Description Edit | History

Publisher's blurb

"Jeder Held braucht einen Namen mit dem man ihn ruft, den seine Gegner fürchten lernen und mit dem man seiner Taten gedenkt, wenn er selbst längst Geschichte ist.“

- altes Aventurisches Sprichwort

Dieser Band ist ein unschätzbares Nachschlagewerk für all jene, die Interesse an phantasievoller Benennung und aventurischer Namensherkunft haben. Meister, die schnell einen Namen nachschlagen wollen oder händeringend nach einer passenden Bezeichnung für einen NSC suchen, werden hier ebenso fündig wie Spieler, die auf der Suche nach einem klangvollen Namen für ihren Helden sind.

Aventurische Namen enthält:

- Namen der menschlichen Kulturen Aventuriens von A bis Z

- Namen kulturschaffender nichtmenschlicher Spezies von A bis Z, darunter neben den verschiedenen Elfen- und Zwergenvölkern auch Echsenmenschen, Goblins, Grolme, Oger, Orks und Trolle

- historische Namenslisten aus dem alten Bosparan, aus Cyclopea, den Landen der Urtulamiden und der Alhani sowie Namen der legendären Hochelfen

Die Namensgebung der Kulturen und Spezies wird ausführlich erläutert, und es gibt zahlreiche Beispiele für Vor- und Familiennamen, Namen des Adels, Vater- und Mutternamen, Ehren- und Schandnamen, und auch die Benennung nach bedeutenden Helden oder Heiligen sowie Übersetzungsbeispiele aus fremden Sprachen kommen nicht zu kurz.

Exkurse beleuchten Spezialthemen, etwa den Einsatz von Anagrammen und sprechenden Namen am Spieltisch oder die Herkunft des Allerweltsnamen „Alrik“. Es gibt weiterhin Auswahllisten für Magier- und Weihenamen, Bühnen- und Künstlernamen, Modenamen vom Südkontinent Uthuria sowie für die Benennung nach den Zwölfgöttern.

Aventurische Namen enthält darüber hinaus auch Neue Vor- und Nachteile und Sonderfertigkeiten rund um die Namensgebung. In einem Anhang finden sich Listen zu allerlei nützlichen Themengebieten wie Namen für Reittiere, Tierbegleiter oder persönliche Waffen und ein Namensgenerator für zufällige mittelreichische oder tulamidische Namen.


"Every hero needs a name with which to call him, which his opponents learn to fear and with which to remember his deeds, when he himself has long since become history."

old Aventurian proverb

This volume is an invaluable reference work for all those who are interested in imaginative naming and aventurian origin. Masters who want to look up a name quickly or are desperately looking for a suitable name for an NPC will find it here, as will players who are looking for a sonorous name for their hero.

Aventurian names:

Names of the human cultures of Aventuria from A to Z

-Names of culturally creative non-human species from A to Z, including lizard people, goblins, grolms, ogres, orcs and trolls in addition to the various elven and dwarf races

-Historical lists of names from the ancient Bosparan, Cyclopea, the lands of the Urtulamides and the Alhani as well as names of the legendary high elves

The naming of cultures and species is explained in detail, and there are numerous examples of first and family names, names of the nobility, names of fathers and mothers, names of honour and shame, as well as names of important heroes or saints and examples of translations from foreign languages.

Excursuses shed light on special topics such as the use of anagrams and meaningful names at the console or the origin of the common name "Alrik". There are also selection lists for magician and consecration names, stage and artist names, fashion names from the southern continent of Uthuria and for the name after the twelve gods.

Aventurian names also contain new advantages and disadvantages and special naming skills. An appendix contains lists of all kinds of useful topics such as names for mounts, animal companions or personal weapons and a name generator for random medium-rich or Tulamidian names.
