Wanted to get some opinions on this. Anyone have any other name(s) to propose? I have yet to see any sea combat, so maybe marine isn't technically correct? Dunno...
Fog Men > play on frog men?
Icarii > Icarus soldiers?
In the world of airships, suspendium exists, so "Navy" probably refers to airships instead of sea ships. But maybe they used sea ships before they figured out how to control suspenduim lift? Did they have Navies before then?
But anyways, I think Air Marines is a good term as long as they are associated with ships.
I don't see any reason not to give our sky buccaneers their own names though. How about, "Storm Soldiers?"
Yeah, I think "Air Marines" as a semi-backformation of "Space Marines" makes a certain amount of sense. However, I absolutely want to use all your suggestions as names for different kind of air pirate. :D
Ooh! Will they wear mismatches uniforms, sneak-attack your less guarded cities, and have skull and crossbones on their coat of arms?
That is roughly the plan, yes. :)
