We've gotten an update on our rapidly approaching expansion to Byalan dungon, in the form of some new monsters! Though they do come with names, the names aren't exactly all that descriptive of what monster you're going to be facing.

I mean, look at monsters we've already got in the game like Magnolia, who would have known it would be a vengeful egg monster when you heard it's name?

So! We're going to do a weeklong contest for the community to submit names that they think will be a good fit for these monsters. Submit a name for one, some, or all of the monsters. If choosen it'll be your name on the monster FOR ALL ETERNITY. That being said, they should be appropriate and avoid the obvious lewd and/or copyright protected names. The best names we receive by say 12 noon PST on next Friday will be sorted through to find the best name for these critters.

Here are the monsters and their current names


SROPHO Posted Image WINNING NAME: Lamp Ray
SEDORA Posted ImageWINNING NAME: Squidgitte
KING DRAMOH Posted Image WINNING NAME:King Kray
POT DOFLE Posted Image WINNING NAME: Octopot

I look forward to see what you guys come up with!

...why can't we keep the original names? ._.
I don't see anything wrong with them. Especially Sedora has just a lovely name.
I could understand to see the Swordfish-riding Wildrose here, since his name is kinda meh (Wild Rider) and I do understand Pot Dofle, but Sedora, Sropho and King Dramoh? They're nice as they are ._.

1. - (SROPHO) flashing sea serpent (the reason why at the bottom of the sea is dark and ... XD and applying it, this monster produces its own light)
2. - (Sedora) Queen of the deep sea ... (according to me, has a kind of dress, and what's in your head I see them as jewelry)
3. - (King Dramoh) King Crab .... (has a crown and is crab ..... XD)
4. - (Pot Dofle) Servant of the sea .... (All King and Queen needs a servant xD)
Sorry if it is all well written .... use a translator xD

I agree. If the same names are used amongst all the other RO versions, I don't see why we should change them just for iRO. It's really confusing to have players from other ROs come here and looking for certain skills, items, and monsters only to not find them because they're named differently.

I would have suggested Cray Aiken, but it's a king, not a queen.

+1, they are good as they are. There are so many other things to change, fix broken dialogs for example. If it ain't broken, don't mess with it.

The names are fine as they are... Trying for relevant names now is a bit too late in the game, don't you think?

I disagree. I think they need to implement a sand-dollar monster so we can name it Heimdollar.
