Mahldrusecs...Selbdes...notice anything interesting about these names? I'll give you a hint. Both names are actually other words that have been scrambled to form the names of these races. This is a fun way for any writer to think up names to use for fictional characters and places in a book.
This is a riddle I want to see if you can solve on your own. In Mahldrusecs the "Mahl" and the pluralizing "s" at the end are not in the root word.
In Selbdes, use the whole word.
I don't have any prizes to give away (except for that great feeling of knowing you're right). This should be a fun puzzle for anyone who likes word scrambles. Let me know if you get the answer. Just leave it in the comments. I'll let you know the answers and who got it right in a future blog.
