0.7.2 Win x64: %bn[unhandled] in biography

Post by pango » Mon Jan 07, 2019 6:19 pm

Appeared in a stream I'm watching, it seems to be a random wizard name (Breton Name?):

%rn used in N0B20Y05 looks similar (Redguard name?)

Probably Ruler Name.

You're probably right; If %rt is Regent Title, that may very well be Regent Name.

So the link with %bn may not be that obvious

For %rn we still have the problem where some research needs to be done on what names classic uses. Are they random or predictable, based on region, use specific region rulers Queen Morgiah or whatever, or location regent?

As for %bn Breton name seems plausible, but since this macro only seems to be used in the char bio texts maybe it's bio name... so just a random name?

I can implement these macros as soon as we know what they should do. :)
