Famous Old Characters
« Topic Start: October 17, 2015, 07:37:26 PM »
So we've recently decided to incorporate the famous characters of yore into a game feature. To that end, I would like to begin the collection of the legendary characters that have shaped a continent. The older, the better, my list barely starts to mention all that I know are out there. The emphasis is primarily on the characters that are no longer with us, especially of the players that are no longer with us. In this way, when the names are seen in-game they can spark discussion on the legends of old.

Mathurin, Delvin, Doc, Handow, Sangue, Aldarion, Jenred, Yarah, Gregor, Tsu, Aldo, Alanna, Allison, Handkor, Louis-Joseph is a start. I know there's been a couple old threads on nostalgia of old characters, so if anyone bothered to find them and link them from here, that'd be appreciated as well.

Happy to answer any questions on any of the names I listed btw, just not really the purpose of this post.

Atamara:

Andrew McKay, King of Eston
Gauihu, Mad King of Abington
Krypton the Bold, Prime Minister of Norland
Sordnaz, Dictator For Life of Barony of Makar
Various Dead_Angels

South-East Island:

Boswick, Ruler of Sandalak and founder of the Brute Squad
Castamir, Who Destroyed Two Nations, Both His Own
Little Ogre, Little Ogre

Is Dwilight old enough to be counted as 'yore'? :P

By all means, don't hesitate to name the recently influential. Gregor is still alive, after all. And I named names from Dwilight in my list, as well. I just wanted to stress taking the time to remember the oldies. But since the recent is more fresh in memory, try to stick to only the fewest uppermost names that of fame, infamy, legend, influence etc. upon a continent.

While it is a bit self serving I do think two of my old former characters had quite a measure of infamy on their continents.

Merlin Silverfire on Atamara
Brom Silverfire on Dwilight (more regional in Luria, though did marry and then had a falling out with Allison)

What was the name of the last ruler of Lasanar who left to let it all collaps? That was quite a big thing on FEI.

You could potentially put Ascanius on also, mad Pontifex of Sartania who ultimately destroyed it in an attempt to slaughter Arcaea (was very close), but not sure if there aren't better names of even older days to add there.

The old King of Darka. He was certainly an eccentric fellow. :3

Kostaka Kosunen of Darka, yeah, he was influential on AT, to say the least.

Atamara:
DrSeptre (Norland? Makar?) of perpetual jousting victory
Moses of the ASI power duo with Doc's Revenge
Gabriel of Abington-will-not-be-leaving-your-islands-alone-ever

BT:
Anomalous? or Annomylous...founded KoA

I remember a Valentine from somewhere in a way that makes me want to hit something but I can't remember exactly why? That name though...

DrSeptre was Makar. Loved playing with that guy, even though he was sometimes quiet. Always won the tournies and was a gift on the battlefield, too.

I'd throw Fingolfin into the mix, as someone mentioned in the linked thread. And who was the PM from CE during the end of the big Atamaran war? Jason? I remember diplomacy against him was like playing chess with missing pieces.
