Thank you Audiendus, every additional word reinforces the ... dragonbody ... the dragonage.
For the moment the compound nouns as dragonhuntress have to wait in the queue, wanna exhaust suffixwise first.

One such word is your 'dragonometry' as in the 'hemoglobin + -ometry':
https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/hemoglobinometry#English

#210 dragonometry leprechaunometry

Just realized how stupid sometimes the quick "I know this word" reactions can be, the above word may mean not the Hunter-of-dragons but the Hunter-with-dragon:



Of course, the Avatar masterpiece depicted/animated the-dragon-rideress awesomely:





The -age suffix, looked into it in some other thread but not here, very potent it is since it has its variants/roots in Latin:

Suffix
-age
Forming nouns with the sense of collection or appurtenance.
wordage
forming nouns indicating a process, action, or a result
blockage; slippage; shrinkage
forming nouns of a state or relationship
bondage
forming nouns indicating a place
orphanage; hermitage
forming nouns indicating a charge, toll, or fee
postage; brokerage; corkage
forming nouns indicating a rate
percentage; mileage


https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/-age

So,

#211 dragonage leprechaunage
#212 dragonages leprechaunages

-aticus

Derived from -ātus (“-ate”, “-like”) + -icus (derivational suffix), occurring in some original case and later used freely.

Suffix
-āticus m (feminine -ātica, neuter -āticum); first/second declension

Used to form adjectives indicating a relation to the root noun or actions related to it.

umbra (“shadow”, “shade”) + ‎-aticus → ‎umbrāticus (“found in the shade”)
via (“road”, “path”) + ‎-aticus → ‎viāticus (“related to a journey or travel”)


https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/-aticus#Latin

Suffix
-ātus m (feminine -āta, neuter -ātum); first/second declension

-ed, -ate, -like. Used to form adjectives from nouns indicating the possession of a thing or a quality.

barba (“beard”) → barbātus (“bearded, having a beard”)
rēticulum (“small net”) → rēticulātus (“reticulated, net-like”)
albus (“white”) → albātus (“clothed in white”)


https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/-atus#Latin

So,

#213 dragonaticus leprechaunaticus
#214 dragonatica leprechaunatica
#215 dragonaticum leprechaunaticum

#216 dragonatus leprechaunatus
#217 dragonata leprechaunata
#218 dragonatum leprechaunatum

Today, while listening to the awesomest (most awesome), in years, spiritual sharer YouTube channel Trevor Ilesley heard 'awesome' in different light, and asked where are:

https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/dragonsome#English
https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/awesomer
https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/awesomest

Thus complementing with:

#219 dragonsome leprechaunsome
#220 dragonsomer leprechaunsomer
#221 dragonsomest leprechaunsomest

Not to overlook some more goodies:

#222 dragonsomely leprechaunsomely
#223 dragonsomeness leprechaunsomeness

-tastic

Etymology
pun +‎ -tastic
Adjective
puntastic (comparative more puntastic, superlative most puntastic)
(informal, of a pun) Extremely funny.

https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/puntastic#English

#224 dragontastic leprechauntastic

Funny, the Chinese air forces have their Stealth Fighter with its belly tattooed:



Western military designations have it as China's J-20 "Mighty Dragon" Stealth Fighter.

If forced to report that the aircraft performed awesomely (here mighty/mightily) in some campaign I would use:

#225 dragontasticly leprechauntasticly

Also, the beautiful word shogun+ate prompted for:

#226 dragonate leprechaunate
#227 dragonates leprechaunates

-ate

Etymology

From the Latin perfect passive participle suffixes of first conjugation verbs -ātus, -āta, and -ātum. In Middle English, it was written -at.
Suffix

-ate

(in adjectives) having the specified thing

lobate — “having lobes”

(in adjectives) characterized by the specified thing

palmate — “resembling the palm”

(in nouns) a thing characterised by the specified thing

apostate — “one who is characterized by dissent”

(in nouns) a rank or office

rabbinate — “the office of a rabbi”

(chemistry, in nouns) a derivative of a specified element or compound; especially a salt or ester of an acid whose name ends in -ic

acetate — “a salt or ester of acetic acid”

(in verbs) to act in the specified manner

formulate — “to act by putting (something) in a formula”

Heard 'taxonomy' while watching 'Linda Moulton Howe - Aliens Are Watching Us From A Secret Moon Base', instantly felt the gap - the missing -nomy counterparts.

Previously touched this suffix but there is more to it:
#098: dragononomy leprechaunonomy similar to organonomy
#099: dragononomic leprechaunonomic similar to organonomic

#229 dragonomic leprechaunomic
#230 dragonomies leprechaunomies

https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/astronomist#English

#241 dragonomist leprechaunomist

To form the adjective first (with -alis) and then to add some more Latin suffixes...

Is there a similar pronunciation, to Alannah Myles' "dragonflies" as sung in "Family Secret", in English speaking areas of the world.

Asked myself on her YouTube channel:
"Bought Rockinghorse back in 1992, this album has been bettering my life.
Since my English is buggy, please tell me this lovely 'dragEEnflies' pronunciation, what is the story behind this variant?!"

Her pronunciation below is linked to the clip itself (2:08 mark) at the verse:

Family Secret lyrics

Sweet breeze, blowin' through a summer dress.
Seen from a window above.
Captured in the eyes of love.
Shivers, in the cool, forbidden, dawn.
Where the Iris and Jasmin run wild.
She was young, and he was a child.
He vanished, like July.
Some folks, they wondered why.
But old money has its friends.
Ain't it funny how the truth will bend?
It's the family secret, don't pass it on.
Daddy's angel, till something went wrong.
It's the family secret of her mystery
Whispers, how they sound like raindrops.
Hush now, we'll make it alright.
She's framed by the front porch light.
Uh huh, suspicion, raising up like dragonflies.
They say there's a story to tell,
Buried in the family well.
Now the congregation prays.
Save us from our evil ways.
But old money has its friends.
Ain't it funny how the truth will bend?
It's the family secret, it's the family secret, don't pass it on.
Daddy's angel, till something went wrong.
It's the family secret, just let it be.
I know the secret of her mystery
It's the family secret, it's the family secret.
It's the family secret, don't pass it on.
Daddy's angel, till something went wrong.
It's the family secret, just let it be.
I know the secret to her mystery.
Keep it in the family now, behind closed doors.
Past the rows of cypress trees, through the Spanish moss.
Those old stone walls.
It's the family secret, it's the family secret.


As a side note, sometimes I get infuriated how talents as hers go under the radar, unappreciated properly that is.
As a kid, I had a rockinghorse, know how cool is to rock it.
Her 'Rockinghorse' album is 2x Platinum, not enough, listened to it for hours on end for a month.

Another side note, when the prefixed 'dragon' words are to be covered, the first one will be 'rockingdragon':




He learns not to learn and reverts to what all men pass by.

Intend to make a nifty (its superbness lying in the unseen (nearly-exhaustive) conjugation/juxtaposition of some *n nouns) table with 5 columns housing all the suffixed words in this thread, each row being like:

Code:

| #001 | demon      | titan      | dragon     | satan      | leprechaun      |
| #002 | demondom   | titandom   | dragondom  | satandom   | leprechaundom   |
...
| #252 | demondome  | titandome  | dragondome | satandome  | leprechaundome  |
...
| #256 | demonomist | titanomist | dragonomist| satanomist | leprechaunomist |
...


Then, when an expert in English and master morphologist looks at some row, certain brainstorming is bound to occur, I reckon. The table/roster itself serving as a starting point for further digging/discussion.

Already the list has #098 -onomy included as in next instance, yet the dominion of something is not covered well, -dome is missing (-dom is #002).

#252 dragondome leprechaundome

Also not covered some 'demon' counterparts, using the precedents as a blueprint...

We have 'priest/priests' and 'priestess/priestesses' but only satanist/satanists, why so?

"This clearly reveals that she was a satanist, which makes Theosophy a Satanist religion."
http://www.pateo.nl/HTML/EN/PateoPedia/Disinformers/Helena_Blavatsky.htm

To me, "... she was a satanistess .." is much more suitable.

On a side note, don't agree with this slanderism, more in this article:
https://blavatskytheosophy.com/satan-is-the-only-god-did-blavatsky-really-say-that/

Whatever, to complement already existing:
#032: dragonIST leprechaunIST
#033: dragonISTS leprechaunISTS

#264 dragonISTess leprechaunISTess
#265 dragonISTSesses leprechaunISTSesses

Also, few suffixes ought to be explored, -ous, -osity, -itude:

Suffix
-ous
Used to form adjectives from nouns, to denote possession or presence of a quality in any degree, commonly in abundance.
poison + -ous → poisonous

https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/-ous

The first that caught my eye is the beautiful:

assassinous
assassin + -ous
Adjective
assassinous (comparative more assassinous, superlative most assassinous)

https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/assassinous#English

#266 dragonous leprechaunous

-osity
1. Forming nouns, usually abstract, and usually from adjectives in -ous or -ose.
2. (colloquial) Forming nouns from other adjectives for humorous effect.
https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/-osity

#267 dragonosity leprechaunosity

The plurals are met in:
https://www.thefreedictionary.com/luminosity
https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/vinosity

#268 dragonosities leprechaunosities

Etymology
From finite +‎ -itude, from Latin fīnītus + -dō (“signifying a noun of state”).
Noun
finitude (countable and uncountable, plural finitudes)
The state or characteristic of being finite; limitedness.


So,
#269 dragonitude leprechaunitude
#270 dragonitudes leprechaunitudes

Tonight will make the roster/table in PDF format, the final layout will be:

| Suffix (in alphabetical order) | demon | titan | dragon | satan | leprechaun | moron |

After sorting the rows will catch possible duplicates, think there are none, will see. Then the suffixes will be easily searchable and thus eventual overlooked variants crying for inclusion ... included.

Roughly, 6x270=1600 words side-by-side, for easy ranking, meaning, e.g. if the second column has a row TITAN-IUM with the highest rank then SATAN-IUM will gain some rank despite being an "outcast/banished" word from the Mendeleev Table, nah, not here, Sanmayce is open and does not segregate/censor.

Little do I know, there is already a Japanese movie which adopted satanium:
A physicist named [[Tetsuo Okita]] discovers a new mineral called "[[Satanium]]," which is more powerful than uranium and emits destructive effects to anyone exposed to it. However, [[Destron]] abducts Okita in hopes of finding the source of Satanium and collecting more of it to expedite their run for global domination. [[Shiro Kazami|Kamen Rider V3]] must act fast in rescuing Professor Okita and preventing Destron from collecting more of the deadly mineral.

Glad to share the first booklet in PDF (1 page strong) dedicated to deep dive into suffixing:
https://drive.google.com/file/d/16R4XT7f34WrtZMS6DnD9YkQ4zJrNCt3L/view?usp=sharing

Removing several 'on' bugs and duplicates resulted in 263 suffixes - one really nifty starting point for further investigations.
The priorities have shifted towards making a single page, more words/columns would require more pages.

Two suffixes interest me, wanna know all major words in mainstream English having them, they are:

-ade
-ada

Many years (three decenniads) ago I was impressed by a Russian TV saga about life in deep Siber called 'Sibiriada', was surprised to see the Wikipedia's article named 'Siberiade':

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Siberiade

But, the 'Hoffmaniada' (wonder why the second 'n' is omitted) stays intact.



https://encyclopedia.thefreedictionary.com/E.+T.+A.+Hoffmann

Yet, the accepted way of writing names of such sagas is by using -ade instead of -ada, wonder how much words fall under the ... spell of these two!

The Essential Principles of STOP MOTION in 24 minutes

Love stop-motion-animation (a.k.a. still-frame-animation), the earliest one that is imprinted in my memory is 'Cheburashka', the Korean/Japanese artists surprisingly did a superb remake.

Etymology 2
Suffix
-ade
Used to form collectives; see -ad.

https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/-ade#English

-ad1 ,
1. a suffix occurring in loanwords from Greek denoting a group or unit comprising a certain number, sometimes of years: myriad; Olympiad; triad.
2. a suffix meaning “derived from,” “related to,” “associated with,” occurring in loanwords from Greek (dryad; oread) and in New Latin coinages on a Greek model (bromeliad; cycad).
3. a suffix used, on the model of Iliad, in the names of epics, speeches, etc., derived from proper names: Dunciad; jeremiad.
[< Greek -ad-, s. of -as]
-ad2 ,
var. of -ade1: ballad; salad.
-ad3 ,
a suffix used in anatomy to form adverbs from nouns signifying parts of the body, denoting a direction toward that part: ectad.
[< Latin ad toward, anomalously suffixed to the noun]
https://www.thefreedictionary.com/-ad

So, new candidate-entries are:

dragon-IADE leprechaun-IADE
dragon-IADA leprechaun-IADA
dragon-IAD leprechaun-IAD

and forgotten
dragon-IUM leprechaun-IUM

He learns not to learn and reverts to what all men pass by.

Thanks, wanna see more in the SAGA sense, as in the Iliad.

