Name the Smithy God!

According to pubby, "Also, the name is currently a placeholder, but I don't want to see any name recommendations in this thread. If you have a really good name then you can PM me, but don't waste space by discussing it here."

I say we over-discuss his name to DEATH here!

Not necessarily a "he".

RULE: One name per post. One consecutive post per participant. I'll go first.


I propose the name for the Fire / Smithy god be "Wheal".

Re: Name the Smithy God!

Viashino: Basically it is an old whim of mine, but it actually serves some useful purposes. For one, the number of gods is limited to 27. Next, we can nicely list the gods in ?/G and initials access god descriptions. And finally, even though nobody made use of it yet, I could imagine a Crawl-related game where gods play a role, and it'd work well in ASCII :)

how do random gods fit into this equation? you code in 26 gods, and force every random god name to start with the 27th?

random gods start with punctuation

Actually I think one solution I discussed with dpeg ages ago is to have random god names always displayed in quotes, so they'd technically begin with ", but I don't know if that stuck.

Also I do like the sound of Ingvar.

It's a thing in the sense that it's an idea dpeg's been knocking around for a while and would like to see implemented someday. It's still pretty much in the preliminary design phase.

Ingvar is a real Icelandic name. Which means its even MORE suitable for a God of fiery smithing. I also vote for Ingvar.

It is a pipe dream. You can read about it here. I cannot promise they will ever materialise (in particular because I have flaked already once on them). On the other hand, I believe they would rock so much, and I will definitely keep trying. As nicolae says, it's certainly nothing you should expect to see in any particular release. However, I have a pretty clear vision and that is outlined on the dev wiki.
