NAMING RULES UPDATE
« on: September 03, 2021, 05:18:10 PM »
As you all know, Totoma from the mountains used to be robbed of Naming Dreams. In a concept that seemed incredibly alien to the other Kin, the Totoma neither dreamt their names nor were given them by their parents: instead, Totoma always earned their names through some act of bravery or valor. Totoma were called "Totoma" until they became an adult, at which point they earned their name and the right to use it.

HOWEVER....

Time has passed and cross-breeding has proliferated in the swamp. As such, the strict rule of kin names -- naming dreams for Kimeti, Kiokote, Acha, and Zikwa, but not for Totoma -- has degraded, and some newborn Totoma have begun to have naming dreams, instead. On the flip side of the coin, some of the other species have awoken from their larval or eggy slumber to realize they have had no dream, and have no idea who they are or what they should be called. These kin will have to take a page out of the Totoma book: they'll have to earn their names, being gifted by those around them as they come of age.

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?

This means that going forward, you can either choice to name your kin of any species via a NAMING DREAM or via a NAMING STORY. Stories will still need to be written at time of naming; Naming Dream kin will be certed as Kimeti, Kiokote, Acha, and Zikwa always were before.

Forms in the Certing Thread have been updated to reflect this!

If you have a Totoma that was certed as "Totoma" without a story before 9/04/21, we're offering a grace period opportunity for you to give this Totoma a naming dream name instead of a naming story! There is now a form specifically for this in the Certing thread: https://matope-swamp.com/forums/index.php?topic=7.0
