I'm sure there's many players who have found the titles on the hidden vendors, but apparently I haven't. Can someone that has found these let me know of the locations of the vendors that sell them? Much appreciated...

be aware that someone creating for these names for Trion was not culturally sensitive


Spanish: Chango - slang
Literal Meaning: monkey


This is not said to someone in a humorous way. I am not aware of it being used in a positive way- then again maybe its been taken back like then "N" word has in the black community.

Where are you from that chango is only used in a negative way? I have lived all over southern California, Arizona and northern Mexico and chango is normally used to describe a energetic kid or someone you know who is tall and gangly.

Was used to refer to blacks - like I said maybe its changed ands used differently in some areas or it was never used that way for you but it has roots in being negative in some areas.

hmm, i always knew the word to be of hispanic origin and not necessarily derogatory.
i figured they were using it as a votan word that we don't know the definition of yet...

I believe that Chango is also the Voodoo god of fire, thunder,and power, but I could be wrong about that. Have absolutely no idea what Yelanda Nanggo is though.

For the titles in the hidden vendors, they're at the very very bottom of the list.

In some African / Caribbean religious circles, Chango (also pronounced and spelled Shango) is a god of fire, lightning and thunder in the Yoruba religion and is revered as an Orisha. Orisha's are gods of a pantheon religious system that usually Voodoo, Santeria, and other African based religions acknowledge as gods. (Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shango ). Also in Santeria especially, the god Shango is referred to as a king and a great warrior (Source: http://cubanyoruba.blogspot.com/2007/05/shango.html ).

I'm not sure if the original designers intended this of the game, but if they did... WOOT! because I love the African references in the game.

Another reference that is African based in the game is the Ekaru Predator armor. The name Ekaru is a place in Kenya, Africa that is a settlement in the central province (Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ekaru ).

Sorry for all the wikipedia citations, but I can also find other sources for this. The only title thus far I've found that I don't know where comes from is the title Yelanda Nanggo. Does anyone know its meaning?
