We know that Gloomhaven is a pretty easy game to play, as long as at least one of the players really, really knows all the little kinks in the rules and can apply them efficiently. I suggest we honor these people with the title of Loremaster.

We won't need any tests to determine who is a Loremaster. When we are playing the game with one, we'll know.

I prefer the more gender neutral "Lorepersonage". Or if playing with other species "Loreprimebeing".

Can we get t-shirts or baseball caps or something? I like to feel special.

I think you have to grow your hair really long and wear robes to the gaming sessions. I mean, that's what I do.

Technically master/mistress for male/female, but I'd say that master has become a more gender-neutral description.

An alternative name for that player might be 'The Henry'.

Oh wow.. I'm definitely aiming at Loreprimebeing now. I guess that makes me a Loreprimebeing trainee for now.

Trainee is a bit demeaning.

I prefer ExecustiveLorePrimeBeingAssistant Secondus.

Which is much easier to remember and helps pad your business card or resume.

Ditto. I loved the idea of a future LARP-as-eSport!
