When I was a kid (which was quite a long time ago ) I played D&D. There was some adventure or booklet of pre-generated NPC's (I don't remember which) that had a guy in it named 'Rhale, Rhalle or Ralle'-- I really don't remember the right spelling. For some reason I thought it was a cool name and made up a whole life-history and world-story about him.When I came back to playing videogames a few years back, I remembered the name. I use it for all fantasy games.I've used it in MMO's and people often ask me if I'm Norwegian or Swedish. I think someone said that it means something like 'groan'. But I don't know if that's true or not.If someone who knows could tell me where it comes from or what it means, I'd be eternally grateful.
