Round 2

While we appreciate a few hundred suggestions we've received, keep in mind that it's impossible to process them in a meaningful way without taking a few weeks off.

In the poll I'd vote for the first one. But my idea would be Starfarer: Pilgrims of the Sky

Not "Earth", because they don't care about Earth anymore. Although... actually they don't care about pilgrimage, either. Thus, maybe:

Starfarer: Orphans of Space

or:
...of the Void
...of Emptiness

The last one being the closest to reality of that world and lives of people who live there. But it doesn't say much. That's why my favorite is Starfarer: Orphans of Space.

"No Home But the Stars" as first choice, "Pilgrims of the Void" as second. Both are great, evocative titles that sound like classic sci-fi novels.

I do agree I like these names, but I voted for Colony Ship. I think Generation Ship is the most accurate description.

Here are a few other suggestions:

Generation of the Void - adds the same evocativeness as others, but describes the game more accurately. By far, this is the strongest suggestion, the one I like the most, so as not to distill it, it's the only one from me.

All good, but I choose Colony Ship. It makes the most clear, that this is a game, while the others are good titles for novels.

My honest though:

Quote
Across the Void
 No Home But the Stars
 Born Beneath No Sun
All make me think of space-travelling/exploration game in between Faster than light and No man's sky.

and

Quote
The Colony Ship
makes me guess a city-building/management simulator

I can not  feel a deep story RPG behind all these names.


Quote
Pilgrims of the Void
Whilst still being somewhere in between the 3 first candidates, doesn't look too bad and/or too misleading.

However I think we can do better than PoV.

oh and there is a hint of how the players' characters are reffered to in MMORPGs; Think of "heroes" [of Azerot]

"Across the Void" has my vote

Colony Ship - a Post-Earth role-playing game - This sounds super technical, like I am about to read a manual or something.

'Born Beneath No Sun' reads like a good title of a sci-fi novel but it's probably a little bit too long.

'The Orion Belt' would be my favorite, but it looks too much like onion.

These are better choices than the first round. The last one would be better starting off with the word ain't

Ain't Born Beneath No Sun
