Funny how names carry associations. Having read this I shall now not see theorbtwo without thinking of Palantirs (yes, I can't really claim to be a geek but I do like the Lord of the Rings). But in the past whenever I've seen Theorbtwo in the CB or wherever, I've always thought of a theorbo, which is an early stringed instrument like a large lute. Now, this tells you more about me than about The Orb... but it might add a new layer of significance to an already multi-layered name. So here's some information about theorboes.

    My guess seeing the name, and especially seeing it spelled out as The Orb, was a possible reference to the Orb that circles the head of the Emperor of Dragaera.

      Mmmmm...     Brust!
