As you may or may not know, collective nouns are nouns that refer to a group of similar entities. A bench of aldermen, a congregation of alligators, a bloat of hippopotamuses, a lechery of priests, a flourish of strumpets, etc.

Now, do the various character classes have collective nouns? If not, does anyone have any ideas? I have a few.


A library of Wizards.
A chord of Bards.
A gymnasium of Fighters.
A talent of Sorcerers.


If there's some that already exist, or if you have any, leave 'em around. Or don't.

I was going to suggest a looting of adventurers, but that works too.

There actually is one for wizards already: an argument.

Similarly, unicorns are a blessing and dragons are a flight, unless you're on Pern, where they're a weyr.

A chain of binders.
A *******1 of truenamers

1 Requires a DC 50 Truespeak check to say, and any truenamer may instantly teleport to the speaker's location regardless of local conditions.

A (self-)righteousness of paladins



A Nuisance of Paladins (sorry, they mean well)

It's beginning to become depressing how often the opinion on
paladins is brought so low by the zeitgeist of the world.

Not to mention the fact there there are "paladins"
who enjoy and spread the imbecilic playstyle that caused this opinion.
I don't want to be above or below anyone.

And now back to our scheduled thread-relevant content!
A Brutality of barbarians.
A Murder of assassins.
And lastly,
A Diversity of multi-classers.

Sadly so. Paladins are the most well intended of classes. but players are bad idea factories. and the most dangerous thing in the world is a man with good intentions and a bad Idea. This is why paladins take so much flack. too many paladins become Miko, not enough act like Ochul.

Thus the brackets in my groupname idea- a righteousness of paladins works for the O-Chul types, and a self-righteousness of paladins works for the "paladins".

Although I feel compelled to point out that the blame for the paladumbs doesn't fall entirely on the players (although a good share of it certainly does)- the way RAW comes out, many a DM has had a PC paladin fall for too much good, not enough lawful, or even the ever-wonderful 'results matter more than intentions, and these factors you had no actual way of knowing about make your results bad. Have fun being a fighter with no feats!' (no, thankfully not personal experience talking :smalltongue:)

And a Murder of Assassins would be wonderful if they were all Kenku :smallamused:

And, in yet another attempt to get back on topic...

A Smite of Avengers
A Foot of Monks
A Headache of Psions
A Scribble of Runepriests
A Censer of Invokers
A Mischance of Sorcerors

Well. Since you've mentioned this,
I now consider myself very lucky to have had a DM that, I kid you not, said
"I respect you're attempt to be the good guy." Didn't bring up any of those reasons, thankfully.
If I may ask, is there a thread where I can post character-Player life stories?
(Or continue this conversation? I get the feeling that the moderators are annoyed.)

I feel like I need to say it somewhere, Especially now,
Since the other D.M. was a creep that tried much, Much worse.

Wow, I attracted the attention of the Mighty Goto, Comrade of the famous Digo.
I didn't fall, Thankfully,
And it's nice to Sort-of meet you, Goto.

And now, Back to our regularly scheduled thread-related content:
A Monastery of monks,
A Shadow of ninjas,
A Forest of druids.
And lastly,
A WELP of Tarrasques.

Thank you for reading this!
I hope that you have a nice day today,
And that if it isn't, You make it one. Apply headlocks as necessary.
