In "Mongo", if you replace the first "o" with an "a" and the second with an "ă", you'd get a Romanian adjective describing someone who's very drunk.

Oh, how could we forget? The indescribable suspense... the sheer awe that overwhelms anyone... in the presence of... Mysterio the Magnificent! :|

Don't mock the fashion of wizards, for they are quick to change. Change you into a frog that is. :devious:

Funny, the same applies in German too!
So, i consider such an name generally unfitting.... "even" for a barbarian!

Never played the H4 expansions.... too overpriced for just a few neutral creatues and extra maps and therefore....

"Spazz Maticus???"!
Did this really happen to be a name for a Hero?
Was everything in those expansions on this...hm... level?
Weird!

Hmmm. I suppose they don't read much manga in Romania then. ;)

If you consider Mysterio the Magnificent, and of course Bohb the Archmage, then of course, everything was perfectly serious and normal. :proud:

Unfortunately yes,everything was on that level.Megadragon is just one of the examples.And the size of those expansions.Both could fit on one normal CD.Twice!!And the campaigns were awful,to say the least.There were just two good things,in my oppinion:artifact groups and the last campaign of WoW,since you were able to choose the race youll lead.

The campaigns were largely made by fans, I have read. It seems 3DO didn't even have the resources to construct its own campaigns at that point. A pittie. :(

The "megadragon" is in fact a drake, dragons have wings, we really should be able to rename the names to our our liking :rolleyes:

I would call it firedrake which suits it perfectly ;)

Note that the second "a" has a sign on top of it: "ă"

Nah, we must keep with the superduper name theme...Uberdrake. Except I always thought drakes were two-winged small dragons, but that's beside the point. How 'bout Supersized Fire-breathing Lizard of Doom?

Drake is just another name for a dragon. The whole with/without wings thing was invented for D&D or something. And i belive Wyrm was the non-flying one anyway.

No that was my own theory, the thing with or without wings and limbs, I didnt even know D&D used those descriptions.

I'm not sure if D&D does use them, but i recall seeing something like that somewhere.

This is what Tolkien used:
* Dragons (Worms)
o Cold-drakes - those who could not breathe fire
o Fire-drakes (Urulóki) - those who breathed fire. Both included:
+ Long-worms - legless dragons
+ Legged, non-flying dragons
+ Winged dragons

And I checked and it's not from D&D: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dragon_%28 ... Dragons%29

How about giant, mutated drake?

Ah! Good one lordskeleton. I think we just need to make it a bit mutated-er now, how about it has one wing? 'Cause we're not entirely sure whether drakes have wings or not, so that'd be a compromise. ;)
