Not sure if this qualifies, but Humakt could be an onomatopoeia for the sound a sword makes.

Huuuu as it swishes through air.

MAKT when it hits.

There's also (Em)Issaries, and Subere (Or Erebus backwards)

Damn, I can't believe I never even saw any of these. Not in a million years.

I can only assume that the word for knife is "Snikt", then. Bub.


EDIT: I guess the "Hu" could also be a reference to Bronze, ie. Hu-metal - but that's less of a pun and more circling back into worldbuilding.

I thought it was a combination of "to hew" meaning "to chop", and the Germanic word "macht" or "to make", thus hew-macht, meaning the one who makes chopping.  That's my 2 cents.

OMG!

There was a thread somewhere where we came up with who and what the Zaxs were. Could probably tie in with the current migratory animal thread ;)

Mastakos, Orlanth's charioteer, is a hungry fellow from a distant land. No matter how much he's eaten, he's always asking for more tacos.

"Mas tacos!"

No way, you have to making that one up. Then again...

I don't know if that one was intentional, but it wouldn't surprise me in the least if it was.

Also, another one I don't know how intentional it was (though I suspect intent):

Show some respect for Eiritha. R. E. S. P. E. C. T.

Any crew that would come up with the Hayward Onion are quite capable of anything I suppose.
And any excuse to play Aritha is fine by me (turning uppppppppp volume, leaning back and hitting play...."🎼What you want, baby I got it"... ahh!)

When I played RQ with Chaosium playtesters like Al Dewey and Ken Kaufer way back when, I remember the group singing “Respect” every time we met an Eiritha priestess, so I think that one may be legit.
