Do you think the stats, specifically Strength, Dexterity, Intelligence and Charisma, need to be renamed?

It would only be a cosmetic change, but the names seem somewhat fantasy like, as well as counter intuitive to certain aspects of the game. Like needing Dexterity to shoot a gun. Perhaps it could be changed to Marksmanship? Or some other idea?

What do you the players think? And what would you suggest we change them to?

I am liking that so far.

Any other suggestions?

Hmm... I think the current stats are fine, Though Im not in any way against changing those into something less fanatsy-rpg-like :D

Dex to Marksmanship; could work, but then again we would also need "Marksmanship" for hitting in melee and crafting, which would seem a bit weird? So I'd prefer dexterity (for now) and to add some other options; how about Agility or Accuracy?

Str to Muscle; Nothing wrong with muscle :D I like that. I suppose its kinda the same thing as strength; makes you tougher and stronger!

Int for Psionic; Love it!
(BUT; we also need int for crafting and... err... for prevention against being pickpocketed :lol: So I think that some other "stats" could work as well: Like Smarts/Wits or even Mental(-power?)

Charisma; I think this is pretty much associated with pets at the moment. So how about Influence or Authority?

Is charisma just for pets? Or does it effect other things (been out the loop for ages and just lurk these fine fora). If its just pets id suggest Animal Taming.

Accuracy is better :)

Charisma is mostly for pets but it does have a mild effect on buying and selling to vendors.
