I got my copy of Names just before Dreamation 08, I found it useful but very much uneven. Some parts are more useful then others.
For example I liked how Ethiopian section shared a little bit more.. it gives me hooks for play. If you meeting with someone and they refuse to share a meal, that tells you something.
Just a list of names just isn't enough, we need clues to how things worked in that society.
Also very few of the names are defined. Most names have a meaning. Once more these are hooks and tells. I want my Games to have layers of Meaning.
Lastly what's up with it not being available via IPR? This book would sell well at Con's.
How hard would it be to start work on a revised edition?
