    Joke entry:

    Supercalifragilistium: Because it does so many wonderful things it defies all common description. Also probably refers to something copywrited so you prolly can't use it in-game. Doesn't invalidate my point, however.

    Planomadium.... I don't need an alpha key since I've got alpha access, but it's still fun to enter

    Ascion (ahs-ki-on)

    derived from ascent and ancient, since it's a material that can be used as either energy or as improvement to existing materials, it would "ascent" materials to a higher form, advance technology through it's immense power, it would be a short name, because of it's value (like gold has), but also similar to Radon (a strong radioactive material). The ancient part is what makes it mysterious, maybe long forgotten, maybe discovered by an old civilization that long ago crumbled an fell to dust, maybe even overpowered by this materials immense power.

    It could be named something related to energy itself or with it's capacity to improve things. Something like Energite/Energium, Improvite/Improvium...
    I imagine this material as a semitransparent mineral material with a mysterious glowing core, and maybe when found in alien places it could have any kind of alien symbols inscribed on them. I would use this to create massive power generators to power my spaceship and other machines

    And for the funny name, I like "Bossonium", because when you get this, you're the fucking boss.

    +1 for Energium. I just came here to suggest it, but I was late.

    I thinking of Astatine, most rarest material in the known universe, what actually exists

    http://www.npr.org/sections/krulwich...n-the-universe

    Allthough real Astatine is impossible to use due its half-life of 8 hours, due to that its very very very rare.
    Maybe some aliens figured out how to prolong this decaying of the element into something useful

    Talc. It's nice and short, and you can build it into a bunch of cool names. Talc as a refined material, talcum as an ore, talcium as a fuel. Talcium reactor, talc cannon, etc. Mostly it'd just be cool as a name.

    Electrum

    Ancient Egyptions used it

    Electrum was worked and used similarly to gold: chariots, thrones and offering-tables were wrought with it, ceilings, roofs, columns and pyramidions covered with it, amulets, statues and jewellery fashioned from it.

    Also used for lightsaber production

    I put my suggestion in as Xenonium. Xeno a combining form meaning “alien,” “strange,” “guest,” used in the formation of compound words. Xenonium means basically Alien Element lol

    Thanks for the suggestions, Nomads. There are certainly names we can pick from already! Which we will have to do, if there aren't enough votes for a winner.

    Anyway - let's close down the contest by Friday evening - 5 pm Central European time (in 3 days and a couple hours).

    For the funny contest, Weirdinium because that description makes it weird af.

    Now for the serious one, I'll go for Zhandenite, because it sounds really alien, and because of what it does (which has no similarities on earth) I wanted to give it the most alien name possible
