Flagship Name Ideas
Post your ideas here.
We'll vote on the best one and post it in the next DV. Winner gets an SC.
Fist of the Throne.
Way of Finality.
- Spaceball 1
- the Burninator
shall I continue?
Dark Brother One (heh)
uh... i'll get back to you with more :mellow:
Well my vote is for Spaceball 1 but ...
Autarch. It means supreme ruler. It's a fairly logical addition to words such as Imperial and Sovereign. It would basically mean "supreme ruling-class star destroyer".
The shape of the ship also makes me think of the word Shadow. Shadow-class star destroyer Autarch would be nice. Though its common in real life to name a ship after its class there actually is no evidence of this in Star Wars beyond a couple of coincidences and a lot more clear examples where Star Wars actually goes against common naming procedures.
*yes, I admit, its borrowed from the books. Still, not a bad name. Optionally, may change Knight to Night.
Machaera Ater (latin for Black Sword)
I'll think of some more....
Dark Vengeance (lot's of Dark's, yes.
Reign of Shadows
All works well Goat, but you forget..Autarch was an SSSD.
My naming suggestion.. PSSD Paladin (Would suggest VSSD Vader, but that sounds too based off Darth Vader, not Kane..)
- Ronin :ronin:
- Dark Hope
- Brothership of the hood
- Dark Despair
I like the idea of it being an ASD - Autarch-class (like ruling class star destroyer) but I think that would require a different name. ASD (blank)
Actually, traditionally a ship class is named after the first ship of that type, if I recall Donitz's lectures correctly.
Neo Twilight *shrugs*
yay Shadow-class. I think we have a winner here people.
I've always like naming ships - from the days when you could do it in "Rebellion" to more modern day games - even Master of Orion 3 where you get to name the class. My suggestions are:
Armageddon - Complete and utter destruction
Agamemnon - High King of Greece, evil, demented and obsessed with ruling
Adjudicator - synonym of Ruler
Chaos - CSD
Grand Master - GMSD
Darkside / Dark Side - DSSD
Brotherhood - BSD
That's just a few off the top of my head
Erebus: greek mythology, the personification of darkness
Taranis: celtic mythology, compared to jupiter/zeus, known as the "thunderer"
Cerebus: greek mythology, guardian of the underworld
I think I prefer Erebus out of the three.
*edit* I have yet to see anyone reccomend Nemesis. Since I was going all mythological and stuff, it means righteous anger or divine vengence. But it is a little cliche, though I still like it almost as much as Erebus.
Terror was a good one too.
I cant belive no one has said this yet, but...
I think that's enough for now. of course, most class names can double as vessel names...
Has to be said, I like the word Autarch
So either something-class Autarch, or Autarch-class something.
Hachiman- Japanese God of War- a truly awesome fighter might get the title 'Hachiman Taro' meaning 'First Son of the God of War'
Muramasa- Japanese swordsmith famed for his crazy, evil personality- his blades are widely known as 'evil' and are considered cursed.
I see a theme developing here... unfortunately, everyone took the Greek names I was going to use
Um there can be only one name
It says all you need to know.
I like Predator. It's so.. fishy! But if not that, what about...
Alright, I'll put my three in here, they're all along the same lines, but r0x0r anyways.
ID Illusion Illusion Class Destroyer
MD Mirage Mirage Class Destroyer
SD Spectre Spectre Class Destroyer
You notice I didn't call it a Star Destroyer, because they don't necessarily need to be called Star Destroyers, only the lines of ships that are actually fairly similar in design (VSD through ESSD) need to be classified as star destroyers. Destroyer is the biggest class of ship in the Star Wars uni from what I can recall, so we should probably keep it as a Destroyer, though I wouldn't be against classifying it as a Dreadnaught.
That'll be it from me.
Next as a Judicial type, I would ask that people keep their ideas to one post, if you have more in the future, you can go edit your previous post. I have my doubts that this was meant to be a discussion topic, so much as a "list your ideas so Jac can go through them and choose, not have to look at your inane and idiotic dribble" topic.
