    I will see with The_Mirai can we create world map and present it to you.
    Maybe that can help as well to pick the best opinions :)

    Suggestions so far are really great.

    Correct me if I am not right, however I am right, these are from book Eragon :p

    Barst: General of Urû'baen at the final battle with Galbatorix
    Nadrag: Phew I dunno what was this
    Umaroth: Vrael's dragon, white one, and he slained at the battle of Vroengard, just his Elundarí left at the Vault of Souls.
    Hrothgar: Dwarf king( the 42th one )
    Vrael: Leader of the dragon riders at the dawn of the Folsworns
    Neal: Was the pseudonym of Brom when he and Eragon visited Teirm
    Volund: Ancient dwarven war hammer that was forged by the first dwarf king and used by the dwarf kings for ages.


    Cool names anyway, but they already in use. Better to use some original.

    Some of them are yes but you can also accuse of taking Hrothgar from various other places like Icewind Dale which was the original place it came from. And even though now that you say it many I didn't even think about even though Barst, Umaroth and Vrael was I didn't realize that I almost identicly coppied other names like Volund. However if I wanted to copy names from Eragon just blanclly I could have given you alot of other examples like Aren, Beloth, Gleadr, Shruikan, Orik, Solumbom, Grimr, Shadowhunter, Yelloweyes, Firnen, Islanzadi, Blagden, Belgabad and alot of others. I could also tell you that all the songs I've suggested I've heard from either Ulduar the Movie http://www.modenstudios.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=37&Itemid=1 or the Nightwish songs from Imaginearium album.

    If I wanted to bite names from video games and such, I'd use Skyrim as a reference for everything. But I need something original as to bring a certain level of "uniqueness" to SotP. No one want's to see Aragon and Boromir as the names of the characters, or Mordor and Minas Tirith as the names of the areas/cities, am I right?

    Anyways, great suggestions so far! Keep 'em coming! :thumbs_up:

    Oh, I almost forgot! If you could suggest a name of a RACE (like Orcs, Elves, Kajit and others) that would be great. No need to wrack your brains about it, just give it a thought. I can use it in the story, but it is not really necessary, I can just go around it.

    :cool:

    Spirits - Ancient creatures which are used to live in forests and desert. They are messengers of the gods and they can be very dangerous if needed. Killing a spirit will curse the killer to became spirit himself after death. Life of a spirit is like hell all the time pain and they are trying to find way to escape with their anger. Some rumors tells that they have some contacts with undead or dead creatures.

    Reptillian - Reptillians are a reptile creature that have evolved from saltwater crocodiles and where named by humans since they were incapebl of talk but stole the ability from some of their human prisoners and are now capeble of talking and even though they've never been friends with the human race they have a agreed on peace to avoid loss of life. Even thogh they usally stand on their back legs which are larger and more muscular then those of crocodiles, however they hunt just like crocodiles which is by laying still in the water waiting for the pray to come to them and when the prey is stuck they do their deathroll. They have inherited the saltwater crocodiles size (and alitle more) since the saltwater crocodile is the largest crocodile the reptillians are larger then any human. Reptillians also don't use armor since they also have inherited the crocodiles thick scale which outmatches most armors. Unlike humans the reptillians don't have fingers which means they are incapeble of grabing things, tools and wepons but their teeths and claws makes more perfect wepons then any swords.

    No, no, guys; you're missing the point. Remixer, -Kobas- already has Spirits as creeps, so that wont work, and lowe1994ba, Reptilians are not original.

    Try thinking of a name that's something between Elves and Humans - like, Elvans! Holy crap, that actually sounds good! Lol :D I'm using it!

    Okay, race name suggestions are WITHDRAWN! But feel free to post some anyway.

    My ideas are much more important than -Kobas- so he can remove spirits. So there also can´t be ent cause they are as creeps. Hmm let me thing. What about Unelfs?

    So you think that Khajit was a good example for a name when you wanted a mix of human and elf?

    Khajit was just a random suggestion of an existing (?) race. Look, it's not important anymore. Seriously, just drop the whole 'race name' subject.

    More importantly, I posted an important update in SotP history thread. I suggest you read it.
