Quote from: Blankshield
Only because it's near and dear to my heart (see the Dogs in the IRC game), your entry for Jezebel  (wicked) is the common association, but not actually the meaning.  The meaning is "follower of idols".  


Whoa, whoa, no, dude, no. El means God, for one thing (like GamaliEL or MichaEL). She was a follower of Ba'Al (which, historically, I think is cognate with El, one of the origins of the Jewish God), but her name means "chastity".

Uh, here.

I think the name is interesting because it implies an outsider-ness, and an inherent wickedness about bringing in outside forces.

And holy crap, I just found this Mark Twain quote:"Jezebel said she could secure the vineyard; and she went forth and forged letters to the nobles and wise men, in the King's name, and ordered them to proclaim a fast and set Naboth on high before the people, and suborn two witnesses to swear that he had blasphemed."

The Scriptures Internet Edition are the texts that the LDS website refers to.

I assume they do not try to make the language more accessible, that is, lessen its appeal to DitV users.

I just updated my list of names to include 140 or so Mountain People names.  They are actually Cheyenne, from some land allotment documents I found, and I included both the original phonetic transcription and an English counterpart.  I also added a bunch of unusual 19th century names to the general lists.

I hope you find these useful!

Hey Jasonm,

Totally awesome work on those play aids! They look really good and you can tell that you spent a lot of time on them. I cobbled them together last weekend in preparation for my first Dogs game. The other players were totally envious!
They are great, but man they took a while to make. I live in Japan so we use a4 size paper here, so I had to trim and cut and hack to make it fit together. As I was doing it, I was thinking to myself, I would totally pay good money to have these made for me.
Anyways, keep up the great work and know that your hard work is having results all over the world! :)

Thanks very much.  Glad they worked out for you!  I had fun making them; they scratched my Dogs itch while I tried to round up some players.  I'd love to hear anecdotes of how the "quotations" book gets used in play.
