A nomination doesn't count as a vote. To vote, you need to identify the email address you backed the CrowdSupply campaign with (or just send your vote to my mailbox using that email address).

I wasn't certain if we were supposed to vote again.

I'll vote for my Citosa name.

I have decided to void a large number of these nominations. I am only accepting "Borogrove", "Citosa", "Eniri", "Erumeru", "Galaan", "Miditra", and "Ulu" for the poll, in addition to the ones I nominated. I have also decided to void my own nomination for "Doukutsia", on second consideration.

In most cases, I just don't like the sound.

In these cases, I find the spelling and/or pronunciation to be confusing:

  • Eisago
  • Oruulakh
  • Yngean
  • Vstupit
  • Cvernara
  • Cytobryokya
  • Affidaxitia
  • Quuxbar

In these cases, I find the nominated names to sound too similar to English words I don't want to reference:

  • "Betree" (sounds like "tree")
  • "Arayn" (sounds like "Aryan")
  • "Gitt" (sounds like "git")
  • "Vstupit" (sounds like "stupid")
  • "Poluo" (sounds like "Polio")

I think the name "Borogrove" fits nicely. In this case the name would be an allusion to Lewis Carroll and Jabberwocky (the actual word was borogoves, but that doesn't sound nice as an area name). It also has the same naming pattern as something like Brinstar where the word has two parts, the first is nonsense, and the second is a word. But, rambling aside, I nominate "Borogrove".

I very much enjoy this game, so here are some suggestions off the top of my head; I'm not certain of the theme you're aiming for:
Citosa (sigh-toe-sah)
Cytobryokya (sight-oh-[bry]-oh-kai-ya)
Affidaxitia (affida[vit]-suh-tea-ah)
Erumeru (eh-ru[se]-meh-ru[se])
Yalodalo (yeah-low-da[d]-low)
quuxbar (quux-bar)
ranneyo (ran-eh-yo) (anagram of anneroy)
poluo (poh-loo-oh)
raxity (racks-it-ee)

This is all I came up with over a few minutes.  I hope it's good inspiration, at least.

What about "Cvernara"?

The Gooty Hole

I suppose I should start with some of my own nominations to kick this off:

  • Doukutsia
  • Ishiopia
  • Iridia
  • Crocidolia
  • Aoshi
  • Ransolia

It's about time to decide what the first area of the game should be called.

Please post your nominations here. Nominations will be considered for inclusion on a poll which will be voted on by Milestone 1 backers. Anyone is permitted to submit any number of nominations before March 24.

Voting will begin on March 26. The ballot will be posted as a CrowdSupply update.
