Thread: My bad guys need a name

  1. #21
    Well, since all of my original suggestions were patently ignored, I suggest you name your bad guys Dave. Every one of them is named Dave. Their leader is Dave the Cat. He likes bits of string and hates the vacuum cleaner. Boom! Done!

    Everyone: Uh... No.

    No, Dave the Cat is buried under the apple tree in the back garden, he was sixteen and a half kilos of very large black and white cat who used to sleep on his back and snore.

    I like Olly Buckle's suggestion of "The Church" but I just want to see if it can be tweaked a little. What do y'all think of these?:

    -The Fold
    -The Basilica
    -The Creed
    -The Chancel
    -The Order
    -The Chapelry
    -The Synod
    -The Quorum
    Somewhere... Beyond the sea...

    There's a band called the Church. They own the trademark. I've seen four of the above in various books.

    I love that band, especially their older stuff. "Reptile," was their breakout hit. I remember watching the music video on a huge screen, outside of Shibuya train station, back in 1989/1990, waiting for a girlfriend.

    Also, there's a book called, "The Electronic Church," by an author.... Last name of Somers. It's a trilogy, I think. The main character's named Avery Cates. Good cyberpunk.

    simple is good.
    suspending disbelief is complex
    when
    dealing with emotionally charged material
    and
    those are realtime charges with current impact.

    don't forget the natural sacred places
    in your quest.
    monolith?
    incorporeal aspects.
    THOT?
    *nods*

    A band called 'The Church' would surely be an infringement, but I can't see it with a religious group. If in doubt one could add an 'of' as in The Church of Rome, or the C of E.

    Trademark ownership is trademark ownership. Add the 'of'. The Church haven't sold an LP in years, they prolly need the money.
