In an exclusive interview with RPG Blog 2, Wizards of the Coast Associate Dungeons & Dragons Designer Firstson Familyname seemed perplexed at the backlash against many of the noun-verb, noun-noun, and adjective-noun type of naming conventions used in D&D, such as the Fire Archon Blazesteel, Bloodspike Behemoth, Shadowfell, Trollhaunt, and Thunderspire, to name a few.
“I just don’t get it. From the earliest days I can remember, when my parents got me my first Poopmaker Puppy, that’s how we spoke,” Familyname confessed.
“We lived in a Redbrick Ranchhouse, and all in all my childhood was pretty normal, from playing with a Bestfriend Neighborkid to falling in love with a Teencrush Heartbreaker.
Why any Gamerfan feels like I’m naming D&D monsters or powers strangely, I’m not sure”.
Mr. Familyname admits the criticism has been trying.
“My wife, Spouseunit Nicewife has turned into a Spouseunit Nagwife, and that's been hard for my kids, Firstborn and Uplannedbaby".
Still, Firstson’s faith in himself and a higher power keep him going.
“I just have to trust that I am an Elite Firstson, and my life is in the hands of Personalsavior Jesuschrist”.
