Building Naming Reply to this Post

Ok i'm moving to Opal on the 8th almost as soon as it opens.

So i'm going for the first island with the help of a lot of my mates and some of their freinds XD

I'm just wondering if i can have some entrys on Island names


Shoppe's, Bazzar's, Fort/Palace, Commodities Market and Other buildings that you want to add.

Prizes will be entered in once i get them sorted.

The naming theme will be Music Bands.

Follow this theme.

Closing date will be as soon as the First Opal blockade ends. If we win the winning entrys will be placed on the Buildings.

If we lose i will send over the winning entrys over to the Winning flag to take into thought.

and a bank could be "Weird Al Bankovic"

A weavery could be "The Needles"

Since Opal will be a German-language ocean... perhaps German-language names would be a good idea?

This is a very good point. Chances are, none of the names suggested so far would work well with the German audience, at least not as punny names.

You DO know everyone who plays there will be expected to be at least marginally conversationally competent in German, right? :-)

Emerson,
who knows nothing about the German music scene to even attempt to suggest any puns.

Okay, music bands in German.

Tailor: Die Toten Hosen
Furnisher: Massive Möbel (from Massive Töne)
Shipyard: Schiffswerk (From Kraftwerk)
Palace: Einstürzende Neubauten
Inn: Freundeskreis

There's some to start. They're all pretty self-explanatory.

Or however you say that in German.

But failing to name the inn after him will result in thousands of Germans "stalking you down and shooting you."

I know which one I'd choose.

I'd choose not to put him ANYWHERE on my island...Unless he plays Ypp and pays for it to be built in his honour.

You all have to understand that he's very popular in Germany, especially after his music, um, career... took off.

This is the German server folks. You cannot force your American preferences upon them.

You can't stereotype a people with statements like "David Hasslehoff is popular in Germany." Now, if I'd said "All Germans love Hasslehoff" then I would have been stereotyping them.

Oh, and Opal in this case is the name of the new German server, not the archipelago in Midnight.
