You're welcome. To be fair I've played Trey for twelve or thirteen years now.
RL name was already taken, thanks @Trey. So I went with Seth because I liked the name.
Kandra, so you aren't a grown up version of a mist wraith who consumes corpses for body parts?
Is it worth reading? Gotta say I don't hate the naming convention.
Vesios sounded cool.
About 2 months before I started playing, I was running a tabletop RPG for my friends. The game revolved around discovering the fate of a centuries-dead ruler named Mazel Wan, and eventually defeating the ghost he had become. Over the course of the game, the players discovered that Mazel Wan's soul, and the souls of his four closest advisors, had split in half. The final bosses of the run were the ghosts of half their souls, and the PCs were the reincarnations of the other halves. Between the mysteries, the oddly symmetrical fights, and the flashback dreams, my friends said it was the best run they'd played in years. When it came time to make a character here, Mazel held a special place for me, so I went with it.As for where Mazel Wan came from in the original game...when I make up names, I just start speaking gibberish aloud until I come up with something I like.
Got mine from Warhammer Fantasy Battle. "Sarathai" is one of the runes in the High Elf language.
Tecton, the Terraformer has bestowed His divine favour upon you. It will last for approximately 1 Achaean month.
I wanted to do Razzmatazz, then thought no one would ever take me seriously...but I am starting to think Razzlo isn't much better. A name is a name though.
My first mentor was @Jonesey so that pretty much explains it.
- With sharp, crackling tones, Kyrra tells you, "The ladies must love you immensely."
- (Eleusian Ranger Techs): Savira says, "Most of the hard stuff seem to have this built in code like: If adventurer_hitting_me = "Sarathai" then send("terminate and selfdestruct")."
- Makarios says, "Serve well and perish."
- Xaden says, "Xaden confirmed scrub 2017."
I've played Seth for just as long. You beat me by 5 achaean years for the name, so a couple months before me? Oh well, it's worked out!

Suvaad was originally conceived of as a fan character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, specifically an inhabitant of Vanaheim. He was at first themed after a specific character from Norse mythology, Svaðilfari. (Yes, that one. Yes, I'm serious.)
After a while, though, he became very much his own character, and I found a way to alter the original name that better suited the "fantasy Arabic" culture I had placed him in. "Suvaad" is a meaningless name derived from the first syllable of the mythological name, while his surname "Al'faris" means "the knight," or more literally (and appropriately) "the horseman," in Arabic.
Needless to say, the version of this character that appears in Achaea is extremely far removed from what he started as. Except for the hooves.
