Even though I’m on vacation I thought I would post a blog this week, as the question is a fun one that won’t take up a whole lot of time:
Dear Dungeon Master,
What are some great Roller Derby names having to do with D&D?
Being that my wife plays Roller Derby for the Rocky Mountain Rollergirls (go RMRG!), Roller Derby names are something I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about. This was not always because I was trying to help anyone think of names, it’s just a weird side effect of being involved in the Roller Derby community – you can’t seem to stop trying to come up with clever names. Or maybe that’s just me.
Unfortunately, D&D names aren’t something most Derby girls would give a crap about, so this will be new territory for me, but territory I’m all too happy to explore. Anyone who isn’t familiar with Derby, names are often plays on words, phrases and people, usually with a violent or sexy twist, or a double meaning. Some examples are:
Vulva Display of Power
So, with that in mind, here’s what I came up with for D&D inspired Derby names:
Brooke of Vile Darkness
Psychosahedron (An Icosahedron is a 20-sided die for anyone that’s not as big of a nerd as me. I think this one is my favorite. Number: 1d20)
Random Encounter (This one I thought was great without changing it any)
Fingerbang of Death
Murderer of the Planes
Scary Gygax (Number: 1974)
Clit Fiend (Number: 669)
Eye of the Beholder
Bludgeon Your Dragon
Maggie Missile (Number: 1d4+1)
And that’s what I got for you. If any hardcore D&D Derby girls want to actually use one of these names, that would be awesome.
Anyone have some other names to add to this list?
