Arakouka Building Naming Contest!

Ok let's have some fun mates!!

Arakoua Building Naming Contest!

Post here any names that you would like to see on Arakoua. Keep the island theme in mind, All Things Prehistoric.

10K will be paid for any name that is used.

(If more than one person post identical names then the first person that posted will recieve the 10K)

This will be an ongoing event while we control the island.

Myself or one of my royals will post as we need names in certain time frames.


these are the posts from the previous thread this was started in.


Thegeralt said

I guess it's time for me to make some commitment aswell.

Iron Age would probably be the most obvious one for Iron Monger.

Inn Habilis(or any other of genus)? Edit: Inn's been made, so.. Cabin Habilis? :P

Paleolithic Bank.

Mesolithic Fruit.

Neolithic Homesteeds.

Chalcolithic Estates.

Qing Shacks.

Manorhenge.

Any money that may be won will be used to support flag funds in any ways possible.



Fransisco said

Stonemade ships :P lol, for the shipyard bazaar


Aimela said

Inn: Cro-magnon-inn or cro-magninn

Re: Arakouka Building Naming Contest!

N.B. Should I think of any more before the end of this contest, I'll just make a second post, as to not interfere with the date- and timestamp of this posting. My thoughts turned to the early archaeological sites of prehistoric man and his creations.

Archaic Arms (Manor) (or) Archaic Armoury (IM-theme)
Venus of Villandorf (Villa)
Folsom & Clovis (Tailor shoppe; doesn't it just sound like a clothing store?)
Rig of Brogdor ("Ring of Brogdor" site) - (SY-theme)
Tarxien Toxins (Apoc-theme)
Skara Brews (Skara Brae site) (Distil-theme)
Cayonu Cloth (or Clothing) (Tailor/Weave bazaar)--
Cayonu was the site of a discovery of cloth that dated back approx. 9000 years.
Hoarded Coins (Bank)
Excavat-inn Just because. :)

-T.

Tortie of Sage

Wait - I mean 'of Emerald'

No? How about Obsidian?

Re: Arakouka Building Naming Contest!

Ok we had a few entries that weren't posted here that came up as winners.

Vnork suggested Tyrinnasurus Rex for the Inn.

Kait suggested Brig Bang Theory for the Ship Bazaar.

So everything eles still needs a name!

I don't mean to rush everyone on this but we would like the ocean involved as much as possible with the naming of buildings. We are looking for names for a couple of the bazaars first.

Re: Arakouka Building Naming Contest!

Sorry for double post: Suggestion... wouldn't it be a good idea to wait a bit more than a few hours to take decisions? Just letting people have time to read the event and maybe come up with ideas, and letting you maybe find ideas that come a few hours later but are maybe even better. Just a suggestion. I do not care much. Mwahs! And all of them sound amazing!

EDIT: It is the first time (except maybe when LoL was on it in Scrimshaw) that I seriously think about this... wow how hard it is trying to come up with creative things in English :P it was funnnnnnnn!

Re: Arakouka Building Naming Contest!

To Bia: I think Wicked updated the OP to include that it's an ongoing event while they hold they island.

To Sedna: There's plenty of buildings left to be named. To get Arakoua up and running as soon as possible, and since only two plots can be active at once, construction sites need to be placed right when another one finishes. If a really incredible suggestion comes along, I think it's 75k to rename, which isn't too bad.


SY:
Primordial Sloop
Piltdhow Man
Jurassic Ark

Weavery:
The Strand Before Time

Market:
Price Age

Distillery:
Yabba-Dabba-Brew

Tailor:
Neandershawl

Iron Monger:
Australosmithecus

Editing to add suggestions while I'm the most recent post, to avoid double posting.

Unless I'm missing a pun, how is an iguana relevant to prehistory any more than any animal that was also around then (alligator, crocodile, just about any reptile, ceolacanth)
