I suggest a poll. But first, let's nominate names. Each nomination should be seconded.

I nominate:

  • Cirdastan
  • Southmarch
  • New Fax
  • Forgotton (a play on the idea of the forgotten Goddess and the "-ton" suffix denoting a town or borough)
  • Silindria (based on the metal cylinder)

Cirdastan was a joke last game, we all thought it was funny but the context stan I believe is "land of" eg. Kurdistan, land of the Kurds. We are a inter racial community and there is only one Cirda, so it neither works in the real usage nor is contextually usable compared to this worlds conventions of naming nations

I like Cirda's March

Hearthton (As Godess of home and hearth perhaps this would work)

I think Cirdastan would work. It would be the land of Cirda.

I agree that its pronunciation, identical to that of Kurdistan, might ruin the name except as a joke.

I second Cirdastan and would like to nominate Constantinople - Why you say? - People just liked it better that way.

Since the only nomination is for Cirdastan, it would seem that that is the name. Does anyone object?
