Alpha 19 Name suggestions

Recommended Posts

Errm if Vikings are going to be in the next alpha then the name has to be Thor :D

How about these suggestions:

1. Troy:

2. Mars

3. Horde

4. Empire

5. Bloodlust

The vikings aren't planned in current time frame.

What are the other names ? Suggestion for names about next alpha?

Need start with "S" need be original and be may be ancient name like Rohododactylos was for the last alpha, thanks for the suggestion.

Vikings are from 800 AD , the game main theme is around 500 BC - 500 AD. the Rise and Fall Roman Empire( and other empires).

Mostly are english names, the team select ancient name( language) based in Greek, Latin , Hebrew/ Punic if is possible, ancient Persian ( pharsi or farsi ?) and some Celtic names and Ancient Indian.

The 2nd problem is : you need start with S each name.

3th you need be have a good reason for choice those names.

Here are my ideas:

0 A.D. 19 ...

Semita - Latin for "path" because of the new pathfinder

Ignis Semita - "fire path"

Ignis Tempus - "time of fire"

Ferro Igne - "iron and fire"

Trahentium - "trail"

Sanguinem Semita - "blood path"

Polypodis - "octopus" :)

Yes, the name semita sounds good for Alpha 19

Errm if Vikings are going to be in the next alpha then the name has to be Thor :D

Hi there Dezzi, the Council of Modders is working on a Norse (or Viking) faction for our Millenium AD mod. :) You can find the CoM here in the forums or track us via ModDB :)

You can also download the experimental versions of the mod on Github https://github.com/0ADMods/millenniumad

Maybe "Semitae" (plural, "paths") then? I like that proposal but I'm not sure the new pathfinder is the best thing to highlight gameplay-wise (capturing would make more sense).

Actually capturing is just another path to win, right ? :)

This sounds like a valid alternative. After looking in my dictionnary the correct form seems to be σύλληψις. That would give Syllepsis (or Syllēpsis) after translitteration.

Indeed that is the nom. singular, I took the dat.

Here some more greek words with almost the same meaning:

sumballoo (and many forms of these verb) -- to unite

summisgoo -- to combine

sunakoloutheoo -- to go with

sunaptoo -- to unite

etc.

I could fill a few pages with these words, but Syllepsis seems to be the nicest word.

I would lean towards Syllepsis, because I'm afraid people would think we added a new Semitic faction if we go with Semitae.

The decision has been made and the next release will be Alpha 19 Syllepsis, I'll close this thread to avoid any future confusion.
