Help us find the best name for points!
« on: 11/07/16, 11:13am »
Hello,

Points will be awarded for daily quests and other achievements (meeples, etc.). These points will be mainly used to customize your world. How would you like us to call those points?

Our favourite is: King's favours.
Also possible are:
- Queen's favours
- Honour points
- Fame points

What is your favourite? Have you got any other suggestion? I am sure you will have great ideas.

Thanks for your help!

I like the idea of "Happy something".

The money would however be confusing with gold coins. So it is probably better to use a different term.

Thanks for giving your thoughts Lucio!

Thanks Stephanie,

Dollars does not go very well with medieval times (our world is supposed to be in such times).

I like "King's favours" as it goes well with the idea of rewarding players for achieving things. Can you take the opportunity to let me know if you see anything wrong with King's favours?

I like the happy, too.

Here are some more with happy in the name -
  • happycash
  • happy dough
  • happyloot
  • happynotes (like banknotes)

or if you don't like them run together -
  • happy cash
  • happy dough
  • happy loot
  • happy notes

happy points works, too.

When I say each of them out loud, I think happy loot (or happyloot) rolls off the tongue easiest.

How about any of these?

"Meeps"
"Smilies"   ( icon would be a gold coin embossed with a smile face)
"Joysters"  ( a play when shells were used as money, maybe a golden shell shape here?)

Lots of interesting ideas. Keep them coming! One does not know what may come from this brainstorming!

Remember that we need to translate everything. So anything too much related to the English language has less chance of making it.

Happy chips? (Could use some sort of poker icon - works globally - the idea of cashing them in etc)

Happy moola?

Happy bucks?
