WIP map is waiting for names
« on: 11 July 2011, 11:45:48 »
The map Im working on is missing names for the settlements. The design for the map was created spontaneous without any geographical reference in the real world and now I want you to give names to the settlemts of this map.

The map (with seafaring) consists of a large town, a small village, two counting houses and two overseas trade offices.
Screenshot will be added to give you an Idea how it looks.

So please feel free to post your suggestions. The runeforge team will choose the cutest names then.

Dear kinver, please dont hijack this thread  :)
 Its only for the naming, not for speculations about to few building places (and btw the map has enough building places, Ive played it several times  :P ).

Interesting...

Since the map isn't based on anything in particular I will throw out some names from towns in games that have stuck with me.

From Quest for Glory:

Spielberg, Silmaria and Shapeir

From Ultima:

Yew, Trinsic, Vesper

Of course, I don't know if you can use names from other games.  If not, just ignore these suggestions (and me).

The small village should be named Doodlidoo. The City, Mamchuck.
Counting houses: Rising Sun & Nuthouse
Overseas trade offices: Gorgonzola grove & Bay of Saints


EDIT: I'd love to betatest the map! I'm free for the next 2 weeks and I plan to play the crap out of this game. Every day. Wont even shower.

Just randomly name them something that sounds similar to other towns and meshes well with the game, like Burghard and Saufen and the counting houses of...

I think you should use Runeforger's name.
Otherwise...
Town: Silvsefork/ Huntsahrk
Village: Spakmusel/ Peralserf
counting houses: Riverinner, Tai-Gong
overseas trade offices: Hoe-Aen, Koopa-Koonta, Shellock
Should the names be European, I prefer some foreign name.

Here's my names:

Town: Mandur
Village: Sourien (how the fruit durian "http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Durian" is pronounced in Vietnamese)

Counting houses: Durian (recycling names :D), Elba
Trade offices: Mazzinga, Colonna

Extras: Irashai (I think it's the abbreviation of irashaimasu which means "welcome in Japanese:)

You could name the big town "Khorinis". It reminds me of the town Khorinis, from Gothic 2.
