Character Contest 90: Fifth Anniversary Random Edition

This was the most random thing I could find on the Internet. That was safe for work.

We haven’t done a “random name” character contest in half a year, so I think it’s about time we revisited this always-fun concept.

It’s pretty straightforward and a great way to stretch your creative muscles.

Whoever comes up with the best character based on a random name generated by Seventh Sanctum Superhero/Villain Name Generator will win a) his or her choice of either any item they like to be included in the final HeroMachine 3 version; b) a portrait to be included in the final HeroMachine 3 version, or c) a “sketch of the day” style custom drawing where you pick the theme and I do the drawing however I like. The rules are fairly simple:

The person with the winning entry as selected by our expert panel (i.e. me) will win their choice of a) a portrait to go in HeroMachine 3, b) an item to go in HeroMachine 3, or c) a custom black and white “Sketch of the Day” style drawing (also by me). The rules otherwise are the same as always:

  • Go to the Seventh Sanctum Superhero/Villain Name Generator and choose “10” from the number of names to generate. Leave the other selection boxes at their default and hit “Generate”. Your character(s) must be based on one of these generated names. Try your best to limit yourself to one spin of the wheel instead of generating names over and over till you get one you like!
  • All entries must be in JPG or PNG form (BMPs are too big), posted to a publicly accessible website (like ImageShack, PhotoBucket, the UGO Forums, whatever);
  • Entries must be made as a comment or comments to this post, containing a link directly to the image and the character name;
  • The image cannot have been used in any previous HeroMachine character design contest;
  • Please name your files as [your name]-[character name].[file extension]. So DiCicatriz, for instance, would save his “Bayou Belle” character image as DiCicatriz-BayouBelle.png.
  • Please make the link go directly to the image (like this) and not to a hosting jump page (like this). If you see “preview” or “rotate” somewhere in the link you’re probably doing it wrong.
  • All entries must be in by next Monday, when I’ll choose a winner.

No limit on entries this week, so knock yourselves out. Just make them good!

  1. Man I wish I had time to enter this contest, because “Giggle Crush” is almost too good of a name to pass up. Though “Soul Tiger” is pretty provocative…

  2. Woody: Man I wish I had time to enter this contest, because “Giggle Crush” is almost too good of a name to pass up.

    How did you guess my stripper name?! GET OUT OF MY HEAD, MAN!

  3. i just did roll the once and least 5 of the name have potential.
    thought ”sorceress woman” is kind of a weak name. and I hesitate to make a ”vibrospear” character, for kind of obvious reasons.xD
    i already love this generator. :)

    On the contrary, I can virtually guaranTEE I’d pick up an issue of “Sorceress Woman and Her Amazing Vibrospear”.

  5. Here are mine to choose from…
    Armor Rain
    Clock Tarantula
    Cry Chaser
    Hot Monsoon
    Icthyopaw
    Lightning Beast
    Oceanic Seer
    Spike Sting
    Star Chance
    Xenoplague

    Hot Monsoon has potential, but Xenoplague really rolls off the tongue. Hmmmmmm…

  6. Jeff Hebert: On the contrary, I can virtually guaranTEE I’d pick up an issue of “Sorceress Woman and Her Amazing Vibrospear”.

    adult rated just for its name! xD

  7. maniacmick

    Jeff Hebert: How did you guess my stripper name?! GET OUT OF MY HEAD, MAN!

    I thought we only revealed such things on sharing day, Jeff lol

  8. i roll new names (for fun not for the contest) and I’ve got baffling results:
    Lizard Bombadier
    Psychobutterfly
    vine tornado
    god gal
    Androlizard
    Cry Mage
    wood siege (which is only funny when you consider that french ”siège” means seat. behold, the heroic chair of wood!)

  9. http://www.heromachine.com/blog/wp-content/forum-image-uploads/vampyrist/2012/05/Vampyrist-Shield-Shooter.png

    Shield Shooter, a new type of right control. Riot shield meets sand bag shotgun.

  10. Aeon Dolphin
    Blast Shaman
    Cat Fang
    Fortune Raven
    Lupomage
    Mechacide
    Murder Orca
    Universe Pearl
    Swimmer Mace
    Tempusslicer

    … that last one doesn’t sound clean

  11. A LOT of these sound like Megaman villains. “Aeon Dolphin”, “Blast Shaman”, “Murder Orca”. And then you’ve got the good ol’ filthy ones like Tempusslicer…

    And “Cry Mage” would be awesome as an Emo kid Harry Potter knockoff…

  12. So this is what I rolled, and no I am not going to be doing the Rotting Taint, or Whale Charmer. Go ahead and laugh, that is what it really gave me -_-

    Aerial Prophet
    Atomihit
    Cleric Beam
    Club Girl

    Bonne chance, tout le monde!

