    Names of leaders of the main cities

    Post  Nemo on Wed Oct 06, 2010 1:45 pm

    So for the main city on Anesidora: i was thinking that we would have two leaders that were twins that worked together, one would be called Enma, which is also called yama who is a deity from Buddhist and Hindu tradition who judges the dead with either reward or punishment. and the other one could be named CIvit, which is cambodia for life. what do you think of these names?
    ok so the leader of the main city in Darfage: i was thinking we could call him jumping mouse, since that is muad dib in dune.

    Do you want to just flat-out call him jumping mouse, or name him after them? Alternatively, Muad dib also wanted to be so named because the image appeared on the moon. Well, a moon. Will something similar be true in Darfage?

    Well at first I was thinking that we should name him using the scientific name for the kangaroo rat, but then I thought of the moon thing. We could name him after anything and just make it be on the moon.

    So... what would be the most ironic?

    So I did some research and mu'addib is an Arabic phrase meaning educator. I got a translation into Hausa, the language we used for Darfage's name, and it came out as Malam. Then we could just change the moon's face from a jumping mouse to some kind of warthog or something.

    for the holy city i was thinking the ruler could be called Caliburn or some other holy swords name. and i think that the main person in Coruscould should be named The Doctor or The M.D. or something like that.

    i was thinking that the main leader of the arcane city could be called Hurbert East. or we could have more then one fighting faction, one is more alchemical and the other is pure magic, both searching for immortality through there own means. so Hurbert East could be the leader of the alchemical and the leader of the magical could be called Grigori

    well s/he could always be in the same place, and every day it could randomise hair style, color, clothing, and name.

    What if the name is the same everyday, but every other aspect different? Generally in the same place, always in the palace, but sometimes s/he moves. Gender, hair, skin, apparent class, all these things change daily.

    So for the Law city I suggested a Latin name, Edictorum Ordines. I'm looking at Greek for chaos to build on the whole 'opposed' thing.

    So for either the city or the leader of Chaos, what about "Shaos Ataktos" meaning the chasm of disorder or pit of chaos?

    i think that should be the city name, or maybe the planet name and we could have it in the middle of a collapsing rift of some kind, and we could use the other name for the law planet, but either or would work
