    BTW not being pre-planet-name-thread and therefore not having read it all, why is the mission pack wrong then?

    Because this discussion is supposed to be about what the orignal intent for the name of the Planet was, not what it has become. I still think that they wouldn't have used the "planet of Na Pali" in the books if it were wrong, as those were written before the game was released.

    I have reluctantly acknowledged "Na Pali" as the de facto name for the Nali Planet, for the purposes of general convenience and the work on "Unreal: Battle for Na Pali" (click the Team UnrealSP banner in my sig for more info).

    I personally make up for the discrepancy by referring to it as a member of the Gryphon star system. Gryphon #4-A, if you like a full name. This conveniently allows references to "Na Pali" and "Gryphon" both to make sense. :D

    I still maintain that it was never the original intention for the planet to be called Na Pali. In fact, the disappearance of "Gryphon" from the official site at a very early stage suggests that Epic wanted the planet to remain mysterious and not, in fact, have any name at all.

    Given Legend's history w/ the Unreal series, and given the freedom Epic and the publishers have given them to mess around with the franchise as much as they want, I don't think that RtNP's title can be given as proof that the planet was ever originally intended to be called Na Pali.

    I assure you, that's all I intend to say. LOL at the bumping of this thread!

    you just won't let it go......will you? ;)
    even after somebody emailed Epic and they replied saying the name was NaPali, you still have to be stubborn and call it Gyrphon :rolleyes: :)

    well you didn't quite get my post
    you're only calling it NaPali for the benefit of the BFNP project otherwise I think you'd still call it Gryphon, plus you you state in your post that you still don't believe NaPali is the true name anyways since you still argue that Epic never truely named it
    so you may call it NaPali now, but you still don't truely believe that it's the correct name :)

    For the record, I don't like "Gryphon" either.

    I think the debate about the name says it all, its still a mystery
    we just call it...something...

    http://www.unreal.com/press/powervr_pr.html

    the only references ingame is gateway to na pali and na pali haven
    in the map titles. skycaves/skytown

    the gryphon is a flying creature, and Unreal was going to have some kind of dragon.

    I guess the mix filters down...

    or.. how long can we rehash this subject... :bulb:

    NaPali is mentioned as the name of the planet in one of the UT2004 Assault levels - mothership I think (says summat like "...Vortex Rikers crash lands on Na Pali...")

    NaPali is definately better than Gryphon imo :)

    here is the description for one of the Skaarj races in ut2004

    the AS-Mothership description

    apparently the Vortex Rikers gets recovered off Na Pali.

    that would be an interesting scenario for a possible game.

    Wasn't the planet unmarked? How would humans know the name for it? I bet they named it based on something on Earth.
