I call my world Ccwiicc because that is its name in Rwano, and Rwebhu is Rwemun, so that's what she calls it. I didn't even realize that until just recently, but...well, I suppose its as good a name to call it as any. :D

That's such a cool way to find a name for your world. :cool:
How do you pronounce that?

Quick. :D Easy. The alternate spelling is Kwik, which might make it more obvious, but I vacillate between spellings because I don't want to annoy her. * wry * Especially at the moment. Ccwiicc is the way to spell it in my Rwano phonetic system, Kwik is in the general phonetic system (otherwise known as GPS :D). It means Rock.

So, technically, you could have the people in your book calling the place they live in World?

He can tunnel through solid plastic, but doing so drains his endurance for one hour. Balec is able to view distant locations with his mind.
He can force creatures to freeze in place and can become tiny. Sadly, Balec becomes ugly in the presence of silver, and struggles with being unable to smell.

I recently started calling my world The Sfer (pronounced "sphere") because the planet is sphere-shaped and that's how the characters would spell it.

I call my world Gwedel which means..G-Good, E&L-Elves, D&W-Dwarves. So it means Good elves and Dwarves. :D

Yay! You said Lupa! Which means earth and Mundo means World.
