Maybe it's just me, but I find it somewhat unnecessarily confusing that all the characters have two names, e.g. Boar / Blacksmith; and Bear / Warrior.

When playing the game, how do you find yourself referring to them?
a) Boar, Bear, Fox, Wolf, Goat, and Lynx?
b) Blacksmith, Warrior, Bard, Navigator, Merchant, and Scout?
c) both?

Hi Ender,
When I am playing it depends, for people discovering the game I am refering to the animal names.
Once they get used to itwe are generally talking about the occupation, no longer the animal name :-)

Using the animals name is more visual. Using the occupation is more thematic :)

I sometimes refer to them as their icon.

Anvils, Swords, Harps, Bows, Ships, Bags

That's how we refer to them - especially when scoring as that is how the score card visually identifies them. So 'what's your score for the anvils?'
