Thanks for the kind reply, Paul.

Love Gun! :'( I only missed it by a couple of letters, after over 30 years since I seriously spoke Deutsch, can’t you cut me a little slack?

Anyway, the post did what I wanted, generated some discussion and suggestions for alternate names, if the devs want to do that.

How about “Vordern Legion(s)”?

I’m still stumped by Orcs and Goblins, though. Maybe “elf” … I don’t know how to do umlauts, and I’m sure this one is wrong, but I remember a cool song about the Elfking. “Erl” or “Orl” … but those aren’t right, just a bad Anglicization of the sound. When I think of Scandinavian or Germanic elves, the impression is more of a goblin-like creature.

The orcs could be seen as a type of Troll, is there any sort of word for a troll-like creature that would work?

Of course, I can only speak for what sounds cool for a American English speaker. And over here, we only get things like “bigfoot”, or “skunkape”. :-P

In a single player game, there's no such thing as cheating. It's merely "creative manipulation of the default settings"!
