Welcome

Welcome to Divinus!

The transition has gone very smoothly. Myself and Myst are always talking and I personally foresee no real issues in making this the single most powerful guild on the server.

We have an awesome base of great players and this will expand over the next few days as those who couldn't be here at launch filter on in.

So welcome one and all! Lets make our presence known.

Only question is, who was the mom and who was the dad? I'd bet money ToF was hit'n defiant from the back. Hopefully defiant can loose that preggie weight and get back to her shape. Since ToF obviously ran off to mexico, avoiding child support, I guess that makes divinus a bastard and defiant a MILF.

Yes, I did just make that up off the top of my head. Yes, I did just post this just to add numbers to my post count too. Oh well...all hail divinus.

Pronounciation

There has been some debate as to exactly how our guild name is pronounced.

My flat mate is studying Latin at Uni and has not had a single grade below A yet, which in itself sickens me, but he clarified a few things for us.

Divinus is pronounced Dee-vee-Noose and it is the masculine form for godly, derived from Venus the female deity (Divina).

In old latin, the V would not be emphasized much, so the initial D is prominent, as is the hard U that sounds like in noose.

So, Di-vi-nus with emphasis on D and nus, pronounced Dee-vee-noose.

Take it or leave it. The lesson has ended.

Actually, if we're going to get technical here, it could (correctly) be pronounced Dee-wee-noose, as v and u were two iterations of the same letter in some interpretations of classical Latin.

Quite correct.

However, I thought I was already pushing things so didn't want to introduce that whole V vs W thing as well. I also refused to introduce any concept that may have the word wee in our name as I'm not sure about you guys but it has certain connotations where I come from.


But yes, the v is technically a wee sound, for the puritans amongst us.
