THE ENDLESS BREATHLESS HOURS BEFORE THE DAWN

MINUS TEN AND COUNTING

THOSE WHO DID COULD NOT HAVE WITHOUT ME

AS FROM A SLINGSHOT HURLED

A GLITTERING DISTANT SHORE

THE DUST OF HOPE

OUR FRAGILE FLESH AND STEEL

(these are all from lyrics from the compilation album Minus Ten and Counting)

mecha names 

ripping off my favorite kipling poem as rendered by Leslie:

MULTIPLE CONFUSION

TO FAIL AND KNOW WE FAIL

IN SPITE OF BEING BROKEN

THE BURDEN OF THE ODDS

mecha names 

THE JOYS WE ONCE HAD KNOWN

any three-person group, each piloting one of JOY and HOPE and TERROR

mecha names 

THE PROMISE OF BETTER DAYS

MISTRESS OF THE SKIES

PRIDE AGAINST THE WIND

mecha names 

A TIGER TO ITS MEAT

LIKE A HURT LIVING THING

RAMPANT FARE EVASION

GRIT YOUR TEETH AND CRAWL (for a transportation vehicle)

mecha names 

JAGGED SHARD OF HATE

THE EVER-LENGTHENING SHORE

SUCH BOLD AND BLOODY DAYS

mecha names 

TEN THOUSAND HANDS
BLOODSONG

mecha names 

MY DREAMS ARE ALL OF YOU

WITH THE WONDER OF A CHILD

A STAR TO GUIDE HER BY

mecha names 

THE KIND THAT BRINGS YOU HOME

mecha names 

SOON OR LATER

THE UNRELENTING TEXT

mecha names offshoot 

THE UNRELENTING TEXT is, of course, a HORUS Goblin with Liturgicode and Celestial Shackles

mecha names 

ALL WE HAVE OF FREEDOM

TIME WILL CURE

mecha names 

THEY'RE FLANKING US

THATS THE WAY IT'S DONE

LOOKS LIKE *YOU* GOT THIS DOWN

YEAHH!! NOW YOU'VE GOT IT!

( thanks @alexandria )

mecha names 

FORGOTTEN TO FEAR
FIRE-BREATHING DAUGHTER (hee hee)
UNFORGOTTEN HOURS
THE BEAST REMAINS

SOME OTHER DEEP
QUEEN OF DARKNESS
HER COLD ARMS

THE DEATH OF SALSA DANCING

IN THE WEE HOURS OF THE MORNING A DOVE

MY BODY MY HOME

PETAL OF A FRACTAL LOTUS

E CAMARADE ALÉE ENFLAMME

ARJA, MK 2

AMA-57 BUGLE CALL

WITNESS YOU! THE FLESH HAS FALLEN AND THE KNOWLEDGE ELECTRIC COURSES THROUGH YOUR BODY (it’s KNOWLEDGE ELECTRIC for short)

MARCELIUS THE TALL

ARA BELLI

EXALTATION EMPORIUM

mecha names 

@tindall whoops I forgot my own lore, it should be AMG-57 not AMA.

mecha names 

@tindall I have or can make up lore for any of these, also.

mecha names 

@tindall we call her Kind for short. she’s autonomous, massively huge, and she painted her own detailing in dayglow pink (that was one of the first things she did where we were like _oh, Kind is a person!_). she lifts us in open palm to her left shoulder where we perch for the ride home. tonight we’ll sit out back watching tapes on an old combo vcr+tv. decaying vhs copies of patlabor, or episodes of the transformers cartoon recorded off broadcast tv complete with old timey commercials

mecha names 

@tindall she likes the episodes with arcee in them best, and we pretty much agree

mecha names 

@tindall Just remembered "Mortgage" means "death pledge" so this one is really brütal and on-brand even though it sounded ironic

mecha names 

@witchfynder_finder they're all stolen from Leslie Fish songs uwu

mecha names 

@tindall That's okay, my mech name is just a Star Wars quote =P

mecha names 

@tindall Have you read the Revelation Space series? Some great ship names in that series.

mecha names 

@tindall 👍 If you can make it through the first book (which jumps around in time a bit), the rest are more linear.

If Star Citizen ever makes it to release, my main ship is going to be "Nostalgia for Belafonte"

re: mecha name, nerding out about writing 

@tindall
I was looking for a name for a massive land-vehicle that takes an important role in a story that I'm writing

«Mwawerźjenli·wertónoda» ((more-good)-days·(good-declaration)-the), or "The Promise of Better Days" is a very fitting name for said vehicle

Thanks for the inspiration!

re: mecha name, nerding out about writing 

@domino absolutely! I'd love to read this story, and learn more about your conlang!
