Burvix 'Caster
« on: April 26, 2003, 09:38:56 am »

Shouldn't this be called the Druuge 'caster? It's not of Burvixese design. Common sense dictates that the Druuge wouldn't be able to put another species 'caster down on their moon to exterminate them unless it was taken by stealth or force, neither of which the Druuge are known for. On the planet you can clearly see that the caster is red. The Druuge paint everything red and love the color, though why it's green in the artifact screen is beyond me. Finally, I'm sure there is at least one quote from the game confirming that the 'Caster was in fact built by the Druuge. To me, this is like calling the blue one a "Spathi 'Caster". In other words, dead wrong.

Technically, yeah, you're correct.  I'd say it's probably namer Burvix caster in case you happened upon it without actually buying the information.

Maybe it's short for 'Burvixese Demise Caster'

The 'caster itself IS green.  Red is just the color of standard-issue Crimson Corporation bubble-wrap, used to protect the 'caster from the dangers of space.  Duh. Roll Eyes  Also, the fact that it's called "Burvix Caster" is just a coincidence.  It has nothing to do with the Burvixese.  It's an acronym used in Crimson Corporation product catalogs - B.U.R.V.I.X. stands for "Bwahahah! Unprepared Race's Veritable and Imminent Xtermination".

Damn, you people apparently have trouble figuring out the most basic stuff. Roll Eyes

Your logic would dictate that an object should be named after its creator.  If this is the case, other artefacts deserve a name change as well.  The Utwig Bomb should be called the Precursor Bomb...  The Burvixese were the ones using the caster, so why shouldn't it be in there name?  Maybe I'm just silly, but your logic seems to escape me.

Well, I think what you meant was, "The items are named after the race the items are most strongly associated with."

Given that the Burvix Caster is most strongly associated with the needless demise of a sentient and peaceful race, rather than the jerks who plotted the whole thing up. And the Utwig bomb is most strongly associated with the tight-fisted mopes that intend to use it for geno-suicide.

Personally, I still want the option to rename the Utwig bomb into the 'Spathi bomb'. *narrows eyes*

Actually, I do agree that the Utwig bomb should be called the Precursor bomb. It just slipped my mind before. I would like to add that the Burvix never used that caster, the Druuge put it on their moon and activated it.

VileRancour: LOL! I see a lot of funny crap around these forums but that was so good that it deserves recognition.

Yeah, fill your ship full of high efficiency fuel tanks and give yourself just enough fuel to make it to the Druuge homeword (you only need 15 if you have the portal spawner). Trade the caster in on all the fuel your ship will hold (this ends up being about 1600 units). Go back to your starbase and sell it for 20 RU a unit).

The Druuge leader's reaction after you do the thing mentioned above is priceless.
