Talk:Loptous

From Fire Emblem Wiki, your source on Fire Emblem information. By fans, for fans.

Move to Loptous

OK, I am thinking that due to Heroes, we should rename this to Loptous (character) rather than Loptyr (character). And if so, we should establish some ground rules. The simplest thing to do would probably be anything that is ロプト (Loputo/Lopt, i.e. Loptyrian; so Lopt Sect, Lopt Sword, Lopt Mage, Lopt Empire...) would become Lopt and anything that's ロプトウス (Loputousu/Loptous, i.e. Loptyr) would become Loptous.

For some reason, however, we also use Loptyr where the Japanese uses "Lopt" (Loptyr Sword, Loptyr Mage, Loptyr Empire), with the cult being an exception, where we use "Loptyrians" (but sometimes "Lopt Sect" or "Loptyrian Order"). A literal translation of that is something akin to "Lopt religious group". Sect implies it is a division of a larger group, which it isn't; thus, I do not support using the term "Lopt Sect". I used the term above due to it being the recognizable term (well, I think Lopto Sect is the commonly used term but whatever). PikaSamus (talk) 15:36, 9 May 2018 (UTC)

I say a wide conversion of Loptyr-->Loptous makes sense and is what the wiki has done historically when it comes to related/shared terms technically not being localized Lopt Order maybe? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯L95 (talk) 15:39, 9 May 2018 (UTC)
All right, so I have replaced Loptyr with Loptous, now the question remains for what to do with Loptyrian. Lopt Order sounds like it would be fine. PikaSamus (talk) 02:45, 14 May 2018 (UTC)
