    :lol: I really don't know how that would work out.... since it's just text that gets displayed in-game :hmm:

    Let's see how yours works out (likely it's better than mine!)

    So I'd be The Goddess of Simplicity, leader of the http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/isis:D. My fellow Ancient Believers and I are proud members of The Fifth Dynasty

    haha, I'm not a big fan of the Egyptian thing but I like this one!

    Maybe instead of Analyst we could do Senior Director, Chairman, or Supervisor?

    Guys - we need to keep this discussion moving. Only a couple of suggestions have been offered, and none of them seem to be fitting well with our team's personality.

    I'll try and think of some others throughout the day :coffee:

    I still like ISIS, short and catchy.

    Other suggestions:
    Deep impact
    Peaceful warriors
    Cat (for Catastrophe of Catalysis)

    I agree we need a team name. I guess we are with about 20 member so we won't find a name that will satisfy everybody. How do we get an wide supported name?

    My personal inclination is still to go with ISIS, but the institutional interpretation, rather than the Egyptian one.

    But a thought occurs to me - the goddess of simplicity inspired that first Isis. :hmm:

    We don't must make this decision now. In C4 you can allways change your name etc.

    Perhaps we should decide first our wish, more SF, more Antik or fantastic?
    I can live with any name.

    We have until Monday to decide the Team Name and Leader.

    It would be nice if we could also arrive at the civ names; but, as HUSch notes, it is not necessary.

    I had an idea, what if we did a theme where we name cities based off of those in comics? For example, our capital is Metropolis and our main production/commerce city is Gotham City and we use that as our theme?

    I don't know what civilization that would make us but I think thats a good theme to relate too and it can play well into city names and such.

    :D

    Interesting. It might also do a bit of misleading other teams (as my preference would be to not be disorganized at all).

    I like this a lot! It gives us a rich source to draw from - we can name workers and soldiers after different characters... It's a great idea.

    Team Name: Marvel [other ideas??]
    Leader: Supreme Animator
    Civ Description: Comical Realm
    Short Description: Comics
    Civ Adjective: Heroes

    I'm not to much into comics.

    Also not economics, but inspired by current crisis:

    Team Name: [Crisis Managers]
    Leader: [Alan Greenspan]
    Civ Description: [Wallstreet stock exchange]
    Short Description: [Wallstreet]
    Civ Adjective: [Trader]

    =>

    Alan Greenspan, leader of the Wallstreet stock exchange. My fellow Trader citizens and I are proud members of Wallstreet.

    I also really like the whole superheros idea it opens up the floor to alot of creativity and comic relief i mean we could just start nameing cities after superheros Spidermandia or something, sorry i know its a horrible example and I probablt turned 5 people off the idea but spider-man is definatly the best
