The greatest name ever given to a ship in the history of ship name giving.
/tg/ occasionally has some ship name threads, in which the ones like 'She's One of Ours, Sir' is among the most popular.
In one of my games, I worked it out with the player that the ship his character was born on was called the Go Fuck Yourself.
Uneven Elephant is the best Covenant ship name.
What, nobody called for Serenity yet?
I've always wanted to like 'In Amber Clad' but it always sounds grammatically incorrect to me.
That aside, my favourite is the "Heart of the Midlothian", which is also not a bad looking ship, I think.
Also, I've always loved saying 'Dogosse Giar'.
>it always sounds grammatically incorrect to me.
I can see why you would think that; I think that sometimes too. Usually when you see 'clad' it has a hyphen (steel-clad).
Bungie really did have the best fucking ship names. Most of the ship names have such a deep meaning to them, like the briefest poetry. A lot more interesting than naming your ship after locations.
Although in a military context they come across as being very weird. I remember one line in particular as having taken a long time to wrap my head around, and it was something like: "... get back to In Amber Clad." Sounds less like a noun and more like someone randomly threw in an excerpt of Shakespeare into normal speech.
They do pretty well with references. Ship names and scene/checkpoint names are pretty obvious without becoming annoying, but some are nice and subtle. I didn't realize Noble Six was a reference to the Charge of the Light Brigade (I assume it is, at least) until well after I finished the game.
Neal Asher's got some decent ship/AI names like the Jack Ketch. He's no Ian M Banks though.
It's not saying that something IS amber-clad, it's saying that something is IN amber clad.
Clad in amber. In amber clad.
Pretty sure it's not incorrect, it's just phrased in an uncommon way.
IMB? But yeah Destiny has a lot of great item/ship names, and the flavor text really completes it. My favorite is probably:
The Dirigible Incorrigible - "The price is negligible."
You all go fuck yourselves.
I got the bitter, but where was the sweet part?
when the main character dies?or when the Culture agent kills herself?or maybe when the love interest gets killed, that was pretty sweet. Oh no, wait, it was definitely when all the secondary characters died in horrible ways.
twolife forms that survived were the ones I couldn't give less of a shit about.
No love for The Absolution?
>Pretty sure it's saying that something is IN amber clad.
I said that exact thing in my post but decided to nix it. I regret that.
Pfft. Here's a real man's ship.
YOU WANT CATAPULTS?! WE GOT A LOT. GUNS? THOSE TOO. EVERYTHING ELSE? PROBABLY. GOT EVERYTHING!
Tlahuixcalpantecutli besides being the Lord of the Dawn was considered an incarnation of Quetzalcoatl. Aztec myths tell how Quetzacoatl, allowed himself to be seduced by Tezcatlipoca, but through remorse threw himself onto a funeral pyre. Then after his death, his heart became the morning-star identified with the god Tlahuixcalpantecutli. He was also known as ('lord in the house of twilight' Aztec Gods and Goddess have many incarnations along with multi-dimensional lives
You both need Look to Windward. The Culture/Idirian war really fucked many a folk up.