The most obvious thing I did not run, the wildcard search in 'Schizandrafield'...

Your 'Lemonade' got me thinking, why and when the 'i' is to be used, e.g. why not 'lemon-i-ade'?

Tomorrow will see why 'Robinson-i-ade' is not given as an alternative but only 'Robinsonade'!

Etymology
Borrowed from German Robinsonade, analyzable in English as Robinson +‎ -ade, named after fictional character Robinson Crusoe, from Daniel Defoe’s 1715 novel Robinson Crusoe.
Noun
robinsonade (plural robinsonades)
A genre of adventure fiction where a hero is stranded alone on a desert island and has to survive with his own wits.

https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/robinsonade#English

Oh, 'blockade' holds some insights...

blockade

From block +‎ -ade.

Noun

blockade (plural blockades)

1. The physical blocking or surrounding of a place, especially a port, in order to prevent commerce and traffic in or out.
2. (by extension) Any form of formal isolation of something, especially with the force of law or arms.
3. (nautical) The ships or other forces used to effect a naval blockade.
4. (chess) Preventing an opponent's pawn moving by placing a piece in front of it

Verb

blockade (third-person singular simple present blockades, present participle blockading, simple past and past participle blockaded)

1. (transitive) To create a blockade against.

https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/blockade#English

The verb usage makes me wonder what the 'dragonading' would mean!

Also, the next companion to 'blockade' is more suitable for examining:

tamponade

English
Etymology

From tampon +‎ -ade.
Noun

tamponade (plural tamponades)

1. (medicine) The use of a tampon.
2. (medicine) A stoppage in the flow of blood in a vessel, caused either by the insertion of a tampon or by outside constriction.

Verb

tamponade (third-person singular simple present tamponades, present participle tamponading, simple past and past participle tamponaded)

1. (medicine) To plug or stop with a tampon.

https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/tamponade#English

Didn't get your drift, yet 'cannonade' serves well, made me think how is called a barrage of shenanigans...

shenanigan-ade

As for the saga meaning, maybe shenanigan-i-ade.

There is a convention for this sort of composition.

The suffix would be "-iad", as in "Iliad", "shenaniganiad", or "Kamakiriad".

"Make it go away, Mrs Whatsit," he whispered. "Make it go away. It's evil."

As for 'iliad', forgot the adjective:
https://www.thefreedictionary.com/Iliadic

so, a new candidate:

dragon-IADic leprechaun-IADic

Oh, thanks for the "Kamakiriad", it sets a precedent by boldly going where no one dared, suffixing a Japanese word ( 螳螂 ) with a saga suffix.



"At the start of the record, the middle-aged narrator embarks on a cross-country trip in the car of the title (“kamakiri” is Japanese for “praying mantis”). The imaginary automobile moves slowly, runs on steam, and — as revealed in the opening track, “Trans-Island Skyway” — even has a bionic vegetable garden in the trunk."

It's confusing how -ad is sometimes seen as -ade and -ada, perhaps it is fully legit similarly to the suffix -dome vs -dom?

Soon, will explore all the variants of -fer/-ferous

-iferous
suffix forming adjectives
containing or yielding: carboniferous.
https://www.thefreedictionary.com/-iferous

I find 'yielding stars' very cool, made me come with the 'yielding dragons' counterpart, somehow a planet/realm giving births to dragons:

stelliferous (stɛˈlɪfərəs)
adj
(Astronomy) full of stars
[C16: from Latin stellifer star-bearing, from stella star; see -ferous]

https://www.thefreedictionary.com/Stelliferous

Just saw how Blameless - a fellow member, on OCN forum, who helped me several times with benchmarking - calls himself under his avatar: iconoclast.
Quite right since he methodically destroys faulty notions via thorough testing/analyses.
Immediately felt the huge gap in covering all variants of -clast:

English
Etymology
From Ancient Greek κλαστός (klastós, “broken”), verbal adjective of κλάω (kláō, “to break”).
Suffix
-clast
something that breaks or destroys.

https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/-clast#English

https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/iconoclastic#English
https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/iconoclasm

so, new candidates:

dragon-oclast leprechaun-oclast
dragon-oclasts leprechaun-oclasts
dragon-oclastic leprechaun-oclastic
dragon-oclasm leprechaun-oclasm
dragon-oclasms leprechaun-oclasms

So, Oxford has the adverb:

dragon-oclastically leprechaun-oclastically

Similar to -ad/-ade pair, here -clast/-claste pair exists:

Tired eyes and have to attend something, tomorrow will address the unacceptable gaps, such as 'iconophily':

Glancing at above list already prompts for several new additions...

