dusted off in read-only

My original idea was to have a layered nomenclature, with the Sheyic versions of different names rendering hard K's as soft C's (parallel to the difference between latinized version of Greek names, where things like the original Kyklops are rendered as Cyclops). But at some point in the naming frenzy I got lazy, and whatever systematicity I originally had got lost in the shuffle - I always told myself that I would 'straighten in out later' and change those hard C's (as in Cishaurim) into K's. But as a ranking priest of the Great God Procrastidemus, I was obligated to fulfill the demands of my sacred office and put it off. I've tried to straighten things out in the Encyclopaedia, but I'd be lying if I told you I was entirely happy. view post
