    I'm so glad I've managed to convince you that the Fel family is worthy of the admiration given when you use the family name.

    Pretty well, Mitth. How about yourself?

    To tell the truth not so well. I don't know what happened but for the past three days I've been sicker then a dog after eating a bag of chocolate, yup that about sums up the feeling and condition.

    Have any big plans with the convert besides hiding your Thrawn?

    Senate News Today and Yesterday:

    "The Senate is currently discussing having a spoiler thread, similar to the one in the Literature boards, and combining all spoilers into that. We're hoping that discussion can be generated in the EUC in a manner not the same as on the Lit boards so that people on the EUC have a place to discuss the books before the spoiler period is over without the chance of spoiling those who don't want to be spoiled. This would also be used to build community as you'd interact with more people other than just those of your fanclub when the new books come out. Please notify your senator if you have anything to add to the discussion, or come to the Senate and post your opinion there. We're looking for ways to differentiate our thread from the Lit thread. Thank you."

    Main headliner today is NEILA'S BACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    *Gives Neila a big ole' bear hug*[:D] Welcome back! How have you been? Where've you been? It's great to see you again.:D

    Ahoy, my blue skinned brethren!

    I was just recently elected Chancellor in the EUS, and I'm looking for ways at getting user involvement increased. I'd really love to hear your opinion about what you guys think. Feel free to PM me/post any ideas you have, any opinions, or anything you'd like to see the Senate do this term. My PM box is open for anything you guys would like to say/see enacted.

    Thanks!

    I've noticed there hasn't been much posting activity here in awhile, but I figured I'd ask here anyway.

    I'm currently (trying) to piece together a fanfic story, and the main character is a Chiss. I'm a bit confused about the naming system for Chiss however, and I was hoping one of you could help out. :) I understand to concept of how the abbreviated name works, but does the full name name (ie. Mitth'raw'nuruodo) have something to do with the ruling family? And does EVERY Chiss have a long fancy name, or only members of ruling familys or.... I'm confused. 8-}

    I tried checking out Wookiepedia, but it has SO much information it's overwhelming. [face_hypnotized] Thank you so much, and I hope I'm not being a bother!

    Hello new person! :)

    The end section of the name(in Thrawn's case, 'nuruodo') is the ruling family's name. Again in Thrawn's case, that would be House Nuruodo.

    I'm not sure if every Chiss has a long name, but it seems the majority of them do.

    I hope this helps you! Good luck with the story, I'd like to read it! :)

    Thrawn is fully correct.

    If I remember correctly, all chiss have a long name but not all belong to a ruling family house, as thrawn and his brother didn't before joining house nuruodo. In joining the house they changed their last portion of their name from whatever comon nonruling family name to nuruodo.

    I hope that helps and please let us know when you publish your fanfic, I know we'll look forward to reading it!

    Alas, there's not enough fanfic with Chiss. Everything's either Jedi or Mandalorians, it seems.

    Yup, personally I don't understand why there aren't more stories dealing with our at least equally interesting (if not more so) Chiss, or even the other races.

    Right . . . time to resuscitate this thread, I reckon.

    During my latest re-read of Outbound Flight, I realised something curious: the Chiss seem to use miles as their primary middle-distance unit. Thrawn tells Car'das that 10,000 visvia is rougly equivalent to 16,000 km. If you run the maths, that comes out as visvia:km being about 1.6:1 - the same ratio as miles:km.

    Anybody else noticed this, or am I being particularly geeky?

    Yeah, I'd noticed that too, but subsequently forgot about it. Just another brick in the wall supporting my "Earth is in the Unknown Regions" theory... :D ;)