  15. I have some promising options here:

    Hacking Catch
    Illusion King
    Macromace
    Mechatiger

  16. @Lime, ooh the illusion king sounds kinda cool, you could make a character kinda like Mysterio just not so much like a purple and green douch with a fish bowl on his head LOL.

  17. gozuforce: adult rated just for its name! xD

    So this is what I came up with. Out of the ten names “FireHornet” was the only one that made any kind of sense.

    http://i1152.photobucket.com/albums/p495/jeremythurlow/FireHornet.jpg

  23. Hmm. Pretty mediocre names; this one’s probably the best of the ones I got.

    http://www.heromachine.com/blog/wp-content/forum-image-uploads/the-imp/2012/05/Imp-GoldSpider.png

  24. Jeff! Did you ever read “The Davenport?” One of those sci-fi short-shorts with the twisty end? Your illustration reminds me of it.

    I have no idea what a Canophase is supposed to be. I’m going to arbitrarily decide it’s a cross between ‘canopy’ and ‘phase’, but I don’t know what that is either!

    Fake Basher
    Midnight Goddess

    This link leads to a private album that requires a password. You might want to reconsider where you post the image.

  51. Marquis? Canophase would be cano- from canine and -phase might mean amalgam, solution, or state. State could be an odd weredog, the rest sounds weirder.
    Does anyone besides me think Leaf Blaster should be a stylized leafblower?

  52. Tarkabarka

    Kakikaji:
    I had only a few good options but “Jade Smasher sounded cool

  53. Thundersong

    Heyla!

    Sorry about the password. I made the album set to “Private”, thinking people who had the link, could still get to it. I set it to the public settings so, the link should work. Not very proficient in using online albums.

    So here is the first one.

  66. Here is EBONY SPEAR!

    I imagined the concept more as to ever holds the blacken spear becomes possessed to conquer all!

    Not alright – This is the correct link.

  75. Tarkabarka: Not alright – This is the correct link.

    http://i1244.photobucket.com/albums/gg564/Monalux/Monalux-Obsidionburn.jpg

    If you use firefox. Right Click on the picture and the first row.

    The best way to do it as Tarkabarka mentioned is to

    1. Right Click the image in your album.
    2. Choose “Open Image in New Tab or Window”
    3. Copy the Address from the address bar

    This way your link goes directly to the image and not to the album.

    Bee Empress
    Close-up

  79. So the best and most humorous name that generated was ‘Sham Eagle’. My first thoughts went to Sham Wow! and then to a bird made of cloth. Then I thought, why not a really awful superhero? I know a lot of you rock HM’s face off with your creations– this is not one of them.

    Thus, I present ‘The Eagle’… or as citizens call him ‘Sham Eagle’. He’s not the hero America needs, but probably the one it deserves.

    Ok, so I’ve been using your character generator for… well, it’s been a while, and I finally got around to joining the site when I saw all of the fun stuff that goes on and the opportunity to participate in the betterment of an already awesome bit o’ software. My list of 10 randomly generated names follows:

    Atomishadow
    Biological Chaser
    Bird Charmer
    Golem Paragon
    Iron Girl
    Maw Sorceress
    Tarantula Hunter
    Thunder Fraud
    Tree Armor
    Vermillion Tide

    I wanted to do one or two more but this weekend is going to be quite busy, so I’ll have to settle for four.

    First is Atomishadow: http://i1051.photobucket.com/albums/s435/PloughedJester/PloughedJester-Atomishadow.png

    Second is Golem Paragon:
    http://i1051.photobucket.com/albums/s435/PloughedJester/PloughedJester-GolemParagon.png

    Third is Tree Armor:
    http://i1051.photobucket.com/albums/s435/PloughedJester/PloughedJester-TreeArmor.png

    Last is Iron Girl: This one was just plain fun to make!
    http://i1051.photobucket.com/albums/s435/PloughedJester/PloughedJester-IronGirl.png

    But the rest sounded pretty good:
    Chillia
    Comet Beast
    Compuchase
    Dirt Slash
    Fake Insect
    Mechanical Spike
    Organoswimmer
    Smashing Deciever
    Tempushaunt

