What do you think Tally's city's name would be?
« on: December 29, 2015, 03:56:53 PM »

It's never stated what the name is, so let's discuss  ;D

https://www.google.com/maps/d/edit?mid=zb6gC7lZYCgU.kwlCAfhI5x6c&usp=sharing here's an idea of where tally's city is based on where the other city's/ruins are, and the reason i include this is that Diego is named based on the city it's built on top of, San Diego. Aya's city Yokohama is also named based on the city it's built on top of. So, the name of Tally's city might be based on a city around it.

Because the Rusty Ruins are Seattle, I had the headcanon that the Name of Tallys City is Seattlum. Like Londinum, the city at wich Tally first found the mass drivers of the Extras. And is Tallys City really so far away from Seattle, I mean, you are much faster with a hoverboard then at feet, but that seems neverthless a big distance.

My friends and I went out with a car, a stop watch, and a map and we actually measured out about how far the are apart (we had to assume the roller coaster they mentioned in the book was the one that used to be in Seattle Center so this is approximate but we're pretty sure its good), and by our calculations Tally's city is where current-day Redmond is.
