  • So I see that one of the most disliked things are the cult names. While I think some of this may be related to the idea of cults themselves (or at least their application), I guess this could be alleviated with changing the names to more telling. Like, say, the Cult of Blood, the Cult of Senses, the Cult of the Hunt and the Cult of Discipline (sorry, I don't really get what is the idea with the last one - maybe the Cult of BlackGuardFanboys? ).

    That way we would automatically know what which cult embodies, what it does on the battlefield and which Old God to link with them (so, KhaineTM, SlaaneshTM-or-some-minor-elven-deity, KurnousTM, respectively).

    Totally agree, i think that the names of these "new" cults have been a problem from the beggining. We are very influenced by the "previous" background that we al know.

    I like your proposal about renaming the cults, another option could be, helping us with the new background that is being prepared, instead of differentiating troops or units for their cult, differenciate them by the city or province from which they come.

    For example, instead of "cult of Olaron" change it by "Gar Daecos Host" or something similar, and with the other cults the same.

    This could be explained by the fact that in the city or province "X" the majority cult is to the God o Goddes "X".

    100% agreed.

    I think the Cults need a lot more backup and symbolism. Like:

    Nabh - Goddess of Blood. Colour: red. Symbol: dagger, serpent.
    Yema: Goddess of Air. Colour: Blue and Sea Green. Symbol: wings, sword, water drake
    Cadaron: God of Lightning. Colour: Purple. Symbol: arrow, crescent moon, lightning bolt
    Olaron: Lord of the Gods. Colour: purple and gold. Symbol: skull.

    Something like that. It needs to come "alive" so to speak.

    More on Elven Pantheon in one of the future scrolls. The article on Nabh is mostly done, others are to be structured for release soon. In general theogony and theology of the 9th Age will presented.

    People do not like "Blades if Nabh"? Ahhhhhh... I frikkin love such fluffy names .... why dont you like it?
    Personally I do not like the phonetics of the deity involved. Nabh (also Yema). I have a hard time buying the names, ever since I first read them. Olaron and Cadaron are slightly better, but still just okay in my opinion.

    "Blades of... " works though :P

  • Why??? oh god .... this must be so hard for the BGT .... I frikkin love these names as feel they are with character and uniqueness, and really create a T9A vibe. I fear generic names, and hope T9A has the ballz to keep creating weird fluffy names like Nabh. But it seems there are two sides to the coin here.....
    Booooooaaaaaarsssss .... Chaaaaaaaaaaaaaarge !!!

    Well, of course I do expect nothing less than that all corrsponding buffs and upgrades will very logically and consistently follow the different themes and traits of the Gods and Goddess involved! :thumbup:

    I actually like "Nabh" most of all the Cult names thuis far. But why can't we have a poll for names?
    Let me add a few random options:

    Dhurkon
    Cothunn
    Naggoth
    Kyssa
    Yshma
    Magash