  83. Axe Wing:
    A splitting headache if I ever saw one… hahaha… o.o

  85. It’s a hobo, it’s a mental patient, it’s…. Delusion Man!

    http://i650.photobucket.com/albums/uu224/seamusmcfrost/maniacmick-delusionman.png?t=1336800194

  86. Serpent Dynamo
    not very good, mainly because of the lightnings, but it’s been hard to make them more or less on the thing, so…

    Entry #4: Crimson God
    http://i1111.photobucket.com/albums/h464/Kaylin88100/Kaylin88100-Crimson_God.png

    Also, I realised I forgot to name my first entry properly, so here she is again with the correct name:
    http://i1111.photobucket.com/albums/h464/Kaylin88100/Kaylin88100-FlameSpider.png

  88. Kaylin88100

    Entry #7: Minisapphire
    http://i1111.photobucket.com/albums/h464/Kaylin88100/Kaylin88100-Minisapphire.png
    A superhero called Sapphire whose superpower is to shrink herself down into a “chibi” style child version of herself, which she refers to as “Mini-Sapphire”. More useful than you might think – people always underestimate children and she can get in just about anywhere with her “cute lost child” act.

  89. Brain Snare
    Canine Negator
    Computer Magician
    Cybernetic Brain
    Diviner Siege
    Jet Noble
    Martial Shooter
    Reptile Wasp
    Trick Brain
    Vibrogal

    I couldn’t believe my luck …
    VIBROGAL!!

    I have had a New Mutant named Vibra in our X-Men campain for years, and while I did do a HM of her and got someone to do a photomanip of her, I have never updated her with HM3

    So here is Rosa Maria Esmerelda Rodriquez aka “Vibrogal”

    (I have to admit she is one of about 3 vibro characters that has learned to channel their epilespy extrenally creating vibrations and earth tremors.
    What can I say wishful thinking for my nephew who has epilepsy.)

    Entry #1
    Vibrogal

    and in case anyone one like to see the originals:

  90. Jeff Hebert: On the contrary, I can virtually guaranTEE I’d pick up an issue of “Sorceress Woman and Her Amazing Vibrospear”.

    aaargh! i’m still laughing at that one! XD

  91. Entries #1 and #2

    In the land of Eldar, the major forces of power are concentrated in the five masteries (the five types of magic that exist in the world). Those five types are: Elemental Magic, Illusion, Enchantment, Healing Magic, and Black Magic. However in Eldar there is a legend of a man named Zephyr Pierce, who is known as The Golem Master, for he is said to have developed a sixth mastery of magic known as Golem Mastery, where he can actually breath life into lifeless automatons in order to create Golems.
    Here is Zephyr Pierce:
    http://fc05.deviantart.net/fs70/f/2012/133/a/a/zypher_pierce_by_onikagenoken-d4znv7l.png

    And here is one of his most famed creations, called the Arachnogolem. It isn’t dangerous and famous because of its brute strength (though it is quite strong), but for its ability to regenerate from almost any injury instantly.

    http://fc05.deviantart.net/fs70/f/2012/133/b/8/arachnogolem_by_onikagenoken-d4znwft.png

  92. It’s not easy being blue. Especially when you’re naturally a very shy, conservative person and you suddenly find yourself being shoved into a skimpy outfit and dragged along by your experienced super-hero friend for some late-night hero work almost immediately after gaining super powers due to a bite from a radioactive blue eagle.

    Too bad that’s exactly the situation this city’s newest super, Sapphire Eagle, finds herself in tonight.

  93. #2 Jet Noble

    OK lets face it almost everyone would do some airplane type thing, but really vehicles and mechs … well, they aren’t my thing. People are.
    So here is my Jet Noble: Mwana Wa Mfalme

    Cool! :D

  96. Ten for me :)

    Maw Negator- He was an astroanthropologist whose travels led him to a barren world, the ruins of a once prosperous technological wonderland seemingly wiped out in an instant. During his excavations on the planet he deduced that their great catastrophe stemmed from a single source, a great energy reactor in the center of the planet. He went in alone, against the warnings of his research team, and was exposed to the strange energy. It changed him. His body became a beacon for this energy and he was forced to seal himself in a containment suit. It warped his sanity and he fashioned himself a destroyer, seeking new worlds and lifeforms for the energy to consume. This energy negates the physical laws of the universe, warping gravity, unhinging time. With it he can lay waste to galaxies. He channels his energy through the gaping mechanical jaws in his suit… becoming the Maw Negator!

