HrothgarEdit

The name reminds me about Hrak'kar, leader of the tuskarr. Would be cool if we saw some leader figure soon. --SFSig-2009 07:43, 17 June 2009 (UTC)

Personally I think of either Hroðgar (also known as Hrothgar) from Beowulf, or the dwarven king in the Inheritance Trilogy Cycle. -Archaeic (talk) 15:34, 17 June 2009 (UTC)
More likely the former, given their propensity for drawing from Norse mythology in this expansion. -- Dark T Zeratul (talk) 17:47, 17 June 2009 (UTC)

Tuskar Tribe Name Edit

The dead Tuskar are named "Slain Tualiq Villager". Can we assume that "Tualiq" was the name of their encampment/village?

That would be a good assumption. User:Coobra/Sig4 04:06, 27 June 2009 (UTC)

Island Edit

How can this be "a former tuskarr village located on an island" and an island at the same time? Did the village take up 100% of the island's territory? Rolandius Paladin (talk - contr) 02:56, 28 June 2009 (UTC)

The zone is also called Hrothgar's Landing. --User:Gourra/Sig2 09:31, 28 June 2009 (UTC)
The zone is named from the island, since in "normal times" it's the only point of interest there.
And judging by the houses/buidlgins, yes the village was 100% of the island.

The article should convey that. Saying Hrothgar's Landing is just a village on some island doesn't really tell you it is also the name of the island. Rolandius Paladin (talk - contr) 02:46, 29 June 2009 (UTC)

HrothgarEdit

Found this on the Internet. On another note, "Drottin" is strikingly similar to the Swedish word drottning, which means "queen" in my language.

<...>Now it is curious to note that this Hengest must have been a contemporary of his famous namesake. In Beowulf, the Danish king Hrothgar is represented as a very old man and as having reigned for a very long period. The time to which the poem refers is the first quarter of the sixth century. Healfdene, Hrothgar's father, may therefore have been reigning before the middle of the fifth century.<...>
<...>In Beowulf we hear a good deal of a certain family of Danish kings, the most important members of which seem to have been Healfdene (Halfdan), his son Hrothgar (Hroarr) <...>

So, you found that it is a likely reference to Beowulf? Like was guessed in the first section of this page?--SWM2448 21:51, 29 June 2009 (UTC)
