I was wondering what Tyrian means though.

anyways, keep it up
Thanks, it means a lot coming from you. :D

Tyrian is a shade of purple that the Romans declared to be a royal color [royal purple, as it's called]. I was looking for a shade of purple, as purple fits into something later on in the game. Tyrian also has the first three letters as Tyrogue. It has a few other ties to the game, but that's for later. The Wikipedia entry has more information on Tyrian Purple. Hope that clears it up.