    http://i1126.photobucket.com/albums/l607/DiCicatriz/HM%20Contests/DiCicatriz-NegatorMaw.png

    Cat Bombadier- A once high profile cat burglar who thought himself somewhat of a modern day Robin Hood, stealing from the rich and giving to the poor. He was framed for the murder of wealthy media mogul, caught as a pawn in the schemes of ambitious corporate figureheads and left to rot as their patsy.. Years in prison, subjected to inhuman abuse by corrupt guards on the payroll of his framers, led him to adopt a more sinister attitude. After a brazen escape, he armed himself with sophisticated explosives and targets the businesses of his jailers, concerning himself only with revenge. He is… the Cat Bombadier!

    http://i1126.photobucket.com/albums/l607/DiCicatriz/HM%20Contests/DiCicatriz-CatBombadier.png

    Crimson Flow- Tariq was the apprentice to a powerful sorcerer, performing menial tasks for him in the hopes of gleaning the slightest knowledge from him concerning the Dark Arts. His master was not unkind and Tariq grew to see him as a father figure, never having known his own. There came a time when the enemies of his master conspired together and stormed the Hidden Citadel where they lived. In a desperate bid to save his master, Tariq drank from the Forbidden Chalice, which housed the Sanguine Essence of 1000 Unnamed Gods. The energy burned through Tariq’s body, replacing his very blood. He lashed out at the individuals who had assaulted his master, killing all of them with a single devastating gesture. Now the Sanguine Essence is irrevocably housed within his body, granting Tariq terrible untold power. It courses through him, pulsating just beneath the surface of his skin. Tariq is learning to control the tide of this power, the ebb and rush through his body, calling himself… The Crimson Flow!

    http://i1126.photobucket.com/albums/l607/DiCicatriz/HM%20Contests/DiCicatriz-CrimsonFlow.png

    Dirt Searcher- An early product of the government’s attempts at genetically engineering superhumans, this poor soul was granted immense superhuman strength, incalculable durability, and the ability to survive for vast periods of time without oxygen, physical nourishment, or rest. Unfortunately his skin was left to be extremely photosensitive, burning terribly at even the slightest exposure to sunlight. He was outfitted with a suit that would protect him from the sun and also supply him with limited life support. Relegated to the catacombs underneath The Facility, he tunnels tirelessly through the rock always seeking something known only to him. He is… the Dirt Searcher!

    http://i1126.photobucket.com/albums/l607/DiCicatriz/HM%20Contests/DiCicatriz-DirtSearcher.png

    Hydrohurricane- Gabriela Esquevez was a long-time crimefighter with the illustrious super group The Elementals. Each of them was empowered by a mystic force that enabled them control over one key element. She was known as the heroine Hurricane, commanding the force of air and creating high-speed winds. An encounter with a powerful deity left the team reeling after losing their powers temporarily. Upon defeating their foe, they found their abilities had switched. Hurricane found herself with the water-controlling abilities of her teammate Whirlpool. Her natural sensibilities towards air led her to manipulate water in a similar manner, in powerful gusts and cyclonic motions. She continues to fight crime, taking the new name… Hydrohurricane!

    http://i1126.photobucket.com/albums/l607/DiCicatriz/HM%20Contests/DiCicatriz-Hydrohurricane.png

    Mental Duchess- Her Ladyship comes from a noble bloodline, carrying untold psychic power, although she had only ever used her gifts for healing the mentally ill and spreading joy to others. She was betrothed to a nobleman once. It was an arranged marriage, but she grew to love him. Apparently he did not return her feelings. She ignored his infidelities initially for the sake of her own happiness, but there came an instance when she walked in on him in the middle of a rather improper… dalliance. Not a soul ever knew exactly what happened to him, but his mistress was found stumbling in the neighboring woods, regressed mentally to infancy. Any messengers sent to discern what had happened would return with their minds warped irreparably, screaming of terrors and nightmares seen only by their eyes. She remained in her tower, and pity to any who attempt to coax her out. Her title is now infamous, whispered in fear, she is… the Mental Duchess.

    http://i1126.photobucket.com/albums/l607/DiCicatriz/HM%20Contests/DiCicatriz-MentalDuchess.png

    Shadow Fraud- It hunts in deep alleys, forgotten caverns, abandoned catacombs… any place where it can blend into the shadowy surroundings. It poses as a simple shadow, perhaps even your own. By the time it opens the first of its many eyes, it is too late. Uncountable tendrils emerge, ensnaring you, pulling you further into itself. Take solace in the fact that it will be over quickly, your body dissolved and converted into the shadow energy that sustains it. To the outside world it will be as if you simply vanished off of the face of the planet. Legend whispers its true name, too horrible to imagine, but most know it as the… Shadow Fraud.

