Aeon PW
All



It has been a good run with Aeon, but all things run their course and come to an end. I have watched Aeon slowly grow then die off as people moved onto other interests or found worlds that appeal to them more. Instead of leaving the server up and running empty, I have decided to turn off the server and close the player portion of the forums.



I would like to thank those that have put in their time and effort, either as DM's, builders or players. Without your efforts a world can not exist or grow into something more than a concept.



So what next, for me I am not sure, perhaps I shall learn something else perhaps not. I do know my power bill will be smaller next month, so out of sad endings a positive comes.



Goodbye and Goodluck.

PostSubject: Trinity or Triad   Thu Jan 22, 2009 2:20 pm

The church in stormhaven is called Church of the Triad, inside everyone is called and talks about the Trinity. Is this on purpose or a typo?

To me a triad has drug conatations rather than some sort of holy order..

Just wondering Spor..

From wikipedia:

Quote :
Religion

  • Triad, three deities commonly associated together

Just western culture stereotypes making that association Kat - heaps of other uses of the word in other contexts Smile.

Oh, and I don't think most PCs would be able to get downstairs anyway without a great degree of cunning Wink.

I may be wrong and spor will correct me, but amongst other things on the server, there are changes currently running to establish aeon as a forgotten realms server as opposed to the original server.

The trinity v. triad may be a result of this and is part of a larger ongoing tidying up process.

Aeon is going to be growing and adapting and bearing fruit as we go, so there maybe inconsistancies here and there, hopefully we can roll with it in good humour and make of it what we can IC.

Trinity, vs Triad is deliberate due to how the polulance discusses or views things. I do agree that the Triad has connatations that are negative in current culture and will potentially remove that reference iif it is a real sticking point. The Server as a whole is moving towards a FR feel as it had a custom setting prior to this release.

These little quirks may disappear or stay, depending on impact to experience, though thanks for pointing it out.

Triad is a common word, a group of three. Three, on the otherhand, is a mobilephone company and to avoid costly legal action we should avoid using it.

Trinity is too closely associated to another religion to be useful. But then again, perhaps it better belongs here in a fantasy world and I would recommend it employed less frequently in the real world. I will PM the Pope. Brace for a flood of Catholic registrations and their dreary sigs quoting Psalms.

It's a movie not a religion, a triad even. The religion reference (before Neo's gfriend commandeered it) is prolly better labelled a (schizophrenic) triumvirate than a trinity. The Father is the Alabama man, the one who stomps abouts shouting who's your daddy while raping and beating. The Son is the whiney, petty, jealous, ADHD attention whore and the Holy Ghost is the mum - lyin and walkin into doors, stupid and pathetically spinning the bullshit of the other two "it was only a test hehe, he dint mean it hehe - you know how he gets hehe", "he loves you, I know he does... it's just...his way hehehe", "um... hey look! ew FAGGOTS!".

Happy to help.
