Subject: 1JUL2014 - Name That Ocean contest!
Date Posted: 02 Jul 2014 at 01:18
Commanders - 

We are at a loss. The great southern ocean (the span of blue that rests between Elgea and the Broken Lands) needs a name. As many of you have crossed it, you might have noticed that the squares are named nothing fancy. In fact, the bland description of "ocean" comes up when a player clicks on one of the bits of blue. What to do?



This is where you come in. Help us name that ocean! Submit your choice for name -- one post per player, (your post can contain more than one name option!) please -- and at the end of July we'll choose our favorite. The winner will go down in Illyriad history as the Person Who Named _____ ! 

The player who wins the contest will have their winning entry on the map! Will it be you? Perhaps... get to posting!

I'm conflicted about posting more. You want the ideas, but you only want one per player, to make a competition fair.

@Rikoo: How about... many suggestions welcome. Any overlaps, the first post is credited. No edits, as that confuses the timestamps. Folk ahve posted more than one anyway... ;op

Mediterraneus

"
The term Mediterranean derives from the http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Latin" rel="nofollow - Latin word mediterraneus, meaning "in the middle of earth" or "between lands" (medi-; adj. medius, -um -a "middle, between" + terra f., "land, earth"):"

I apologize: I meant to say that many names are welcome, but keep them in a single post. Do not post one in one post, and then another in a new post. Just go back and edit your post and put another. 

I knew that players would want to submit more than one, so there ya go! I'll edit the original post.

Thanks,

Armokmigrur

(In the Language of the Dwarves in Dwarf Fortress "Armokmigrur" is a combination of Armok, the deity of blood (and creation), and the dwarf word meaning "ocean".)

My alliance,  http://elgea.illyriad.co.uk/#/Alliance/Alliance/125" rel="nofollow - The Slaves to Armok , are mostly made up of players from a game called  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dwarf_Fortress" rel="nofollow - Dwarf Fortress  and we, having made our homelands on Farra Isle (we call it Armokkumid) and the Rill Archipelago (we call it Armokfall) since the beginning of the game (or rather since the regions were created), would like to call the ocean Armokmigrur in honor of our patron deity, Armok. Armok has seen fit to bestow his blessings upon the Southern Seas by placing his patron animal, the poisonous crawler, on all available space. By naming the sea after Armok, who is a deity of creation and who symbolizes the creation of a new land, we hope to appease Armok so that he will bestow his blessings upon all the of the Broken Lands. In hope that one day they may be reunited again and the world will turn green and there will be bountiful harvests.

A little backround:

The Ocean which must not be named...

in short:

Tow Munobenam

from the sound of it, you could fit in in as a name originating from the Yaraquncha or Hanlif, as one of earliest folks crossing the Ocean... with Tow meaning Ocean, and munobenon being a byword for something inbetween, declinated to munobenam. Wink

Ok first off I'm thinking you hope this game grows rather large and expect as it does the World will expand??
 
In that case being as this is the first should it not be a Sea?
 
And still in that case a few questions who was First to cross it.  Who Discovered it?  Should it not be somehow tied into Illy history?  Just a few questions before I think of a name that might be acceptable.

Unless you consider the age of 13 to be 'young children'. Which I don't. Everybody under that age is not allowed to play the game, as of recent statements from GM's.

Apart from what Bimoda said (dirty mind you have, Arctic :P ), Cleavage is a word used in reading stuff for young adults.

Well, I wouldn't consider my mind dirty, since I have never heard "cleavage" used in that way CK. It's like "gay" it normally means happy... unless... yea. But, I never knew "cleavage" had a duel meaning also.

But even if the word is understood as the space between a pair of breast i still can't see that it is in any way inappropriate

Since the Windseekers were the first ones ones to discover The Broken Lands and bring back news to Elgea, maybe they should be included in the naming of the sea? I imagine them sending a messenger to King Sigurd of Illyria, informing him of the great discovery and since King Sigurd is such a fair and friendly King, he saw it fit to reward these explorers with their efforts. They are also one of the few factions to have hubs on both continents. 
Also, because King Sigurd has no known wife, I think he might have a mythical lover... 

Maybe he fell in love with a mermaid that lives in the unnamed sea? Maybe he already knew about The Broken Lands but kept it secret? So many questions....

--

I believe, that the sea should have 2 names. The people of The Broken Lands will obviously have called the unnamed  sea something different than the people of Elgea.

--

Suggestions thus far:

* Amphitrite Dorea (A Goddess of the Sea)
* Halimeda Amphitrite (Thinking of the Sea Goddess)
* Lethe Cari (River of flowing Oblivion)

--

Hopefully I'll have some more time before the end of July to think of more lore/history/combinations.

I like the idea of the ocean having different names from the perspective of people on different sides of it.

Here are some names I thought of: 
Barren Sea
Deep Blue Sea
Overlooked Crevice
The Crevice
Forgotten Fissure Ocean
The Faulty Sea
The Hindering Sea (especially since travel from Elgea to Broken Lands is a very long process)
Immense Sea
Ocean Breach
Seaside Excursion
Tempest Seabed
Seaside Typhoon
Luminous Depths

Parlantis Sea
bit of history 

 Duchy of Parlan, one of the Grand Dukes fell in love and eventually married a mermaid princess. This would explain why, centuries later, the Parlanese have taken on some of the features of the Demersae. It also serves as a good explanation as to why the Parlanese are the only faction that these strange ocean race trade and deal with.

When will the decision be made? Me thinks a salted trough of sorrow should'st have a name since so many have already crossed her.

From the initial post: " -- and at the end of July we'll choose our favorite."

Except I'm not sure we want to be traveling "over or under Stormcrow's Belt"...

I can just see it now... "I was doing really well but Stormcrow's Belt was my undoing"...

Image is slightly disturbing... ;)

I'm sure there are all sorts of variations that are fun...
