A totally stellar contest!

Post by Eric of Atrophy on Fri Jun 12, 2009 10:11 pm

Ok, ok ok! In light of all of the contests popping up around here, I thought I'd throw one of my own out. Ya ready?

Name the six planets in the Aenean solar system!
Hint #1: Aenea is the second one!
Hint #2: Know your posts!
Hint #3: Don't pester Svair - he's had a hard day!

The contest is open to everyone except The Amethyst Dragon, for obvious reasons! The prize, something special, goes to the lucky poster who puts them all down first! See Dungeon Mistress Ana if you win!

Now, then, on with the show!

Huh.... I must be losing it..... at most I can only think of 4, and three of those technically are not planets.... though they could be considered celestial bodies....

It's cutnpasted from the same website where I learned that if The Amethyst Dragon implements the Goldfangs as he originally conceived them, low-level PCs would have a tougher time with the Teshian ore quest than now.

I originally found the website when trying (unsuccessfully) to see where the name "Aenea" came from:

http://www.amethyst-dragon.com/Aenea/index.html

There is some pretty neat information there.

Yup, that's exactly how I did it lol Got bored one day a while back and googled Aenea just to see what came up/ figure out how The Amethyst Dragon had come up with the name/ find etymologies and so forth; and that's the website I came across. I found the planet list under the Spell Jammer information Razz

Neat! That makes at least two of us, and probably more. I think The Amethyst Dragon gave an origin for the name at one point, not nearly as complicated as I was assuming :-)

All righty, Ra Cha Chongo! You've got a love of the old links, I see! Next time Dungeon Mistress Ana sees you online, she'll hook you up with a stellar goodie!

Thanks for playing, and winning too!

The origin of the name for Aenea:

I needed a name for my campaign world, something different. I finally just made up a word that I could have fun with...it's spelled the same way forwards and backwards!
