Name that Ogre!
« on: January 20, 2012, 10:40:00 PM »
I would love to say that Bill Thornhill made this for us as a present but we are paying through the nose for it....only joking!

He is pretty funky and to make him even more funky we figured a nice green (with a hint of grey) resin will look fab.  So what shall we call him?
Usual rules apply.  Everything is time/dated stamped.  Competition is between Facebook and FOD.  The 4 best choices from each place will go into a poll and the readers will decide.  I do however reserve all rights to change my mind ( i am female after all) and go with the funniest option.  My decision is final, no arguments or quibbles or i shall make a decision that perhaps you are tired and need to go to bed for an early night and wake up with a better attitude in the morning ( sorry, mummy hat slipped on then......).  You have until Grey Matter give us the first batch of castings (hopefully 1 week) to state your choice below.



A bank is a place where they lend you an umbrella in fair weather & ask for it back when it starts to rain. 

most mornings i wake up grumpy.   sometimes i just let him sleep.

my life consists of brief snatched moments of living my life hidden deep among chaos, confusion& the  going crazy, every night i go to sleep filled with hope & enthusiasm for the new day coming.  then i wake up & think "here I go again" & just aim to survive.

"Happy".

He seems such a cheerful chap, not like the run-of-the-mill adventurer fodder.

Not a name suggestion, just happy someone bought the green and the Ogre'll get released.

I put these on facebook, but I'll put them here too.

Urrp.  One syllable is appropriate.

Romeo.  Because he's probably the prettiest ogre I've ever seen, at least by ogre standards.  He hasn't even grown into his boils yet!

Four suggestions:

Drek
Marshall (There is a tie-in, it's convoluted, but it's there)
Scarborough (A slightly less obtuse tie-in)
Michael

That's all I've got at the moment...
MichaelG / IXMINIS (I-X-Minis)
If I know the answer I'll tell you the answer, and if I don't, I'll just respond, cleverly.

As suggested on facebook: Borghar.

Mainly because when the budding adventurer stumbles across him its the first mumbled thing that escapes their lips.
