Welcome to Librarium Online!
Okay I need to come up for some fluff behind my army. and possibly a name from my shas'o.
Can anyone explain exactly how the tau naming system works?
I'm having my fluff based on a risk taking strike force but will need to add more backbone.
So on the naming topic...
How a Tau receives his name is explained in the Codex itself, but basically it starts with his rank followed by his home sept, then followed by words which are attributes rather than names as such. So Shas'O Vior'la Shovah Kais Mont'yr is a Fire Caste Warrior of the highest rank, from the sept of Vior'la, with the names farsighted, skillful and blooded.
There are several Tau lexicons available:
Tau Lexicon - Lexicanum
Tau Online - Tau Lexicon
The Definitive Tau Xenolexicon (this is the biggest listing)
"Tau Commandment #226: Participants who use Velocity Trackers in the Tau Clay Pigeon Tournament will be disqualified"
sounds like a winner to me. the fluff for Tau can be difficult on the count of they're pretty complicated to understand for some. but its pretty easy once u do enough research.
There are three kinds of people in this world, those who can count and those who cannot.
