Hero: John

Army: Golden Army

Castle: Hyrule Castle

The names aren't that original, but when i pick something that might sound cool a the time i usually end up hating the name by the end of the game. On my second playthrough i may switch it up a bit.

LoL! I had almost forgotten our conversation about the name Yuki, Dzerassa.

Name: Okita (I used to use Jubei as a generic name for most of my RPGs, but I decided to start going with something a little more obscure)

Castle: Arshtat Castle (I have a tendency to name the castle in Suikoden after someone who dies earlier in the game)

Army: First playthrough - Vindicare (it's something like "vengeance" in Latin or something), second playthrough - Dawn Coalition.

Not gonna win any points for creativity, but ah well.

I dunno why, but that looks like the name of an evil health insurance company, or a nursing home for retired villains XD (if you pronounce it like Vindi-Care)

LoL! Well, I think it's pronounced win-di-kahre or something. I'd have to ask my friend who knows latin.

Yup, that's the right classic pronounciation(win-di-kah-ray) and the right meaning, or the gist of it. We get words like vindictive and vindicated from it.

Now before I post, and possibly upset anyone, let me post a little informative information that you might need to know before flaming and hating me.

Now a lot of people know who "Ultimate Warrior" was, but some might not. He is a retired WWE wrestler who was born "James Brian Hellwig", and changed his name to "Warrior" in 1993 (I thought it was Warrior Warrior...). He eventually "found a new career as a conservative speaker and commentator" and this led to much controversy, or hilarity, depending on who you are. He is quoted as saying:

Quote:
"Look, queering doesn't make the world work."


and

Quote:
"We live in a society where the bum is as legitimate as the business man, where homosexuals are the same as good straight people, where Kwanza is the same as Christmas."


I found this hilarious, as some burned out, senile wrestler giving speeches is hilarious in the first place, never mind the nonsense he is clearly spouting.

Now back to Suikoden The androgynous Tenkai from SV annoyed me. Seemingly with each new installment we need another more feminine tenkai, who sometimes wears women's clothing, and I'm just tiring of it now as I thought asking for a warrior who looked the part wasn't much to ask. Clearly I'm wrong.

Now this is where this all this rambling concludes. I thought it a humourous idea to make the tenkai "more manly and wimmin' loving" (all in jest, remember the androgynous thing annoying me and Warrior being a living joke) so who better a role model in heterosexuality and manliness? Warrior! So I named these two as appropriate:

Hero: Warrior Warrior
Army: Queer Bashers

This provided me with hilarity the whole way through and all I could hear was the Ultimate Warrior's theme tune when they mentioned either of them. This may seem a tad strange to a lot of you, but maybe my sense of humour is too. I named the castle:

Castle: Blue Dragon

I really liked the castle in this game so I named it after Guan Yu's weapon from Romance of the Three Kingdoms, Dynasty Warriors, etc. The name itself appealed to me and Guan Yu is one of my favourite characters from the games based in this period. That and the blue was a reference to the water surrounding the castle as well.

Anyway, I just wanted to make clear I'm not some raging homophobe, neo-nazi hater of all things of different sexual preferennce. I have friends here and in real life who are homosexual and bisexual. This was what I named things in this game though and I thought I'd be best explaining why before I was flamed to oblivion.

I had named the castle Ceras lake castle because Lyon was rather persistant in not letting me name it Sindar Castle which i thought of before Sialeeds screwed me over. Well she had her commupance. and for the army i went with the Feitas because i liked the name it also fit kinda of well for a ramshackle group of old war veterans and random passerbys

Just had to put my two cents in here!

Hero: Vasily

Army: Radiant Future Army

Castle: Borodingrad

Now, personally I just love the name 'Borodiingrad.' It rolls off my tongue quite nicely.

I named the castle by combining the names of the Hero's mother and father. I ended up with these names...

Castle Headquarters: Castle Arshtrid
Army: Forces of Dawn

I'm quite the uncreative fellow so I named the prince, the castle and the army according to what most consider as "canon".

Hero: Faroush

Army: Royalist

Castle: Ceras Lake

I name things the same thing in each game. I'm just a creature of habit, or I'm too lazy to think up different names, one or the other. Anyways, I name them:

Hero: Zack - I name the hero after myself because I like to be involved in the game. Hence why I wasn't as enthusiastic about S3 as some people were because I didn't like having to have the hero named Hugo. Yeah, you could have used Chris or Geddoe, but the game pretty much wants you to use Hugo as the Flame Champion.

Army: The Avenger Army - We're always trying to avenge something/someone, so why not go with it?

Castle: Sakura Castle - Yeah, so I name my castle after tree blossoms, or after a 12 year old magical girl, your pick. Sakura Castle still reigns supreme!

I say you picked the castle name after a 12 year-old magical girl!

You're most likely right. I think I was in the process of watching that show when I first played Suikoden 1, and as I said, it's just carried over through all of them:)

Hero: Faroush, because I always end up hating names I think up myself.
Army: Ra Malachim. Ra like the Egyptian sun god, and Malachim means angels.
Castle: Olympus Castle. I wanted it name it Apogee (when a heavenly body is its farthest from Earth), but my friend kept calling it Applebee's, so I changed my mind.
