We need help choosing a name for this new world!

Please vote in the above poll and choose the one which you find most appealing.

Keep in mind this will be the name for the whole new world which is now being developed by a team of people previously associated with Dysotopia. This new world will contain at least two distinct modules, each with its own unique land-areas, and with some kind of bridge between those modules to form one cohesive world in-game. This poll is to choose the name of this cohesive world.

We are NOT planning to take user submissions for world names at this time, due to time constraints. However, if there is a world name that you really think is worthy of consideration, please do post it. Unless it wins a lot of support within the forum, however, we will probably not retake a vote.

Vote! The winner of this poll will in all likelihood become the name of the New World!

Fooz

PS: Vote! Just replying and naming your favorite one will not count towards the poll results. You must vote on the above poll if you want your vote to be counted!

Well I can safely say that I don't like Har-Rhun because it sounds like a cheap ass version of Faerun. Now, Cobar Arulean actually sounds really interesting. I voted for that one because its got a nice ring to it, good syllables, and a definition that brings wonder to your mind. Yonder sounds like a dumbass southerner, Mystica sounds like about twenty other mods out there, and tuskan archipel... well I dunno... I just don't like the name Tuskan for some reason. Tonal sounds like toe nail, Enteril sounds like it might be cool if you twisted it around with some other word, and finally, Far Shores just sounds like a dumbass movie title.

Everyone should vote Cobar Arulean.

The "None of the above" selection is made by .. not making one?

Seriously, if you have a good suggestion feel free to proffer it up, but no guarantees ... we are eager to get a name established soon.

Well my thing is they are all so... harsh... gutteral, full of constants. Let me see if I can come up with something. But whatever it is... it should have meaning.

Hmm... should it not read Archipelago for a collection of islands? I voted Har-Rhun but it should also be noted that Rhun is the large eastern region in Middle Earth...

Heh, that would only cause conflict if it were not located in the Forgotten Realms.

Let's call it Thargelion? That's a nice name.

You guys need to think about what is easy and cool to say. Remember Dyso?

"I'ma play some Dyso"
Yep, easy and cool to say.

"I'ma play some Har"
Blerhg! Now that didn't sound cool.

"I'ma play some Tuskan"
Yep, that's the only one that fits enough of the given choices.


Think about it...

hmmm I used simple "First thoughts" for each city and here's what I came up with: (if ya even care icon_eek.gif)

Tuskan Archipel = Some new type of Star Wars Tuskan Raiders
Mystica = Sounds like a new Gangstra Rapper
Yonder = "Yes over there Sonny in them Yonder fields"
Enteril = Yuck! Entrails (colon anyone?)
Far Shores = *in valley girl voice* "For Sure"
Tonal = "What I can't hear you? I'm going Tonal"
Cobar Arulean ===== Sounds Intrigueing. **WINNER**
Har-Rhun "Dude I was getting busy with her, and I went on a Hair Run icon_cool.gif "

Kindo brings up an excellent point. You need to think of it from many different aspects. Cobar Arulean sounds the best so far.

But what about Falko? It could be ruled by King Amadeus.

Cobar Arulean is a cool name.
"I'ma play some Cobar."

Hmm... Still think Tuskan is best on that point. Dyso truly is the best, though.

Tuskan will remain, Kind. The name we're voting on will be the Mother-name for both of the daughter-MOD's.

Or something like that.

Rock me Amadeus.

Yes, and look at the choices. Tuskan is there as Tuskan Archipel.  Reply with quote

Er.....yes....I knew that...... icon_redface.gif

I don't think the World Name should share a name with one of the 2 MOD's though, simple as that.

Think what you like. When it comes to saying the name, of the choices given above, Tuskan sounds the best.  Reply with quote

I'm gonna have to go ahead and disagree with you there, Kindo. Like Darkshadow said, reminds me of Star Wars.

Cobar Arulean is the best-sounding one there that is also the only truly original one.

Har-Rhun is Elvish for "southeast." Nothing terribly difficult about it.

It's also the one I am using regardless ... heh ... so ... :: shrugs ::

Does it matter if we vote sounds like Har-Rhun has already been picked.
