Just out of curiosity, do you know where the names did come from (as they aren't listed in the Bible)?
Traditions identify a variety of different names for the Magi. In the Western Christian church they have been commonly known since the 8th century as Caspar, Melchior, and Balthasar. These derive from an early 6th century Greek manuscript in Alexandria. The Latin text Collectanea et Flores continues the tradition of three kings and their names and gives additional details. This text is said to be from the 8th century, of Irish origin.
Caspar is also sometimes given as Gaspar or Jaspar. One candidate for the origin of the name Caspar appears in the Acts of Thomas as Gondophares (AD 21 – c.AD 47), i.e., Gudapharasa (from which 'Caspar' might derive as corruption of 'Gaspar'). This Gondophares declared independence from the Arsacids to become the first Indo-Parthian king and who was allegedly visited by Thomas the Apostle. Christian legend may have chosen Gondofarr simply because he was an eastern king living in the right time period.
In contrast, the Syrian Christians name the Magi Larvandad, Gushnasaph, and Hormisdas. These names have a far greater likelihood of being originally Persian, though that does not, of course, guarantee their authenticity.
In the Eastern churches, Ethiopian Christianity, for instance, has Hor, Karsudan, and Basanater, while the Armenians have Kagpha, Badadakharida and Badadilma. Many Chinese Christians believe that one of the magi came from China. This final idea is used by Christopher Moore in his novel Lamb.

I just started a new character because I needed to use the console to test out my gem mod and he's definitely hiding back there...
The yellow circle is where he's standing on my normal character and the yellow X is where I told him to stand in TorchEd. He likes to wander apparently.

Gasper is selling a Dragon King's Left Eye! He's not supposed to sell that, is he? I mean, isn't that a fish item (it's in the items/fish/tooth folder), and like, an uber unique drop from a boss monster in the Dragon Cave mod or something?
Jupiah wrote:[Edit] Also, maybe this is a conflict with another map mod or I'm just unlucky, but I can't seem to find any Aegis Tomb Maps in Gasper's inventory. Any advice?
You're not unlucky, it's a bug in the Aegis Maps.
The map file for that has
So they stop showing up at higher levels. IT should be a max of 999 or something so it will continue to spawn.
