So as the developers here at Reverie have portrayed this game so far, when a player makes an account they are given a number of slots that they can start, delete, etc. Much like many other MMOs, but in this game their City or Homeland is the MMORTS equivalent to a MMORPG's avatar or toon.

This is just one of the many things that make me so excited about Dawn of Fantasy. Many other games do an adequate job of making you feel like your a king of your respective city or culture. But in an MMORTS such as this all the other kings around you are players. Through little tidbits of info here and there the Developers have given us an insight into what our first few hours will be like. Establishing our first stronghold and learning the ropes of our factions unique abilities and structure, while expanding and growing.

I greatly look forward to these first few hours of building my first city, even more so my first encounter with my neighbors. So I was wondering what are you guys gonna name your first Homeland? If possible what are you going to name your Hero? Since some of you may be my neighbors I'd like to hear from you!

So I decided to name my city using Tolkien's Elvish language. Googling "Elivish to English Dictionary" I found a list of words from which to draw from. I came up with this:

"Fenn Athan Amar" Which roughly translates as "Threshold (to) Beyond (the) World". "To" and "The" not being listed, so I just added them with (). Which I may just group altogether like Fenn'Athan'Amar, which is probably grammatically incorrect but it looks better in my opinion.

Threshold meaning:

2 a : gate, door b (1) : end, boundary; specifically : the end of a runway (2) : the place or point of entering or beginning : outset <on the threshold of a new age>

I chose those words because I would like to put my City on the border between the Elven realm of Bilt'Ranta Na and the Orcish lands of Thikken Dal, between the cities of Uttal Astras and Grintak. Basically, from a strategic and roleplay perspective I'm setting myself up as a Elven outpost of the forces of Uttal Astras (my Elven Account's home city, from purely a rp perspective), as the front line defense of an Orc incursion or staging area for a campaign into Thikken Dal. Also for more practical terms it gives me immediate access to the city of Uttal Astras for quests and supplies and I am in a prime position to begin my Orc Genocide!!!!

Here's (http://i183.photobucket.com/albums/x119/Zelu_bucket/worldmap.jpg) a link to a map showing roughly where I plan to put my city so you can see what I'm talking about. the black "X" being where my city will be....if given the choice. All of this is just speculation on my part, I don't even know how much of a say I will be given as to where to put my city. But in the off-hand chance of my dreams coming true then all of you Orc players better be on the lookout for Elven raiders flying my banner!

"Nopia" would be a possible name.

First thing that came to my mind was Lordaeron, but i will not use it cuz want to create my own. Well making names takes for me the longest time .... lul even sometimes whole day before start playing and sometimes i just delete high lvl stuff if i dont like their name. And i havent excluded Erikland yet =P. Nothing more creative came to my mind yet. If possible, i will name my hero Erik or Kire =).

Oh wow... i JUST realise that kire is erik backwards :eek: im so stupid... :D

I think i will go for something that sounds especially fantasy.... ('We will charge the gates of ____') that is the line that you must think of when you name your city... Either that or ('We will storm the village of ___') :D

Well, it'll end up like how I name characters on Oblivion - it always seems to start with a 'V' and contain a 'll' somewhere...
Either that, or Manwood :p

villy? Anyways my human town will be called lorelay because i love blackmore's night. My hero will be named ragnar or something cooler i just gotta wait and see. My orc village will be named Dreadmaw and my orc hero would be named lolita:D

My city will be named "Yerathu". In my fantasy world, it was once a great capital city, but was sacked in a huge battle involvoing 700,000 soldiers. It was abandoned after this battle, because it was so inundated with corpses and blood. A hundred years later, it was destroyed by earthquake and buried in magma.

I'm not exactly sure what to call my city. I have a few ideas but I don't have a name for my human and orc cities. This raises another question to me, will we be able to name our heroes?

Zeluk
03-06-2010, 02:40 PM
No one other then the Devs know for sure. I spent quite a it of time researching Heroes and there isn't all that much concrete information on them.

I was thinking Mount Gundabad from JRR but it's not like me to do names that aren't unique, I may just create my own name. We'll see.

As for your name, google the all knowing search engine answers that :P

Edit:Love the name "Orc". All the orcs will be jealous of that one!

In my case not so much creativity as much as taking the name of the capital of Eastern Rome that I remember reading about in a book for my social studies project on Julius Ceaser. :D

Edit: I know that Eastern and Western Rome were created after his dictatorship for anyone who was thinking about pointing that out.

