TOPIC: Why Cavadar?

Why Cavadar? 5 years 2 months ago #1

Why was the name chosen "Cavadar"? I get that it sounds kind of like "Cadaver", but then why not "Cadavar" or something? Is this a character already in the True Dungeon universe? Will they be introduced soon? I am curious to know more.

And why his/her teeth? Why not other bones or possessions of this person? And why are there 7 teeth? Why not 32 (a full set)? Or 16 (just the top half or bottom half)? Or is Cavadar not human and whichever creature it is only has seven teeth or it is human and lost the other 25 teeth long before dying? Why are the teeth gold?
I play Wizard.

All excellent questions! I think (hope) Jeff will reveal that to us as time goes on. Not sure anyone knows....or if they do they aren't saying.

Maybe he'll write up a little blurb for the tokenDB. What else does he have to do? :whistle:

It wasn't prior to 2015.

Perhaps that's all that remain?

That assumes Cavadar is/was human.

Perhaps Cavadar is/was vain? Perhaps they were coated post-extraction? Perhaps they only look gold but are really something else? Perhaps Cavadar's species grows gold teeth naturally?

I don't know the answers to any of your questions, but I do know Jeff loves to incorporate old-school D&D stuff into TD. Perhaps consulting the oracle of google could provide insight...?

Also, there are a lot of names on tokens (notably, legendaries) that have not been incorporated into actual gameplay.
Have you looked it up in the TDb?
Please post TDb corrections/suggestions in this thread.

Or perhaps Hermie had something to do with the gold teeth

The real question should be can my TD character remove one of his own teeth every year and insert the tooth of Cavadar in its place every year? That's the important issue.

Hermie can care for that for you...

No idea on the name but I suspect the Toothiness is a reference to an old 1st edition artifact (The Teeth of Dahlver-Nar)

During second edition the teeth were said to be those of a dragon. Perhaps Jeff is giving us a subtle clue Smoak had a mate (though truthfully I've got no idea).

Perhaps inspired by the hand of Vecna and the eye of Vecna.

Or the infamous head of Vecna practical joke.:laugh:

Perhaps 7 is all that we'll be able to find? Or perhaps 7 is the number of teeth he had that were gold?

At one per year, 32, or even 16, is out of the question. Seven is probably stretching the limits of the average American's atten... I can't wait for the season premier of Game of Thrones.

What I'm more curious about is... how many teeth did Cavadar have, because I have a modest stack of them already, and I know a bunch of you do too. :)
