Orc's Best Friend

First up: Woot! Reliquary of Souls was nice last Wednesday night, and dropped me a shiny new mace. I probably won't be rid of this thing 'til Kil'jaeden or WotLK - got it 'goosed and ready to go for Sunday's raid. Fun fun fun.

Next - totally unrelated to WoW, but a few weeks back I went to a Third Eye Blind concert at Nokia Theater in NYC. Very nice venue, great concert. 3EB played all their hits, some new stuff from their upcoming album, and generally put on a great show. What really impressed me was the opening band, though. 3EB is currently touring with a Chicago-based band with pretty good sound, Absentstar. After the concert, my brother bought their album and I've had one of their songs, "Give In to Me," stuck in my head for 3 days now.

My Orc Hunter will hit level 10 very soon, so he'll get himself a pet. Something I didn't anticipate - what do I name the pet? I usually have a hard time naming my characters names that I like, and if I don't like the name, I won't play the character - conversely if I like the name, I have a hard time not playing that character and end up fixating on 'im. That reminds me, I'll have to write up the origin of my character and his name at some point. It's long and involved, and he wasn't always named as he is.

Anyway, he'll get a trusty boar sidekick. What's a good name for a boar? Only thing I can think of is "Babe" after the movie about that pig, but I don't like that at all. It's gotta have an Orcish ring to it and make you think "fierce" and "boar" at once. This is a toughie, especially because I don't speak Orcish. Maybe I could just name 'im "Zug," that sounds Orcish... not especially fierce though...
