Thread: Are the naming rules known yet? E.g. spaces, letter case, etc.

  1. #1

    Are the naming rules known yet? E.g. spaces, letter case, etc.

    With some people in alpha now, has anyone posted all the player/keep name rules yet?
    E.g. spaces allowed, choose case or automatically capitalized 1st letters, character limit...

    I won't get to play till the next KS tier down, but would like to have all my names short-listed by then so would love to know the rules for them.

    ~ Drat; this was supposed to be in the question forum - sorry.

    People have made names with spaces, numbers and other characters (apostrophes and so on).

    Spaces are really common now, most cities in Game of Thrones/Song of Fire and Ice are keeps.

    That's from Alpha FAQ, but it appears that its no longer valid (http://forums.cryptozoic.com/showthread.php?t=27721)

    Can Keep names contain spaces?

    No spaces.
    Haven't tried spaces, but i can confirm caps/numbers

    Didn't they advise people not to name their keep after a place or building but rather as their surname?

    Yeah, but given how it's actually used, place names are way more felicitous. If they said "of House _____" instead of "of _____", then surnames would be more logical.

    I think the place name thing is more fun in any case, personally.

    (I mean, assuming the @#)($*@#()$ account creation step ever stops hanging, I think that will be fun. Hypothetically.)

    Thanks everyone; I think I'll just make a list assuming of contenders assuming anything goes then, and just be sure to include a few tamer options in there.
