    Hey guys, so as I'm working on prepping an actual fantasy map for use in game, I realized that we have no name for this new realm.

    I would like everyone here to post ideas for the name, as well as the name of our village, and we will vote on it during our cleanup campout.

    Do we want to make it a new section of Averen? Or do we want to shift the Dark Forest lore and Kali Village to this site?

    Also, here is an updated layout on the map that I think will serve us better for the time being. Once we are established and have a larger player base, we can add in the second "Village".

    The Hilltop Village is closer to the parking area, and is far less of an uphill hike with all our gear. What do you think?

    I think it should be a new section if of kali viilage. This way we can still run dark forest games and lore there. I suppose we could just "expand" kali village and occupy more area. But in regards to names, I could see the hilltop village having an ancient magic feel to. It's set at the top of the hill to be able to see/chart the stars better. It could be called Ethilios. The city of starlight. Just an idea. I can expand on more later.

    So keep everything going and pretend it's the same location? That makes things easier lore wise. Maybe we find the site used to have a different name in an event, again referencing that Averen used to be an empire in the days of old... but so that's one vote for keeping it as the Dark Forest, and our village as Kali Village....

    Whatever the name, the lore should be the same. A name is easy enough to change...but redoing lore, not as easy.

    How about this: we keep the realm name as "the Dark Forest", and rename the village?

    I think keeping as Kali village for now until we "find" the ancient name for the area.

    I have to say that is a really good name. I like it, or maybe the forest of ruins?

    Personally, I think the village of Kali is in poor shape - a serious plague, some strange monster, and at least one drunkard with a club. People moving to a safer location makes sense to me, and renaming it of course makes sense.

    Ok so the count is:

    2 - Keep it as Kali Village
    2 - Change the name of the village

    Keep it coming guys!

    I vote for a name change.

    i vote for a name change.
     
  14. Kuba Ohmsford

    I would keep the Dark Forest village as Kali and make new names for the new villages throughout the lands. This way we can still go back to The Dark Forest and hold events/practices if something should happen to our new lands or we should want to progress the storyline there one week. Nothing would have to change except to say why we traveled there in the storyline.

    I'm not following. So keep the Dark Forest at Dusable Park?
     
  16. Kuba Ohmsford

    Kuba Ohmsford The Seekers The Fated Guild Transferred Character Myths & Legends

    Yes. Sorry, must of drank to much ale. Keep Dark Forest at Dusable. Keep old village at Dusable. New names for new villages.

  17. Robillard Stormcaller

    i would vote against that i think since we have a new location i no longer want to use dusable for multiple reasons:
    tons of muggles
    incredebly dirty
    no camping
    possible police called because people think we are doing something wrong

    not that dusable is bad it served us well while we needed it but why use a inferior place when we can use a much nicer area free from other people

    I think that Kuba is suggesting the right idea. I think that this is clearly a different location, in game and out. Maybe it's part of the Dark Forest, but a different part of the forest. Some of our problems will follow us as we, the village, relocate (or perhaps grew enough that we built a second town), but we have certainly up and moved.

  19. Ufnar Kargaroth

    Ufnar Kargaroth Orc Warrior/Hunter Transferred Character Myths & Legends

    I also agree with this. I've always described the Dark Forest as immense, so that isn't a stretch that this is a part of it still. However, I think this should be a new village altogether.

    Perhaps Kali got overrun or something?

    Who knows... we'll tie in an explanation into the upcoming event. Does everyone agree with that?

    I believe that we should keep using dusable park for our practices, and using our lore to say that the disease came back but was much more powerful and kills most, or kali got pillaged by bandits/raiders while we where defending Tirindale.

    My vote is new name, If wen end up with a name pool i have a few to throw in.
     
  22. Futaba Ohmsford

    I also vote for a new name.
     
  23. Zenarus Knightwalker

    I vote name change.
     
  24. Arilyn Dancer of Blades

    Arilyn Dancer of Blades Human Rogue The Seekers The Fated Guild Transferred Character Myths & Legends

    I also vote for a new name!
     
  25. Ufnar Kargaroth

    Ufnar Kargaroth Orc Warrior/Hunter Transferred Character Myths & Legends

    That's 11 for a name change, thus majority wins. We'll keep the realm as part of the Dark Forest, but set this up as a new village. We can easily tie that in to our event story for September.

    We'll hang on to Dusable as a "if needed" practice area, but I have no plans on returning there for an event unless we are presented with absolutely no other option. I'd really rather use the new land for practices as well, that way our traffic there will help keep the trails, etc tamped down.

    Ok! So start thinking of names for the new village. Post them here, and we will vote on them at our campout next weekend. Vutha's vote counts twice, as it is his property.

    Also, do you guys like my new map proposal above?

    I agree with the dusable plan.. Also using the new place as much as possible. I like the new map placement alot though my little darken enclave became a graveyard but alas I shall find a new one when the time comes! I'm very excited about all the future plans
