    This can take a lot of discussion so I thought we could come up with some creative city names.

    I don't like SANCTA city. How about our first cities are called

    1. Super
    2. Awesome
    3. Ninja
    4. Cult
    5. Tripple
    6. Alliance
    Those were along the SANCTA line. Here are the ones I like.

    2. Lookout Below
    3. Did you see that?
    4. What am I licking?
    5. Underpants city
    6. Cosmic Laser Gun
    7. MINE!! (Showing ownership)
    8. Have you seen Jeff?

    Cool names. Do they have a common thread or are they just phrases you like? We do need to figure out how we want to name our cities. Not sure they have to be related to SANCTA but others will probably hit those notes.

    I haven't given this any thought and will return here when I have some ideas. Good call, Remake.

    Inner Sanctum is fine, but if not enough people like it, how about "The Capital" or "Nexus"?

    I think we should be focusing on naming conventions instead of individual names. This would provide our nation more flavor and a distinct feel.

    For example, Chess could be our theme: Queen's Gambit, Two Knights Defense, En passant, Alekhine's gun, Bad bishop, etc.

    My personal suggestion would be Tea: Emerald Tips, Jade Dew, Chun Mee Eyebrow, Dragonwell Lung, Curled Dragon Silver Tip, Imperial Silver Needle, Peach Blossom, etc.

    Theme first. That's my vote. We should also discuss if we want to name our units. Workers, boats, and attached generals should all have a names in my opinion (as they all have long time horizons).

    Why do we have to have a theme. Don't you think tha "Tea" theme is a little peaceful.

    Themes are fun! I always try to have some sort of theme behind my city names.

    Personally, I think Tea could have a sort of mystical feel behind the names. Being SANTCA, I think a mystical-y feel would be good, so personally I'm not against it.

    I agree, the Tea naming system is fun and pretty clever!

    Great suggestion Karhu!

    I love the tea names.

    You seem to know some good ones... want to post a few more for us? :)

    I completely support going with a theme - and Karhu's tea theme is my favourite so far. :)

    I happen to like themes, too - I think it makes it easier to relate, and I think over-the-top propaganda (which I think is one of more fun aspects of the game) is easier to come up with themes - make puns on the names.

    I sort of like the idea of naming workers after team members (I just want to be the one to mine gold ;) Or, we can name them after famous ninja/assassins from history and/or literature.

    Ships we could name after famous ships from whatever civ we start with.

    I like the tea theme. Another possibility is to name cities after famous ninja's/assassin's (say, Hattori Hanzo's Citadel for the Capitol) or The Turtle Den (teenage ninja mutant turtles, obviously) or Hasan's Stronghold (after the leader of the original Hashshashin)
