If it doesn't fit anywhere else, it belongs here. Also, come here if you just need to get hammered.

Change the 3rd tier bows title for humans

Right now it reads "Foo the Markshuman". Markshuman is just about the stupidest fucking word I have ever seen. Please change it to the actual, real people word, marksman, or some gender-neutral version if that's a thing you really care about.

Re: Change the 3rd tier bows title for humans

Found this on Wiktionary (so take it with a grain of salt) about the suffix "-man": To include men and women, either the suffix -person is used, or a gender-inclusive synonym, for example police officer instead of policeman.

So to make it gender-neutral it would be marksperson.

Re: Change the 3rd tier bows title for humans

There's no species for which the title doesn't look completely stupid, honestly. Same for Merry X. Can't say I find markshuman particularly worse than marksorc or markscentaur or marksmerfolk or marksminotaur or

Re: Change the 3rd tier bows title for humans

I am fine with marksperson, because it doesn't sound like a visiting martian came up with it.

e: Other suggestions, that aren't as fucking lunatic as "markshuman":

Yes, but the English language already has a word for "a human what is good at shooting arrows" that begins with the prefix "Mark-". It is "Marksman". There is not an equivalent word for any other species, because those don't exist, and can get away with looking dumb, because they are made up to fill a void. "Markshuman" is a garbage word that has been made up for absolutely no good reason at all.

I actually don't mind it at all, feels in line with other races' titles. Why should humans be special? That would be racist.

Open your eyes people! One percent of spriggan necromancers have hold ten percent of the world's special skill title cases! This isn't about handouts, it's about justice for the common man!

Re: Change the 3rd tier bows title for humans

Could go with Master Archer as natural progression. It even exists in the game already. (Yes, elves would lose their special status.)

That said, I find Marksfoo quite amusing and would be happy to stick with it. Perhaps it could be made a bit smoother like Marktopode, Markiggan, etc.

Eh, markshuman is worse...

By the way:

superlative adjective: stupidest


In fact, reading around it sounds like more stupid and most stupid are actually incorrect, although I have only done about 1 minute of google research on the subject, so I can't promise any of that is true.

I mean, judging by how often the Tavern wants to discuss it, basically everyone. So much.

FWIW, I find "Markshuman" kind of dumb and charming and don't mind it, sorry Arrhy.

Hey, no hate, I just thought you'd be interested to learn it. If english isn't your first language then... nice job learning it, because I couldn't tell.
