Mistake # – Always include a space between the words. If you don’t, it will look like someone is calling their tribe “Lizard People of The Desert.” What are they? Why would anyone want to be lizard people living in desert? Plus, if your name has more than three syllables, adding an extra space can make reading it much easier for readers.
Mistake # – Don’t use any punctuation or special characters such as ‘&’ and ‘/.’ These will cause problems when trying to share on social media sites that automatically remove these symbols from posts. And though we live in a digital age now where there are not many limitations placed on what we post online–it’s still good to follow the rules of a standard blog post formatting.
Mistake # – Don’t have your tribe name spelled out in all capital letters or with numbers: “M-O-R-C” is not how you spell Morc, and it will look like spam when sharing on social media sites that automatically remove symbols from posts–it’s still good to follow the rules of a standard blog post formatting.
Mistake # – The best way to prevent this mistake is by following his tip for Mistake # : Always include a space between the words. If you don’t, it will look like someone is calling their tribe “Lizard People of The Desert.” What are they? Why would someone want to be associated with them?
Mistake # – Similarly, don’t spell out the name of your tribe in all capital letters. This is not how you spell Morc and it will look like spam when sharing on social media sites–it’s still good to follow the rules of a standard blog post formatting.
-Avoid using symbols or numbers as part of your tribe name.
-Avoid using a name someone else is using–this would be considered copyright infringement and it’s still good to follow the rules of a standard blog post formatting.
Mistake # – Avoid names that are too similar to other groups or tribes, as this could confuse people when you try to advertise your tribe in competitions–it’s still good to follow the rules of a standard blog post formatting. For example, if your tribe name was “Dark Elves” then don’t call yourself “Forest Elves.” As these two names sound so much alike they could cause confusion for competitors on which rule set you’re following in competition settings (i.e., what combat styles can be used). This will also make it difficult for judges to keep track of the different groups and tribes in a competition.

Mistake # – Don’t name your tribe after an event that’s already happened; for example don’t call yourself “The Great Flood” if you’re just starting to make preparations now because it will seem as though you couldn’t come up with anything better and are copying what someone else has done (i.e., naming themselves The Great Flood). This also happens when people change their names from one event to another–for example calling themselve “Dragon Riders” but then changing their name to “Warriors.” It would be good practice to avoid this problem altogether by coming up with a name before the event happens.
Mistake # – Don’t use words that are difficult for judges to keep track of the different groups and tribes in a competition. For example “The Warlords” is not an appropriate tribe name because it sounds too much like “warlord.” A better idea would be to call yourself The Legion, which has been done successfully many times over. Similarly, don’t come up with something clever but mischievous such as The Dark Knights unless you want your team eliminated from competitions early on or have judges thinking you’re trying to take advantage of loopholes (e.g., hiding behind rules).
Mistake # – Do not start off naming your tribe after animals: Dogs of Doom, Ant-Eaters, Lions.
Mistake # – Don’t use words that are too long and hard to pronounce: The Warlords is not an appropriate tribe name because it sounds like warlord
Mistake # – Do not shorten your tribe’s name unnecessarily by taking out crucial letters or syllables such as “Pantheon” becoming “Pan.” Remember what you want people to say when they’re trying to identify the team in a competition with other tribes. It should be easy to say but carry weight. For example,”The Legion” would be better than “TL”. This mistake also applies for coming up with nicknames which will get shortened (or changed) all the time; instead come up with a catchy nickname that is easy to pronounce.
Mistake # – Don’t use numbers in your tribe name: “The Thirty-First” or “37”. If you need a number for ambiance, it’s better not as the main identifier of your group but rather part of its full title such as The Forty Second Legion or 37th Infantry Division. But even then, be careful about how many numerals are used because some can sound like they’re spelled wrong and don’t have any meaning–the more syllables there are in a word make them easier to say which makes them easier to remember too!
Mistake # – Avoid using negative words when naming an orc tribe? For example,”Lions of Doom.” It’s better to name your tribe after something more positive and not use a negative word like “Lions” because it’s going to make people think of the Disney movie, “The Lion King.”
Mistake # – Avoid using words that are too close in spelling and pronunciation. For example,”The Northmen”. It might be easier for some readers if you used different inflections with vowels such as ‘North-Men’ or ‘Northeast.’
Awareness of this mistake increases when there is limited space available–such as on t-shirts or tattoos where small text would need bigger lettering.
Mistake # – When naming an orc tribe avoid using long phrases: The Night Reigns Eternal. If possible, break up the name into two or three parts.
Mistake # – Avoid using words that can easily be mistaken for other words. For example, “The Usual Suspects.” The word ‘usual’ is often used as a synonym of customary and it might confuse people when you say this orc tribe specializes in hunting down custom suspects.
Mistake #- When naming an orc tribe avoid using names that are already being used by another group: Black Tide Rising. Commonly we associate the term tide with water–not first thing anyone thinks about black orcs who want to rise from their perceived oppression! Maybe try something like Red Rage Unbound instead?
Mistake #- Avoid alliteration: The Long Lost Lore Tribe. It is tempting to use an alliterative name, but it rarely sounds good or looks good on a logo. Mistake #- Avoid using surnames for the tribe’s title: Fletcher’s Family of Archers. This can lead to confusion about who belongs in the orc tribe and what they do–like if you were looking at this as a prospective member trying to figure out which family you want your son joining! No one wants that kind of headache! If anything try something like The Smith Clan, where we know everyone specializes in smithing weapons together day after day for their clan leader and chief archer Fletch. Mistake # – Don’t include too many words in the tribe’s
