Cyclopes vs. Cyclopses

CYCLOPES:

  • Shadow_of_Death_Manual_Page_14 - yog's specialty ('...increases the Attack and Defense skills of any Cyclopes or Cyclops Kings he commands...')
  • Rumor - 'If you want to conquer a town, bring along several Cyclopes...'
  • CRTRAITS.TXT - stated as plural form
  • HeroSpec.TXT - specialty name

CYCLOPSES:

looks like cyclopses are winning. CRTRAITS.TXT is a serious advantage - it defines the in-game spelling. moreover, we have 'cyclopses' replaced by 'cyclopes' in the same text in another manual.

as for me, im done with this war. after this line

Cyclopes Creature Bonus: Cyclopses Increases the Attack and Defense skills of any Cyclopses or Cyclops Lords for each level attained after 6th level.

from HeroSpec.txt im ok with using cyclopes and cyclopses in the same sentence. its just too much for me. --GroundhogYear (talk) 18:42, 16 May 2021 (UTC)

But if you had to choose one, would you rather say cyclo-peez or cyclop-ses? →ima 18:51, 16 May 2021 (UTC)
Also what is up with the Cyclops Lords, Yog? NWC really did a number on this one. →ima 18:59, 16 May 2021 (UTC)
dont forget that SoD manual tells us about yog the wizard with chain lightning specialty. but i think it will be better for my mental health just not to think about all this. i found peace. no more es-ses. i vote for cyclopeae --GroundhogYear (talk) 21:17, 16 May 2021 (UTC)
