Just curious as to what people who've backed the Kickstarter campaign are choosing to put in here: real name? Forum name? Something else entirely...?

Okay, I admit it's a bit of a lame question, but I'm in the grip of indecision!

Personally, I'm putting my real name in simply for the coolness factor of actually having your name in credits.

If you are having trouble deciding, you can always go for the real name along with whatever nickname in quotation marks. For example:

John "The Hammer" Doe

That way you can have your cake and eat it too.

P.S. I tested adding quotes just to make sure it is in fact possible, and it is.

I always use my real name for credits listing and an alias for in-game mention.

Which reminds me, I'm not sure what to use for my WoOS bonus credits listing.

Well, my wife and I will both be playing, and I plan for my kids to play when they're old enough, so it's our family name in the credits. Still not sure if I want to put clan or family after it, though. smile

I'd wondered about the idea of using the nickname-in-quotes means as I'd also like my real name but it'd be nice to be identified by my forum name too. It seems that the general consensus so far is to use real names, which is probably the sensible approach! Even though being sensible is a concept I often struggle with.

I just use my forum/Kickstarter name. Sure, no one else is going to have any idea who this 'Helena' person is. But I will. smile

I seem to have completely missed whatever the Weresheep thing was about... smirk

In one of the kickstarter videos a sheep was attacked (with a fireball IIRC), and since the death animations were not done at the time, it kind of looked like it just exploded. In the kickstarter comments discussing additions or stretch goals, someone suggested sheep armour, after which someone posted a link to a screenshot from a low budget horror comedy called Black Sheep, which got a bunch of similar images linked to (most from that film, weresheep not being a large sub-genre), and weresheep became a running theme.

Thanks for the explanation! I'm suspecting one of those "you had to be there" moments, at a time when I was rather absent...