Although spelled similarly, these are each very different suffixes from different sources.

By itself, the "-ad" or "iad" suffix comes from a Latin declension that indicates dative or genitive case, typically signified in English with a preposition such as "of" or "about". Thus, "Kamakiriad" is a succinct way of saying "all about Kamakiri" or "the saga of Kamakiri".

The suffix "-ada" is almost always derived from the perfect participle of a verb. Depending on whether it is borrowed directly from classical Latin or from a Latin-influenced language, this pattern can also be observed in words that end in "-ado", "-ato", "itti", etc.

Words that end in "-ade" could be derived from either meaning.


The suffixes "-dome" and "-dom" are also not necessarily synonymous. Sometimes they do refer to a domus, a home or homeland, yet other times the suffix "-dome" refers to a hemispherical shape.

Thank you leonAzul for clarifications, my ignorance led me to think they were interchangeable.

Last thing first, very glad to share revision 2 of Suffixes_Showdown_Booklet, now it is 322 suffixes strong!

Time for covering -fer/-ferous/-fic/-ger...

Wanted to use 'Luc-i-fer' as a blueprint, it is suitable, but poses some problems since it ends not in 'n', so 'horn/spin/carbon/column' come rescuing the situation:

OED:
-fic, suffix
repr. L. -ficus ‘-making, -doing’ (f. weakened root of facĕre to make, do), forming adjs. (1) from ns., with the sense ‘making, causing, producing’, as in honōrificus, pācificus, or ‘performing’, as sacrificus; (2) from adjs., with the sense ‘performing actions of a certain kind’, as magnificus, also (in late and med.L.) with the sense ‘bringing into a specified state’, as beātificus; (3) from vbs., with the sense ‘causing to’, as horrificus, terrificus; (4) from advbs., only in beneficus, maleficus, adjs. of agency to the phrases bene, male facere to do good, do ill (to). Except in the two last-mentioned words, and in venēficus (contr. for *venēnificus), the suffix -ficus is always preceded by -i-, which is either the stem-vowel or a substitute for it, or a connecting-vowel appended to a consonant-stem. Most of the L. adjs. in -(i)ficus appear in Fr., the termination being adapted as -(i)fique; also in It., Sp., Pg., the form being -fico. In Eng. the suffix prob. first occurred in adoptions from Fr., like magnific, and was often spelt -(i)fique down to the 17th c. In mediæval and mod.L. new formations with -(i)ficus were very common, and many of them have passed, in adapted forms, into the Rom. langs. and Eng., as prolific, scientific. In scientific nomenclature new words are still sometimes formed by the addition of the representative of -(i)ficus to L. stems; such words, if accepted at all, are usually of international currency, and it is often uncertain in which lang. they were first used; Eng. examples are acidific, chylific, felicific, morbific.
Several L. adjs. in -ficus form their comparatives and superlatives, and their nouns of quality, from a stem in -ficent-. In Eng. (but not in Romanic) the adapted forms of these words end in -ficent, as beneficent, magnificent, maleficent, munificent.


corn-i-fic
corn-i-gerous
corn-i-ger

cornific, a. rare—0.
[f. L. cornū horn + -fic.]
Producing horns or horn.

cornigerous, a.
[f. L. corniger horn-bearing (f. cornū horn + -ger bearing) + -ous.]
Bearing or having horns, horned; producing horn or horny substance.

It took me some time to find a sisterword of 'Lucifer', talking about -ger (in sense of PRODUCING):
Did find it within OED's 'horn' entry:

b.VI.28.b objective and obj. gen., as horn-bearer, horn-blower, horn-blowing, horn-player. c.VI.28.c similative, as horn-like, horn-shaped adjs. d.VI.28.d instrumental and locative, as horn-bind vb., horn-crested, horn-pushing, horn-yoked adjs.
1483 Cath. Angl. 188/2 An *Horne berer, corniger.

spin-i-gerous
spin-i-ger
spin-i-ferous

spinigerous, a.
[f. L. spīniger spine-bearing.]
1.1 Ent. (See quot.)
1826 Kirby & Sp. Entomol. IV. xlvi. 333 Spinigerous,‥when the Coleoptra have a spine common to them both.
2.2 Bot. and Zool. = spiniferous a.


