Wabbit Island
2013-08-07 23:45 By [Sabi] 24


During the last recent weeks, our reporters from the World of Twelve Gazette have worked hard under the leadership of Zezette. You may ask: "But why?". Simply in order to gather as much information to help you prepare for your future visit of the Wabbit Island and its mysteries.

Here is what we have collected through various publications of each of the Four Nations.

We will do our best to keep you informed of any new informations about this island which has been inaccessible for way too long!

Extract 1 - Aperirel 970 - Short Unusual Events


Many fishermen reported spotting an unidentified flying object above the seas separating Bonta and Amakna. The various witness statements vary between: a trail of ice in the sky (condensing before evaporating), a glowing crystal wire unwinding itself at a rapid pace, and possibly even a single slow beam of light following a downward unlikely path.

All the witnesses agree on the direction taken by the "icy crystal ray of light".

After sending a team to the location, no trace of this phenomenon could be found. Some suspected an abuse of Bamboo Milk the day before the incident by the so-called "witnesses".

However, this fantastic story has reopened the waterways previously closed to Wabbit Island, due to an embargo placed many years ago by the Wa Wabbit on all the other islands, archipelagos, and continents. The reason behind it being the "wenovation of the Wa Wabbit dungeon".

Extract 2 - Maysial 970 - Geography & Biology Topic


"Brave adventurers seeking to confront the legendary Wa Wabbit and courageous Enutrofs, eager to find new markets, recently raided Wabbit Island and have reported strange rumors. At first glance, it seems that the island is in the hands of strange creatures with orange fur and with the sweet name of Lenalds.

This sighting raised old questions, which are anchored deep in the past and at the heart of the scientific debates during the period prior to Chaos Ogrest:

Who occupied the island first, the Lenalds or the Wabbits?

Even though most of the texts of the time seem to agree to grant, legitimately, the seniority to the Lenalds on the small archipelago. The flame of our theorists was revived and the most renowned scientists in each specialty did not waste any time to express their theories. Each argues the accuracy and truthfulness of their theories with large reinforced unverifiable arguments and complex formulas which would not make any sense to any new comers.

Summary of the Debates


"I can only agree more with my colleague Marc Eadbut's theory - State of the Iop - Which says that the Lenalds have always had their place as precursors on the so-called "Wabbit " island.

Without going any deeper on their natural fierce and disciplined fighters' abilities, I want to emphasize that their flamboyant coat fits perfectly with the local flora, which naturally gives them a distinct advantage and a legitimate reason to wear such pristine orange fur."

 

Professor Chamay, first name Leon, Pre-Ogrest Chaos Sufokian Chromatic Zoomonology Specialist


"It is clear that the supremacy of the Wabbits has no doubt attached to it, as well as the pre-investment of the archipelago by the Lenalds, local flora present since immemorial time, as shown in the archives of the Amaknian Conservatory for the Scientific Primitive and Speculative Superiority, is undoubtedly made of, for the major part of Cawwottus Genewicus Gigantis. Evidence that the environment of the island has always been conducive to the development of the species: Sapiens Wabbitus Cwoqu'Cawwottus Vulgaris. The rumors that the Cawwots were imported by Wabbits are pure unfounded speculations."
 

Anne-So Poriphik, Progressive Zoomonologist of the ACSPSS (Amaknian Conservatory for the Scientific Primitive and Speculative Superiority)


"My evolutionism theory does not define which species were present at first, but it gives an idea of which should ultimately occupy most of the space and dominate the region. I will take the time to verify all of this if I get to stop by these islands. For now my next stop is Bilbiza."
 

Darles Charwin, Independant Antiropologist Navigator – currently sailing the seas aboard the Pointer


"My colleagues talk a lot; but few have really explored the archipelago since the reopening of the maritime routes. I will now go along with my three sons Xam, Souli, and Jakes, to explore the area to find traces of the origins of each species and finally shed some light on this worthy debate! I am confident that my theory of the two species coming from other islands will be confirmed and fully justifying the budget reported in my village taxes."
 

Count Henry Begueyon, Brakmar Antiropologist of Unruly Creatures


"It is undeniable that the two species have lived together early in the archipelago. Traces of ancient civilizations pertinent to or derived from those two families can be easily found on the land of the Wabbit archipelago."
 