Mine is just to type letters by randomly hitting a key then building off it letter by letter what sounds okay til I have a name. That's how I got this one...that apparently everyone pronounces differently, or can't pronounce, but hey it's unique!

Swift sword
03-06-2010, 10:19 PM
I typically just stick with anything that doesn't sound modern. For example, I'd name a character on a MMORTS Dalathorn. I love the word thorn, honestly :p

Other city names...hmm, there's Thornane, Limdale, Derothor....I coul go on and on. Seeing as I'm in 3rd beta, me thinks I'll get my choice as to my favored name. Here's to hoping we can carry on accounts to real thing :)

Derothor....

That name reminds me of something, wonder what?

Are you reading the books Dragon Age is based off? If so, I imagine there are tons of potential ideas within the books or the game itself. I've personally yet to read the books, probably never will. Played the game, though. Pretty good.

Yeah, I'm liking the ring of Ceruthia more and more though. The "ruthia" part bears a slight resemblance to the word "ruthless" and I've always liked the letter c. It'll probably be my first choice if it's availiable. Fits reasonably well with humans, too.

Jean=A=Luc
03-08-2010, 03:59 PM
Maybe Athenaum or something like that. Or even Hypatia although I'd prefer to save that one for my character name if female heroes are implemented. Can't remember what the devs said about that.

The Witch King of Angmar
03-08-2010, 07:03 PM
Angmar probably. I bet none of you will guess why. :confused: Or Minas Morgul. Or maybe Ralph.

Negthareas
03-08-2010, 08:39 PM
Nathar, Seselandis, Thryalis, Alash, Thelithir, etc.

I got a whole list lined up.

By the way - You can have 4 different identities on the MMORTS, and each can have up to seven cities, right?

Can I team up with myself? That would be like, 28 cities worth of men and supplies.

Zeluk
03-08-2010, 08:45 PM
Heh, I thought about that the other day. My guess is it would be impractical, there wouldn't be any real benefits, like teaming up with an NPC that can't do anything while your 'offline'.

Negthareas
03-08-2010, 08:47 PM
Yes, but you could attack with one player, then the next, then the next, - by the fourth attack, you would be practically garrenteed a victory.

This would allow you to keep more troops in each city as garrisons, - you would lose less men overall.

Zeluk
03-08-2010, 09:03 PM
The devs said that the game scales to your level and your only allowed to fight players that are within your level range. So if all of your accounts are different level then that will be restricted. Not to mention when you attack NPC's the game goes into a instance so everyone else in the world can still interact with the NPC and doesn't have to wait for you. As for players, I remember reading somewhere that you have a certain time after attack in which you can't be attacked, can't remember where. I'll linky when I find it.

Edit: Found the info inside one of the screenshots (http://www.reverieworld.com/screenshots/Weekly_21/09.jpg) for the Human showcase. My guess is it's suspect to change but currently it is set for 20mins after a PvP match or after suing for peace.

Might be Ava Mani..which is my mix of certain languages..and would translate as "Desired Jewel":P

Or say..Hortensia Eadburga, meaning "Garden Fortress", also a mix of languages.

Probably something like that, could be anything else really:P

In Norway you could almost see non-white people swaying the south state flags. We don't really care about the meanings of things. Anything related to black or brown or those many colors are banned. We are not allowed to call them anything actually, however the things we got that is free is that you are allowed to sway whatever flag you wish and express your inner thoughts on a matter without everyone going around saying that you crossed the line. I mean if you go to the countryside (no not the places with a store thats a small village our terms of large is a city with 10 k inhabitants and up) i bet in one of 15 houses you are bound to find a south state flag or a swastika flag stuffed away or hanging openly. Its simply because we are allowed to do that, i mean our society is not made of racists. The one thing we do admire about every one of them is that they actually take action when they mean something. In Norway getting a group of 10 people together to demonstrate or something is just as easy as running around with a machine gun through the royal palace killing everyone and getting caught on tape and get away with it after being arrested.

Also a guy i know runs around putting Nazi flags on Hamsun statues to express his opinion:p It even came out in a newspaper last year when he hung it up on a statue all the way down in Israel:o I feel sorry for him if Nazi's find him, however i think that its good that he expresses his opinions. I mean our town is stupid enough to buy "Hamsun postboxes" that gives off a constant story telling. The cost; 300 000 for three of em. All of which were destroyed withing the week:eek: Our small city is too caught up in Hamsun being a good guy there that they just scratched over his Nazi past to make our city "less of a racist society" however not that it would matter if they hung up follower of Nazism. So we can believe whatever we want, express whatever we want. As long as it doesn't directly contain something involving a race of people, sexes or religions.

