Talk:Inebni Andabar/Conflicts

From PathfinderWiki


Here's an odd one picked up by User:Dmeta in the Sothis navbox: thanks. There are two variant spellings of this cleric's name, and we can be clear they are the same person as they have the same job, levels in cleric, etc.:

By PathfinderWiki:Canon policy, we should take the latest spelling, so Inebni Andebar, which would mean a page move. I am going to pause for comment, though. Maybe this conflict page and a redirect from the alternative more modern spelling and a note about variant spelling on the page itself might be sufficient in this case. This seems so trivial, asking Paizo is probably wasting their time. --Fleanetha (talk) 23:29, 3 December 2018 (UTC)

Be sure to check out the Odeber family sidebar in Guide to Darkmoon Vale p56, which uses Andabar for the family at large in Osirion but arguably makes this discrepancy even weirder by going through multiple different corruptions of the name across regions, languages, and eras. Might actually be worth poking Paizo over. -Oznogon (talk) 01:20, 4 December 2018 (UTC)
Nice spot Oznogon: conspiracy indeed. Well, I have added a comment with a link here and a redirect as a decent stopgap as discussed above. My initial search at Paizo produced nothing, but I'll keep looking and if necessary raise a question. In the real world, this would just be a question of variant transliteration from hieroglyphs - maybe it is simply a product of Paizo's deep immersion into the world of Golarion that we have such realistic textual differences? --Fleanetha (talk) 14:47, 4 December 2018 (UTC)
That text in Guide to Darkmoon Vale is also in shortened form in the Campaign Setting 199 and in its introduction (Campaign Setting 2), Mike McArtor claims credit for the Odeber family. I think it best, then, to leave this one as 'Unresolved' rather than chase. Anyone searching can now find this information and the comments on the page. --Fleanetha (talk) 15:04, 4 December 2018 (UTC)
