Do you have a suggestion for a topic or plot idea or something else? Post it here.

Moon (moonstonesandbooks) | 51 comments You said that you didn't want to call the mutated people 'freaks'. So, I came up with a few possible names instead:

~Evolved People
~Evolved Humans
~Evolution Rule-breakers
~Person Accelerated in the Art of Mutating (PAAMs)
~People 2.0

I'll come up with more later. These were a few of the ideas that I came up with while staring at a semi-bruised mango.

XD I'll think about it.

Rudy I personally like "Specials" myself. Or "Perfects".

But both of those benefits the mutants more.

They're not perfect. I'm not so sure about "specials". It sounds a bit Uglies-esc.

I agree. I immediately thought of the 'Uglies' series.

Now, I'm going to analyze your list, Rudy.

aberrants- It makes them sound like mistakes.
aces- doesn't fit
alphas- How do you think that the 'normals' would react to that?
angels- We are not talking religion here.
avatars- I think of Aang, not Sam Temple.
awakened- ... Zombies, anyone?
capes- ...
chosen- I think of Harry Potter.
deltas- I think of a river
deviants- It makes them sound like criminals.
elites- Once again, how do you think 'normals' would react to that?
exarchs- ...
extordinaries- Maybe, maybe
freaks- I thought that the whole point was to find another word replacing 'freaks'
gammas- The Incredible Hulk, anyone?
geeks- Computer Jack would be the only one to fit under this term.
gene-freaks- See 'freaks' for comment.
gifted- This one has potential.
godlings- See 'angels' for comment.
Homo Superior- See 'alphas' for comment.
hyper-humans- Hmm, hmm...
incredibles- Animated Disney movie, anyone?
inhumans- It makes them sound like they are cold-hearted.
inspired- I'm sorry, but it doesn't fit.
marvels- I actually like this one.
masks- ...
metas- ...
mutants- That's the term that some of the people use.
nephilim- I think of the book City of Bones, when I read that.
novas- I think of stars (astronomy, not the Hollywood type).
omegas- ...
paragons- Well, some of them aren't exactly paradigms to other people.
paranormals- It would only fit some people, not others. That's my opinion.
post-humans- ... The humans haven't become extinct.
powers- That's what they have, it's not what they are.
psis- ...
psions- ...
psychics-... No one has fit under that category so far.
psykes- ...
seraphim- See 'angels' for comment.
specials- Once again, I think of the Uglies series.
stalwarts- It doesn't quite fit.
superlatives- It makes the normals sound inferior
supernaturals- It's not such a bad term.
superiors- See 'superlatives' for comment.
talents- ...
übermenschen- WTF. It's German. I don't have anything against German, but it's random.
ultras- See 'superiors' for comment
unnaturals- I think that it's kinda insulting.
unusuals- Ditto for this.

The ones I liked:

message 12: by Rudy (new)

Rudy I took the list directly from a RPG book for superheros. I didn't assume all of the would fit.

message 13: by Moon (new)

Moon (moonstonesandbooks) | 51 comments It kinda seemed like it.

message 14: by Rudy (new)

Rudy I said so infact.

Iviana (The Sign Painter) Mʘ‿ʘP (thesignpainter) | 217 comments Mod
You said "game book," so it was a bit unclear.

Dani Henderson  (astridride) | 36 comments I like the 'gifted'
