So, I'm retheming rom to sci-fi in case you didn't know or care. I was thinking that instead of trying to plumb the depths of my nerd culture trivia… I could gather bits and pieces from other people.
So, I've redone Hassan as a Dreddnought AI's avatar. Why? Cause Judge Dredd was the man. Stalone… was also the man. But in different movies. I'm also making service mobs in Midgaard into AIs. Some are present through projection… some have avatars… and the unloved and un-prioritized just have a box in the wall.
So, I'm gonna list a few NPCs from the Midgaard ship (yes, it's a ship now. Full of spacemen.) and you could suggest a different name for it as some nerdy reference. It'll be fun! Do it!
beastly fido The thief The beggar The grocer The armorer The pets… dog cat wolf… ok.
That's enough… So, any suggestions would be appreciated and immortalized. (or is it mortalized? I imagine it will be completely gone one day.) Also: drink names. Like that one from the almighty "trilogy". I forget the name. Of the drink.

"The best drink in existence is the Pan-Galactic Gargle Blaster. The effect of drinking one of these is rather like having your brains smashed out with a slice of lemon, wrapped around a large gold brick. The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy will tell you on which planets the best ones are brewed, how much you can expect to pay for one, and which voluntary organizations exist to help you recover afterwards.
"Fortunately, the Guide also tells you how you can make one yourself." (And, of course, it's gin-based.)

Recipe from "Spiders" Nightclub in Hull,UK
invented in 1981 By george mercer and mark borril, formely known as a firebird special, and is a combination of a harvey wallbanger and a tarantula! named so because anybody who drank one passed out , Very nice and a pint of it is served for the reasonable price of 3.20
* 25ml Vodka * 25ml Pernod * 25ml Galliano * 25ml Blackcurrant * 25ml Orange juice * Enough cider to top up
This is the most drinkable form of it I've found, in case anyone was interested.
And I should prolly mention that the npcs where there are more than one (like thieves and fidos) prolly won't get their own specific name. Delta grade criminal for the thief. I've replaced the wimpy act with a hp% trigger, where he will yell "I will live forever, or die trying!" and runs away.
