Cutty Sark? Fall of Clyde? Termopylae? Termopylae sounds good :3

News in the Neath: Noted citizen of Fallen London, Abraham Bounty, has acquired six hundred and sixty six souls. Additionally rumour has it that the lion's share of those souls was from a theft of The Brass Embasy itself. We are quite certain that this portents nothing ominous for him. Well, nothing unusually ominous anyway.

The beauty of this game is that it acts as a framework to let you tell your own stories, rather than simply dictating a story to you. An official response would take some of the fun out of the process, wouldn't it.

Also, I'm reasonably certain they can't be arsed.

Water Leaper is a very fitting name for a Swift Zee-Clipper I agree, and kudos for basing it on mythology which is one of my fav subjects

I may be wrong, I don't have much experience with welsh words, but is it pronounced Lam-heen e der?

Ll = kh/ch (like in Scottish "loch" or German "Achtung")
W = oo (like in "doom", not like in "door")
Y = like the second a in "catacomb" (meaning it's almost not there)


So, "Llamhigyn Y Dwr" should be something like "Kha-miggan-a-Door"

One of the Failbetter team is Welsh, and a couple of the rest of us lived in Wales for a number of years, so I can't resist sticking my oar in.

The welsh 'w' vowel is usually pronouced like the short 'oo' in 'book', rather than the long 'oo' in 'doom'.

'Ll' isn't pronounced like the Scottish 'ch'. I'm not aware of any equivalent, or any easy way to render it in text. But you make the sound be putting the front part of the top of your tongue against the roof of your mouth and blowing air either side of it. Have a bucket ready. And face away from people.

Certain Welsh consonants should only be attempted by trained experts.

(Blowing air either side of it? O_o) I have no notion of Welsh language, but I went to Dublin once. Mind - still blown.

Welsh - looks interesting, sounds lovely, but the disconnect between the two baffles me.

Absolutely, I tried to go for the next best thing to explain it ;-)