OED:
carbon-i-ferous
carbon-i-genous
column-i-fer
column-i-ferous
carbon-i-zable
carbon-i-zer

carbonigenous, a.
[f. L. carbōn-em + -genus born, bearing + -ous.]
Producing or developing carbon.

columniferous, a.
[f. L. {columnifer} column-bearing + -ous.]
Bearing a column or columns. In Bot. cf. column 7.
1730–6 Bailey (folio), Columniferous, bearing or supporting pillars.    1794 Martyn Rousseau's Bot. xxiv. 330 From the circumstance of the receptacle standing up in the middle of the flower, like a column, these have also the name of columniferous plants.

carbonizable, a.
[f. carbonize v. + -able.]
That can be carbonized.
1883 Brit. Pat. 5978, Carbonisable material in a plastic or semi-liquid state.

carbonizer
[f. carbonize v. + -er1.]
One who or that which carbonizes.


Thus,
dragon-i-fic leprechaun-i-fic
dragon-i-gerous leprechaun-i-gerous
dragon-i-ger leprechaun-i-ger
dragon-i-ferous leprechaun-i-ferous
dragon-i-genous leprechaun-i-genous
dragon-i-zable leprechaun-i-zable
dragon-i-zer leprechaun-i-zer

Time for OED exhaustive coverage of icon* entries...

Digging deep won't cease to amaze me how productive is.
For example, taking my time to see how θ(theta) vs τ(tau) were overlapped in -tropy vs -anthropy words.

The -o- and -i- infixes still confuse me, don't know whether they are optional or not, for example, icon-o-tropy vs DRAGON-TROPY (that is, DRAGON-O-TROPY)?!
To further obfuscate the matter, as it can be seen in the example below, those concatenations can be -e-/-io-/-o-:
selenetropic
selenotropic
seleniotropic

Taking on the OED output one-by-one:

OED:
icon-o-tropy ([f. Gr. εἰκών, εἰκον- icon + τροπή a turn, turning: cf. trope.] )

[&oed_&] [&_icono&] OED_0,000,003_iconotropic /Schizandrafield_Corpus_revision_C_(44-corpora_788068084_distinct-words).sorted/ /KazahanaORIG.txt/

Another similar word is OED's entry 'selenotropic':

selenotropic, a. Bot.
Also selene-, selenio-.
[f. Gr. σελήν-η moon + -τροπος turning + -ic, after F. sélénetropique (sic: Ch. Musset, 1883).]
Bending or turning under the influence of moonlight. So seleˈnotropism (Musset sélénetropisme), seleˈ{notropy}.
1883 Times 27 Mar. 3/4 Such movements of plants in moonlight M. Musset proposes to call selenetropic.
1883 Nat. Educ. XXIV. No. 6. 6 The branches almost immediately became curved toward the moon. The author [C. Musset] applies the name selenotropy to these motions.
1884 Hardwicke's Sci. Gossip XX. 64 The stalks at once grew seleniotropic, that is, they turned towards and followed the moonlight.


Wonder why OED didn't cover the rest derivatives, as already in the roster (had to place the infix 'o', though, done in the new revision):

[contr. for icononomatic, f. Gr. εἰκών, εἰκονο- icon + ὄνοµα, ὀνοµατ- name + -ic.]
A word proposed to describe a stage intermediate between picture-writing and phonetic writing, in which pictures or representations of objects stand not for the objects themselves, but for their names considered merely as phonetic elements, as in a pictorial rebus, or the use made by the Chinese of the sounds of their characters to express the sound of a foreign word. Hence iconoˈmatically adv.; iconoˈmaticism; iconomaˈtography.

Ephiliates was right when said "You are wrong Leonidas", hee-hee, love how Xerxes was portrayed (especially the voice) as ... Satanidas.

- Your gods were cruel to shape you so, friend Ephialtes.
The Spartans, too...
...were cruel to reject you.
But I am kind.
Everything you could ever desire...
...every happiness you can imagine...
...every pleasure your fellow Greeks and your false gods have denied you...
...I will grant you.
For I am kind.
Embrace me as your king and as your god.

- Yes.

- Lead my soldiers to the hidden path that enters behind the cursed Spartans...
...and your joys will be endless.


- Yes! I want it all.

- Wealth. Women.

- And one more thing...
...I want a uniform.

- Done.
You will find...
...I am kind.
Unlike the cruel Leonidas, who demanded that you stand...
...I require only...
...that you kneel.
