AFPDip Game Names

AFPDip Game Names

It has been tradition that each game on AFPDip is given a unique identifying name, once that game is started then no other game can use that name (though if a game never gets off the ground then the name may be reused).

Games used on AFPDip should not be used on AFPCiv, and vice-versa. This is because there will be overlap in the populations of these lists.

This file has been created to fulfil three functions

  1. To provide a list of names which have been used.
  2. To allow a GM to reserve a name for their next games (I feel a maximum of two reservations is sufficient).
  3. To provide suggestions for future game names for when the mind goes blank.

Note, if a name is NOT on the list, it does not mean that it may not be used, however if a name has been reserved then it may not be used unless the reserver agrees.

Reserved names

The games in this section may or may not come to fruition, GMs are asked to keep me informed as to the status of the game, especially if the name becomes available for someone else. These names may not be used without the consent of the reserver. In the event that the reserver leaves the list, or the name is dormant for two years (without re-reservation or use) then the name will be freed.

Freed up names

This section lists game names which were reserved, but which the GM has relinquished without a game starting under that name.

Possible names

This is a list of possible game names, compiled to provide inspiration to future GMs. Nb. These are ideas for game names - not a list of character names.
If a name, is not on the list, please suggest it.
The bigger the list is, the more it serves it's purpose.

If you want to GM a game you do not have to choose a name from this list, but please remind me to update the lists above so that your name is reserved.

A reference has been given for each name, this may not be the only, or best, reference, but it gives a way to look up the name.

Please check this list for errors in the spelling of a name, or the reference given to a name. A reference has been given for each name, this may not be the only, or best, reference, but it gives a way to look up the name.
