Vole

Exclusively Abyss vs. Non-Abyss, if I remember correctly. Where does the Empire use it for Avernum?

Also, this needs to be a real article.

Darkling

Is this a derogatory term? I'm not sure it would seem derogatory to people who gleefully contract with demons for the purpose of killing other people. And it certainly sounds less offensive than other hate language in the games, which are all animalizing. (Troglo is the exception, as it's specifically labelled as derogatory.) -- Slarty 21:35, 11 January 2008 (PST)

If they don't like to be called that, then that is the defining quality of a derogatory term - and we can't assume that they identify themselves with darkness even if they identify with evil. Unfortunately our sources are extremely limited since encounters with them are almost exclusively hostile... do we ever see written records of what they consider themselves to be? -- Arancaytar | Send Reply! --- That is not dead which can eternal lie... 01:29, 14 January 2008 (PST)
