I like Xaligus

Why not Cavax? Or Calax?

I like Xaligus

Love it.

That said, I agree that recreating a realm with an old one's name is to be discouraged. But only if it's using the exact same name. Recycling or referring to another realm's name, though, I quite enjoy, as it makes the realm feel like it has a deeper connection to the game world, and isn't just some random name pulled out of someone's ass. I have no issues with some formulation of "New Xavax".

I, for one, welcome our new stick-bopping overlord and his idea for persistent descriptions in a unified database.

I'm not so certain. GX was unique in a lot of ways, but it was common goals and interests that truly transformed the Xavax from a disparate group of refugees into a unified people. Be attacked from all sides engendered a deeply rooted sense of personal and national pride among them. All I really did as a player was take advantage of what was already there, like a conduit, so I think that any character could have filled Selenia's role. Even though she's withdrawn, I still get the feeling that what made them into a unified people is still there, even though they've devolved into idealistic factions, New bloods and old, pro-sirion and anti, Selenist and separatists, they all want the same things in the end. So long as they keep wanting those things, Xavax will endure in their hearts and minds even without the physical realm. They never really splintered, you see. Their faith keeps them together.


That said, I still don't think that some version of "New Xavax" is a good idea, at least not politically. Besides, they're missing a pristine opportunity to make "Xaligus" a thing. ;D

That's just my feeling, and I certainly would love to be proven wrong. I am just a bit biased, after all.

Even if GX had survived, its culture would have become pretty much unrecognisable within six months of Selenia going (as she inevitably would one day). All it takes is for the driving force of any given culture or atmosphere to disappear and within half a year most nobles in the realm won't even remember it, let alone follow it.

(Which is why the constant cycle of destruction and rebirth is a good thing in the game).

A new name would be more appropriate. Whatever this new realm to be built on Caligus's bones will become, it will certainly be nothing like the Xavax of old.

To be fair it's only been what - three or four months since GX was destroyed? It's going to be founded by Xavaxian nobles and deliberately going to try to preserve and continue the culture of GX. Obviously it's not going to be exactly the same but it's probably got more right than any realm to pay homage to the name of a vanquished one.

Exactly! Glad someone agrees.
