Talk:Olgai Tribe

From Encyclopedia Ermariana
Jump to: navigation, search

EXTREMELY IMPORTANT. The Olgai Tribe MUST be added! The omission is fairly glaring, as better than half of all information we have found about, and have ascribed to, the Vahnatai in general has been gleaned through observation of the Olgai Tribe.

Until this article is filled in, and a consensus can be reached on what to remove from the Vahnatai in general in the Olgai Tribe's favor, let it serve as a list of articles which we may want to revisit with this in mind.

(Note that I have included articles utilizing the phrase Vahnatai retribution, which seems to be a stock phrase to refer to an event which I, not having played A4, remain ignorant - but which still seems to generalize onto the Vahnatai in general an almost absurdly specific event; rather like calling the conquests of Clive in specific the 'European aggression in India'.)

Yeah, we can work on this. --Drakey
The phrase Vahnatai Retribution is my doing. We needed a term to refer to the A4 attacks by Rentar-Ihrno. It is not intended to generalize to all Vahnatai any more than, say, First Slith War is intended to generalize to all sliths. It was a war with a group of sliths. The retribution was carried out by a group of vahnatai. For a human-centric and Exile-centric encyclopedia, such a short phrase is adequately distinctive, and preferable to something longer and clumsier, I think. --Slarty 09:28, 30 March 2006 (CST)
