Congratulations ladsPlease keep going
>>52057374>>52057411The archived thread is still up>>51943786
If you make your name an anagram nobody can stop you from doing anything you want.I am playing a half-orc barbarian gourmand butler who protects the kittenfolk family that raised him after finding him in the wild. His name is an anagram for Geoffrey Butler from The Fresh Prince but nobody has caught on yet.
>build a sub optimal at best alchemist/druid>have to jump through hoops and loops to be allowed to name him Keda Ficks
>>52066435anagrams are baby-mode. You want a name that, when spoken, sounds exactly like what your character is.
>>52066764Jokes on you, I did both. Robert (that's Ro-bear) Feyfulge, the perfect name for a fiercely loyal gentleman butler with feral eyes.
