Tuairim -> Bachram

This is just a minor thing, but apparantly overseas the power that can be used to keep the Sluagh in check wasn't called Bachram, but was something like "Tuairim".

I wonder why this was changed.

Also, a certain part of the mini-Storyline wasn't really... changed to accomodate this localization difference.

Look at these choices:

Obviously the correct choice was what you just learned about previously, "Bachram".
But the wrong answers are... not even close to Bachram.
The wrong answers are much easier to mix up with what Bachram used to be called: "Tuairim".

I wonder why this was changed.
Maybe just because it's easier to say?
Because of the alliteration of "Bachram Boost"?

But I wonder why the wrong answers weren't changed as well.

    It was probably changed because Bachram just sounds more powerful and more positive in comparison to Tuairim, it also isn't too blatantly Gael, and yeah, probably for the alliteration. Though you're right, I was wondering where on earth those other dialogue options came from and that's really silly that they overlooked it so poorly. (I mean I also counted 4 typos in the dialogue but eh, nexon.)

    Minor Education time. Tuairim (would be "Twah-rum" approximately, its not too hard but its still an odd word.) means to have your own thoughts (an Opinion).
    In the sense of Mabinogi, it could represent accepting the Sluagh as part of yourself while still having control over how you feel, and not letting the Sluagh overpower you.
    Bachram means something along the lines of "playfulness/rambunctiousness", its essentially more of an opposite to Sluagh than Tuairim is. It's a little more "obvious" than Tuairim in its intentions.

    Here's two more fun read those those interested in Sluaghs. Link1 Link2
    Slaughs are considered the worst of all the fairy Folks, and are associated with the Wild Hunt of Samhain (Halloween).

    *Another thing to point out is that its not uncommon to see the same subject referred to as both a Ghost and a Fairy. This is mostly due to religious influences on that culture, altering the stories to how they prefer them to be viewed.
