i was just wondering, almost every player on this forum has at least ONE skaven alias or character, and i was thinking perhaps we all get insprired by the same things, or perhaps, our names reflect our individual states of mind or experiences.

im not sure where warlord stinkhair originated from, but that means i probably stole it from somewhere/someone, without being spotted.

my cheiftain, cheiftain whisskrot was thought up as along the lines of whisker-rot, but then they merged to become whisskrot. this then created a -skrot suffix for most of the rest of my charactes (being a 15 yr old in england, skrot seems to be an 'entertaining' word..)

my Grey Seer Skitterskrot was inspired by *obviously* skitterleap and the -skrot theme

Engineer potskrot was inspided by a mix of potshot and good ol' -skrot

assassin disqueek deathblade was a creation of discreet crossbred with squeak, deathblade is an obvious choice for an assassin

the main syllables/sounds included in skaven names seem to be:
Squeak *or a variation on squeak*
Sk
Skitter- *or -skit-*
queek
venom/poison
-snik- *or sknik*

feel free to add to this list...

just a thing that's been bugging me...

theres also a lot of "it"s or "itt"s (skritt, schnikkit).
as well, theres several rodent-related things
vermin
claw
fang
the five letters most commonly used by skaven would have to be
I, R, S, T, K

Verminous Fang was actually inspired by Monty Python. In the Spanish Inquisition, the main Inquisitor calls on of the other ones "Cardinal Fang" (the line is "Cardinal Fang, read the charges," after which Cardinal Fang lists the prices for a sketch - laughing at even the memory :lol: ).

The Verminous part, well two things. First, it's very rodent like and vermin infested. Second, it really is fun to say. :D

The other names I have, Thrish't, Krikit, etc., all just sound like Skaven would make the names.
Go forth my brethren, that we shall nibble at the roots of the old world!

We are the rats in the shadows. We hold the blades of corruption, aimed at the very heart of the Old World. We are The Council of Thirteen.

Nilax is my my way of combining "Nihilism" and "anthrax" by the way ;) I also thought it correlated well with "Dr. Thrax", the master of toxins in the PC game "C&C Generals". It sounded sufficiently skaveny (in particular, Pestilens), although you won't generate it with any skaven RNGs. (like the one in the Book of the Rat)

Is writing Dragon Age fanfiction

Well...

Rattsu the Black sort of named himself. Once I was done converting the model (black fur, one eye, mechanical arm, HUGE sword) it was so obvious that he was far too much like Gattsu of the comic 'Berserk' (translated to 'Guts' if you read the american version). So Gattsu the Black Swordsman becane Rattsu the Black... because swordsrat just doesn't have the same ring to it..

Skwee (as is Clan Hisvin)is a theft from Fritz Leiber, who created the idea of skaven, their underempire and the council before GW stole it *grins* Figured he needed some credit *smirks*

Ittchi, my assassin is a rattified version of 'Itchi the killer'. Wonderful Miike movie. Itchi means one in japanese.

Molltov is my engineer with death globes (Molotov-coctails...)

Tessla is my engineer with storm demon (Tesla, a big man when it came to electricity back in the days)

Kwikk is a bastardisation of Quick, Kvick in swedish.

Then I have the obvious ones...

One-Eye because of the well... one eye *grins*

White-Rat, because of his pet white rat.

Book-Rat (Bokråttan in swedish, so much cooler name there) because of his book.




I am currently writing an epic Dragon Age 2 adventure that can be found HERE!! or on my deviantart.

Grey Seer Liquil
Seer of Clan Virilus
Some of my Skaven names just sound right like Liquil (my grey seer, obviously) and Kr'skript (the dead warlock engineer from my fiction, see here. Anyway, my other characters are less original, Plague Priest Filthfang (like fangs, and hes Pestilens...), Assassin Quickslit (cuz hes all fast and stuff) and Warlock Engineer Madrat (well all that warpstones gotta go to ur head sometime)

my grey seer is named skeezix cheezewiz [the nasty pseudo-cheese in a can]
master assassin sneeky-ashi is the only other named guy in my skaven.
