    I'm something of a creative writer and I'd really love to write something on my new fave furballs. Ofc I want it to be as accurate as possible so I'm reading lore stuff etc. I'm wondering if Carbine have any conventions in mind as far as racial names are concerned, specifically for the Chua?

    Only name we've seen so far is Mondo Zax - though i think there were screen shots from Deradune that might have some named Chua in them...

    Your best bet is probably to message Chad Moore on twitter. He is the Lead Narrative Designer at Carbine.

    @Pappylicious

    WildStar Roleplay would be another resource for you. I am not familiar with the site, but it seems like a place to check. Let us know if you find out anything.

    Oke seriously are you guys delibarately trying to hurt my feelings?

    Where is the ''try ask Extatica about it?''......:cry:
    Now here comes (guess to the surprise of some people above), a few names that are NOT under NDA :up:

    Mondo Zax
    Engineer Giba Corti
    Furlo Gre
    Hott
    Researcher Zeelo

    Hope this helps you a bit, these are all the names that are currently known for the Chua (or atleast to my Chua knowledge).

    I thought you would be otherwise occupied, on Z-Lab attending your Chua shrine, making preparations for CB4.

    Thankyou to all of you.

    Tribe - I'm going to take your advice and message Chad Moore on Twitter. I'll link to this thread and see if he is willing and able to offer a couple of pointers.

    Extatica - I think I :inlove: you! Seriously, awesome stuff, that's a massive help. What's your thoughts on female Chua names, if you have any?

    Once again, massive thanks to you all. I love this community!

    Well...Chua and females......you know it's a huge debate weither they have females, or not, or if only the Chua's know the difference?

    So...I have no idea if they have more feminine names or not...

    I'm waiting on a WSW about Chua females :p But if I ever get my hands on a Chua female name that's not under NDA i'll pass it trough right away :up:

    Aren't you guys forgetting Finkle Blurg? ;)

    A little guidance on Chua naming.

    1.) Keep the names short...neither first or last should be more than two syllables.
    2.) My personal preference is mixing up the syllable count...have one for either first or last, and then the two for the other.
    3.) In terms of guidance about spelling - nothing hard and fast, but I try to create names that have both humor and a certain kinetic energy. These guys are bouncing around all the time, getting into trouble. I like to give them names that reflect that.
    4.) In terms of female Chua - are there female Chua? Are there even male Chua? Ah, the mysteries of Nexus...

    I'll have to catalog these names for future reference. They may help me identify targets in my chua hunt...

    Keep in mind first and last names only work outside the game as only one word names will be allowed in-game as of last announcement. :p

    From those sounds of it my internet handle fits pretty well, although I'll have to think about a last name.

    aww semi sad. Nicodemus doesn't seem to fit at all. Maybe Nico? My RP side and my naming side of the brain are at war now... Time to burn something down.
