I'll second that.
Everyone ok with Knight-Dragon as our first Axe?
Don't you mean IglooDude?
Or did I miss a warrior?
Yup! I believe IglooDude is currently garrison in Lana. He was whipped out to back-up Plotinus in Mantra when it was being threatened by a Barb recently.
How are we going to name units one we have run out of moderators?
That IS coming up soon. I suppose there are two ways we could go: Prominent CivFanatics members, and Team CivFanatics members.
Unless we have other suggestions?
We have an existing city without a city name. Here is a list we came up with awhile ago.
Recently though we've been finding appropriate Sanskrit words rather than going off this list. We have another settler finishing in a couple turns, so we should figure out the name for that city, too.
We also have three unnamed Axemen and an unnamed Fast Worker. Knight-Dragon, leif erikson and Methos should be our Axe names. Any suggestions for our Fast Worker?
Zighra and Dvita sound nice - Dvita ("second") would also throw off anyone trying to interpret the meaning of our city names.
I definetly like the Sanskrit theme and want to continue that. I also think the Hindi and Tibeten words are in line with this.
Ooty seems to have a famous Indian racecourse.
I like Ooty. Short and memorable
Although Marwari horse breed is the most famous Indian horse-related thing that Google shows. It must be specific to India horse breed.
Here is a list of the Indian national Horse shows by years:
st 16th March 2000 Dundlod (Raj)
2nd 23rd March 2001 Balotra (Raj)
3rd 14th April 2002 Dundlod (Raj )
4th 7th January 2003 Porbandar (Guj)
5th 18th January 2004 Jaipur (Raj)
6th 20th March 2007 Dundlod (Raj)
7th 13th December 2009 Dundlod (Raj)
Looks like Raj is the region most related to horses in India? And it is even shorter and memorable than Ooty
Hmm, of course there's always Jodhpur but that might be a little obvious that it means we've got horses. ("Jodhpurs" are also riding trousers)
Hi, this is completely unrelated to a horse theme, but I think "Lakshmi" would be a nice Indian word to use as city name at some point. It is popular, obviously Indian, easy to remember and commonly translated as "goddess". It has also other nice associations (wikipedia):
Wouldn't we want such a patron for one of our cities?
LOL, I knew this Lakshmi name sounds familiar with me and just checked. Lakshmi Mittal is one of the wealthiest man on Earth. He happened to buy a Steel producing company in Bulgaria and then led it to bankrupt to squeeze the last euro out of it before run away back to India and then they closed doors leaving some 10000 unemployed on the streets
The Goddess could be good patron I think. The example with Mittal only confirms that it brings money to those who have its name. (Damn RB who took away Hinduism from us!!!)
Hi 2metra, I am glad you support seeking goddess Lakshmi good graces for one of our cities Lol on Lakshmi Mittal example, the guy is indeed very famous currently because of his , but the name is typically used for females. And it seems that his goddess-patron served Lakshmi Mittal well ;-)
It might freak the other teams out, as they'd probably make the Mittal connection and think we had iron working.
Very good one LOL!
Only thing which may make it not much funny for us is if we found an iron source under our city if we found it on the plain hill
If we're gonna be sending a chariot to RB, is there gonna be some special name for it? I kinda want to answer the Welcome Wagon somehow.
Maybe, if we want to keep the named-after-members thing, it'll be Ambassador Whoever-is-our-ambassador? Caledorn, is it?
Separate names with a comma.
