    Acronyms

    Skål (Swedish/Norwegian/Danish for Cheers! Can’t get much more positive than a toast )

    SKAL = StarKillers Arctic Lands

    SKAL = Starkillers Kulokhar Arctic Landfall (Landfall could relate to the idea of a back story, ie the place you arrived)

    Other ideas

    Khafn (or Khafen) sounds sort of Arkadian and would mean Kulokhar Haven

    Arctic Haven Kulokhar =AHK pronounced ark, relates to planet name and also to a place of safety as regards backstory

    I picked up the Kulokhar idea again since it seems fitting to use, and what does everyone think of "Kulokhar's Prospect" ?
    It would have a simbolic meaning, while keeping some geography to it due to te regional name (and arkadian reference)

    Or: "Starkiller's Prospect"?


    Im still open to suggestions and am reading them all trust me :) I am also tryig to provide my own input on what im enjoying aswell, and seriously, all feedback and help so far has been great! And would like to thank for the latest feedbacks for these last two suggestions ;)

    I like Kulokhar Prospect as reflects the Arkadian origin

    Prospect - meanings...
    1. hope · expectation · anticipation ·
    2. a place likely to yield mineral deposits.
    3. a viewpoint commanding a magnificent landscape

    seems to work at several levels :)

    though Starkiller's Prospect would give a nice sense of ownership.

    I might just go for Starkiller's Prospect, might be placing a poll on the thread to see what people think ;)

    I would suggest Starkiller's Dark Province or Starkiller's Dark Vilayet.

    Maybe replace Dark with Caligo so Starkiller's Caligo Vilayet.

    There is short story called Dark Vilayet in Serbian culture. I think it can be applied to EU. :)
    It goes something like this:

    It has been told that one King in the old days, coming with his army to the end of the World, has stepped in the Dark Vilayet where you never see anything. When they entered in the Dark Vilayet, they can't see anything but they have felt some kind of stones under their feet and some voice was yelling from Darkness: "Who bring these stones with him will regret, who doesn't bring these stones with him will regret".

    Some of people was thinking: "If I will regret, why should I take any of them. I will leave them here".
    Others: "If I will regret anyway, maybe I should bring at least some".

    When they have returned from Darkness to this world, those who took some stones with them realized it was all gemstones. Those who didn't took any of stones regretted why they didn't. Those who took few stones regretted why they didn't took more.

    I like the fact there's a background to it, but I trying to build some lore of my own revolving the name :) That's why I also considered not using the region's name or Continent, and just attempt to create something new :p I do like the story though!

    Decided against Stark names cause... Ironman. Ironman. :p

    Just had a random thought, and I'm could be way off base on this one:
    Khorum Coast is also in the arctic, so could naming LA4 with Kulokhar cause some initial confusion for new visitors???

    The rocky formations reminded me of some kind of claw. So id say "Kulokhar`s claws".

    I think so too to some extent, although someone on Caly forums suggested Niflheim as a name for the LA so I thought of: Sentosa's Niflheim :) How's that sound?

    Hm might have something there, although the Reach reference would go to that thought :)

    Interesting using the continental name, it could easily extend to the current fav names like:
    Sentosa's Niflheim
    Sentosa's Reach
    Sentosa's Fjords
    Sentosa's Starkiller

    I like the last one the most, kinda reads like there's some kick-*** huge mystery to possibly uncover.

    I loved a lot a suggestion from the other forum - really simple, easy to remember and guess position would be obvious for everyone looking at map, no matter if they know the lore or not:

    Antarktica

    ha ha ha I'd want to visit just to look for snow ants at the antArktika

    Dear Ark Devs
    Please consider new mob (LA4 exclusive) suggestion for Snow Ants (any size) if Starkiller names it antArktica/antArktika.

    Yep they are sounding nice imo :) I guess I could remake the poll with the 2 best picks from the current one plus some new suggestions I got!

    I didn't really like it as it's just a jumbled bunch of words :( You can't do much with it to be honest, and it feels a bit childish to some extent, I am looking for something a bit more mature

    Well If that were a possibility then I'd consider it xD


    --------\\--------
    Updated the poll now, feel free to revote one the options! I am much obliged for your efforts thus far!

    Seems we are getting closer to finding a name to the LA :D Thanks a bunch so far for the suggestions and feedback, I really apreciate it (must've said this a dozen times already lol)
