I'm the only person on the planet annoyed by Khan's name.

Really.

'Khan Noonien Singh'. He's from India. Singh is Punjabi for 'Lion', and indicates he was born to Sikh parents. Therefore his name should be Khan Singh Noonien. Singh is always a middle name, never anywhere else. He could introduce himself as Khan Singh, or Khan Noonien, as some Sikhs only use thier middle name, and some only use their family name, but Khan Noonien Singh? No. That's wrong.

And don't even get me started on 'Khan'. That's a surname, not a first name, and it's a Muslim one too. And in case you didn't notice, Muslims and Sikhs don't have much of a history involving cordial relations.

Of course, 'Khan' could be a title, as in that used by the Mongol people. Then his name would be Noonien Singh, and that would make sense. However, if used properly, Khan goes at the end of your name, so it should be Noonien Singh Khan.

Seriously, my first post in months and I go off on a rant about something no-one else cares about.  Tongue

Since he's never actually given the rest of you a name, it's mostly academic anyway.

That's because I hate the name, but can't think of a better one.

Brand shrugs at the observations regarding the sprites. "Doubtless we'll be sent after the little bastards at some point." He gazes into the middle distance for a moment, then adds "Whatever. Is this done with? I'm hungry. Fire needs fuel to burn bright."

Having seen it work once already, Brand prepares another blast of sorcerous power for the vile aquatic creature should it rear its head again.

Well, they sort of are doing print runs, but these days it's mostly via kickstarter and so far it's mostly been the anniversary oWoD re-printings.

Yeah, if you spend 200-300 bucks for the privilege. And no, that's not an exaggeration.

"Disruption is a priority. Anything to slow our pursuers down or force them to reassess their priorities. However, creating a reputation at this stage may be a poor idea. Governments typically enjoy having excuses that allow them to destroy threats or embarrassments, and we are likely to be both. We should secure our egress before all other priorities."

The golem chimes in. "I agree. The fear response of organic beings is an important survival mechanism. However, like any instinctual response, it should be tempered with control."

The word 'intellect' seems to echo around the room as the golem stares at Otto with a blank, empty smile...
