    /usr/bin/EvilPlan (Planet Buster building base)
    Silicon Valley

    Akiria

    Tassagrad (on slope below The Tower of Googlie)
    Lemmington

    Wired Village

    I second DBTS's "Fire Wall" idea. That would be an excelent name for a base that is defensive in nature and between us and an enemy. Unfortunatly we havent got any base like that so lets put that on the back burner untill something comes along that fits well.

    Also I was wondering are base name poles linked to a specific location or are they independent of location. I would very much prefer they be location based as the "And Or Gate" name realy needs to be that canal base at 81/63 or the name losses half its meaning.

    This brings up another Point, if "And Or Gate" wins we have to name the water on western side the "And Bay" and the water to the east "Or Straits"

    Vote for Tassagrad and a new game will come from the gods.

    Well then just don't vote on it.
    I fully updated the list and did a little reorganizing, so a poll can be held any time.

    Thank you

    I don't think we should name bases after the gods of the game. They're not really CyCon, which is after all who we are. Tassagrad also sounds like a Hive base rather than a CyCon base.
    Agreed!

    How about Wall of Fire instead of fire wall? Or even "Great walls of Fire"!

    Well, we could have a base built at the top of a mountain called "The Tower of Googlie" and have Tassagrad on the slope up to it although I suggest this because of the fond memories of being Mayor of New Tassagrad of my deep love and respect for our Godhood team

    Pinnacle of Logic sounds good.

    Base name suggestions: Binary Bastion, Efficiency Edifice, Input Gates, Output Node, Collective Conglomeration, Full-technology integration experiment (this could be a base where we begin our first experiments in complete cybernetic integration into the government. The process would be long and difficult, but we can finally complete the experiment when we discover digital sentience).

    What about "Pinacle of Logic"? Not sure on the spelling, but it seems suitable for a mountain location.
