...should probably start coming up with ideas for a name.  Any suggestions?  Needs to sound old and medieval.

Kingdom of Cydonia, perhaps?

or you could just use an online generator, such as http://www.namegenerator.biz/kingdom-name-generator.php

I came up with it.
and since ours doesn't seem like coming into existence anytime soon, I'll let the name be used by them.

Fair enough. It is a nice name after all. :)

Thanks guys, this is all really helping, and damn I sure hope it doesn't turn out like osgiliath...
I was thinking of making the name Germanic, since Em and I are German, and it would fit the time frame. 
I'll set up a poll of names soon, so keep the ideas coming:P

Name it

RAVENHOLM
Ravenholm is probably worse than Osgiliath. Osgiliath was simply abandoned because of proximity to Minas Morgul. Ravenholm became infected with alien zombies

They're just not original. I mean something like Ravengiliath would be original even though it's just a combination of two names. Generally however you should look for a name in the main culture's language. So look at names for Scandinavian or German cities. (eg. Berlin, Copenhagen, Stockholm, Hamburg...) then name it from a combination of the best city names in your opinion.

Those archery targets look like they belong to the Fighter's Guild.  You should build the Mage's and Thieves' guild too :P

Once we expand (soon i'm hoping) we're going to make many more builds, including a church/graveyard, palace, mage's tower, and many more
