Please provide some guidance over the pronunciation of Ewige's first name. I do not want to get in the habit of saying "Earwig" should we meet in the future . . .

And I assume Jager is pronounced "Yay-Grrr"?

But, regardless, . . . Welcome.

BTW, that is his alias. It means eternal hunter in German.

Well that is a new one on me.   Now I am going to have to do a deep linguistic dive to see if Ewige, Herne and Cernunnos are related.

And I can't read.  Ewige is eternal and Jager is hunter.  i read Slim's reply as Ewige is eternal hunter, which got my history/folklore wheels going and was thinking of linquistic connections to Herne the Hunter and Cernunnos (those two are linquistically related and are both depicted as horned hunters).    Regardless, it was a fun dive!   Welcome to the group!
