Odin's tomes naming suggestions!

Recommended Posts

Odin, the not!Owain Dark Mage gets +10 crit from his inherent skill when wielding a weapon that has 8 kanji for its name. While we could just be scrubs and randomly pick 8 kanji to get the buff, my seething blood moves me to make it cool instead.

...Except I can't really think of any good ones at the moment. Any ideas?

Well, I'll just through out names and see what sticks:

"Dark Spiral of Eternal Despair"

"Black Destiny the Speller of Doom"

"Shadow Dragons Awakening to the Radiant Dawn"

"Stupid Bad Guys Should Just Die!!"

"I've Finally Made A Critical Hit!!"

"Special Move: Blazing Sword of the Mage"

"Odin's Beard"

"The Poet Without Words"

"Blood Boiling of Lost Control!"

"The Beast That Make the Hand Hunger"

"Lancelot Dances a Lot"

"Grima's Dastardly Fist"

"Insert Cool Name Here"

Do any of these work? I don't understand Kanji or Japanese in general.

When FE14 gets localized, I'll rename his tomes after Greek and/or Roman gods. This will go with the whole Western theme of Nohr.

Just by looking at them they wont' likely guarantee 8 characters in kanji, and while Japanese isn't my language I guarantee you Chinese is a very concise language and saying shit like "fucking your eighteenth generation ancestors" only accounts for 7 characters

In fact I am having trouble thinking of phrases that are 8 characters because all the Chinese poetry I know are either 5 or 7 and I myself am incredibly unpoetic so I'll have to do some research and I'm not sure if all of the shit I know in Chinese can even apply to Japanese since Kanji and Chinese have a significant intersection but Kanji only contains a portion of Chinese while having a bit of their own thing going on

I see, I just wanted to help. However I'm determined, I'll find something that can hit 8 characters no matter how many names I have to through out.

Just make your phrases longer and you might hit something that translate to 8 characters.

Uh, eight words right ? Well, Super Super Super Super Super Super Great Sword. It must be possible to do something like that, in the japanese version obviously.

Yes, yes it's lame, so what ? It's simple. :p

I'm no expert on Kanji or whatever, but wouldn't just plugging in 8 random Kanji work?

Yes, but the OP did address that and wanted something cooler, so

Where's the fun in that? Is your blood not boiling? Hungering for special attacks?

if you know enough Chinese you can look through some 四言诗 for inspiration, since the lines are always in chunks of 2 4-character sections

But I don't even feel my own Chinese skills good enough to translate some of those; I mean I'm good but this is super archaic AND poetry

http://puu.sh/imSqt/78dc4a6c40.png but just for reference putting that through google translate in Japanese instead of Chinese gives you the Japanese Romaji necessary to input them; Not all lines will work like that, but that one did.

The Velvet Kiss of Death that Metes out Justice without Discrimination or Ephemeral Emotion.

Though I have no idea if that would even sound cool written in Kanji, let alone be 8 characters.

You have made my night. These names made me smile. Got more? XD

Man... Western names just are not gonna compare to these names here. Really makes you wonder how the skill will function localized... It would be great if we could somehow get more than the typical character limit for Odin's tomes specifically. :p

"Dear Odin, you need to read more books so I made you this one. Love, Mum"

and

"Odin's tome of potential names to unleash the blood-boiling power within."

A longer character limit would be amazing haha, but I imagine they'll change it to names with all caps or something similar.

If the limit is 8 characters like in Awakening that means there's no room for any kana, and in turn basically no room for actual grammar. If that's the case I'm probably just going to string 4 words together that seem to fit thematically and call it a day. For example "古来魔族禁断暗闇" ("ancient demon forbidden darkness").