    http://i1126.photobucket.com/albums/l607/DiCicatriz/HM%20Contests/DiCicatriz-ShadowFraud.png

    Spiritian- Ian is a low-level systems analyst at a major accounting firm, dissatisfied with what he deems to be a boring unfulfilled life. He dreams of places far beyond his own, of impossible worlds and fantastic adventures, but dismisses such notions as childish. Little does he know that repressing such emotions has awakened his latent astral manipulation talents. As Ian sleeps he projects vast amounts of psionic energy onto the astral plane, creating cities, countries, whole worlds, populated by various projections of his subconscious. As the projection gets bigger it threatens to swallow the psyches of other dreamers, drawing them into Ian’s world. In this world he exists as a spiritual champion, he is Spiritian!

    http://i1126.photobucket.com/albums/l607/DiCicatriz/HM%20Contests/DiCicatriz-Spiritian.png

    Strike Killer- Has your labor force somehow gotten the ridiculous notion into their head that they should be treated like human beings? Have they made ridiculous demands such as, overtime pay, vacation, ‘benefits’, and the like? If your lazy labor force refuses to work until these ‘reasonable demands’ are met, look no further than our state of the art design. This autonomous self-sufficient worker has multiple limbs for heavy labor, or delicate repairs. Its processors allow for fast and easy clerical work and accounting. On top of that its self-sustaining power source and lack of need for rest means it can keep going long past closing time. If you’re dealing with a strike then you need… the Strike Killer!

    http://i1126.photobucket.com/albums/l607/DiCicatriz/HM%20Contests/DiCicatriz-StrikeKiller.png

    Pride Ray- Julian was a social activist living on the edge of the law. Oftentimes he found himself fleeing from law enforcement, but he knew the city better than they did. Or at least he thought he did. On one such occasion, Julian found himself in a subway catacomb that few had encountered. He discovered a mysterious glowing triangle that upon closer examination seemed to evaporate into a shower of light. After this experience Julian found he could project a rainbow colored beam from his eyes. The beam seemed to instill a powerful sense of unity and empathy in people, giving them the confidence and compassion to stand up for what they believed in. Julian uses this ability to inspire the people of his community, known as… Pride Ray!

  97. GuyGenesis

    I was thinking about making a couple more, I had “Chill Snake” which brought back memories of my first Random name entrant Astro-Cat. And then I had “Night Hack” which instantly brought to mind a poor excuse for a batman wannabe. But I don’t really think I’ll be tackling those.

    Two entrants using the same name, “Winter Strike”, but with alternate spelling.

    1. Winter Strike
    http://i1059.photobucket.com/albums/t440/GuyGenesis/Contest%20Entrants/GuyGenesis-WinterStrike-1.png

    2. Winter Stryke
    http://i1059.photobucket.com/albums/t440/GuyGenesis/Contest%20Entrants/GuyGenesis-WinterStryke.png

  98. Okay, so I had a random idea, started making it, and in the process I realized it would fit perfectly with the Nemesis Chancellor name. So, I jumped on that theme and went with it. I like it leagues better than the first one I did with the name, but that kind of makes sense seeing that rediscovered HM a week or so ago and I’m still trying to figure out how to use it optimally.

    Let me know if I’m not supposed to do this, but I checked the rules again and I didn’t see anything about doing more than one character based on the same name, so here it is:

    Nemesis Chancellor (2): http://img594.imageshack.us/img594/1047/shiborethnemesischancel.png

    If it’s not okay to do this, please ignore this post.

    If it is okay, I might go back and rework a couple of my previous entries with some of the new things I’ve learned…

  99. Okay, I probably won’t have time to tweak any of the others. Here’s a slightly revised version of Light Empress: http://img217.imageshack.us/img217/8139/shiborehlightempress2.png

    Again, if I’m not supposed to do this, please ignore this, with my apologies.

  100. The names I got…

    Amethyst Hound
    Cat Blaster
    Cutting Fever
    Enchantress Axe
    Lie Star
    Quick Vine
    Seeddroid
    Slicing Chopper
    Ultimate Priest
    Wind Whale

    The evil Mr. Mesmer (sociopathic hypnotist and regular winner of the “most difficult name to say whilst drunk” award from “Villainry Monthly”) has captured the unfortunate Ruby Avenger and hypnotised her into believing that she is a super villainess. Unfortunately, due to the fact that English is not his first language, Mr. Mesmer relies on internet translation sites when creating names for his minions. Occasionally some things get confused along the way, as it has here, where Ruby Avenger (real name Kitty Gunn) has been transformed into the nefarious “Cat Blaster”. Still, it’s no laughing matter if you’re on the receiving end…

    (No actual cats were harmed in the making of this image).

