In this discussion
folks suggested I change the name of my rpg, which is currently Narrative Adventures Made Easy
I asked my wife about the name, and she doesn't like it either. So change it we should!
Brainstorming, I can think of a few kinds of game names.1. What the PCs do
I like this best. Dogs in the Vineyard
is a good example.2. What makes the game mechanics special?
is the classic example.3. What exemplifies the setting?
Dungeons? Dragons? Cthulhu? Toons?4. Which type of people would enjoy the game?
I cannot think of examples off the top of my head, but consider a game title with phrases such as "for kids" or "solo PC" or "moral conundrums".
What else makes a game's name?
Any specific suggestions?
I would love to use Skills Talents Powers
which blends the game mechanics and setting nicely. But too many things have the initials STP.
I am thinking of Upholding Power
which could work if I more strongly suggest that a Player's first PC be a Champion
. Is such a suggestion more limiting or helpful?
At the end of December I had ideas involving "something something For Everyone" but did not write them down and have now forgotten them.
Thanks for any help!
