A game within a game

Postby aaronAGN » Wednesday October 18th, 2017 9:33am

Hey everyone.
Trying to come up with ideas for D&D/Dungeons & Dragons "knock-off" names.
Wizards & Warriors
Mazes & Monsters
Tomes & Tombs
Etc.
For the characters in my campaign to play in-game.
Can anyone come up with any more?

I seem to remember a comic of D&D characters playing "offices and taxes" or something like that. Was pretty funny, though I can't find it anywhere right now :-/

How about:

Caves & Creatures

Labyrinths & Lizards

Castles & Crusaders

Crypts & Coffins

Vaults & Vampires

Catacombs & Chimeras

... Hmmm, lots of "C" words... I suppose you could mix and match any two of them.
It's like a new pair of underwear; at first it's constrictive, but after a while it becomes a part of you. I have to go...

Many years ago, l wrote a mini game system for the heroes of our Dark Eye campain tol play in-game. Well, they purchased it, but never played it. I named it "Abenteuer ungeheuer", which would translate into English as "Adventures / Monsters" or "Monstrous Aventures", but the rhyme is lost in translation.
Have a look ;)

Just imagining right now a dwarf, a wizard, an elf and a Barbarian playing offices and taxes in the evening around the campfire. That's hilarious.

Maybe dropping the "and" aspect and focusing on just the alliteration.
Like :

The Fires of Fantasy
or
Tomes of Terror

Any other suggestions?

Ogres and oubliettes

vaults and vampires

groves and grottoes

monsters and mausoleums

Mountain(s) of Misery

Does it have to be & or of, I understand that you are trying to do a spin-off type deal but can it have other words in the title?

Like...

Terror of the Tomes sounds a little better to me.
Terror in the Tombs / Tombs of Terror (although that’s close to what you already said)
:skeleton: "Shadows and Dust" :skeleton:
