There should be some sort of snack production factory so that there can be a food fight. And a school too so that bad guys can hold poor innocent kids hostage T_T

I'm from Wiltshire, England… which isn't the best place to meet fellow crazy people like me. There seem to be a hell of a lot of old people.

Eh, just do it at a city form of the Duck. We'll call it…DrunkDuck-ville/city/shire.

Platinum City sounds awesome. :D

Duckville or Duckton also sound good, especially with a “new” in front; “New Duckton”.

But Platinum City sounds great. ^_^

how about Duckburg… wait I think that's taken. We could just use the same initials. Platinum city I think is the best idea so far though.

The ending "city might be a bit over done though. Platinum Bay? Platinapolis? Platipus?

Platinum something it probably the best idea.

Wherever this ends up being, we'll need a design as soon as possible.

I say Platinum Bay or Platinum Beach. If we are going to have a creepy waterside abandoned carnival, it'd be best to keep it seaside.

It would also allow for fantastic water/ice battles over the bay. (For flying, swimming, speedy or ice powered heroes)

I personally think that Platinum Bay sound the best. Should we work on a city map?

Certainly. I tacked on the rest of the suggestions to my big list of things we should have in the city. (Though truth to tell, I am a bit morally opposed to the holding children hostage thing, but it's everyone's city, so..)

Now a map is good and all, but anyone good at drawing backgorunds care to draw out the actual locations to complement the map? Y'know, how they'd look in the background?

You can count me out on cityscapes(Unless you feel that boxes with labels are sufficient), but I could probably make a map showing where everything is. That way it could be consistant.

We also need secret headquarters for Riot and Zac; because it would be cool.

Sure, I'll go for it. Unfortunately I don't live in a city; so it might look like it's designed by a deranged platipus. Expect them up later today.

Meh, sorry this took me so long (I even still have to sketch the places) My parents took me out bowling and stuff, it was fun.

In anycase Here's the Map:


And here's the Key(Should include most of what Hero asked for):
1. Platinum Bay Penitentiary (prison)
2. Platinum Bay City Hall
3. Bayside Cemetery
4. Platinum Bay Community Hospital
5. Gothic Cathedral which towers above the area with its clocktower (St. Michaels)
6. Ambrose Towers mini-mall (Abandoned after a tidalwave hit the area; half finished)
7. Gladchip Industries HQ
8. The Daily Sand (Newspaper/television station(Channel 4 news))
9. 97.6 Platinum bay Weather and News
10. Florence Island(With secret seaside cave)
11. Bayside First Methodist church
12. St. Augustine's Catholic Church (Abandoned after tidalwave hit the area)
13. Aster's Carnival of the Bizarre (Abandoned, even before the tidal wave hit; due to bankruptcy)
14. Oakland Park
15, 16, 17. Platinum Bay City schools (Elementary, middle and high)
18. Platinum Bay convention Center (Currently hosting The Platinum area Comicon)
19. Zac Base- a mountain complex with barracks, and other military-like features; well established)
20. Riot Base- an underwater resort and casino that went bankrupt and was abandoned, but Hero fixed it up and it now serves as Riot's base of operations. It can only be accessed from Florence Island, the sewer-tunnels, and the Pier 56 restaurant.

Yeah, I can understand how some people could find that offensive. Perhaps I've been reading too much Death Note ^_^ …Hmmmm, maybe the kids could hold the villians (or heros) hostage instead, lol. Could be used to add in a few extra cameos :)

Gwen, that map is friggin awesome! It would have taken me forever to get all the locations situated so well. Looks like a perfect Platinum Bay (or whatever we're going to call it).

Tokyo population wise, Mount Isa in Australia area wise, at least I belive that's correct.

That's a fine lookin' city Guen. I love the whole abandoned section by the beach.

Are we calling it Platinum Bay City or Platinum city? I agree with Pixie, Platinum City sounds the best.

My design is sort of linked to the name being Platinum Bay. Also, I think the (Blank) city is overdone as far as fictional communities are concerened.

I'm in favor of Platinum Bay.

How about Duck Bay, with the Nickname “The Platimum City”
you know, like Boston is ‘Bean Town’ or New York is ‘The Big Apple’

This kind of reminds me of.. what was it.. Duckberg? Was that the name of the city in Duck Tales? You know, where scrooge mcduck's giant money bin was. I thiiink it was Duckberg. Correct me if I'm wrong. :P

Ooh! What was the name of the city where Darkwing Duck lived? Was that duckberg, too?

.. How did I get off topic?

Also, I kind of like willowanderer's idea. The whole nickname thing. Duck Bay DOES sound more like a city, I guess.

I'm sorry; I know that you seem to think it makes more sense… but… Duck Bay? If you were naming a city would you call it Duck Bay?

It is possible, However, that the city is widely called Duck bay due to some hilarious historical story. But, in all comic seriousness; I really think that no one will use the name Duck bay without snickering just a bit.

I'm English, living permanently in New Zealand.

BUT, although My Character bas is set underground somewhere on/insurroundingislands of NZ, and also has his own space cruiser, carriers, air force, fleet, space station…
Yeah, basically, it doesn't matter where it is, 2-4 hours and he can be there.

Alright, kiddies, let's keep out friendship hats on. This is everyone's city and we should take into account all suggestions. We need somesuch democratic way to get this solved, y'know a vote or tally or greco-roman wrestilng or putting it to an jury of judges or something.

I figure this is where I pop in and say, YOU'VE DONE A GREAT JOB BRAIN STORMING.


I'll set up a vote later. But keep up the brainstorming ideas! It's coming out great.

Everything sounds awesome.
I personally like the Platinum Bay/Platinum City name.
;)

That map looks sweet!

Platinum Bay sounds the best to me.

Is the vote gonna be held in the forums or put up on the DD front page? The first would let only people who are genuinely interested have their say and the second would leave the choice DD community as a whole and maybe encourage a few more people to get involved…

*Runs off to try and get her next comic page finished*
