No chance, Baka - I' ll remember ... and I'll save the next avatar-connected riddle for you :P

Baka

It's not Yun, Embala (hardly recognised you without the sun & moon avatar and banner! :))

faeriegirl

Still don't know! *dammit*
it wouldnt happen to be Jethel, would it? I've seen him with a flute sometimes...

Embala

Chot? ... at least "noise" fits him ...

RedheadEmber

Vok?

Baka

Nice going, Redhead! It's your turn, Vok is the right answer.

RedheadEmber

Poor Walk-things-gone Highthing

Embala

Ekuar :roll:

RedheadEmber

No...

Embala

Plural! -> Mekda

RedheadEmber

Yup! Mekda! Your turn!

Embala

Almostgrowler brother highthing

faeriegirl

Kimo?
Timmorn?

Embala

Double NO - look at the free space !

faeriegirl

Graywolf? or greywolf? of however you spell that one :P

Embala

Near! Very near! - but NO

faeriegirl

Two-Spear?

Embala

A possible answer - but not my choice!

You have a correct start with Greywolf ...

faeriegirl

Surprised i just found out that Greywolf has a twin brother??
well, that twin then (havent found his name yet)?
*edit* wikipedia isn't clear. Longbranch is 'Possible son of Owl, brother of Greywolf.' I'm guessing Owl is the brother...

so, is it Owl?
or, if I misread, is it Longbranch?

Embala

Owl is right Grin ... and I bet it's this guy in the middle ... http://www.elfquest.com/gallery/OnlineComics/TC/TC03/DisplayTC03.html?page=8

faeriegirl

yea, looks like the right guy to me too ;)

ok, here goes: Manynames Highthing
should be easy ;)

Embala

:? ... Who went by many names? ... Winnowill? ...

faeriegirl

this Highthing has been called 'Manynames Highthing' by a certain preserver, so it's not only my fault ;)

MichaelChandler

cutter. cutter has way too many names to friggin count. and didn't Petalwing call him that?

faeriegirl

Cutter certainly has many names, but he's not the one I'm talking about.
I checked the story, so I can prove that it's really been said :)
oh and discovered I made a [b:fa555b33cf]slight[/b:fa555b33cf] typo, it's:

Many-name Highthing.

have fun...

Embala

... now ... :? You definitely got me with this one ...

EDIT: Seem to remember - very slightly - that this coud refer to Cutter.

faeriegirl

hehe, as mentioned in my previous post, it's
[b:7a7477eba2]NOT CUTTER[/b:7a7477eba2]
that i'm talking about here.
Try someone else, who also has several names...
Granted, most of them were thought-up by the same preserver that said 'Many-name Highting' too.

faeriegirl

nobody? ah, come on!

Embala

D....! I posted a last guess right after your last answer ... tried to :?

Skywise?
If not I've to go om a quest[size=9:68eeaced57] ... or will cheat an look it up --- there are "preserver names" somewhere in the Gatherums ...[/size:68eeaced57]

faeriegirl

Not Skywise either.

And I don't have the Gatherum, so wouldn't know... till where does Gatherum cover?

Embala

Hmmm ... was this a hint? If it's supposed to be relative new - Sunstream?

faeriegirl

Not really a hint, mostly curious. But yes, if Gatherum only covers around the OQ, you won't find it...

and it's not Sunstream, either :)

so what does Gatherum cover?

Embala

You thought it would be easy ... means either I hadn't paid attention ... or it's too easy for me to consider.

Must ask: referring to a Wolfrider? ... Sunvillager? ... High One?

Gatherum 1 is from 1981
Gatherum 2 is from 1988
The Big Gatherung from 1994
and
The Wolfrider Guide comes 1999 - maybe the names were there? Wink

If you are still curious I'll look up the series for you ...

I thought it would be easy cuz I didn't think there were much elves that had several names ;)
I'd count this person under Sun Villager, though granted he/she hasn't been there all his/her life.

I'll give a hint: This person has 2 'main' names, the rest of the "many-names" has been made up by mostly the preserver.

Guessed something like this, but --- the only "Sunvillager" with two names I can imagine is Sunstream ... and you said already NO :?

male?

faeriegirl

male? YES

and poor you... Sunstream is a friend of Many-name Highthing though ;) :twisted:

Embala

Jethel? He's called Fire-Eye, too ... by the humans :roll:

faeriegirl

sure is! Hey, I never said that the other names were thought up by other elves... ;)
http://www.elfquest.com/gallery/OnlineComics/FE/DisplayFE.html?page=225 here's proof :P

Embala

No proof neccesary ... nice to see so (never read it til now ... no wonder Wink )

Ahmmm .... may I cancel my last answer? Now my poor me has to think about another name ... oh ... wait!

Furry-soft No-growler

faeriegirl

stubtail?

Embala

And your turn again :D

faeriegirl

LOL!

ok Flymake Highthing (and I made that one up myself :P)

Embala

Rayek? - please say NOoooo!

faeriegirl

NO it's your turn again ;)

Embala

Funny-dance Highthing

faeriegirl

Grin Chot?

Embala

Grin Your turn

faeriegirl

last few were so easy... :P

Seegood Highthing!

