I´ve read those series with Angelique. If I am not wrong, there was an old movie based in those series. Brilliant! I like this name. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wave.gif" alt="" />


Thanks <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wave.gif" alt="" />

That's correct. The name is the french form for 'Angela' or 'Angelica'. I'm not sure, but I think the action in the books took place around the french revolution.
I made a mage with that name, but stopped playing that character after she had come far to early to the waste lands (no way back, you know <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cry.gif" alt="" />) She was definately not ready for 'Angelique and The Lord of Lies' <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/suspicion.gif" alt="" />

Glad we like the same books. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/winkwink.gif" alt="" />

One question : your Angelique in <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/div.gif" alt="" /> is a warrior, mage, or thief?

In Diablo 2 I have an assassin named Crazzy B*tch.

P.S. alright, it's not actually 'my' assassin, it's a freind's... <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shame.gif" alt="" />

Actually I would classify avatar names into three classes.
The first is concerning avatars with invincible qualities and super stats.
Here names of Ancient GODS would be the best, also diabolic names should work too.
Raa, Horus, Seth, Isis, Neu, Zeus, Elite, Veronica, Venus, ..., etc.

The second class is that of demigods, heroes and champions where the race is critical.
Human = Hercules, Spartacus, Samson, Delilah, Cleopatra, Het-chep-sute, Joan, Antara, Holako (Jenkis Khan),

For Orcs, names made of combinations of weapons and gore works best or names ending with “ak”.
Orcs = Bloodhammer, Swardsblood, Clanbanned, Deathknife, Maceblow, Bloodclub, Bloodyarrow, Blackspeare, and Shakespeare. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/biggrin.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/biggrin.gif" alt="" />
Also, Jurak, Makmak, Domak, Ranak, Gorak, etc.

For Elves, any name ending with aris for males and ca/ na for females should do, preferably augmented with forest objects.

I like Eldaris, Elona, Elvana, Elvanis, Silvana, Silvaris, Goldana, Goldaris, Miroca, Thornar, Oakana, Oakalus, Nightbreeze, Windchill, Greenleaf, Winterbolts, etc.

For Dwarfs, Stoneaxe, Stonehammer, Stony, Darktunnle, Minemaster, Mineoronbesns. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" /> etc.

The last and lowest rank is very limited and it has only one name:
DAD. (drink and die.)

She is a mage, but could have been anything. In Diablo 2, she was an assassin.

Well I think that if she is a mage the name fits perfect.

My char is a warrior and the blonde hair stuck in my stomach.... I would prefer to have a red hair like me. The name Lucretia goes wasted in that blonde warrior. It is the only thing I do not like in the game. Hope in DD 2 there would be more char <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" /> to choose.

I got an mage called "Ithrin" and a fighter called "Dorian"... In other games i got an orc name "Borghun(- ironaxe, if you want...)"... Actually i mean that you should find up your own personal name you could use in most fantasy games..

Macbeth of course! A fierce Warrior! A fragment from the play by Shakespeare:

For brave Macbeth,—well he deserves that
name,—
Disdaining fortune, with his brandish'd steel,
Which smok'd with bloody execution,
Like valour's minion carv'd out his passage
Till he fac'd the slave;
Which ne'er shook hands, nor bade farewell to
him,
Till he unseam'd him from the nave to the chaps,
And fix'd his head upon our battlements.

Evil at its best!


I am in blood
Stepp'd in so far, that, should I wade no more,

Hi LUCRETIA

Nice to see you again.
About Angélique : the books have been writen by a couple of french people :
Anne and Serge Golon, i think they were married.
It was during the early sixties.
The books were very successful and there were 5 movies about the adventures of Angélique,
with a very beautiful women with red hair, Michèle Mercier.
The story did not take place during the french revolution but about 200 years before.
It was during the reign of Louis XIV (le roi soleil), about 1660-1680.
You are right, Angélique joined a thieves guild during some times.

In Paris, i live in the place were most of the thieves guild took place during this period.
These places were called "Cour des miracles".

In his novel "Notre Dame de Paris", the writer Victor Hugo talked of the thieves guilds in Paris.

thnx for the info Barta. It was really interesting. Unfortunatelly I have not found yet a good translated publication of the books. The Greek publications of those series were really poor. I liked it, even though the translation was very bad. Hope that it will published again sometime and be better. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wave.gif" alt="" />
