Isle of Dawn Question

Postby Mortis » Mon Apr 17, 2017 11:05 am

Is there a (canon) term for a person from the Isle of Dawn (regardless of nationality)?

I.E. Dawner, Dawnite, Dawnian etc.

I don't think there's an official term for that. I tend to call them Dawnlanders.

Supplementary question:

And people from Redstone are?

According to Sturm's Atlas of the Isle of Dawn (Threshold #11), the Dunael call themselves Ruagallans - which I believe is taken from / based on Simone Neri's article "Real World Inspiration for the Isle of Dawn" on the Vaults.

But do the Thyatian settlers call themselves anything other than Thyatian and do they refer to the Dunael as Dunael, Ruagallans, or something else.

I'm probably over complicating things! All I'm doing is the translation of the Sword of Destiny. And it concerns the Isle of Dawn (among other places).

I.E. "According to the Albigesi the sword was forged by the great bard Dallbard, and whoever wields can aspire to unite and rule the Isle of Dawn." and "also called Excalibur by the Thyatians and the Redstoniani of the Isle of Dawn."

Stoners? :lol:

Okay, how about Redstonians?

AFAIK all of these are non-canonical terms.

Guess I'll stick with them. Redstonian looks good - its what Marco used albeit in Italian.

<edit> I ended up using 'Dunael' and 'Redstonian' in the sword's entry - which is now complete.

You might take a look at this: http://www.pandius.com/dunael.html
(Which suggests "Danoia")
