As you probably already know, “Warrior, Rogue & Mage” is a rules-light fantasy RPG created by me. The whole design process was under 24 hours, so I didn’t really bother with finding a proper name.
I am thinking about working on a revised edition which contains new player option, additional equipment and more background information on the Imperium of Vaneria. I also plan to fix some errors I noticed and add in the houserules Will mentioned in his playtest report.
But I am not really happy with the name of the game right now. WR&M doesn’t really roll of the tongue that easily and it sounds pretty boring. Since I always have trouble coming up with cool sounding names, I decided to ask my readers for help. What would you call this fine game? And while we are at it, what would you add to make it a more interesting game? Please share your thoughts in the comments below!
And I really like the three basic attributes. Great idea to use the character classes as a defining metric of the character.
"hack, stab & cast" idk, first thing I think of with those three character types…
Hack, Sneak, Cast is a clearer distinction, I think. Also I think it might emphasize that characters are expected to do all three; I know when I first read the rules I was surprised to find that it was a classless system.

Briggzee on the #rpmn IRC channel came up with "Swords, Stealth & Sorcery" which also has a nice ring to it.
Swords, Stealth, & Sorcery sounds kinda nice. Still a little long, but I like it.
I think I will keep Warrior, Rogue & Mage for now. A lot of people seem to really like the name.
