I'm thinking you should go back and look at the author of FR9.

There's a place west of Filur called "Pick'N'Axe".
There's a place northeast of Filur called "Outentown".
I'm also wondering how many parties went up to "Hoarbridge" before they realized the spelling was wrong.

None of those names come from Ed. They are either the creation of the TSR staff, R A Salvatore, or both.

No worse than 'Hammer and Anvil', or the 'Halfway Inn'.

I don't mind funny names for places - I can see proprietors and locals wanting that just to make their places memorable. But silly names for characters in annoying, IMO. Who names their kid 'Pickle'?

Wish I had a copy of that map - might be some goodies on there I haven't seen before (ya never know).

True... and that does seem very Salvatore'esque. So many of his names just make me shake my head.

Oddly enough, in real life, I know a guy who goes by the name "Pickle". It started out apparently when his boy scout leader told him he was about as "useful as a Picklescoop". He embraced the name fully, to the point that he has a website that he blogs on called www.picklescoop.com ... and if you ever just feel like a silly pick me up, go there. I even went to a comic-con in New Orleans a few years ago, and in comes walking my friend dressed as "Picklescoop" the superhero (I will note that the distinctive curve of a pickle makes for a very ... um... let's call it "manly" image).

Anyway, not really realms related... so.... ummmm, who has heard of the spell "storm of pickles".

Alavairthae, may your skill prevail

I had a math teacher in 9th grade (I think I spooked him a little) who said I was always in 'the Twilight Zone' (I constantly just stared out the window, ignoring everything in class, but if called upon I always knew the answer... I think I spooked everybody LOL). Anyhow, the kids in my math class started calling me 'Twilight', and then everyone else did (including a couple of teachers), and for the next four year i was 'Twilight'.

I guess that was somewhat better than junior high, where everyone called me 'sleepy' because I fell asleep in class once.
