Group Renaming

Post by Alpha Cygni on Sun Nov 04, 2012 4:13 am

First topic message reminder :

Just a quick suggestion, exactly what it says on the tin - I think some groups should be renamed. For now, there are only two.

Metahumans -> Augments

Not all cyborgs, robots, or bioengineered creatures are even technically human, or of human origin. The name doesn't make sense all the time, and Augments should account for the nonhumans.

Demons -> Infernals

This one is just for better symmetry with Celestials. The words pair up better.

Humanity is gone. Only the specks are left. The surviving pure humans, if any, are either being left for dead or are turning more into machines. BAM! Awesome plot!

...

Carry on.

I have to, on principle, disagree with the Megatron as a celestial angle. He'd fit in with a lot of the other Metahumans, in that the only reason they're in that group is because they're vaguely humanoid in shape. If we changed the name, all the better.

If Celestial changed to mean anything and everything from outside of the planet regardless of whether or not they fit into another group, it messes up the system we have now quite significantly, and we'd have to shift quite a few of the current Ancients, Demons, and some Metahumans out of their groups into the Celestial group, causing quite an imbalance.

Oh, wait. Point taken - Cybertronians and the like have more emphasis on the robot aspect than the alien aspect, really. Unfortunately, I can't think of a better term than Augments that encompasses fully mechanical beings on top of everything.

The point of not binding Celestial/Infernal to morality still stands, though. That was what I was emphasizing.
