How do you name your new towns?
There I was, a fresh young city planner ready to begin a new settlement for king and country. The group of settlers in front of me turned to look at me for their first set of instructions. So I thought to myself, 'What is the most important thing that a town needs? A good solid name.' So I turned to the settlers and I asked them, "What shall we name our new town?" The reply was almost instant. "Blow that for a lark, there's work to be done lad!"

And that is how the town of Blowing Lark got started, later to be joined by Buggerthat, Yerdaft, and Shovel.

hehehe, that third name seems particularly appropriate given the inhabitants...

Since I almost exclusively play on the mountain map now, my towns tend to be named "___ peak" or "____ valley"... often a metal if I want to add a Dwarven twist.

Other times I've tried calling the town things like "newhope", "brighthope", "newhulme"... but the game seems to take those names as a direct challenge, loading up a big bunch of hostile natives right around the settlers (or often just plonking them into the middle of the one jungle patch).

I do remember one time I tried "the valley of feasts", which was supposed to be a test-town to try out new farm layouts... all of my townfolk spawned in the middle of a barren rock stuck in the middle of the lake. Thanks to scaffolds I was able to get everyone out before they starved (just), but it goes to show the game's sense of irony.
