    There seems to be some disagreement about which island should be Iceland and which should be Greenland. So, which should it be? Should Iceland be the large, green island or the small, icy one? Should Greenland be large and green or small and covered with Tundra? Discuss! :D

    Greenland is the big green one! Iceland is the small, icy one! It's realy not that difficult. :)

    I second that. :) Why should they be named totally unlogically the opposite of what they are?

    While I enjoy irony as much as the next person, I feel that naming these bodies of land against their most prominent features will only add confusion. This has already been proven several times in the past.

    So for my two cents: Greenland should be green, and Iceland should be icy.

    Just to provide some opposition and to create confusion and irony, I think we should name the large green island Iceland, and the small green one Greenland. :D

    Although that is how they are named in RL (if you don't think of the size), I don't think they should be named that way in this game.

    A teacher of mine once suggested that Iceland was called Iceland to keep tourists away from its nice scenery. Greenland was called that to encourge/sucker tourists to visit!

    ravensfire: If you replace the word tourists with settlers, I think you have the reason for their names. :)

    How can you invade islands that are so sparsely populated?
