Nimbusola

Volaria

How about "Valoria" or "Valorian"?
At least that way there's some valor in it ;)...

All of those make me think of Game of Thrones/Song of Ice and Fire, with Valyrian steel and all that.

Hmm...random names:

Mythraea
Hyperuranion (a philosophical term from Plato; has a nice ring to it though)
Protokinei (sounds Greekish)
Legioso ("legend")
Mythologos (with a hard 'g', more Greek, though a little too generic)
Logosa
Aethra
Logocaro
Middle-Earth?
Eden?
Pandora?
(All generic enough to avoid lawsuits, by the way. Even "Middle-Earth"; it's actually a translation of Midgard, a Norse mythological concept)

"Accretium" makes me think of black holes. But "Cascade" sounds appropriate, though perhaps plain English words might not be the best for this sort of thing.
Arcen in Summary:
thank you so much, RNG
It aims to please!

Or is that "to kill"?  Hmm.

Archean

From the geological era know as the Archean Era when earth's continents began to solidify.

Wikipedia link.

D.

edit: or Pannotia, the original super-continent that broke up to form the continents we know today.

Perhaps Pangaea would be better; it's the intermediate super-continent between Pannotia and today's ones, except probably more familiar (but then again that cuts both ways).

Yep, that's a large part of it.  But it's a boardgame that is alive. :)

Jumanji



Or something like -looks around at his deodorant and the box his phone came in-

Cienlumia.

Lumiacien.

Lumacien. <--- Actually, that sounds decent.



I will think of better ones based on better products.

Forgive me if I end up with any that sound like others already listed, I looked through the topic but my short term memory is horrid.

Anyway, I can jam random syllables together well enough, so here's a few:

Vair Tairel

Nar Tenil

Tres Noctora

Sairael

Asanthia




I was going to list more but then I blanked out and started thinking about cheese, so that'll do for now.

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!

Uh oh, just realised that "Aethra" (Greek: "bright sky") has actually been used as the name for several mythological figures: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aethra_(Greek_mythology)

I derived it from the word "Aether", which is just a fancier way of saying "ether".

I hope this doesn't invalidate my chances of getting a free Arcen Game :(

There's another thought: maybe we could play with the word Arcen: Arcendia? Naw, too generic. But still. Just an idea.
