can tell by looking at him, I bet.
I later made a Tauren World Of Warcraft character called Munkfish. Munkfish is the name I gave my Imperial Agent on The Old Republic MMO. The name was stolen from Inspector Monkfish from The Fast Show.

Splapdink

Wild--Splapdink was my alter-ego when I used to play Rome: Total War with the other Wild Monkey Generals in the mid 2000s. The name was a mistype that we thought was hilarious, though I can't actually remember what I was trying to type at the time. The name appeared again when I started to play Star Wars: Galaxies, with the creation of the Mon Calamari Medic Splapdink McWildpants. Then I created an Undead World Of Warcraft character called Splapdink. Splapdink is my summoner name on League of Legends. Splapperz was also my character name on Planetside 2.

Gaia Light / Kallisto Blaze

Gaia and Kallisto are a couple of characters that keep popping up ever since I created them for my Amazon Blood Bowl team. I later used their names for characters I made on Tera Online, and now also use them for my 40K Geminae. Kallisto is also the Draenei Paladin I made on WoW a couple of years back.

7th March 2020: League Of Lyrics

<Old Stuff>

When I started writing songs again in the early 2010s, most of my inspiration came from the computer game League Of Legends, which I was playing a lot of at the time. Here are the songs I completed that are based on the game's setting and characters:

Lyrics:
Never wanted sibling rivalry. Never foresaw such a tragedy. They never paused to explain why, they just ripped her from the sky. Branded fallen for her life, and now it's her purpose to kill again and again at the rift. Shattered wings and immortality. Keeps her hands warm though it's sinfully. Tormented soil, she's breaking waves. She will bind their souls someday. Kinda likes how she behaves, 'Cause now it's her purpose to kill again and again at the rift. Her graceful time was stolen from. All she wanted was some fun. Now exposed, the scars of war. Her world enslaved, it seems so far. Fractured by tyrannic lies. If they'd just seen things through her eyes. Missed the chance for sense to see. She'll never welcome back her kin. When they stripped her chance to soar, they made her seek forbidden lore. Blackest thorns, death on command, in this land of Valoran. Never mind her skin so fair, as all her torment she will share. When it's time she'll spill their blood, because not all angels are good.

Lyrics:
CHOSEN OF THE MOON: Let night steal away the sun. By the moon let fools be frozen. Now your end it has begun. Say goodbye to your kind's chosen. Traitors. Miscreants. Fakers. Ignorants. Heed the night. Embrace the dark. Or a crescent blade will still your heart. Power imbued beneath the silver light bathing the ground. Blind to the truth - denying lunar might will bring you down. You say revere the sun but we are lied to. You say it lights the way instead it blinds you. You can't face the scorn, can't save them all, can't stave your fall. It's time to shatter the dawn. CHOSEN OF THE SUN: Rise. Here comes the sun. Skin warmed by the golden rays that show with daybreak. Stand strong behind shield and blade, and glow, radiate. When first light comes show no fear when the heat of battle calls because here comes the sun, to save everyone. Here comes the sun. The night's on the run. Live life upon mountain high and show devotion. Inspire all to stand up and bestow protection. It's poetic - the chosen will clash and the heretic will know.

Lyrics:
Initiate. Make a dive for the middle. Pick a mark, get involved, give 'em trouble. Move out to the flank, prep 'em for a gank all the lanes. Bring the hurt floor the carry. Make them wish that they weren't adversaries. Time to hard engage. Time to make 'em rage. Gonna bring the pain. Gonna change the game. Team needs aggression. Objectives first. Foes need a lesson. Prepare the burst. So bring perfection. Set up the show with crowd control. Achieve the goal with crowd control. Rock and roll with crowd control. Retaliate. Make 'em pay for their trouble. They think they're gonna bring the pain? Give 'em double. Gonna stamp around. Gonna shut 'em down on the rift. Play it calm, turn to savage. Gotta counter swift prevent all their damage. Block 'em with a wall. And then stun them all. Gonna lock 'em up. Gonna land a hook. Team needs protecting. With crescendo. Skill interrupting. Weakness exposed. Offense deflecting. Now bring them low with crowd control. Now dominate. Serve them up on an arrow. Tidal wave leaves them all feeling sorrow. And with a nether grasp, put em on their assassinate, apprehend, slow with zephyr. Land a bind, terrify, taunt their effort. See hatred in their eyes. When you pulverize. Gonna score an ace. Gonna wreck their face. Team fight injection. It's time to shine. To bring conclusion. Support divine. Such an obsession. The world will know your crowd control.

Lyrics:
Shadows, she's sneaking up on through. Evelynn. Delight, she throws herself into. Her prey's up ahead. Rage will be fed. They're damned. Come now. Embrace the agony. Time to feed. Run now, but it won't help to flee. Hate spike through the leg. Soon they'll be dead. They're damned. It's all over. She loves when they scream on cue. There's no escape when she impales them for her pleasure. There's no escaping and her frenzy brings the end. And she won't stop until they're torn in two. They'll find no solace when she lets her fun begin. They're damned. Scream out. It wakes her beast within. Death begins. Ends now she draws their essence in. Ground painted red. Now they are dead. They're damned.

9th June 2019: Little LoL Leak

Back in March, I gave the League of Legends match history web site a little check, and I found that the filters seem to work again. Well, at least a little bit. This allowed me to get some scores for my champs when I played the last few ARAMs. So here's some sad pointless stats from when I last played.
