    Default What would a Dwarven Demigod call himself?

    Alright, I have an ex-PC who was a Dwarven Cleric of Moradin. The short(ish) version is that he was given the gift of immortality, and a bit of divine power so he could power his own spells (instead of having them be grated by Moradin). He took over a demiplane of earth and started his own clan of dwarves (from another plane)... his own power grew until he could grant spells to his own followers, and in effect he became a demigod.

    But, as part of the deal, he has to protect an artifact (that the party's after), and take a new name... the idea being that nobody can figure out who he was and therefore won't know he's defending this artifact.

    But, what should he call himself? His mortal name was Davin Deepmug.

    the awareness of all that he did not know, of all that he had not read;
    and the serenity for which he labored was shattered as he realized the
    little time he had in life to read so much, to learn what he had to know.”

    I assume you're wanting serious names, right?

    I'd go with "Paragon Rook", using Paragon as a general name for servants of Moradin.

    I like this one. More of a title than a name. And to be honest, the other two ex-PCs that the party has to track down are also going by titles more than names (one is known as the "Mountain Spirit" and the other is the "Dragonlord"). This one's the only one who became a diety, mostly due to his background as a cleric (the other two were a monk and a fighter).

    Thanks for the help. I'll be posting his base stats in a bit and asking for equipment advice.

    If he protects something, I'd include that in the name. Therefore, for last names:

    Shieldbearer
    Hearthkeeper
    Holdfast
    Everguard

    Après le monde - le gris; après le gris - le monde de nouveau.

    The joke Dwarf name that my gaming group usually references is Bendbar Liftgates, not this Beardfist fellow. Otherwise, I like some of the other title-type names already given.
