The name of the world

Post by ilmarinen » 17 Jun 2019, 23:22

So after some digging I found out neither Nightmare, nor Faerun, nor ShadowGate are accepted names of our planetoid. Thus we have a big decision to make: what is the name of the world, at least as it is known in central civilizations? Make your suggestions, add any lore to them, I'll add them to the poll. First two opions had been generated with pwgen(1) with some summer randomness to the lore, so don't pay much attention to them. This poll will be enabled in the end of August and will active for a long while, perhaps untill pumkin holliday in october (I forgot how it is called), and you can vote for as many as five options (when there will be that many),

Gather suggestions here, by the end of summer (Summer never ends), I'll enable the poll. Best option wins.

Current options are:
  • Rie'Seekah, primordeal name given to the planetoid by saurian astronomers
  • Eera, the name used by human civilizations
  • Maloka, the draconic name for land, and what they've used for millinnea to describe the planet
  • Gaea, the name given to the world by the oldest shamen and wise men. (totally stolen from Ancient Greek).
  • Terra Magica - for a different kind of earth
  • The Realms - Massaraksh!

People have been calling it "The Realms" in game for as long as I remember. It's pretty egocentric, so naturally I like it.

If nobody makes conflicting versions I'll just declare all of them true...

These names do not conflict, I see no reason for a poll. Lore-wize they all are valid now, but use of the name Yineera is recommended for mechanical aspects where it is aplliable.
Final resolution:
  • Rie'Seekah, or just Rie, use this if you're pompous academic type or a Saurian.
  • Eera, this is the name you'll use on a market day in Shadow.
  • Maloka, use this if you're a pompous academic type, a dragon, a kobold, dragon worshiper, or just love to breath fire.
  • Gaea, for nature-related folk, beastmen, druids, rangers, bugbears.
  • Terra Magica, use this if you're pompous academic type?
  • The Realms, use this if you're confused or aren't cat friendly.
