HELP NAME TNW CURRENCY!
« on: March 29, 2021, 12:46:41 PM »
hello bbs!
so, as you know, badlands is implementing their own currency to the new world. the trial run was the mardi gras celebrations. we need to give it a name, so we want to open it up to all of you! please share your ideas here, if there’s one that everyone likes off the bat, we’ll use that, if there are a couple, we will put it up to a vote.

As we don't have much traction here yet, I'm gonna suggest a few names!

Lunet, Solan, Luceri, Rellum, Oro, Zircon

Maybe we just name it Bones after BB's currency so it all ties in?

so bones seems to be the general consensus?

one thing i think is fun about it, considering it was established in the badlands, is that there's an idiom "making one's bones" which is related to criminal empires and having to prove yourself to solidify your reputation in an organisation. so perhaps that could be where the term is stemmed from: people who have bones/money are worthy to the badlands to be able to use the casino, buy from the boutique, purchase drugs, alcohol, cigarettes, weapons from them etc. which was essentially their motivation to create a currency in the first place.