So believe what you want, in Norway we are disillusioned by the thought of being free while we are actually in quite a strict country but as long as nobody knows nobody cares:D

Would probably be a safer bet to avoid doing something like that in the future. As the symbolism you jokingly mocked is still a relevant issue in some regions which is why people don't take it so lightly and are cautious about it being visible. It's the same as any other coalitions of hate that previously or currently exist. Not to mention how you made the letters in question stand out.

well that is all true:) Tough its still racism, and its worse then KKK. Because here they go to real (simulated) war and don't disguise themselves during the day as normal people and during the night as ghosts:( I mean what would happen if orcs appeared on earth, at first we would subjugate them. Force then into our society, make them slaves. And after a few thousand years of slaves then a revolutionary orc finds out that he wants to be free. So he starts speaking to the orc people and say "I have a dream, that one day orcs and humans can co exists. I have a dream that one day orcs will be free. I have a dream that one day... WAAAAGHH" *pulling an axe and going berserk* After a time they would eventually go free, and then they would all be quite normal tough there will take a hundred years before they adapt. Anyways there would still be racism. Till we have all learned to co exist and live boring lives that ends up in three categories. Eat, sleep and work:(

Theanswer to your questionis realtivly simple the reason KKK or nazism is more offensive then say F-a-g or prehaps R-e-t-a-r-d is quite simple Firstly the majorty of USA id saynow is whites and blacks and theres that natural racial tension thus why KKK is tookenso harsherly nazismquitesimple its NAZISM which wiped out thejews in massive numbers plus hitler was wacked outof his mind with somenonsence of supperior race or what not Regardless the main reason is he is looked down or frowned upon by the majorty of the world so its wrong by the masses,

Futher more Freedom of speech or freedomitself is simply an illusion and nothing of thesort has exsisted for a while.

This thread has now derailed into a debate over racial hate groups. Please get it back on topic please and if the issue is really something you want to discuss, make a topic about it in the off-topic section but i'd assume the mods would close it...

Freedom of Speech exists! You have the freedom to say whatever you want but there can be consequences to saying it. No one can stop you from voicing your opinion but if you get fired because of it thats a consequence to freedom of speech. This forum being the property and direct representation of Reverie World Studios, they can decide certain topic matter is not suitable in under their banner. So as I said, you have the "freedom" to say it but other people have the right to remove it and frown upon it.

Alex Walz
05-24-2010, 11:15 AM
Freedom of Speech is not an illusion, it just has its written restraints. You can say unchecked freedom of speech is an illusion, but you need to know the law before making any sort of judgment. For example, when looking at it from the perspective of the US Constitution, the First Amendment does not protect public employees when they are working - meaning their employer can fire them if he/she finds their words problematic. False statements in advertising are not protected - which is why drug commercials must state their possible side effects. Statements that can be interpreted as a hazard to the wider community are not protected, neither are obscenity, hate speech (the majority of examples in this thread), or statements made to evade or obscure a draft.

So if you have examples of Freedom of Speech failing in other circumstances, then you can make your argument. Otherwise, it's just people not knowing the law. ;)

I'm not going to delete the posts, as that would be akin to censorship, which I vehemently oppose in any form, but neither will I split the topic - the train of thought is dead, and opening it in its own topic would either encourage someone else to post in said topic on said issue, or simply be a dead topic. Either way, we don't particularly want it revived here (feel free to discuss Freedom of Speech in a new topic in The Pub, though) and it'd look bizarre on its own. I'm going to let it stay here.
I'll leave it to Reverie what direction they'd want to take it, officially... for me it's barely an issue, but then I'm used to being a moderator at Revora where everything is a heck of a lot more open/lapse.

Let's not forget that the Internet and this forum is not governed by the United States of America, Canada, France, Paraguay, South Africa, or any other nation that has signed the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and therefore Freedom of Speech is not applicable here as the laws of those or any nation prescribes/allows.

I'm torn between wanting to use Tolkien elvish, trying to use DoF elvish, or merging some Welsh and/or Gaelic (perhaps...also into elvish). Tolkien elvish is certainly easiest - the Ardalambion is a wealth of resources. DoF elvish is still limited, but also fairly straightforward. Welsh and Gaelic, while interesting, elvish-sounding languages, are still real-life and thus maybe not fantasy enough...

