New names for runewords

Post by Metalistas on Mon Jan 20, 2014 9:07 pm

Ok, i gave it some time (like an hour) and tortured my head, my books and some google search. I came with some names for already excisting runewords. I only give suggestions for the 'new' runewords that are made by those colorful great runes from Chrysaor sewers in Kurast Bazaar. They idea was pretty simple i turned into the Ancient Greece for help and they gave me some cool names. So far i done only weapons. Each weapon was taken into consideration to at least match the weapon type or the main skill it provides or the color of the skill or effect or etc..
Please look at docs - http://mxl.vn.cz/doc/ for items>runewords and check the names there for more info.

Here we go (Original name first - my suggestion (explanation in the brackets)):

Dumpweed – Wrath of Olympus (crucify efect..) or Styx (ancient river where souls 'cross' to hell)
Hells Bells – Boreus (god of north wind)
Brianstorm – Anger of Zeus (thunder and lightning)
Critical Acclaim – Deimos and Phobos (gods of fear and terror)
Mother Russia – Midas touch (turns all into shiny gold)
Kashmir – Artemis (god of forest and hunting)
Wake Up Dead – Cult of Hera (Hera’s symbol is cow)
Ruby – Cold steel Kopis (Kopis – ancient weapon, dagger type)
Nothing Else Matters – Angry Arachne (god of spiders)
Moby Dick – Flight of Hermes (Hermes – fast messenger of gods)
Jailbreak – Omophagia (ancient greece act – eating raw flesh)
Afterlife – Strike of Apollo
Thriller – Dance of Aellopus (one of the harpy who tortures people, was called whirlwind-footed)
Dead Star – Falling Scorpius (Scorpius – star system in the sky similar to Sagittarius and so on)
Sudden Death – Aetos Dios (Eagle of Zeus)
Sunburn – Iokheira (showered by arrows – epitet describint Artemis)
Slaughtered – Khryselakatos (golden shaft of Artemis)
Becoming – Strike of Apollo
Hell March – Claw of Archimedes or Iron Hand (both synonyms for same thing)
Lithium – Hellenic Cult (association with pagan rites)
Angry Again – Hephaistus (god of smithing in greece, smashing iron with hammer)
Unintended – Bolt thrower (association to Zeus)
Bat Country – Aristophanes comedy (which was named The frogs)
Goddamn Electric – Caduceus (mythological stave carried by some gods)
Mastermind –Kronus sicle (the instrument he used to castrate and depose Uranus)
Thunderstruck – Cretan knife (special dagger from island Crete)
Even Flow –Remedy of Gods (healing with sulfur, which is brimstone; Asclepius – healing god)
Frantic – Asclepius Rod
Uprising – Katapeltikon (mechanical arrow firing catapult)
Watercolour – Anger of Ares (god of war, ofter pictured with a spear)

I would suggest not using names from real-world mythology if possible. Zeus isn't worshipped in Sanctuary; Rathma, Akarat, the Prime Evils, the High Council etc. are.

If you look at Laz' names they're either references to Diablo 2 lore or generic phrases that have a reference to something irl but could also work in Diablo 2. Like 'Satanic Mantra' is both a reference to a metal song and works as something a Diablo-worshipping cult would use.

So yeah, that pretty much rules out all of your names.

Not Necessarily, I'm gonna back you up guy! Some of these names are pure epicness. Despite they all may not fit in, but some of the Great/Elemental Runes would be awesome. Like for example ( I randomly looked at fire rune for scythe ) "Rain/Blood of Hades" or "Seeping Hell"
