OK so the thing is naming the new map Xanadu and not following any historical or mythological record is in my mind a blasphemous and slanderous use of it. Its also sad that a number of peoples only reference to Xanadu is a 80's pop culture show gone horribly wrong. I didnt see anything during the testing that led me to believe that there was anything there that would amount to using the name Xanadu. Yes its a huge map, and im not trying to take anything away from that. But a huge landmass alone doesnt really evoke any sense of Xanadu. So I would propose a naming contest to rename the new server to something more appropriate and """original""" Some basic rules #1 Name Submissions must be original and not in current or historical / mythological records, archives. ok ok ok so we need a few more #2 No player names or variants on them #3 No Movie/Song/Theatre Names or variants on them It just needs to be original and or that possibly has some WURM connotations. Have the devs pick 20 or so from the submission list (to weed out the crazy) and or throw a poll out on it - or just whatever everyone wants to do and have the name chosen from that list. It just is rather annoying that a name such as Xanadu was chosen without any obvious reference, so why not do a rename and let the players name it.
Not sure how many followed the news announcement about a new map coming down the pipe called Xanadu but I cant help but speculate a bit. Now for those that are not familiar with Xanadu Ill give a very quick historical reference on it and provide sort of a quick reference guide in the form of a RUSH song also entitled Xanadu. Marco Polo was believed to have visited Xanadu and gave a number of descriptions concerning it [media]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=16MpCza27HI&feature=player_detailpage "And when you have ridden three days from the city last mentioned ( modern Beijing), between north-east and north, you come to a city called Chandu, which was built by the Khan now reigning. There is at this place a very fine marble Palace, the rooms of which are all gilt and painted with figures of men and beasts and birds, and with a variety of trees and flowers, all executed with such exquisite art that you regard them with delight and astonishment. Round this Palace a wall is built, inclosing a compass of 16 miles, and inside the Park there are fountains and rivers and brooks, and beautiful meadows, with all kinds of wild animals (excluding such as are of ferocious nature), which the Emperor has procured and placed there to supply food for his gerfalcons and hawks," Marco Polo also mentioned a large portable palace made of gilded and lacquered cane or bamboo which could be taken apart quickly and moved from place to place. "The Lord abides at this Park of his, dwelling sometimes in the Marble Palace and sometimes in the Cane Palace for three months of the year, to wit, June, July, and August; preferring this residence because it is by no means hot; in fact it is a very cool place. When the 28th day of the Moon of August arrives he takes his departure, and the Cane Palace is taken to pieces." Now that the history and descriptions are out there time for some rampant speculation on my part. Tich said to think big, Johan says its possibly the biggest thing ever put out by WURM - So given the above Are we talking about Rivers or streams? Lands of Ice?
