    Because of where its predicted to fall, you could also name it after a god of falsehood rather than one more generally of destruction.

    We already have Dolus as a Cabalist; Apate is a female counterpart, a representation of deceit.

    "And Nyx (Night) bare hateful Moros (Doom) and black Ker (Violent Death) and Thanatos (Death), and she bare Hypnos (Sleep) and the tribe of Oneiroi (Dreams). And again the goddess murky Nyx, though she lay with none, bare Momos (Blame) and painful Oizys (Misery), and the Hesperides . . . Also she bare the Moirai (Fates) and the ruthless avenging Keres (Death Fates) . . . Also deadly Nyx bare Nemesis (Envy) to afflict mortal men, and after her, Apate (Deceit) and Philotes (Friendship) and hateful Geras (Old Age) and hardhearted Eris (Strife)."

    Apate can be changed into something like Apathaeia.

    I think some of those other names in that text are cool too...

    Lucifer at one time being proposed name for the tenth planet of the Solar System, and the one Niven and Pournelle used for their novel...

    Daedalus' Hammer would work for SotA World.


    or maybe "Fluffy".

    I am surprised no one has suggested this yet. Since it is large and red, it must be The Guardian.

    Asteroid "DERP"

    Mostly due to all the social engineers I have been reading bout out there on "those" specific sites who have said for the past 3 years that this game was going to fail, "not make it", "Port will go bankrupt", "there is no money" blaa blaa blass .... and... BAM... episode one is done and they are still crunching on.
