Naming Conventions


For translations, contact Mr. Skeli’n

Xiruen: Despite family structure having little importance to Xiruen as a species, given, chosen, and earned names carry weight. A Xiruen can have one to three names, ‘Given’, ‘Given Chosen’, ‘Given-Earned’, or ‘Given Chosen Earned’. Given names are not often based on words from the Xiruen language, but Chosen and Earned always are. Given names end in doubles of the same vowel if it was the mother’s name and double of the same consonant if it was the father’s name. Neither doubling changes pronunciation.
Avotoc: Avotoc have two names that usually combine for no more than four syllables. The two names are separated by an apostrophe with no space, eg. Le’Re. The first name is the family/clan name and is almost always one syllable and always ends in a vowel. To see which letters are available to use in names, check out Aevot.
Kettlah: Kettlah have a family name and a given name. The family name begins and ends with a vowel, usually the same vowel, and is put between a K and an H. Given names usually start with a consonant, and always end with one, usually an M or N.
Poria: Poria have fore- and surnames, with a preposition between the two. Forenames are a combination of given, chosen, and earned. Poria are not named at birth, and can be given, earn, or choose a name during their formative education. Forenames are usually based on words in Jibhaga, while surnames are the city where that Poria is from. The preposition dul is used for well-respected Poria, otherwise yla is used.
Quarryn: Quarryn are perhaps the easiest to name, as they have a singular name that usually does not hold any specific translated meaning. That being said, they have a tendency to be names that evoke elves of traditional fantasy. For more on their language and alphabet, see Taenglaa.
Sha’an: Coming Soon
Turath: Coming Soon

 

Species’ Descriptions


Xiruen:

Lumbering behemoths whose governmental shakeup has resulted in further polarization between Realms. 100 years ago the Realms were different branches of government, but now each is forced to control territory from constant invasion attempts by other realms.
While not the smartest Sentient Species innately, they are no neanderthals. They have adapted reasonably well to their harsh desert-like climate and are a hardy, hard-trusting bunch.

Avotoc:

Diminutive skeleton-like creatures who hail from areas where expansive seas quickly turn into mountains. Most of their businesses and hobbies revolve around water, what’s in it, and what you can do with it. Some might call the Avotoc bipolar, as they quickly can go from calm to upset and back. Really, they feel in extremes with few Avotoc being lukewarm on any subject, as they hold their opinions strongly. Though a small number of Avotoc specialize in making anything waterproof, most of the market lately revolves around water-based merchant-goods and trades.
Kettlah: Tall but not gigantic, Kettlah are one of the more enigmatic species. They have no vocal box, but speak into other Omneuttian’s minds, and are able to read most thoughts. As a culture, their main export is young-adult Kettlah who search Omneutta for knowledge, often returning back to the Vale Reef to apply this knowledge in continued governance of their species.
Poria: The often brilliant, mad scientists of Omneutta. Generally, they crave knowledge for knowledge’s sake, but often completely reinvent their society if a better way of doing things is found. Their entire body is made of lava, save for an outer layer of rock plates which can change location at the will of an individual, usually to protect others from contact.

Quarryn:

Arguably the weirdest Sentient Species in Omneutta. For starters the Quarryn don’t have eyes, and feel through their three feet, which can leave them stranded on some types of non-natural ground. Their major arteries are on the exterior of their bodies, and grow a hard wood-like exterior for protection. For centuries they have slowly been recovering the Withered Woods, though as of late the number of Quarryn attempting to aid the efforts has increased dramatically.
Sha’an: Sha’an are isolated and non-social by nature, and have a general distrust of authority figures. Sha’an almost always wear masks as a representation of their individuality, as most of their bodies are usually covered by cloaks to protect them from the elements. Few Sha’an can be found across Omneutta, as The Blade – their homeland – is covered by constant dystopian strife caused by infighting among those in power.

Turath:

The Turath love learning almost as much as the Poria, and are generally very open-minded quick-thinkers. While their economy is very diverse as a result of the many trades and career paths taught and learned by Turath, their main career available to both outsiders and Turath alike is teaching.
