    Capital City and Tea Theme vote!

    The vote to use a Theme when naming our cities has passed overwhelmingly (54% to 8% - with 38% not caring)

    Now we need to choose a Theme!
    So far, the "Tea Theme" idea has recived major acclaim. This poll is to ratify that notion, or else send us back to the drawing board.

    However, before this poll is over, we're going to probably need a name for our capital city.

    So far, Inner Sanctum has accumulated the most support - 4 votes – (General_W, azzaman333, Ronnie1, Whomp) – but doen't really fit with the Tea Theme.

    So here are your voting options:
    1. Capitol: Inner Sanctum. Tea Theme for the Rest
    2. Tea Theme all the way – including the Capital
    3. Capitol: Inner Sanctum – and find a new theme for the rest.
    4. No Inner Sanctum! No Tea Theme! Pick something else!

    This is a public poll and will be open for 2 days.

    Here's a list of Tea Theme names that have been suggested so far.
    Note that some of these are too long. I believe the max city name length is 15 characters.
    Suggested names that are too long are noted below in italics.


    Emerald Tips
    Jade Dew
    Chun Mee Eyebrow
    Dragonwell Lung
    Curled Dragon Silver Tip
    Imperial Silver Needle
    Peach Blossom
    Heavenly Blue Peak
    White Peony
    Silver Needle
    Drum Mountain White Cloud
    Lapsang Souchong
    Jasmine Pearls
    Litchee Pearls
    Orchid Oolong
    Ti Kuan Yin
    Single Trunk Oolong
    Imperial Gold Oolong
    Orange Blossom, Monk's Celebration
    Golden Gunpowder Black Tea
    Chatham Lookout
    Little Buddha
    Bird's Tongue
    Green Snow Bud
    Black River Mountain
    Camel's Breath
    Imperial Pu-erh
    Eight Immortals
    Hairy Crab
    Snow Pear Oolong
    Source Mountain
    Golden Monkey


    I believe the team consensus is to stick with a theme, but modify it based on the city purpose and/or surrounding terrain.

    Some of the above names lend themselves to that very naturally…
    Jade Dew - could be excellent for a city in the Jungle.
    Snow Pear Oolong - for a tundra city
    Source Mountain – for a mountain by a river
    Jasmine Pearls – for a coastal city with clams?
    Green Snow Bud – A city with mountains and lots of grassland?
    Eight Immortals – Maybe change to Three Immortals – and use for our holy city or Capital?

    Just trying to illustrate how I think this could be done.

    For those of you voting for "Tea Theme All the Way"

    Please suggest Tea related names for our capital! :salute:

    Maybe "Eight Three Immortals" for the capital? :)

    "Three Immortals" is awesome as capital name, especially as it fits well with Triple Ninja stuff theme. :)

    You just convinced me to vote for pure Tea Theme rather than Inner Sanctum+Tea.

    If the save comes up - just go with the current vote leader here. :salute:

    I think "Three Immortals" is a pretty cool Capital City name... so I'm fine with however the vote comes out.

    P.S. But I still think "Inner Sanctum" is best :D

    I like the "three immortals", but I'm tepid about the tea theme, it's okay if we go with it (and I don't have any better ideas..), I won't mind, I'm just not terribly excited about it.

    Everyone should note that I only spent two short sessions looking up a few tea names as possible examples. Now that we have settled in with the tea theme I'm happy to research more names as needed.

    I'm also fine with Three Immortals as the Capital.

    A few more tea names to add to the list:

    Sunburst
    Chamomile Citrus
    Leaves of Provence
    Thousand Days Red Jasmine
    Jade Pagoda <--any place with a lot variation in elevation.
    Bleu Peacock
    Monkey Picked
    Jade Butterfly
    Dragon Tears <--mountain river
    Longing Heart
    Monkey Paw
    Emerald Mist
    Wild Amber Oolong <--copper city?
    Black Pearl <--oil city (in Alaska we call this "Black Gold")


    Also, ships are good to name I feel, and I'll suggest constellations as a theme for them. Though that's a long time off at this point.

    And now back to my tea..... :coffee:

    Okay the poll was tea theme 10:1 and we have a long list of tea related names, yet our second city is now called Copper Kettle. I sugest we change it to anything else mentioned in this thread. I guess Wild Amber Ooolong is as good as any other. (No, you don't have to spell it with three o's :().

    We agreed to a tea theme sure, but that doesn't mean that all names of cities would be names of particular plantations, for instance. One problem with Wild Amber Oolong is that it is too long for a settlement name.

    :yup: That's exactly right, dear Shogun.

    We don't want to place the burden of interpretation on you. Orders are official when they're posted for you in the Turn Orders thread. :salute:
