Polloy: looks like Poland. If only it was having a międzymorze.
Arvum: doesn’t seem that weird to me, unless it was changed to Arvym on the map. I can’t tell.
Aedraad: I guess that long vowels are phonemic in the merpeople language? Should be Ædraad because it looks cooler. [shot]
Volupris: sounds a little better when you find out about its Frenchy pronunciation (the S isn’t pronounced).
Tarq’oum: this one is really weird, I agree. I still maintain the suggestion of changing it to Tarquum so it looks more like “equus” (for horsies). Can a person with the physiology of a horse even pronounce an uvular ejective? Eh, maybe the q’ is supposed to represent the sound of a horse sighing?
Viperae: where the vipers are from.
Doldrum: doldrums are places in the sea where there is a scarcity of winds to push sailboats around, iırc. They used to be deadly to olden-days sailors.
Xiba Region: Agree. I guess it’s pronounced Ziba, unless it’s Greek and it’s Ksiba? Or maybe Khiba…
Biastia: sounds like Beastia, so it’s where the beast (cats pigs etc) djuron are from, I guess. It also sounds a little Italian…
Gargursa: where the bears (ursa) are from!
Neptus Region: looks like Neptune, so I’m guessing it’s either another merperson country or pirate-land.
Is it white-heads or whiteheads now? Because whiteheads kinda reminds me of skinheads. I guess they white-washed their reputation. sorry gomen plsnokill
I made a tribute to Satoru Iwata. [/quote]
“Wait, ‘tribute’? [looks up]”
Goddammit why do the good have to die so young. I know it’s a corny thing to say, but I will miss his presence every E3 and I can’t imagine Nintendo ever being in better hands than his. Rest in peace, Iwata-san.
