The famous...
Hey this is where you are going to choose the name of the party.

The party name is a classic RPG element with roots in legends, fiction, and stories (The Fellowship of the Ring, The Knights of the Round Table).

Here are some reasons for you to choose a good name:

  • Plotting: A good name can influence or guide party decisions and character actions. It becomes a GM plotting and guidance tool.
  • Style: A good name adds a sense of flair and style to your campaign. It becomes something worth defending and upholding for the PCs, and an element to design and plan around for GMs.
  • Legacy: After the campaign ends, party names are often remembered first and help trigger memories and campaign stories. The party name might even become synonymous with the campaign and become its major identity.
  • Brevity:It's faster referring to your group of characters in-game, out of game, and in your notes by a party name than by listing each PC's name. A party name is also more compelling than calling them The Group. :)


Good Luck!

I like "the Seven". It's a little mysterious. A little ominous.

Re: The famous...
I like the Seven as long as we won't get any new members.  I guess you could argue that The Seven doesn't refer to the number of PC's in the group and reference something else.

The Seven sounds good and a cool monogram for our outfits would identify us unless we prefer to be secretive about that.

Re: The famous...
I'd like to see us somehow linked to the royalty in Waterdeep or the council in Waterdeep as operatives for the royal family or the council either way, each of us entitled to run a business in waterdeep at discount prices.  We would also be offered discounts throughout the city and surrounding area.

Any thoughts?

That is a good train of thought, though Dirk would be more about the priest - church line or a mission place for his type of parishioners snicker :P

Lucky used to work for Neverwinter (perhaps he still does?!?) and would be interested in royal decree with some stipulations.  He has no loyalty here only to Neverwinter!

He is also a worshipped to Tymora, though not a scroll thumper...

How about "the league" or "the company" (we shouldn't be easy).
Or the founders...
Or the peddlers
Or the consortium
The compatriots
The meddlers
The band
Rock and a hard place.

Re: The famous...


The Founders

Or the

The Consortium

I vote for one of these.

I'd also like to suggest that these are secretly linked to the Council or Waterdeep with provisional membership to those who have allegiances elsewhere too.

The rest of the team can vote between these two or add their own choice.  The one posted the most is it.  You can give a end date on voting and call it from the winner at the end.

Re: The famous...
Just 1 vote?



The Consortium

If we can cast a 2nd vote, The Knights Who Smile.

A 3rd would be too much (The Seven...)?
