"every time they make a move" - does that refer to movement actions only, or to any action of any type? --Testbutt (talk) 06:18, 29 May 2017 (UTC)

It refers to all actions that take a turn, maybe I should clarify that in the article. So it basically means that their speed (for all actions) is a bit lower on average. --Bluescreenofdeath (talk) 17:54, 29 May 2017 (UTC)

Poor name

Since "Asgard" means the home of the Æsir, "Asgardian" would mean "denizen of the home of the Æsir", which is an Æs. So there's no need for the word "Asgardian" to exist in the language. It's like saying "Germanian" for someone from Germany. Gee whiz, don't kids learn Old English in school any more? Netzhack (talk) 12:23, 27 August 2017 (UTC)

I'm not sure if that's meant to be a troll comment, but anyway, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Asgardian - and also, the name suggestion wasn't mine, the race was suggested by a player and I decided to implement it; I'm happy with the name and it will stay --Bluescreenofdeath (talk) 12:10, 19 October 2017 (UTC)
Less than half troll. What's the use of knowing about archaic language and literature if I have to keep the knowledge to myself? Netzhack (talk) 09:35, 20 October 2017 (UTC)
