      je propose qu au lieu de traduire undermine en francais ce qui donnera tout sauf un nom de maison, on le traduise en latin avec la racine Suffodio qui vzut dire saper, fouiller, transpercer par en dessous

      Pour le coup Maison Suffodio ressemble a un nom de maison , c est plutot classe et s accord bien avec siccara et pestis.

      Rakachit est nul a chier sinon aussi au passage, je trouve que les noms vermines sont vraiment pas geniaux...
      ils auraient pu partir sur la racine de crepitus pour le clan rakachit

      « Suffodio » c'est la 1p.s. de l'ind.prés., ça veut dire « je sabote ».

      Le sapeur sera « Suffossor »

      C'est un mot composé de quatre éléments :
      sub- : préfixe signifiant “en dessous”, le “b” tombe devant le “f”, un peu comme dans “offrir” (ob-fere)
      fod : creuser, du proto-indo-européen “bhod”
      -s- : racine du supin, devant laquelle le “d” tombe
      -or : suffixe d'agent

      Perso je trouve le mot « Subfossor »
      plus cool (en ignorant la chute du “b” devant le “f”, même chez les Vermines il peut y avoir des archaïsmes qui empêchent les déformations phonétiques ^^) ; d'ailleurs, dans le Wiktionnaire en anglais, il est clairement écrit que la version en gardant le “b” n'est pas une erreur mais une simple variante du même mot.

    • In the other hand i know another universe where rats are sentient. Fallen London. There they are the best engineers when it comes to small mechanisms (because they still have the size of average rat). In this universe when something made by this guys it called "ratwork".

    • The pneumatic rat sender is a great idea, yeah. Sadly, the Vermin aren't rat sized anymore, so they aren't that much better at miniaturization. There's more settings with sentient rats, though. Though none that are all that similar to Skaven that I can think of. Nezumi are more ninjas than anything, cranium rats have a psychic hivemind... the only fitting thing is the singing rats from Neil Gaiman's Coraline. I had that song in my signature for a while.
