n.
1. A cavity, gap, or space: a hollow behind a wall.
2. An indented or concave surface or area.
3. A void; an emptiness: a hollow in one's life.
4. A small valley between mountains.


And thus I realised people are voting to call it Void City. Haha.

Hahaha! Oh Ben!

I didn't think of that. Hollow City just sounded cool.. but now that Ben pointed out it's similarities... ugh.
I don't want this to be VOID. Void city is its own special thing and I don't want to cause any drama.

It is a little far-fetched connection, don't you think?

So, even though you and many others like the name we now can't use it because you think someone at Void might possibly maybe not like it if they ever see it?
Can you please make a list of synonyms/names/concepts that Void might not like so we can avoid them?

Arcadia has always been different from Void and it will always be.

I think so. Edit: The I think so was to the 'far-fetched connection thing'. It is a little far-fetched and I doubt it will cause any problems. Five is fast, Ninja-ing in before I even finished this little post!

But if its a problem then I vote Cheerful Oyster and we go on with business as usual.

Edit: But honestly I still think Hollow City is the raddest of rad.

Yeah thats because while my vote was on Proton Winter, when I saw that Cheerful Oyster was able to be tied up...well.

YOU KNOW WHAT I DID.

I fell like nobody is totally fine with any of these suggestion for several reasons so i just do some brainstorming again
I would prefer a name that still connects to the arcadian history. So i guess having arcadia in the name still makes sense. also phalanx as a new part of the arcadian daily life is also a nice part. its representing the essense of the government and the life in zhis town.

The easiest name for me would be:

Arcadian phalanx

But well there must be a better solution:
arcadian property
Arcadia - you get your chance!
Phalanx - arcadia is watching you!

Hmmm i hope i get better things down soon. im not even sure wheather we are still in need of that :/

I like Hollow City and Last Barricade, for their neutral and 'raw'-ish sounding names. So I voted for those, of course!

I haven't been drawing anything these couple of months, and just now I noticed how much my skills dropped. I guess drawing ain't like cycling :\ Dayum.

So nero's back!
