    Great, renamed Delhi to Lokapara. Also went through and named all our newer units:

    I was at Steph when I got to one of the defenders inside Hansa, so I skipped to Whomp and used Steph for some other unit somewhere.

    "Mansa's Muse":lol: I just got it :blush:... They are mocking us.

    Mansa's Muse as in "This is the city where we get inside CFC's mind and read their thoughts and beat them to all the things they wanted to get... Hinduism, SH, TGW"

    Sorry if someone pointed this out already... I just thought it was funny... Not Ha-ha funny... More like :sad: funny hehe.

    I thought that it was named after one of their previous RB game write ups (of course it's probably also meant as a jab at us).

    It is, but I think that game was called Mao's Muse, and that they have renamed it to poke fun at us?

    They've had several Adventures (similar to CFC's GOTM's) named "_____'s Muse". They focus on that leader's specialties. Mansa's Muse was about money somehow. I think they originally picked the name because this is their Gold city. It's annoying that this city is the same one that has thwarted a couple of our plans, since they're probably getting a good chuckle from that.

    When we capture this city, we should rename it "Pacal's Folly" or something to that affect.

    We could call it Pacal's Pyrotechnics, allow them to recapture it, than raze it. :mischief:

    Would it be overly confident to name our marble city "Mahal"?

    I would only do that if we leave it unnamed until after Taj completes

    Named the new marble city Barah. May sounds as "Barrack", but actually it means "12" in Hindi.

    And end of an epoch starts with it :)

    Looking at the latest screenshots, I noticed that we settled our pig-iron city, and it needs to be named in-game. I prefer to continue following a Hindi / Sanskrit naming theme, but there had been support for naming it Pig Iron. What does the rest of the team think?

    I would also prefer to keep to the theme we've followed so far. :)

    Pigiron is so common and plain. Lets keep them mysterious.

    We should continue to follow using Sanskrit names. So perhaps we should name it victory or revenge in Sanskrit.

    We now have 2 cities with their game-assigned names; Delhi and Bombay. We need to finalize names for these! Bombay was recently settled on the Spanish border north of Bono and Abhi, and it contains Cows and 1 Floodplains in it's borders.

    Do you think that the other teams broke our code of naming yet?
