Name That City! :D 01/11/2021

by Joe

It’s that time again! The machine base needs a name :D

Please comment, tweet, message, email, etc. what you think the base should be called! I’ll pick my 3-4 favourites then put up a poll for you guys to vote on. Can’t wait to see what you all come up with! You’re always so much better at naming things than I am :D

Enjoy Scene 26 – “Welcome to 1-1-72-3”!

As the tension in the machine city rises, the tension in New Hammerstone resolves.
I assume Cash just went out to play with the kids, there is nothing ominous about him at all!
I suggest Haven as a City name.

New Sivia. Shortened from Silicon Valley. It’s been long enough after the fall that Silicon Valley is remembered not as the seat of consumer technologies, but a forgotten region mythicised with the rise of the machines.

@Justinwya that sounds like a pretty cool idea for a name! And also, planet 1? Then again, would make sense that the machines would be thinking about or have started colonizing other planets.

Following the religious theme, why not call it Paradise or The Garden of Eden.

Themitri on January 12, 2021 at 12:24 am

I suggest “Hevengard” as a city name.

Call it Elysium

Lyouke on January 12, 2021 at 6:51 pm

@Lyouke I was thinking the same!
Specially since the designation numbers in an upside calculator look similar to Elysium.

Umnia, for hope and desire is what this fantastical city is about.

You can also go with being really on the nose and go with Utopia.

Arguas on January 14, 2021 at 1:53 pm

I’m going with Albion i guess.

Our blue-scarfed “antagonist” has gotten many victories.

wait what !? planet 1 ? you mean … no … no way !? :-))))

Espilacopolis ;P

Keep it simple and call it Sanctuary.

Mr. Comment on January 15, 2021 at 11:07 am

Bastion has a certain appeal, though there are probably better names already suggested. It would appeal to the desire for security created by the end of civilization and much of the world, though

SomeGuy411 on January 15, 2021 at 12:00 pm

Elysium is pretty high brow, but I like it. I think it’s more plausible that non-religious people would call it ‘sanctuary’ though (as I assume it’s not just Phillip naming things now. Bastion is also very noble, I think the sense of ‘humanity’s last stand’ is invoked by that — again, though, it’s a fairly high brow / epic word.

Hi Joe, is that number you machine’s IP address?