Embala

Hmmm ... wild guess ... Scouter? Wink

faeriegirl

and that's the fun part... it's NOT SCOUTER! :D :twisted:

RedheadEmber

Now.... this is completely insane... but... Suntoucher? :? He [i:d98ef9db84]does[/i:d98ef9db84] "seegood"... although not in the traditional sense!

faeriegirl

nice try, but it ain't Suntoucher either :)

Embala

Then Sharpsight :!:

faeriegirl

yup!
your turn!

Embala

Sharp-tongued plenty-cub Highthing

faeriegirl

that's gotta be Woodlock :P
cuz Rainsong isn't sharp-tongued...

Embala

... and Woodlock isn't either (except one time maybe) -> NO :twisted:

faeriegirl

Cutter?
Strongbow? (but he doesn't speak! he sends! does that count for sharp-tongued?)

Embala

[b:104c3697ee][size=18:104c3697ee]NO[/size:104c3697ee][/b:104c3697ee] :twisted:

faeriegirl

*slaps forehead* I should think further than the living elves!

Rahnee?
Timmorn?

Embala

*slaps forehead* I should think further than the living elves! - Good idea Grin

Rahnee? - NO
Timmorn? - NO

faeriegirl

Prey-Pacer?

Embala

NO :twisted:

MichaelChandler

Kahvi?

Embala

NO

Elaisa

hmmmm total stab in the dark but:

Mantricker??

Embala

No

faeriegirl

how much cubs is plenty? more than 1? more than 3? more than 10? :?

faeriegirl

Bearclaw? there was mentioning of more cubs&lifemates before Joyleaf/Cutter, right?

Embala

how much cubs is plenty?
more than 1? - definitely
more than 3? - yes ... very probably
more than 10? - no ... rather not

Bearclaw? - NO ... would call him rather fast-fisted than sharp-tongued Grin

faeriegirl

Freefoot?
Goodtree?
One-eye?
Skyfire?
Two-Spear?

really, these are becoming total stabs in the dark :?

Embala

[b:c694b75b5f][size=18:c694b75b5f]NO[/size:c694b75b5f][/b:c694b75b5f]

... you are still thinking too "narrow" ... the past offers more :)

MichaelChandler

By sharp tongued, you [b:6bc49f5afe]do[/b:6bc49f5afe] mean smart mouthed or scolding, right?

Embala

yes

jeb

Stongbow was guessed, but what about Moonshade?

Embala

Now ... she has 3 cubs - and she can be sharp-tongued ... a possible choice but nt mine.

Look in the past .. tho one of the namegiving attributes is [b:076a80e96c]not shown[/b:076a80e96c] :twisted:

faeriegirl

nastybad gamething, you!
*sigh* ok ok i'll start re-reading BoTC and stuff...
[size=7:6a5b5587ad]instead of studying, lol [/size:6a5b5587ad]

Embala

:nuh-uh: ... not so good Grin

... maybe you should go on asking in the Who am I game ... could give you a better start :P

faeriegirl

you're not Willowgreen, are you?

Embala

NO

[size=7:c25b320678]... don't look too far away ...[/size:c25b320678]

faeriegirl

Rellah, maybe? though I wouldn't know how many cubs she had, she's certainly sharp-tongued!

Embala

Definitely sharptounged! ... and following the prose books she "recognized many times, mostly Wolfriders" - Rellah's right :D

... told you it would be easy when the first is solved :P

faeriegirl

yea, I don't have those prose books... where can I get them? you seem to like choosing characters from those books... ;)

ok, next one: (easy!)
Softhands Highthing

Embala

first: be calm ... I've the prose books but haven't read them til now ... I don't tend to chose characters from them - except they are in the comics, too :twisted:
[i:b97395247f]Guess the only realistic chance to get them is american ebay[/i:b97395247f] :?


second: What you call "somple" mostly gets really difficult for me Wink
obvious guess: Leetah?

faeriegirl

Well obviously this one was indeed easy... since it indeed meant Leetah!

and now I'm going to bed. See you all tomorrow!

Embala

... and my turn again :roll:

We-thing Big-thing

faeriegirl

We-thing? :? what do you mean?
Shuna?

Embala

Quote:
faeriegirl

We-thing? :? what do you mean?
Shuna?



The first answer I definitely will not answer - that's the essential of the whole thing :P but ... could be as well Big-thing We-thing :P

And it's not Shuna.

faeriegirl

the way I read it it's a Bigthing raised by 'we', so 'us'. being the elves.

Khorbasi?

or, maybe Lehrigen (since he knows so much about elves)?

otherwise I don't think I really understand the name. lol. No hint? ;)

Embala

neither ... nor ...

... and the wrong "way of reading", too :(

Think about preserver names (hint hint):
Humans are ?...
Elves are ?...
? are ?...

It's so easy when you know about just 2 facts ... and maybe hopeless if you are uninformed about only 1.

Need a better hint?

faeriegirl

Elves=Highthings
Humans=Bigthings
Trolls=Dig-digs
and some animal names which this is not, right?

how should I read it then? :? :? :?

Embala

as it is spelled Grin

we - thing ...this game is called Preserver names, you know

faeriegirl

Surprised Ofcourse! Big preserver! ROSIE!!!

Embala

YES - big and human-blooded :P

faeriegirl

the only new name I had thought of till now...

Blindmake Highthing (and I think it's easy ;))

Embala

Raenafel?

faeriegirl

NO

Embala

*slaps head* Wrong Crown aka Winnowill?
