    A proper name is bloody well important. Don't expect the 'Singing Violins' to be a group of butchers.

     I'd expect it to be a Blademaster sword.

     I hate the name but not like anything we say matters in the end.

    You wanted the Church gone and got your wish. You wanted Shallam gone and got your wish. You wanted our Divine gone and got your wish. Not like you can kick us in the teeth anymore, we don't have any left.

    Targossans sound weird. How about fusing Refugees and Targossas and just call them ReTargs?

    If I was a refugee when they unveiled that name then this would have been me:

    I keep calling it Tunguska, which would probably be more suitable if the place was over a wide expanse of ice.

    Honestly, the only thing that matters is cool guard types. City name will be irrelevant when we're punching people in the teeth.

    Appropriate, given what happened recently in Russia:

    They did wander the desert for a few years. Have we considered "Shalom"?

    I guess naming the city "Peace" could work. People might keep thinking of it as a greeting though and go, "Hey, let's go explore Hello". Culturally sensitive?

    To be honest I like the name. I do not really see anything wrong with it. It is long and would be hell for anyone with a lisp to say as Beatrice pointed out (and really, who is the jerk that put an 's' in 'lisp'?) but I do not see the big deal. Maybe it is just the name of the area, and maybe the city itself will be named something else. I would honestly be fine with either. There is not going to be a name that everyone agrees on, and Targossas seems as good as any. Maybe it has an important in-game meaning or significance that will explained soon. 

    I get the feeling people are complaining primarily because this is a process, and we are at the most difficult hard part: waiting. It would be really nice if we could start building up the houses while we build the new city, and I hope that we will see change/building much more rapidly now (as in, not 6 more weeks from now). Right now, we are kind of limited in what we can do. PVP is pretty much limited to Hashan which is dying down because, well, I feel like they have been defeated already and it is starting to feel griefy. Ashtan is not enjoyable to fight at all (I really do not want to get into that here) and they often get in the way of fighting Mhaldor as well, although unintentionally at times. 

    I understand these things can take a while, but I think at least some of the complaining is because others just do not really have much else to do. It is a case of creating your own enjoyment, and one can only do that for so long before frustration sets in - as is shown here (from the Shallam players, at least. No idea why the others are complaining too.). Some may truly not like the name, but maybe it will grow on them. It is certainly not the most important part of the city - remember that this is a chance at a fresh slate, something no other city has been offered. Voicing discontent is fine, but I think things might be going a bit too far. 

    All in all, I think everything will be fine once we can start working on the houses, or if we get little assignments now and then to help build the city up. Once we get the opportunity to start actual building and working on consolidating what the new houses will be, I am sure things will be much more enjoyable. I really look forward to seeing the evolution of the city and how things change as buildings are completed. We have waited this long, and we are at a better spot now. Lets try to stay positive and make the most of this. :)

    So uh... Off the topic of names, do you guys have a tent or something? Or are you just kinda standing out in blizzards.

    No one I've talked to likes the name Targossas OOCly (both Achaeans and my poor friends that have to listen to me talk about MUDs). A shame.

    I still like the name Targossas, but I change my stance to 'I like Targossas as the area name around the new city which should deserve a better name.'
