Today, I am feeling uncreative, and so I beg your aid in a story I am writing for the Great NanoWrimo Prompt Call.
I point your attention, if I may, to the world of Things Unspoken.
Cities/places already in existence include
Scheffenon, the Scheif Harbor, high on the Northern Sea (where there are Cornesc-speaking people)
(Scheffenon isnot a Cornesc word, but one from the people who had been here before)
Orschëst, down by the southern border
Corthwin (where the Ash remains unburnt)
the western cities, the ones that had once belonged to an Empire called only To (never the To Empire, the Tovan nation, or anything else, just To)
Here is a very draft map – http://www.lynthornealder.com/2015/04/28/what-happens-in-meetings-a-draft-map-of-part-of-the-unspoken-world/
So! I need another city. There’s sort of obviously not one language to this Empire, so it doesn’t have to sound like those above, but should sound… “exotic?” Well, not Springfield or Washington, let’s go with that.
(Most of my named people have Eastern-European-inspired names, just as a note)
(If I get more than one, i’ll clearly just have to write another story)
Unterforess. (Something about a long-ago military installation?)
Did the empire called “To” assign meaning to its name (anything like “to” in English?), or was it just a sound/abstract name?
I believe that was just a sound.
