The following is the old post:
I'm currently developing a web-based RPG and I need help deciding a name. Any real suggestion is appreciated.
I'm leaning mostly toward a name in the format of "_____ Online." That has always just sounded like a good MMORPG name format to me. Example: Anarchy Online
Here are some of the key features that may help inspire a name idea:
- catching monsters which you can train and have them "boost" you in battle in various ways. For example, one monster will attack the enemy in the opening round of the battle with an ability called First Strike. Other monsters might shield you from attacks.. etc. I am considering having mostly dragons be the types of monsters caught, so the title could very well have something to do with dragons. Monsters will be tradable and sellable to other players, so the player economy will be unique in this game as well.
- character customization will be a key feature. Users have a generated avatar which assembles head, body, armor, helmet, and up to two weapons.
- quests - each quest will have a (big or small) story to it. Kind of like Runescape- you don't just "go kill a vampire" in Runescape, there's a big story behind it and you have to get the stake and garlic before you can fight the vampire boss.
Oh yeah, screenshots... graphics are obviously not finalized. You'll see many ten-second sketches and Final Fantasy placeholders below.

So, any ideas? This post was longer (eek), so I cut out a few things.
