I've been wondering.
When I was going to make that joke?
I had to, you know.

If warheads can't solve it, use more warheads.

Sounds like an AD&D player making an editorial comment.

Okay, so SMF totally stopped giving me notifcations for some reason.  And good grief a lot of ideas while I was not being notified! ;)  Awesome stuff, folks.

Rather than trying to just update the OP, which is something people might not notice, I'm instead collecting my top picks in a locked thread here: http://www.arcengames.com/forums/index.php/topic,12776.0.html

Submissions still very much welcome in this thread of course!

That link gives a 404 :(

It works now, not sure why it didn't earlier.

I can already tell this is going to be a roller coaster ride of disappointment.

No actually. Although that is rather interesting now that I am paying attention.

Hmm...maybe my fridge will inspire me...

Gatoradia

Nope.  That was a bad idea.

Nardun
Kadanjia
Neotern
Holvagr
Pleniceas
Tivanagri
Revun-Hal
Garkasim

(none of these have been checked for how Americans would pronounce that)

Now for non-serious:
Katakis
Discworld
Dyson

I would assume that having each culture use a different name for the world is not happening?

Incidentally, the Dyson Sphere is a theoretical concept from physicist and mathematician Freeman Dyson. The basic idea is to surround a star with solar panels, and in that manner (theoretically) capture all the energy it was outputting: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dyson_sphere

I once independently came upon a similar design, but that's a story for another day.

Or is that "to kill"?  Hmm.

This is a brilliant idea, and would be a far more likely case than everyone standardising to one name.

Gertmegalush

Not serious, this one, it's just my favourite racehorse name that I wanted to share.

... Kertmegalush..?

Oh, nice, compo. Like all this community interaction stuff you do.


Edit: let's try a few...

Probably far too Scandinavian these:

Vaarden
Zamikal
Aeldora
Fassholm
Obsalon
Janserland
Zeuvaldsen
Garralex
Sonnestrom
Hellensen
Cioelith

This is a bit too much fun actually... could do pages of these. Maybe try a bit more quality control if I post any more.
