Halloween Update: A Demon With No Name - Yet!

Only a handful of witches and warlocks have met this creature of the underworld. But even they know not its name.

But maybe one among you has been told its name? A silent whisper in the night, a cold breath of something dark and primal speaking ancient syllables into your ear. Tell us the creature's name, so the people of Cormac know what to say when they pray to their gods for protection!

Everyone can participate in this little game. Come up with a fitting name for the demonic creature that rises on the night of Sanhviun and send it to us. We will choose the one we like the most to be the name of the creature in our world. The winner will also be proclaimed - if he or she so wishes - and be listed as "Invoker of [Demon'sName]" in the credits, in addition to the normal credit listing given by the backer tier if he or she is a backer.

Please be aware: Only one submission per person! Otherwise, the demonic creature you're trying to tame will burn you alive there and then.

Suggestions can be submitted below in the comment section of this update, on TwitterFacebook, or in the related thread in our forums. We will collect all names sent our way before the end of the deadline and then choose five of the best – and you will choose the winner by voting on the official Realms Beyond website.

The deadline is 1st November 22:00 (10PM) CET 

Who knows the creature's name? Come forth, wise men and women of our realms, and tell us!

      @Miguel: I personally voted for Alsharooth "The Devourer", so maybe you allow us to use this name as well? :)

      Thank you for voting! The name of the demon has been finally revealed:

      'Heftherast'

      Congratulation to the invoker: Samuel Reifert also known as @trefierleum on Twitter.

      Thank you all for your fantastic contributions! Even if your name hasn't won the first place, we will probably use it to name one of the numerous other demonic creatures in the world of Argea.

      "She were not first nor greatest of witches but she hated rest of them. With lot of effort and time she research an summoning ritual so dark and powerfull she were unable to cast it at first. After some years gathering power she finally did.. ..and in her last dying breath she realize, Witchbane would devour all witches without proper protecting hexes in the world.. ..starting from her".

      Since the people of Cormac seems to follow some Gaelic tradition, I'm quite sure this demon is called Caorthammach. :)
