    Get out your tau codex...

    Turn to page 57, the notes on tau language.

    Look down the second column of words.

    About 3/4 of the way down you will see Ukos

    It means spoon.

    WHY?

    Well if you read the story on the left side it shows a leter that is written and it shows a few words from her experiance in the tau empire, things she had to use or say.

    Hehehe Dal'yth Tau are cool. My Commander is named, Shas'O Dal'yth Kais Shi

    This thread just gave me the idea for my commander's name.

    Shas'o Tau Gue'la Kauyon

    Commander Tau (Are you supposed to have the sept name there?) Human Hunter. It really shows off my hate for the damned imperium (picked it up while playing chaos)

    Nope, unforseen spoons all the way

    Onion, the second part of the name (Tau in your case) tells you where they are from, so yours is from the homeworld.

    ShaselMudd, to strive for skillful water mirror? Eh?

    N E way, you forgot the sept

    Well Inciner8or you have to remember the Por J'Kaara is my worlds name. Thats my sept where he was born and raised, a created world on the fringes of the Tau empire. The fluff for my planet is its mainly made of renowned diplomats who go out and try to expand the Tau empire and they take along troops to enforce the Taus claims of ownership. Water Mirror Water for the diplomat caste and water because its like a mirror and the planet is primarily a water mass. There is more fluff but I am still working on it. ANd then the last part is his name the continuous quest to strive to be the best or skilful. Kais is always working to be a better soldier and leader. And to bring more worlds under the sway of the Tau empire for the Greater Good. Thats why its the way it is.

    Fair enough, i was just literally translating from the words in the book...

    And no, spoons are much greater than cheese. ANd don't start a flame war over spoons and cheese. Spoons are clearly better.

    Well... unfortunately I don't think I can compete on the Spoon/Cheese front.

    My commander is Shas'o Fo'rann Sa'cea Kais Mal'caor... commonly called Janus - admittedly because I tend to be a swing player when friends and I do a allied-up game.

    Its good to be 'Neutral'!
