First of all, I'd like to thank all of you who helped contribute to my ideas and who really gave me all the material I needed to initiate my fluff. Karmoon, Darkreaver, Rabbit, ze_Poodle, The Ghost, Saraneth, Xerxes, Mantis, HeZu - I'm sorry if I forgot many others but thank you all ^^
Both for the ideas given on the acctual chapter building in the Chaos Invasion thread, and those who supported, and aided me for the Love and Evil thread as well.
Now comes the toughest (I think) part of the job. Finding an acctual name for the Chapter, which will turn to Chaos. So possibly it might not even be just one name, but two names. The first being a little less important of course, though still relevant to the change. Or possibly just one name, which they'll keep even when they cross over to chaos. - Keeping in mind that it's a fleet-based Chapter, I wouldn't want any eagle, hawk or any sort of reference to something of the sort, since I just don't like birds all that much ^^;
But if you could throw me some ideas that'd be fantastic. Something strong, something punchy. Something that isn't 'like all the others'. Which is of course, even harder haha. Those of you who've read the Chaos Invasion thread especially, know more or less the background I'm working with, so I don't know if that would help any or not. - I was thinking (as far as names are concerned) something along the lines of...
See I can't even think of one! This is worse than having the story all written up and lack the title. - Which is sort of the case here too -.-
Space Phantoms, hmm now that's a good one ^^ I'll wait till we get a few more before I pick. But that one's quite pleasing to the ear.
ooooooh, just made on up:
Well I don't like that one as much as the first one, mostly due to the fact that it reminds me of the Eldar Warp spiders. Plus I don't like spiders too much either ^^; hairy, nasty little things.
With chaos folks you've got two angles to consider. Loyalist and 'refounding.'
Based on their backstory, as betrayed folks and quasi pirates, hrm...
Some varient on pirate might work, Buccaneer won't work since it has a lot of swashbuckler baggage but Cutthroats might work, and its only vaguely sillier then Violators.
Constrainers might be a more useful name, I got that one by looking up "abandon" in my thesaurus. Generally you want to pay attention to three criteria when naming.
1.) It sounds good and not ridiculous. (IE: Don't be the Dark Order of Unspeakable Evil Abyssal Darkness Shadow Reaver Blades.)
2.) Its appropriate to your chapter and their 'theme.' (Calling Space Wolves the Penitent, really wouldn't work)
3.) Its relatively simple. (See example one)
My suggestions are stuff like
The Ardent Watchmen
The Custodians (ties in with that 'its for your own good' vibe I picked up on in the other thread)
I got all of these from flipping through my dictionary.
The executors, not executioners:
executors, people who get things done!
The Executor Chapter
Hmm well I'm liking the Wardens as well, though it lacks something more punchy, like... well regular SMs tend to have a composite name such as 'Blood Ravens' or 'Dark Angels' and so on (i'm also aware others are just a single name, like the Ultramarines) but anyway, Wardens also sounds good, though it makes me think of a Prison that they're guarding, while what I think they want is to set those in the Imperium 'free' Liberate them in a way.
- Executors! That's a good one I was also dancing around, mostly due to Star Craft and the Protoss with their 'Executors' and the like. Hmm.. that doesn't sound too bad. The fleet could be describes as 'Fleet of the Executors' and such ^^ Let's wait for more ideas.
How about 'The Interceptors' or the 'Zephyrs'?
---- EDIT ----
You know you can close this thread or whatnot now ^^ Since I managed to decide on a name. So thanks everyone, I decided to go with Dusk Phantoms. You'll see why in Chapter 2 of my fluff ^^ I'll be posting up chapter 1 soon!
