I'm wondering if it's so someone can make a robot faction and needs random names for his units…

So I'm thinking for the first part of the names;
Mecha~
Robo~
Astro~
Proto~
Servo~
Ultra~
Mega~
Aasimo~
Turbo~
Omni~
Golgo~
Prote~
Hyper~
Super~
Techno~
Mazin~
Star~
Gal~
Volt~
Grandi~
Laser~
Opti~
Rodi~
Blen~
Goldo~
Bull~
Neo~
Battle~
War~

And for the second part;
~th
~tron
~ov
~us
~ion
~tech
~um
~zord
~ger
~zer
~mus
~der
~tor
~zeoth
~eon
~mech
~solar
~sentry
~bot
~droid

Well, it's a start…

I'm not sure if you're serious or not, but name-calling is unacceptable in the forums (name-calling=flaming).

:eng: Hey, just a warning: George Lucas has copyrighted the word "Droid". The new cell-phone that uses that as its name in America (called something else in some parts of the world) uses "Droid" with permission from Lucas.
I'm finally admitting that this will be a very long (if not permanent) Wesbreak. Thank y'all for the great times, and may Wesnoth rise to become one of the most popular games on the planet.

You're kidding.
I swear I've seen "droid" in things other than Starwars... but now that I think about it, I can't bring any examples to mind... I guess you learn something new every day. :D

EDIT: fixed grammar mistake. "Your" --> "You're"

According to wikipedia, King_Elendil is right, although the term is trademarked. ;)

And of course we all know that everything on Wikipedia is always true. :wink:

The galactic empires era has a "droid" unit. Should that be changed?

You are an Arch Mage - You're definitely intelligent, but some people would say you spend too much time inside. The power you have learned, however, is simply unmatched.

Oh and one of the mainline campaigns mentions an Apple. Should that be changed?

non-sarcastic answer: no.

That sounds like the name of the Russian President during the Cold War. :lol2:

I had a Lancer called Gin who missed all his strikes on the enemy's Elvish Shaman, even though he caught it crossing a swamp. I suspect I know why he missed, too...Hmmm...