Of course, I could just take the common choice from Dark Age of Camelot and early WoW, and be Llleggolasss, or Aelllrondd, or something absurd like that. But then, I'd rather NOT have a big "kick-me" sign like that on my province...

I prefer gaelish/celtic names. It's as close as we get to elven times and it sounds cool :)

I like them too, and use them a lot (and, in games that I play with a poorly developed elven language, I use Gaelic/Welsh to fill in), but for this I'm not sure. There's elvish in place already, albeit a limited lexicon thus far, and it almost seems cheap to borrow Tolkien...

I suppose at this point, I'm leaning towards Tolkien elvish (probably a mix of Quenya and Sindarin) with Gaelic/Welsh filling in any roots for which there isn't a readily available Tolkien term. I know that's a lot, but hey it's elvish...it should be really long!

(maybe not Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysilio gogogoch long, but long nonetheless - and maybe no quadruple L)

Thats what I ended up doing for my city. It would be nice to use DoF elvish to create a name but aside from asking the developers to make a city name for me I just went with Tolkien.

I've always done something like 'Vale of...' or 'Realm of..' when naming my city, this time though I think I'll make it one word but now that I think of it I don't want to say it as someone might steal it! :p

I'm going to call my city MORDOR, just like that evil city in Lord of the Rings.

08-25-2010, 11:14 AM
By the way mordor is a region not a city, Dol Guldur is a city, Minas Tirith is a city, the Shire was unknown is it a region or a town? anyways mordor is just an area walled in (by mountains) and could not be called a city (no infrastructure at all and to get around required walking through crammed orc masses) Its a perfectly viable name for a city tough:D

You know that is among the most profitable suggestions i have ever heard:D Then i will take all the star wars names and sell them on ebay for $20 000 And then i would take the twilight names, then i would acquire the x-man names. Then i would monopolize fantasy names. And after a while unless you want to be named W3Fuc"03M4øx"s3s93(K.o)= Then you have to pay for it:D

Humans, going to be like a king arthor build, but alas the name will not be...


You walk your way to the borderlands and run into the local milita on the road. As you approach one of the men in leatherly armor approches and begins to speak...

"You have just entered the kingdom of Fobia... please whatch your step, people are very skidish around here mate."

You nod and continue on your journey and then thinking of what the man just said to you. You feel an uneze as you journey further into the lands. A thousand eyes seem to wash over your every move as you take each step. Paranoia sets in as you begin to glance in every direction looking for a trap or some sign of invasion.

I lack creativity. I'd just name my cities after a bunch of cities from games like Morrowind and Oblivion. Might even name some after the cities of my island of origin. Question, are there like sections of regions like in the Medieval series and a limit of settlements per each region? Or can you just enter a region and build wherever you feel?

I think i'll call mine "the small peaceful village that has absolutely no defense and no army so go ahead and attack without caution, because there is absolutely no way i could possibly stop you"

.... but my village wont be a village, Infact it will be a huge castle! with major defences! and a huge army! and the only way to penetrate my walls is with a nuke! but we don't have nukes in this game so i will be invincible! :cool: [Sarcasm/off]

but seriously i dont know what i will name my city, probably names from lotr or actual historic places.

Jason Dennic
12-08-2010, 01:37 AM
Great question... I would have to say for a city name, probably Kalistin. It's a name that I've used through a bunch of different games so seems fitting to keep up the tradition.

For a hero, Jason Dennic all the way. It's been my name screen name for a long time and just wouldn't be the same if it wasn't my hero name :)

I ll be naming my city as Nelvoya(if i get in). kinda used to that name, in most of the mmorts games that i played i used that.


Not that it means to anything but yeah,kinda looks eye-candy:D

Mannel
12-10-2010, 01:08 PM
I tend to roleplay in the beginning when playing games like DoF and will therefore name my village to something like "Cakkamakk's Hole" or "Drekkagh's Dungeon".

Heh.

Something unusual...
Elen Alda - used a little lord of the rings to come up with that one... Star tree (for the elves :D )

and if anyone wants a cool sounding name just go to a fantasy language dictionary online (like the elvish one for lotr) and just put two words together, usually end up sounding pretty cool

I would name my city Númenor, which was the name of a star shaped island in lotr lore that got destroyed. Basically it was the place that the people of Gondor came from before it sunk.
