I think I prefer Runesmith to Dwarf Fortress Creature Editor. Although, being as it's Dwarves we're making and not Nordic words, perhaps a better fitting name would be BeardSmith?

if there is going to be this much controversy over the name, maybe we should just have a poll

I was just trying to get some lulz, not stir up any controversy. Runesmith is fine by me.

:D Np, I'm not angry, just saying that if people feel this way then maybe we should. Meh, I'll wait and see if anyone else disagrees

Well, I'm not strongly focused in on the issue. But my opinion hasn't altered: I just don't see any connection between the name and the tool, nor the relevance of runes to DF or this wonderful proposed tool.

The bottom line is that it is your project and we're all going to be very thankful to see it happen and get to use it. Any minor discrepancy in taste over the name choice should not be a source of argument, and there is nothing requiring you to give heed to my objection.

A name of a project/tool can affect opinion a lot, but that impression can be molded. Personally I think Runesmith works fine:

"A tool that allows smithing (editing) of the digits and letters (runes) that control all life in DF. By smithing these runes, the metagods (players) can meddle with DF mortals to suit their games, be it recasting a soul into a new species body, blessing and cursing indiviudals or just to make predictions of when a mortal will attain the next degree of competence to guide them on how they should spend their limited time."

The sort of power you don't want actual in-game dwarves to have as they'll mess things up so badly.

I like the name Runesmith. It has some flavour to it.