Just quickly, I think Erebus is good, too. As for my own contributions,
Tenebrae-class (or Tenebrous)
Nihilo-class (or Nihilist-class)
Well, I am bored so here are some names...
-- Shadow Knight
-- Firefox (hehe)
-- Dark Blade (or Sword)
If I think of any more crappy names, I will add them here.
Sunflash... a bunch of those names have already been suggested.
aka all but one I think.
-Sovereign (I think this actually already might be a class of Destroyer...)
-Tandem (two ships)
I think Abyss is already in use, the flagship of Arcona as I recall.
How about the "DJB Klondyke" or "DJB Avalon". Of course 'DJB' could be replaced by anything, like USS, heh.
SSD Infinite Darkness
SSD War Throne
SSD Dark Hammer
Sorry, musta missed some of those. How about these....
--- Darkest Night (or Knight)
--- Darkest Force
--- Dark flame
God all of those have dark in there somewhere.
-The True Way
-The Great Jedi Killer
-The Lon Sweat
-The Coltelin Slayer
- Dark Justice Justice Class
- Dark Vengenance Vengeance Class
(was this already said? :blink: )
- The Thrust0r Thrust Class
- The Night Mist Mist Class
- Blood of the Botherhood Brotherhood Class
- The Rapture Rapture class
Thats all i got for now. :w00t:
Tao of jac
Trojan Man Condom Brand
Grand Master's Fist
The Council's Fury
I have a few more, but I'll allow others to present their ideas before I flood this thread again with my babble
Apollyon (the Gatekeeper of Hell, essentially)
Symbol of the Word:-
Medusa has historically been seen as the archetype of the nasty mother, however she is far more complex. She symbolizes the following:
Sovereign female wisdom. The female mysteries. All the forces of the primordial Great Goddess: The Cycles of Time as past, present and future. The Cycles of Nature as life, death and rebirth. She is universal Creativity and Destruction in eternal Transformation. She is the Guardian of the Thresholds and the Mediatrix between the Realms of heaven, earth and the underworld. She is Mistress of the Beasts. Latent and Active energy.
Connection to the earth. The union of heaven and earth. She destroys in order to recreate balance. She purifies.
She is the ultimate truth of reality, the wholeness beyond duality. She rips away our mortal illusions. Forbidden yet liberating wisdom. The untamable forces of nature. As a young and beautiful woman she is fertility and life. As crone she consumes by devouring all on the earth plane. Through death we must return to the source, the abyss of transformation, the timeless realm. We must yield to her and her terms of mortality. She reflects a culture in harmony with nature.
Well the common symbol of a Medusa is transformation and petrification. Now with that symbol in our heads, lets imagine.
Our Enemies are petrified with fear when this cruiser exits hyper space, The Medusa. I chose a female name becasue a ship is considered female anyways, so may as well go with the flow.
A small Skit:-
General: "My Lord the Medusa has entered orbit, her gun ports are opened"
Local Governor: "God help us all."
Next scene we see the population of that world look up at the massive shape of the heavy cruiser, petrified in their glare as red ruby darts cascade across the surface of the planet. Turning the once green world into morter and ash.
Cant get more symbolic than that!
The "Grievous" after General Grevous in Episode 3.
Theres a name Im looking to name our City in SWG before some wanna-be-Imperial guild does.
I was discussing this with my consul, and we both agreed this name would be great and would inspire fear into the hearts of our enemies....
Its a hella cool name, you have to admit...
Well, my consul might be the guy whos in charge of whooping ass on the entire DB, or incharge of just Taldryan if you're picky. I thought you'd figure that out by my avatar....
if cannabis doesn't work for you, I could always play on the Gm's ego by giving a few names like:
Jac of All Trades
Tao of Jac
or Woden (Viking god) [don't ask]
name it Cannabisia
The Covenant Sword from Halo 2.
