I'm just interested in what you guys name your capital ships. I figured it would be a fun thread!
I usually play TEC and name my first few ships very methodically.
1st cap: Kol Battleship
Name: TDN Bahamut
Why?: Because Bahamut is a friggin' mythological serpent-dragon in all of the Final Fantasy games and plus, it sounds like an awesome name. I just got in the habit. Plus he was a beast mid-game (lvl 7-8).
2nd cap: Kol Battleship
Name: TDN Tiamat
Why?: Well, Tiamat was never as strong as Bahamut and usually isn't by the time he rolls out.
3rd cap: Marza Dreadnought
Name: TDN Yiazmat
Why?: Well, I gotta keep with the final-fantasy dragon-related names! Yiazmat was the insanely high HP boss from FFXII for any of you who don't know. And he took way too long to kill. 1.2 million health, methinks? Plus he sounds like he likes to raze planets.
I really run out of names at this point but usually like to keep it mythology related (ie Cerberus, Diablos, Titan, etc). And I don't have a system for the other two races.
Please, someone else tell me names to help me assure myself that I'm not the only dork out there.
