    Ya it really does sound good. It takes me forever to come up with good city names that I won't change my mind on the next turn.

    I woulda gone 'Regia Doughnutia' for the latin (Regia is latin for city)... Alternatively, Regia Fanatica* would work well on that subject...

    you could use the boring naming convention that i used in my last game, my capital begins with A, my second with B etc it made micromanagement and identification so much easier (alternatively if i'm not feeling creative my cities are just called A,B,C etc etc apart from the captured cities)

    Wasn't the latin for a city/town "urb***" (i forgot the declination model). Just a memory from my latin classes (let the classical education of the Collège des Jésuites be blessed forever!).

    Geek mode on.
    Although Urbs/Urbis is the literal word for city, Regia meaning royal (particularly a dwelling) was also used in poetry to mean the capital or royal city.

    Congrats on your 300th post, Fier Canadien! I thought something looked different. :)

    Also, Shaitan convinced me.....I think we should keep the name Noshuret.

    This all goes to show that I am the most uncreative namer in the history of the Democracy Game.
