This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

Need a Name for an annoying NPC, maybe...GURPS Star Trek
« on: September 22, 2022, 03:46:14 PM »
Greetings,

I 'know' what situation I am running for tomorrow's game session - I'm just stuck on a name for an annoying NPC.

The players are officers on a Starfleet ship that are sent to investigate lost cmmunications with him or rescue him and his family.

 At some point in the advenmture I know this NPC might lose it and go a little 'crazy.

He sees the native intelligent life forms on the planet as 'Demons in the Sand'.....stuff like that.
He thought they were all dead centuries ago.
The NPC is an Archeologist with some knowledge of anthropology as well as desert survival.

Any suggestions on a Name for him?

Dr. Adrian Tallis.
Dr. Theodore Kane.
Professor Maximilian Argo.
Dr. Harlan Ukwembe.
Dr. Noriko Kumitori (just to change it up for a female name).

Dr. Jaziel "Zeke" Dildollix.

No, NOPE, never...not going to happen. Did not happen.
Was looking for real sounding names, not stupid jokes.

Of Course not.

 My youngest player in that group is 13, my oldest player in that group is in her 60s I don't 'joke' names for NPCs. However that being certain names have connotations subliminal or not. Naming a character 'Wilbur' instead of "Bill"/William for example. One sounds weak amd comical, the other might not.

I think it's quaint you bring your grandma and niece/nephew together for family game night. Do you play in your mom's basement?

Go FUCK yourself Effete!!

The older woman is a military veteran and my friend who has cancer - the rrason I started the campaign.

Effete, you are a piece of shit as a Human Being.

There is a married couple playing in my group, the 13 year old is their son.

For someone with no sense of humor, I think it's funny how you try to blame me for being insensitive about things I had absolutely no knowledge of. Your overreaction was amusingly absurd.
