Results for query "storm":

# expugno : to capture, overcome, subdue, take by storm, gain.
# grano, onis : hailstorm.
# imber : ymber : rain shower, rain storm, pelting rain.
# oppugno : to war with, storm.
# procella : storm, tempest, gale; (milit) charge, onset, wave.
# tempestas : storm, weather.
# tempestuosus : stormy.
# ymber : rain shower, rain storm, pelting rain.

Yar. Let it not be said that the mage never helps anybody.

Personally, I would suggest Onis or Expugno.

Dam Latin....know it all. I never get a chance to come up with some completly rediculus word which translates into some cool english :P like this

Gehirn tot= means brain dead in German
verrückter Angriff =means crazy attack in German
tempo da violência= means time for violence in Portuguese

I love my work

Onis doesn't sound right to me. the name needs to be longer such as Onisius.

so does anyone have an answer to my above question?

HUZZAH! I've done something right!

Anyways,

Thunderstorm:
attonbitus, attonitus

Thunder:
None

Storm:
tempestas, procella, oppugno

Lightning:
levitas

Wizard:
veneficus

That's all I could find for now.

Just a few ideas:

Pain - poena, dolor, morsus

Example - exempoator, exemplum

Lead - plumbum, induco, ago, actum, abduco, egi

Terrify - territo, terreo

Horror - atrox, horror, atrocitas

Faith - fides

Some ideas...
