Wich Doctrine goes with who??
« on: December 26, 2005, 10:24:50 pm »

OK now... wich doctrine goes with wich type of Ur-Quan??

Because I always thought that the "Eternal Doctrine" was that of the Khor-Ah and the "Path of Now And Forever" the one of the Kher-Za, however, I'm translating the game and I found that in the Khor-Ah text files, the Khor-Ah refer to their path as the "Path of Now And Forever".

If you need proof:
Quote
No, it is not. There is more you must hear.
When the war was over, the great Kohr-Ah rose from our ranks
and declared the Path of Now and Forever. We would cleanse the galaxy.
No one would ever threaten the Ur-Quan this way again.

There are more examples of this...

Now, can anybody clear this please?

As I understand it, the two Ur-Quan types both
follow The Path Of Now and Forever.
This docterine basically states that the two sub-species
will travel around, knocking other aliens out of
compitition. Then, when the two sub-races meet,
they fight for domination. I think I'm summerizing a bit
too much.

Where the races differ is in how they go about securing
their place in the cosmos. The green guys enslave other
races, the black guys kill everyone. Both are doing
it for similar reasons, the continuing existance of
the Ur-Quan race. They just handle the details differently.

Both sides refer to THEIR doctrine as the Path of Now and Forever. It's possible that this is because it translates from a more cool/dignified/correct sounding phrase in the Ur-Quan language.
The Kohr-Ah never call the Kzer-Za path anything so far as I know; but the Kzer-Za call the Kohr-Ah path the Eternal Doctrine.

I'm quite sure the Kohr-Ah follow "The Path of Now and Forever" and the Kzer-Za follow the "Eternal Doctrine".

And I'm absolutely sure that Death999 is correct.  This has been posted on the PONAF message boards before, as well as on the old TW forums (twice).  It might have also been mentioned here, but I'm too lazy to search.

Thanks guys, that was helpful. As I said, I'm working in a translation and that got me pretty confused ^^

I'm not sure if i noticed it correctly, but i think that Ur-Quan and Melnomore have oposite names for doctrines. Not sure, though.

no, I meant that they tell you differently about UrQuan doctrines. Ur-quan tell you that Khor-Ah have "Now anfd Forever" doctrine and Melnomore tell you that it's Khzer-Za's doctrine. or something like that. Cheesy

Oh, sorry, misunderstood you.

Thanks for clarifying this.

Thought you may have disremembered the other Ur-Quans name....

Well,
 Happy New Year then!
