I'm making a hostage-rescue mission where the VIP in question is the heir to the Vasudan throne. What in blazes do you call the son of an Emperor? I'm fairly certain it isn't "prince."

  • The GTA expects that every man will do his duty.
Prince is the only term I know of -- for instance Kaiser William's sons were 'Kronprinz' or 'Prinz'.  I have never heard of any other title.
If a man consults whether he is to fight, when he has the power in his own hands, it is certain that his opinion is against fighting.

There are terms you can use to denote the same thing. Using 'prince' all the time can get repetitive. 'Heir', 'successor to the throne' will work too.

You can call him crown prince or heir designate. Heir presumptive if he is provisionally placed in line. Heir apparent if he is the one with the greatest claim, eg eldest son (patriarchal society).

They bud. You cut off a finger and plant it, and in a few months it becomes a Vasudan.

Like roses.............how very sweet. I'd imagine that makes battlefield clear up a lot easier.

No, you would just have to be very thorough.

I think we need something more thorough than a slap. Also, tinfoil, learn to use the [me] tag.
