I’ve been thinking long and hard about allowing players to not only rename their character but also some of the more important non-player characters, much like the way the older Final Fantasy’s worked. Each char would have a “real” name but upon acquiring/meeting them you’d have the option to rename them.
Blackraven is it? Does this with the lover, I’m talking more on the scale of being able to rename everyone so say for e.g. all the cathedral survivors in zombie exodus, to give you an idea of scale.
There are countless pros and cons ofc.
The obvious argument being more personal stories vs confusion/over complication and difficult cross-reference (One persons’ Jenny may be another’s Lisa) etc.
So I just thought I’d gather some thoughts other than my own before making a concrete decision. Any suggestion is much appreciated!
