I have no idea if Jalak Dador is historically accurate, or if it's just a joke that went wildly out of control, and now I HAVE to know.

RAWA signal?

I never heard of a "war shroom" in Teledahn.

The name Jalak Dador came up because during Rehearsal that is the name that appeared in the age list when you submitted a ticket through the Support. The name got out into the general public that way, but by the time the age went live all information in game about the age just referred to it as Jalak.
I remember 'Jalak Dador" (= Did you lock the door?) being discussed in Rehearsal. Cyan has always had a sense of humour. The War 'Shroom (Washroom) is another wordplay that people may or may not have come across.

I assumed that was a play on "War Room" actually.
Then try saying it. :)

Does this do (for technical reasons, I can't give a link to the original source)?

The name of the Age is "Jalak". "Jalak Dador" is a play on the name by certain DRC members, just as they tend to call the "Tokotah" the "Dakotah" because of the similarity of the sounds in English.

Regarding the "state"...

There are actually two of them :) (North and South), though the spelling is slightly different from the D'ninglish--without an "h" (Dakota).

Just sayin'... since it might matter to the folks who live there! :wink:

There's a building called the Dakota, in New York... fairly famous building. Lots of celebs have lived there.

And yes, there's a MOULa player named Dakotah... somewhere. Unless she's abandoned us for SL...?

Last I heard, she had abandoned SL for RL because things were going so great for her and her family.
But, not before she had left her mark on the community there. :)

Back in 2003/2004, during the closed beta and in the offline CD Uru Ages Beyond Myst the Dakotah was used. Somewhat later it has been changed to Tokotah. In the early days of the open beta it was possible to move the offline avatar to the online open beta (and thus the progress made in the game). This possibility was quite soon stopped because of technical problems, but later it was enabled on a few UU shards. So I exported and imported a few times my avatar - as a result some things get mixed, I still have a TPOTS installation, where in my Nexus there are separate city links for "Tokotah Alley" and "Dakotah Alley"..

Yes, this kind of thing happened all the time. It's a side affect of having artists and others who don't speak D'ni working on the projects. :)

Jalak was the Age's D'ni name.
"Jalak Dador" was Ryan Miller's* play on it.

Tokotah - literally means "place of the locked door(s)"
"Dakotah" - Steve Ogden's* play on it
I don't remember "Takotah" being used, but if it was, it was a simple typo, being closer to "Dakotah", the name the artists used for it.

"War Shroom" - Douglas Sharper's play on "War Room".

Tolesa - literally, "sealed place" (i.e. Vault)

Shorah,

RAWA

* attributions should be taken with a grain of salt. It's been a long time, and my memory isn't what it once was. These are the first people I remember using the altered place names, but they may or may not be the ones who originally came up with the alterations.

Rawa, you are now my favourite person ever.

Edit: Just looked up 'to seal' in the D'ni dictionary, and it gives 'lahsah'. Does 'lahsah' have a different, but similar, meaning?

I think when you combine "To" (place) with "lahsah" (seal) to get Tolahsah (sealed place) and then anglicize it, you'd get Tolesa.
But, I'm not a D'ni linguist.
