I would have to go with Shi'Suam or Suam'Shi, whatever you think sounds better.

I think you're taking this too literally.

A "Trial by Fire", or a "Baptism by Fire", is a term used in our language to refer to combat.

As such, the Tau word probably reflects that. Perhaps "Mont'ko'cha" (lit. Battle of Worthy Purpose).


Or how about Yr't'mont (Experience of Battle)?

I like Mont'ko'cha the best Wargamer. Thanks a lot.

Cheers!

Yes, look for the Ultimate Tau Database in Important topics at the top of the main page of the Tau section.
