What's the name of the Suikoden world?

Postby ArrowsAway » Tue Jan 10, 2006 8:38 am

Hi. I've been playing the suikoden series but I never really got to know about the name of the suikoden world?
Did someone in the game mentioned about the name of the world wherein Suikoden takes place? If not does anyone have an idea?

I hope everything is going delicious.

We just call it Suikoverse for no apparent reason.

Worlds typically have no names, unless there are other worlds. It's just like our world--we only call it "world."

I think that we should call the "Suikoworld" the World of True Runes?
Is it more or less appropriate? I mean like the World of wings and scales..

Why? The reason the 'World of wings and scales' is called like that is because someone said so. its not actually the 'official' name of it. Well it is to us but it isn't for those people in the game. You might as well call it 'The world of large scaly things'.

Hmm...guess there's more than one definition of "world." For example, if you're considering the planet to be the world, we call our world "Earth." Or if you simply mean all the land with all the continents and countries combined, it would be similar to Azeroth in "World of Warcraft." There are different country and continent names but the overall world is called Azeroth. Or you could be talking different dimensional worlds, like they seem to have in Suikoden and many other fantasy stories.

But whatever the case you mean, nobody in the games seems to have a name for the Suikoden universe as a whole. Pretty much, they always refer to the country they're in at the time or which country they'll be going to. The big points about the games are wars and individual countries fighting wars.
Hello Suikoden-type people:D

You can't really ask that because the concept of planets don't exist in Suikoden.

Hence, saying that it's Earth would be wrong... It'll just be the World...

Something I found interesting was that in the orginal suikoden, the map was called "SuikoMap", although I didn't look to much into because of the glitches and miss-translations and what not.

But there is the concept of different dimensions, so why not give a label to the one dimension the games take place in?

Actually the Suikoden three Manga did state that "Griffons were the most beutiful creatures on ("Earth")".

In the story of creation God stated that the land that man dwelled on was to be called "Earth"

As well there is a scene in the Suikoden2 Muse City hold where Jowy is talking well looking at the moon itself (that means there's atleast one of them).

Oh well, as long as the world continues for time to come it's all that matters.
