|#2zombiegleemaxFeb 21, 2004 14:34:08||Sounds like a neat idea, but since I dunno crap about squat then I can't really say anything :D|
|#3OrnumFeb 21, 2004 17:45:28||I don't know. There isn't much meaing to tanar'ri society in general, so why start with the type names of the race to find hidden meaning. Perhaps some sage somewhere made a mistake, confusing the then newly discovered type of tanar'ri with the baatezu they were fighting somewhere in the planes of conflict, and the name just ended up sticking after the truth was found out.|
|#4zombiegleemaxFeb 21, 2004 19:39:58||Yeah..I could see that also..see? I don't know squat about crap I tells ya!|

Yees duly noted.
Anyways, it would be interesting to turn it into one of the Baatezu's dirty little darks they don't talk about. The original glabrezu being a baatezu convert. Finding baatezu society too rigid and all that. Or again it could be just some graybeard's screw up. Whichever is more fun. 'Course you could go one step further and say that the 'converted' glabrezu was actually manipulated by the 'loths to weaken the baatezu armies. But then again depending upon how you count there are 17 different ranks of baatezu, a Prime number...hmm a Mechanus influence perhaps. Well that's enough from me have your own fun.

That's scary. There are also 17 great lords of the baatezu (Lords of the Nine + Dark Eight) and 17 Planes in the Great Ring.

Well, if you count all the inner planes and outer planes. There are actually about 53 or 54 planes in the known multiverse.

It just goes to show that the 'zu have already got plans if they win the Blood War.
|#10zombiegleemaxFeb 23, 2004 22:48:52||I think that the kelvezu and the uridezu, as well as the glabrezu, may disagree with your supposition that everything with a name ending in '-zu' is a baatezu, Rhys.|
The horde of angry tanar'ri should be arriving shortly.
|#11zombiegleemaxFeb 24, 2004 13:55:19||I read somewhere that one of the Baatezu lords and one Abyssal Lord were having secret meetings. Anyone else know of anything like this?|
