    Default Brainstorming a name for a Mexican Kobold Gunslinger

    Just like the title says. With the Ultimate Combat Playtests, I've fallen in love with the Gunslinger. Even though we're playing Curse of the Crimson Throne, my DM decided to be nice and allow me to play a Kobold (despite it not fitting in with the world that well) on the condition that I give him a big floppy sombrero and a mustache.

    However, I'm finding myself stuck on a name. El Muchacho has a nice ring to it, but I'm also trying to brainstorm any alternates and I'm frankly coming up blank.

    There's a gazillion American gunslinger names out there, from Wild Bill to John Dillinger to Billy the Kidd, but precious little in the way of famous Mexican/Spanish gunslingers (though I guess they would be called banditos).

    Any thoughts?

    Señor Esteban Rodriguez Hernando III.

    Or any other rather long and excessive name.

    Frito. Then he can be The Frito Bandito.

    Gordito. If anyone asks, have him hit himself and say it's because he's a little piggy.

    Perro Sarnoso Gruñón

    (Mangy Grumpy Dog)

    Perro (dog) sounds almost like Pedro ( spanish for Peter ). Sarnoso is a pun with Cardoso, a common surname. Gruñón is just a way to add a strong sounding surname.

    I'm not sure I get the little piggy, but Gordito is absolutely perfect. I kept trying to think of where I kept getting my mental image of this character from, and I realized it was Gordito from Dr. McNinja. Little Kobold Gordito is WAY too awesome of a concept.

    Now I wonder if I can persuade my DM to let me ride a raptor...

    Simply Pepe would do fine for a Kobold I believe, has that comical touch to it that I think you are after.
    I'm craving a Film Noir-ish detective story with Chtulhu elements in personal horror-style. Gaming system irrelevant. Willing to co-dm / main-dm something but I prefer to play. PM me if you're interested or have any good ideas to base a story on.

    Oh, so, so fitting for a beautiful Kobold.
    I just want someone to hold me and tell me they love me. Especially when I am sad.

    What system are you using? If 3.5, the DMG has a pretty standard system on buying a tame mount based on either CR or hit dice. And of course, warbeast template has rules about it.
