Undead define. (Made up words idea)

Post by Zackarn Yorelas on Thu Aug 13, 2015 3:28 pm

I was giving it some thought after having seen a variety of different spins on the racial description;

Infected / afflicted Gilnean
Lordearonian Human
So on and so forth, so why not the undead, so I put my made up word forward for your consideration.

"Thanatosian"

Thanatos
ˈθanətɒs/
noun
noun: Thanatos
(in Freudian theory) the death instinct.
Origin

from Greek thanatos ‘death’.

What do my fellow deader's think?

Sounds very made up indeed.

But let's be honest Lorderonian and all that just sounds wrong.

I've seen a "Southshorian" once.

Edit:

Yes, though it was not a dragon, or had dragon blood, or anything... Strange of that nature. it was simply a knight, who wore dragon'esk armor and rode a proto drake.

Perfectly reasonable to my mind; I moved over here because I missed RP-PvP, my sub exspired in AD and I felt no pressing cause to re-new it, but when I decided to I also decided if I was going to play again, it would be here.

Ah Swifthand, never have I encountered a more apt multi-tasker. I do miss having him to DM events. Still thank you for the welcome.

Sadly the last RP-PvP campaign happened a bit ago, so might be a while till something big like that happens again.

Thanks for reminding. Exams gone, time to return planning table.

On topic: I'd just use + . It's obvious enough that one with their glowing eyes is dead.

If one use Warrior for the task though, then using Undead would be my suggestion to go.

Could you not just do an AV skirmish and have every DB RPer in it with room for friends?

*goes to cry in the corner as the main organizer of the event*

No but really, if you have suggestions on 'how' or 'what' would be cooler to see in terms of RP-PvP Events, all feedback is welcome. We can't really read your heads and know those ideas and thoughts before you share them..... however, I think that should be done in the end of the Campaign thread at: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

That's fine, my question was answered some time ago, as for RP-PvP events I have some ideas. Hopefully I'll be in a position to act on them at some point.

The key is context and ensuring a competitive atmosphere, from what I hear it always ends up as one side having a colossal advantage over the other.

Any attempt to create RP-PvP should have that consideration at it's core, OOC agreements need to be made to keep that competitive vibe, each side needs to have a realistic chance to win or it's an entirely unrewarding experience IMO.

Takes two to tango after all.

-ian is a suffix in the English language denoting relation or belonging to the noun it is attached to. So let's say "Southshorian rogue" means a rogue that is related to Southshore/belonging to Southshore. For example by having been born there.

I don't understand why perfectly valid English is being mocked by pretentious "I wish I was a grammar snob" know-it-alls.

Also probably google the grammatical conventions you're mocking before telling people they're doing something wrong.

Well... Diversity is good, I guess. For me all those sounds like family clans. We are lucky there is no place nor town called Kardash.

I'm not a DK, but I think it's fair enough. There are just few local names like: Azjol-Nerub, Coldara, Sholazar, or Zul'Drak. The "Drak," however, occurs very often in Troll settlements, so maybe it links with the fact, that these parts were home for Dragons (Dra[k/c]orian wouldn't fit much; Coldarian and Nerubian would also point in different directions). Maybe take some Icecrown gate? Those are even tranlsated ingame. Or simply Northrendian?

The "Drak" in Zul'drak is reffering to the Drakkari tribe that lives there, mate. It doesn't occour "very often" in troll settlements. Only when reffering to the Drakkari.

But, of course it does, I don't deny it, just speculate why Drakkari tribe is called Drakkari. In majority of languages RL, the morpheme "drak" is connected with dragons as mythical beings, hence my speculation. And, by writing: settlements I meant those there, in Zul'Drak (Gundrak, Drak'Tharon, Drak'Agal, Drak'Mabwa, Drak'Sotra).
