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.
Hence why tyhey always refur to it as the platimum city. ^_^
But honestly?
Platimum Bay sounds great!

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!

Yay! My 30 minute map is good! ^.^)>

Now I can only hope that opinion is Shared by the Guy I'm rooting for.

When all else fails, spoof.
Duckham (like Gotham XD)
Or mimic real cities, capitals, etc..
Las Duckas
Duckelena
Duckoyo
Ducksilvania
Bosduck
New Duck
Duckattle

Otherwise, I'm fine with Platinum bay/city with the nickname of Duck bay.
(Maybe people get randomly attacked by ducks?)

wow that is one awesome map were like “starving artists on a grand scale”, i guess we need other people to build in the “details” of specific areas. Hey maybe we could do that, people calling in dibs on different areas. Then people can reference it when they do their side story settings.

Just an added thought, since we have a map and all, we can have a tackboard on where everybody else is according to the map (something like google maps), we'd need to update it along with the current storyline though.

another thought “wow this civil war thing is exploding like crazy, havent seen anything like this”

Maybe there was an incident a while ago where something scattered over the city caused the Ducks to go nuts and attack people?

Croydon, South London, England.

I wouldn't recommend it. It's full of chavs.

Wait, are you english too? You use the word “chav” when most americans would use “Wigga”

Ok, we've gots ourselves a map. Anyone care to start designing how individual places look?

Like I said, backgrounds ain't my forte, but I'll throw my hat into the ring. Mainly cuz I really want to design the radio building and get a little say in how Riot base turns out.

I like the second idea best but you could combine elements of both.

Dibs on St. Augustine's Catholic Church!

So what exactly is expected of us? Visual concepts (i.e. what it would actually look like if you were standing infront of it) or structural plans (i.e. maps of the place) or both. I'm happy to do both… I just don't want to go crazy overboard if everyone else is just doing one drawing. ^___^'

Visual concepts preferably, though I won't stop you if you wanna draw a floorplan too.

i feel like drawing the type of cemetery you'd see in the old parts of the philipines… a huge maze of randomly stacked tombs, that place was cool

EDIT: ok got it done, i got lazy half way through and began drawing normal tombstones, i guess those people are more important

Guys, just popping in here to say, YOU ARE ALL DOING GREAT!

I love to see that all of you are collaborating so well at this. When the town's fully designed, let me know! We'll start using the city and it's history as soon as possible!

Great work. Glad to see you guys work well together.

Oh man.

I'm gonna put this out there even though I'm not gonna put up a wide-angle sketch of these places for a while:


Adagio's spook joints-
Abandoned Factory, once used to manufacture some unknown mechanical product, later bought and modified to manufacture chemical fertilizer, bought one more time and changed into a specialty vehicle assembly line before being abandoned altogether about seventy years ago. It has fallen into disrepair.

Derelict Asylum, located in the seedier parts of the city, it was abandoned when the asylums program in Platinum City lost its funding about fifty years ago, helped along by rumors of horror stories going on behind closed doors. It has fallen into disrepair.

Sewers, mostly the sewers running in the less-travelled underground portions, of the south side of Platinum City, which have tunnels that run out directly into the bay.

Closed portions of the maintenence tunnels underneath the suspension bridge that connects Florence Island to the mainland.
Sparkimus Prime….ENTER THE FRAY.

I'M WITH RIOT

Well, it looks like the showdown's gonna be in Platinum Bay/City, but it's happening all over, just slowly moving towards there.

true, thats alota people to keep track of

I can take a crack at it. Just give me a decent world map, and keep me up-dated on current possitions, and I can do it.

Also, does the city have some kind of abandoned factory with lots and lots of dangerous machines? If it doesn't, it should, and if it does, I'd like to take a crack at it.


And, on a side note, who's story is currently between New York, New York(where my story has just lead too.) and Platinum Bay/city?(I prefer bay personaly.)

I've got some pretty easy travel time to L.A.
The J originates from the one of the best named cities in California.

It is in the Inland Empire.

A town called….

Rancho Cucamonga. 45 min from LA about 2 hours from SD.

You're pretty brave thinking about taking on something potentially pretty huge. Good luck if you do decided to.