  101. Well, got one in this time…

    Having all sorts of issues. Replacing the AC & furnace on the house, jacking around with the utilities companies because they can’t get my account transfers straight, my bank has been over-charging me for months but won’t credit my account… and… my laptop is overheating.

    Besides, you guys are seriously killing this contest! No way can I catch up this late. Alas, reality beckons…

    Here was my spin:

    Bee Emperess
    Cinder Cleric
    Ghost Tracker
    Glacier Dynamo
    Invunerable Leaf (He may bend, but he will never break!)
    Joker Flame
    Photostone
    Smash Emperor
    Strike Tempest
    Terrashamaness

  102. Shiboreth:
    Okay, I probably won’t have time to tweak any of the others. Here’s a slightly revised version of Light Empress: http://img217.imageshack.us/img217/8139/shiborehlightempress2.png

    Again, if I’m not supposed to do this, please ignore this, with my apologies.

    You are fine. There are no limits for this particular contest. I do it all the time (mostly because I changed my mind about something or needed to fix an item). Jeff will look at them all.

  103. Ploughed Jester: And that’s it for my very first Character Creation contest

    Welcome, thanks so much for joining us! It’s nice to see so many new folks this week.

  104. SpellCheckingQuill

    Yay! I love name generator contests. Coming fashionably late to the party, but I claim a road trip followed by first two days at a new job as my excuse.

    In order of their creation…

    Archwarrior – face it, archangels are BAMFs. They have to start every single human conversation with “Be not afraid.” Cupid need not apply.
    http://img19.imageshack.us/img19/3429/quillarchwarrior.png

    Jackal Butterfly – is there a specific term for a humanoid with combined features from TWO animal species? Besides “too much”?
    http://img715.imageshack.us/img715/8430/quilljackalbutterfly.png

    Droid Fraud – I know so many people that would be this guy. I love them all dearly.

    Charm Web – not arachnophobe-friendly.

    Ebony Cascade – sounds like a line of emo Rapunzel poetry.

  106. Hoping to sneak in under the wire with a first time submission.

    Apex Gale- Abigail Crestwall has the ability to control the winds. As Apex Gale, she is the top scout and strategist for a group of super-powered heroes known as The Chosen Few. In addition to her wind mastery, she wears a set of metal wings that allow her more efficient and longer distance flight without overtaxing her powers.

    It’s great that you’ve made 10 amazing pictures for this contest, but did you have to go and make 10 interesting and well-developed stories to go along with those pictures? Don’t you need a break from being awesome and creative? ;)

    @maniacmic: I really like the angle you took with your White Whale! I don’t think I would have come up with anything close to that!

    @SpellCheckingQuill: Nice entries! I laughed at the Droid Fraud, and Charm Web is very lovely. :)

  109. Allow me to introduce you to Xenoduke, Lord and Protector of the Grand Duchy of the Beta Larnygian System, one of the first extrasolar societies humanity came in contact with as a result of the Great Explorations in the mid-twenty-second century (400 years ago). It’s hard to say whether Xenoduke counts as a Villain or a Hero: one of his biggest drives is for power, which some might say puts him towards the “evil” end of the spectrum, but he always tries to use that power for what he thinks are the best interests of his duchy. Sometimes that has meant teaming up with Earth’s super heroes, and sometimes that has meant opposing them.

  110. Beware the Poison Laugh, the ancient, evil monster who slowly saps your life away while all the while you laugh because it hurts.

    If anyone’s interested, here’s the entirety of my roll from the name generator:
    Canine Thought
    Galmancer
    Green Lie
    Murk Razor
    Poison Laugh
    Poison Track
    Red Trapper
    Sapphire Eagle
    Wolf Illusionist
    Xenoduke

  111. OK folks, entries are closed! Thanks for the overwhelming response, and I’m particularly happy to see so many first-timers.

    Good luck! I’ll have the results up later this morning.

  112. DiCicatriz:
    Ten for me

    Overachieve much? ***Grumble, grumble, kick dirt, grumble, spit***

  113. Tough decision this week. Many great characters and concepts!
