Looking for a Name

My Son-in-Law to be to try a new class and so chose a Warlock that casts Druidic spells.  So there is Fire-Lord, Ice-Lord, Death-Lord and now.....Nature Lord?

Not sure I like the name so I was asking for input. We already thought of 
Druid-Lord
Wilderness-Lord
Arboreal-Lord
Forest-Lord
Green-Lord

Help!

Lord of the Wild.
or Wild Lord.

Otherwise I like Forest Lord the best. Druid Lord would probably upset some Druids.

  Though I think he (the player) would like to be able to cast magic sooner.  Waiting for 7th level would mean 3 years real time wait.

Re: Looking for a Name

I like GreenLord, (makes me thing of greenmen) or perhaps Tiaga-Lord... though Wild Lord has its place too...

Re: Looking for a Name

The official druid description offers several sources of druidic power (see bold, below), so I think there’s significant latitude here for your son-in-law to choose whatever sounds cool to him based on how he sees his warlock (and without constraining future players of such a combination to the same title). For example, I think Ancestral Lord, Spirit Lord, Elemental Lord, Sun Lord, Moon Lord or even Lord of the Balance could all easily work depending on the situation.

Personally, I would probably shy away from a single, all-defining title for every case of a warlock-druid, especially anything that would suggest something like a “protector of the forest,” as that seems way too narrow and modern for AS&SH. For example, I remember reading Julius Caesar’s description of people he called druids in De Bello Gallico, the earliest known reference to druids in like 55 BC - they were burning people alive in wicker simulacra, not protecting the forests and its animals, lol! Anyway, just my two cents. YMMV. 

Druids are the spiritual and ofttimes temporal leaders of tribes and communities, both settled and nomadic, of typically Keltic ancestry. They are sorcerous priests who obtain their abilities from ancestral and animistic spirits; too, druids harness elemental powers that they employ to macabre effect in their rituals. Druids also draw strength from the sun, the moons, the stars, Saturn, and Saturn’s moons; some are said to derive their sorcerous gifts from Neutrality itself.

Wow!! Lots of good choices here!  I will present all of these to the young man and let him make a choice.

Thanks!

Sure. I mean, look, if he wants Nature Boy or Furry Lord Protector of Nuts, Berries and Woodland Critters, it’s your game - do what you will, lol!

It's choices like these that separate sons-in-law to be from non-starters.

If he wants Nature Boy, then you need to make him bust a Rick Flair "Wooooooo!" at least once a session.

True! We will permit Nature Boy on that condition!

Re: Looking for a Name

It might as well be anything or nothing. Class names shouldn't exist "in-universe" anyway and the characters are not actually speaking English.

That's it, I'm starting a new Foolsgrave character, class of Nature Boy, with "Woooo!" as his battle cry.
