When we liberated the Chains of Judgment, we rechristened it the Unchained.

In an RT game, we towed the Righteous Path back to Drydock and re-launched it as our flagship, The Righteous Fury. If we fell to Chaos I can only assume we'd rename it again to The Zealous Hatred.

We prefer simple names:-

'Defiant'; 'Vendetta'; 'Resolution', 'Dark Royal'; 'Predator'; 'Serenity'; etc

 

We look at it like this. in a Loosing fire fight & by the time you say, "everyone get back to 'False-Emperor's misbegotten hope for the Future'!!" the enemy has shot you, & made amusing balloon animals of your lower intestines. :blink:

Where as, "Everyone! Vendetta, now!" is quick & you have already cheesed it before the enemy has realized anyone spoke.

 

Of course, if I could convince anyone, I would call it 'Jellied Wombat'. :D

What's wrong with shouting "Everyone, back to the ship!"?

 

Or "MOVE!"

 

Or "Sod this, I'm off!"

 

Or "You're all expendible!"

 

And game mechanics wise, it would be a free action either way. Then a double move action to turn tail.

Calling it 'the ship' may offend the ship's spirit.  :D

 

Don't really use the game mechanics for speech. If you can say it quick enough, odd awareness test to check other characters heard you, then that is how long it takes to say it.

If you're close enough to the ship to offend the Machine Spirit by shouting; a quick awareness test to spot your other crewmen running back towards it shouting "AAAAAGHHH!!!" should be ok. :P

I figured it would be pretty neat to name a ship after ancient Egyptian or Babylonian gods, or after those of whatever ancient civilization of Terra comes to mind. :D Or maybe it would be fun to name ships after characters and personalities we know from real life (after the stories about them have been twisted and circulated for a few dozen millenia).

How's about "The Gift Horse," "Foot in Door," "Conclusions," "Now and Then," "Fingers Crossed," "Someone's Leg," "Between the Lines," "The Flow," "Dead Body," "Two Cents," "Eating You," "Long Story," "Dressed to Kill," "Beg to Differ," "Said than Done," "The Loop," and "I Disagree!"

Our group ended up with a carrier called the Will of Tzeench.

Sounds pompous but with a Despoiler-class supercarrier loaded to the gunwhales with bombers on call, few people will be prepared to point that out.

 

The Horus Heresy books have quite a few named warships. My personal favourite is the Night Lords warship Blade In The Back.

Just avoid the culture`s naming conventions where sentient ships pick random phrases they enjoy and get criticised for lacking gravitas.

 

e.g.

The frank and honest exchange of views (although if you latin this up it`d be an excellent name for a superheavy gunship.)

deplorable gravitas shortfall

the month of sundays

 

Think more menacing, less rambling.

 

Here`s some woefully innacurate latin off the top of my head.

 

e.g.

Umbra Domina - Dark Lady

Nox Venti - Voice of Darkness 

Lex Mori - Death`s Law

Gladius Talioni - Vengeful Blade

Vertitas Mortis - True Death