Jenry Hones Junior, Professor in Archaology at UBI (University of Bonta for the Immaterial). But you can call him Indy, just like his favorite Bow Meow


"The wealth and ancestry of the two families only explains the rumors that Wabbits have disappeared from the surface of the island. Anyway, I'm happy to claim all artifacts for scientific profit and for the historic conservation of the Wabbits, if they have indeed been eradicated. As stated so well by my "colleague" Hones Jr., these pieces belong to a museum. If I am the one who sells them to a museum, then it is only a fair reward and especially for my investment in this scientific cause. Do not tell me that these forgotten Wabbits will be returning from beyond the grave to reclaim their dues: myths and superstitions! And why not Zwombbits for that matter!"
 

Renemille Lebboq, Brakmar Archaologist affiliated with the League "Knowledge and Profits"


As you can see there are many points of view, but overall, it does show a real enthusiasm and an undeniable passion for this so important science subject... 

Conclusion

Extract 3 - Junssidor 970 - Section Zoomonology & Antiropology Section


A future article will discuss the amazing discoveries on Wabbit Island, including the development of a distinct species, with a dark coat, other than the Wabbit, which seems to have completely replaced the Wabbits on the surface of the island. We will then leave in search of Wa Wabbit, which is still to be found.

It would be cool to see as well moon island, dregon island and pandala island

I was always under the impression that the fouxes in pandala are recent relations to the lenalds on wabbit land. I seem to remember a piece of dialogue suggesting that, but I could just be confused (especially given the sprite re-using). Either way, they were definitely on wabbit land first, since wabbit land already existed when dofus came out of beta, while pandala wasn't added until a month or two after (maybe three?).

It was Hudski, and he got mixed up with the fact that Dofus later on used modified sprites of the Lenalds for the Firefouxes I believe. It does get confusing seeing similar sprites. Though yes, it is probable that Ankama will make fun of East Asians, especially when the boss is called the Emperor, which is a title most often associated with East Asia.

I have always wondered if Wabbit Island was meant to make fun of Imperialism of the 19th and 20th century, or even just Caucasian conquest in general from the 16th century onward. Before we found out that Wa meant Roi, I though Wa meant Ra to make fun of the explorers, such as Francisso Hernandez, who acted like a deity to infiltrate foreign lands.

Hello all !
Actually, "Wa" stands for "Roi", which means "King" in French
the "Ra" reference is a nice piece of thinking, but is sadly untrue.

The Wa title for Wabbits is "historically" inherited from Dofus MMO, Wakfu's "brother".

Have you noticed the difference between the spelling of the words "Empelol" and "Emiw"... What could this mean...?

Have a nice day !
Yeah i did notice that. The wabbits use w's for r's, but I believe the lenalds use l's for r's.

I would have thought you would use another term such as Czaw, Waja, Caesew, or even Empewow to make it language friendly for the EN community . But at least you cleared it up for those who read your post

Lenalds (Renards, which means Foxes) use L's and Wabbits use W's for R's .
ahh you beat me to it, lol, I was just about to ask if lenald or renard was french for fox, lol.
Also, swapping out the R's for L's is meant to make fun of cultures with languages, such as those found in East Asia, that cannot tell the difference between L's and R's due to how closely the sounds are made in the mouth.
I'm sure there's a chicken flied lice joke in there somewhere, but I think someone said earlier the lenalds are from pandala so they probably are representative of asian culture.

Well in middle eastern culture emir is a word for prince and vizir or vizier is a high ranking official. These titles go back to the ottoman empire, and though I had really not associated it with Egypt, I suppose it is part of the middle east or heavily influenced by it. I didn't know wa wabbit was a reference to the god ra however.
Oops, I did not complete that sentence. I did not mean the others were a reference to Egypt, just the Wa Wabbit. Meant to say "Emir, Emperor, and Grand Vizir each refer to some sort of high royal position and Wa Wabbit is a reference to Ra, the Egyptian god" .

I am not absolutely sure that Wa Wabbit is a reference to Ra but that is what I have been believing for years.
