Poll: Thalassa or Thallasa?

Post by LoZompatore » Sat May 29, 2010 9:24 pm

The name decided so far for the setting is "Thalassa" (which as you know means "sea" in ancient greek language) but a few days ago Asthagon - maybe involuntarily - introduced a "Thallasa" in one of her posts.

Well, I have to say that I like this "suggested" new version for the name of the planet. It would help to found more easily the setting with a web research. Here you are a quick poll (ending before 15 June) to help choosing the new name.

That was just a random typo. I wasn't trying to introduce a new spelling. :oops:

I have to say that I prefer Thalassa - it rolls off the tongue more naturally IMO: thal-ASS-ah

Whereas Thallasa would sound (to me) like: THALL-az-ah

Anyhow, my $0.02. I'll get back to writing what happened in my adventure....
