Wing Name Suggestions!
« on: 20 Jun 2012 at 04:59 AM »
Hey guys!

Our lovely D'ren is going to be reinstating wings and the accompanying practices... soon. However, we would like to request your help with coming up with wing names. Ideally, we would like about 20 - 25 wing names, which we will then use a process of elimination (voting xD) to pick out our 10 favourites.

Wing names should be meaningful, as far as the Katilan's are concerned - such as the way the first clutch was named 'Renewed Hope'.

We will take suggestions until the 30th, and then do votes for 1 week to cut it back to the favourite 10 of the members. Both Players, Pending and Inactive are welcome to have an input.

It may be silly, but what about naming the wings after what they left behind in the North? Like Fort wing, Benden wing, Ruatha or Ista wing, etc?

IC, I don't know that that would float, since it would negate the effect of being "Katilan" as opposed to following the natural desire to be separated by the different weyrs pre-plague.

How would someone from Benden feel, being assigned to an Ista named Wing? Someone from Telgar to High Reaches? Etc.

I'm not against it, I just don't think it would be something that would go down well IC.

Then again, I could be wrong.

That was my initial idea as well, Sexi. But I do believe the Weyrleadership would prefer to promote unity and the idea of being 'Katilan'.

I'd like something that is meaningful, not just 'ooh, this is a pretty theme!'. I'd considered southern landmarks, but I don't know how familiar most of them would be. I do know this is soon enough after landing that there should be some knowledge of it, so colony ships/etc may not be unrealistic..but there aren't many actual names and whatnot lurking in that idea.

Could name them after heroes, but most of the Northern weyrs have that covered. /ponder

Lol, we could let the wingleaders each name their own wing

EDIT: Had an idea for wing naming, which I will present once the rosters are actually posted. Feel free to keep suggesting names, though! We still need them

I know N'gelt would rage if he was put into a wing named after any Weyr but Telgar. xD

Hmmm wing names..

I have no ideas and would have assumed the wings would be named after the wingleader or just numbered.

True. Very true.

Mind you, I remember most of the original V1 SPW wing names. Most notably "Sneaking Thieves" xD
