My current work-in-progress is a magic themed deduction game where the players are apprentice mages trying to figure out their individual affinity for gathering mana, converting that mana to what they need and then spending it to learn and ready spells which allow them to mess with the other players and give points at the end of the game (woot run-on sentence).

The game is played over 12 rounds with 3 steps in each round all played simultaneously by the players and will likely support 2-5 players. There are 6 basic mana types which are also what the players will be using to deduce their affinity, a "philosopher's stone" which is a puzzle the players use to convert their mana and then spell cards that are purchased by the players which have varying costs using both the 6 basic mana types as well as 6 advanced types that can only be acquired via conversion.

----------

I'm not particularly good with naming things, so I'm offering some geekgold for some help. This evening I'll choose my favorite 5 suggestions, who will immediately receive 5gg and post a poll for voting toward the best one, whom will receive an additional 25gg. Depending on the number of submissions I may also give a little bit to everyone else as well, we'll see.

So what do you think? Any cool / fun names come to mind? meeple

----------

Update 1: Nominations end 6pm Eastern time.

----------

Update 2: Nominations closed. Voting is now open. Poll:

----------

Update 3: New text based poll. Vote and be rewarded 1gg! Poll:

----------

Update 4: Voting done. Arcanum wins it!

Elemental Affinity or Elemental Quest (Elemental (my dear Watson) for the deduction aspect, and at the same time suggesting a branch of magic.)
