    Let's face it. Having three main characters with names that sound almost identical is very confusing. I have already seen people confuse their names a lot.

    Lirch, Pirch, and Firch.

    Since the first map has already been released, I can't change his name any more. But I have though up a few other names for Pirch and Firch; choose one of the suggestions or post your own.

    And please vote seriously. Don't vote for them all.

    The choosen names are far too complex. 50% of people will not even say them properly to themselves.

    Not true, in Final Fantasy series few of them started with a V. Same goes for WC3 and most games.

    Well, the names seem to be a little complicated...
    I made a few research, and I came up with this one:

    Vir Pertinax - it is from latin and it means "evil hero"

    I will try to find better names but .... I promise nothing, creation and originality are difficult to find nowadays.

    Vir Pertinax sounds more like a title than a name.

    I could use it in chants though, in cinematics.

    Well, I actually don't like that you are changing the names cause it's cute everyone nearly is named the same thing with a few changes. Anyway, I think you should keep the names.

    Strange how everyone seems to like the -is and -us endings. (Of course apostrophes are good too, but hey.)

    I like Varthus and Pirchis. Anything more than these and they sound like legendary myths in stories that are supposed to be "long forgotten" and often thought to be "non-existant". :b

    I actually won't vote, mainly because I don't like the names in cause. Although Varthus seems the best (in my opinion), the names have no meaning.
    I will try to find a few more names. It seems that people like Spanish names, well, that's no problem, I can speak some Spanish and I should be able to help =)

    Expect a few more names the next week (when I have time to think about them lol)

    The new names are Pirchis and Var'thun. (Varthus sounds funny when you shout it)
