What To Call It?

Post  Stairc -Dan Felder on Sat Jul 21, 2012 7:30 pm

Hey, I'm starting to compile the first utility expansion and I can't think of a name for it. These are the only names I have so far and I'm not 100% wild about any of them.

The Complete Equestrian
The Essential Equestrian
The Utility Belt
Bag of Tricks
Talent Show
The Mare-Cave

The first combat expansion is probably going to be called Equine Power, but I'm very open to new ideas of what to call that too.

Hmm... I see your hesitation. I'm not totally sold on any of those, either.
But to put a vote on something, I think I'd choose Utility Belt. Mainly because it's got "Utility" in the title.

I would place my vote on Utility Belt as well, given that list.

Given the options we have, I personally favor Utility Belt as well (adding Mare-Do-Well to the front makes it too wordy). For some reason, though, I keep trying to think of something involving Trixie; she's all about the utility rather than combat. Trixie's Tricks? Trixie's Bag of Tricks?

Mare Beetons book of tricks and tips for ponys of all ages- a guide for everyday life.

After the famous mrs beeton and her cookbook (well, her book of household managment, but with over 900 pages of recipes what else would you call it?). A bit wordy and old fashioned. If nobody likes it count me in for utility belt instead.

Referencing something's always good, but this particular title is rather wordy for me.

Seems like a lot of votes for The Utility Belt.

Anyone have any other options?

While "The Utility Belt" may not be 100% perfect it certainly works well and sounds good.

Hum, in sports a utility player is one who can fill many positions, so maybe the Utility Players Handbook? Hum, we are improving our character, so maybe basing it of a self help book or something. Better Pony Today? That looks wierd now that i wrote it. Mail Order Magic Tricks? Utility Today Magazine?

I still like my original idea- Mare Beetons book of tricks and tips for ponies of all ages- a guide to everyday life.

One more vote for the Utility Belt.

Alternate choice of name: The Talent Show.

The Talent Show is another good option. Anyone prefer that to The Utility Belt?

I like the Talent Show more than the Utility Belt, if only because the nature of utility talents make the names fit better.

Yeah, I'd go with Talent Show, after all, I think I only ever saw Pinkie Pie wearing a belt in the show.

How about "The FUtility of trying to name this Handbook"? =P

Isn't Talent Show going to get confusing because we have things called Talents?
