Question If the town had a name of your choosing, what would it be?

"Satan's Sphincter"... eh? Like as in the dungeons are stan's bowels and you know. sphincter. lol


It just occured to me while playing Caves of Qud that the town in Angband didn't have a name to my knowledge. Also, go play Caves of Qud. I feel like it's got a very *band-ish feel to it. Plus it's probably the only Roguelike I've ever enjoyed more than Angband. It had to happen someday.

If someone knows how to translate that into Elvish, chances are that it will sound extremely cool.

Pretty sure the town is called Angband?
Wikipedia sez:
Quote:
Angband is a dungeon-crawling roguelike computer game derived from Umoria. It is based on the writings of J. R. R. Tolkien, in which Angband is the fortress of Morgoth. The current version of Angband is available for all major operating systems, including Unix, Windows, Mac OS X, and Android.

If you assume that the game takes place during the Seige of Angband, then Barad Eithel would seem to be the main town-ish location. Along with many many exceedingly anachronistic elements, the place is also a bit further away than a convenient stairway though.

Then the underground dungeon levels are actually the fortress Angband and we're invading it? I'm not quite sure now. Morgoth survived way after Angband, though.

I have only read the Hobbit, and I found the movies absurdly long and boring and fell asleep watching all 3, so I actually know most of my Tolkein lore from games like Angband and just reading angband forums and such. So I'm not sure much about what Angband is, since it seems to never be mentioned outside of this game.

edit: Oh! and I saw the cartoon version of the Hobbit when I was a kid. I'm sure waaay better than that 10 hour monstrosity they put together recently. That book wasn't very long.

I imagine you could use this thing to figure out the Quenya word for 'butt' and then just sub Morgoth for Satan and you'd have yourself a town name.

Having driven the wastelands of northern Nevada several times, I always thought the isolated dust-soaked towns along I-80 between Reno and Salt Lake City would be like the adventurer's ouptost in Angband. So my vote would be Battle Mountain. "The Armpit of America" is not too far from Satan's Sphincter...

But there's more: half of the letters in the Elvish alphabet look like butts. Coincidence?
