Community Engagement: Island Themes Reply to this Post

Ahoy! Before beginning, I'm hoping this discussion can be held as civilly as possible. Please consider hanging your political hats at the door and leaving ocean politics or your dislike for certain people behind.

I've been thinking it would be a nice idea if the community comes together and came up with names for a themed island on the ocean. At the moment considering there are only two islands colonized, this is a hypothetical. In no way can I promise that this will happen, but I figured it'd be nice if we all came together and came up with cute names for a themed island.

I have a few "punny" names for a potential Game of Thrones themed island on Obsidian. Let's start the discussion with what island you think would be suitable for such a naming theme. For example: Pride Island is more obviously an island that should have a lion-related naming theme so it would be inappropriate to force a GoT theme upon it. Secondly, please include some suggestions towards the theme or some criticisms you have of the theme idea.

To make things interesting I have started a collection for whoever comes up with the best palace name. A panel of judges (undetermined at the moment) will vote on which of the submitted palace names is the best, and winner will receive the total prize pool with other smaller prizes given to "honorable mention" submissions.

CURRENT PRIZE POOL: 200k

To share with you some names myself and some friends have come up with:

-Government Buildings-

Inn: A Dance with Flagons
Black Market: Valerian Steal
Trading Post/Market: Family, Booty, Honor

-Shoppes/Bazaars-

Shipyard: House Hully
Shipyard: Junken H'gar
Apothecary: What is Dead May Never Dye
Apothecary: Dyewin Lannister
Tailor/Weavery: We Do Not Sew
Tailor/Weavery: Brienne of Cloth



I'd prefer to steer clear of a shoppe names like "Sansa's Sloops" or "Brienne's Brigs" as I feel they are a cop-out and we can totally do better! Show the ocean your best punny ideas and crown yourself as ruler of the seven kingdoms!!

Love this, a GOT themed island would be amazing, looking forward to seeing all the creative responses!

Couple spring to mind will try to add more as this goes on:

The Bank: The Iron Bank (May be too Obvious) Or Bolton's Bank
The Obvious Palace one has to be: The Iron Throne
Furnisher: A Dance With Decking
Inn: Mole's Town (Decorate it to make it very grimy)
Trading Post: Braavos

Island: either Nevermore (as GoT takes place in Westeros, and it's the most western island), Krakentoa (leaves lots of room for Greyjoy-related puns), or Ember Eye (we're talking A Song of Ice and Fire, after all, and it clearly looks like a dragon's eye)


Palace: You Know Nothing, Chateau

Inn: Brienne of Hearth

Black Market: Castle Black Market

Shipwrightery: Dhowio Naharis; We Do Not Row; Rowing Strong

Bank: Minter Is Coming

Furnisher: Bed Stark

Apothecary: Dyerwolves

Tailors: Cowl Drogo
