Naming after fictional horses?
« on: September 12, 2014, 07:51:37 pm »
I know naming foals after RL champions isn't allowed (ie Ruffian, Round Table, Equipoise) but what about fictional horses? I just renamed a foal to Black Minx (Black Stallion series) then realized I should probably ask if this is okay. If not, I'll just find a new name!

I don't mind. We've already got some famous fictional horses (the Townsend ones, etc). The real life ones are the potentially confusing ones (do you mean Zenyatta the amazing RL racehorse, or Zenyatta the unplaced 5yo FF horse?), hence that rule. The entire game is fiction, really, so I don't mind if people steal from other fiction.

Thanks Shanthi! I knew about all the Townsend's and of course The Black, but I just wanted to make sure.
