    Needs:

    We have an Unnamed Axeman wandering around, desperate for a name.

    -What are our thoughts about something around Carniverous Kitty, Sharp Tooth, or Pouncing Pu ssy, or is that too silly?

    -The city the barbs have built for us, does everyone like Point Defiance? any other ideas?

    Edit: Weird, the forum is blocking P U SS Y:confused:

    :lol: - yeah… I think we should probably stay away from any potential double entendres for our unit names ;) - Sharp Tooth is good… I think that was the name of the T-Rex in Land Before time though… yes, I'm a nerd.
    What about Dark Puma II ?

    Also – I hunted through the threads and figured out that the game must have a 15 Character limit on our city names. That ruled out quite a few of my proposed suggestions – so I've modified the whole list.

    Since I didn't get any other feedback – I just went ahead and slapped my proposed names on the map.

    This is, of course, the Minister of Nomenclature's decision – and I'll be happy to edit any of this that he'd like.

    In the meantime – I hope this helps everyone (especially our dear president) start to get more familiar with the names our cities are ultimately likely to be named. (so there's no confusion with switching from Code Names :) ) I also tried to keep each name distinct, to minimize any possibility of confusion about which city we're talking about.

    I also tried to stick with the theme we're developing as a team, and also combine some attribute of the city location into the name, to aid in ease of memory. Some of these references are pretty obscure (Like 'Argyle' referring to the largest diamond mine in the world in the name of our Gem heavy location on the coast) but others should be quite a bit more obvious.

    Current Cities:
    Epsilon Eridani
    Sunset Fortress
    Immortal Keep
    Eternal Eye
    Port of Mists

    New City Names
    (And the code name location they are replacing…)
    • Overlook Bay (Clam Cove)
    • Point Defiance (wool & Whales)
    • Sunrise Citadel (East Gate)
    • Mighty Bulwark (Jungle Iron Works)
    • Argyle's Watch (Gem Slave mines)
    • Icy Redoubt (Frozen Iron)
    • Scion City (One Horse Town)
    • Mystic Hills – Sanctuary West (14)

    And here's a map with all those names on it:


    Any comments this time around? :)

    As an Honour for Dark Puma I would Propose changing

    Point Defiance to "Puma Point" or "Dark Point" :)

    But it really doesn't matter to me.

    Should we implement a Categorical system for naming Seige weapons? We currently have 2 catapults that remain unnamed.

    I kind of like the idea of naming tham after emotions:

    Fear
    Malice
    Spite
    Anger
    Melancholy

    ...you get the idea ;)

    Oooh!!!! :)

    Crushing Fear,
    Impending Doom,
    Blinding Anxiety,
    Debilitating Melancholy,
    Crushing Force

    Anyone have preferences for what our existing Catapults should be called? If not, the Minister of Defense will choose a couple names from these lists next turn :salute:

    Yeah - I've been bad about the naming stuff as well. I formally apologize for letting 4 Macemen come out without names.

    Not that I have any great suggestions :crazyeye:

    Could I get a list of all the units that need to be named?

    I think I'll put together a list of adjectives and a list of possible names, and Memphis can simply mix and match.

    For example:

    Adjectives:
    Happy
    Smart
    Phony

    Names:
    Eagle
    Cardinal
    Owl

    Then Memphis could get the following names:
    Happy Owl, Smart Cardinal, Phony Eagle, Phony Owl, etc.

    Some other adjectives to throw around:
    Thrifty
    Crafty
    Wizened
    Virtuous
    Noble
    Clever
    Sharp
    Icy
    Lazy
    Gazing
    ...

    I personally feel the name 'International Tractor' is a very good name.

    We need some names for the workers, because it is getting hard to say which worker is which when I make some orders.

    I'd like to name our newly liberated barbarian city Dune, since it is built on a desert tile and supplies us with spice.
