Wonder if this is where the new rings come from?
given the names of the rings, that makes sense.
(shameless wiki summarizing)
Like Yilbegan, a type of dragon-esque creature. Yilbegan is Siberian, Zilant is Slavic, both are Russian)
only thing I can find for Corneus is a type of freshwater snail, Planorbarius corneus, or Great Ramshorn. Given that Orcus is the origin of daemons, and daemons, demons, and orcs, are all typically represented as having horns, I guess. ??
Verthandi: Note: That's a voiced "th", for those who are curious, like in that or those
An Old Norse word for a spell or incantation
a Veela is the Slavic version of a Nymph
This could be either or both; Verthandi is basically part of the Norse version of the "Fates". Unless Verthandi is a different NM, and the fairy NM has a different name, meaning that there's a 7th NM hiding in the .dats somewhere, this is where the Voidwalker <-> rings theory gets botched up
Romanian, Troubled spirits of the dead, which are generally associated with zombies and vampires
Brobdingnag, the subject of the second part of Johnathan Swift's novel, Gulliver's Travels, is a land full of proportionally giant life. (Giant Clot. Horrible pun, SE, just horrible. Krabkatoa is funny, but this is just groan-worthy)
Blobnag Ring: Blob
Karka is Sanskrit for "lobster" or "crab", which had some role in naming Krakatoa.
Also, I would like to state now; as awesome as Krabkatoa is, his father, Bubbly Bernie is still more amazing. Edited, Mar 22nd 2010 6:56pm by Jinte
