Traal has several meanings including that a name for one of the worlds moons, and also amonth of the year.
Traal is the fifth moon of Tyragon. Because of its position and rotation, it is seen only as a crescent.
Traal is one of the months of the year.
Mentions a moon named Thal (as mentioned in Thall III) (plus references to possibly more than one sun). The game also seems to go with the idea of there being 'the moon' a single moon of the planet Taragon. Thus Thal is apparently a name for that moon.
Behind the sceneEdit
Depending on the game or source the world of Shadowgate is known as Tarkus (classic Shadowgate) or Tyragon (Before Shadowgate), although sometimes simply referred to as 'earth'. Likewise the world is described as having only a single moon, 'the moon', although Before Shadowgate establishes it has having five moons. Shadowgate 64 refers to 'Traal' but in regards to being one of the months of the year along with Aries.
