Open World Action Pirate RPG? Hmmm... without knowing much about the game we can't really give you a serious name. Is it set in reality or 100% fiction? Characters, ships, etc. We need way more details than just an open world action pirate rpg.

  • Unstoppable Shark Slaughter
  • Vegetarian Pirate Gladiator
  • Super Sexy Pirate
  • Jack Sparrow's Tricycle Crash
  • In search of Davy Jones' Vibrator
  • Black Beard Was Actually Black

 

These made me day. LOL!

 

As for not so serious suggestions:

 

-Pirates of the Open World: Black Beards

-Pirates of the Open Action World: Black Beards

-Pirates of the RPG: Black Beards

-The Hunt for Big Treasure

-OH SHIT! PIRATES!

-AARGHHHH!

 

:)

 

But in all seriousness, is there a story, or something other than this being an open world pirate game? Or is this just literally a game where you just do piracy? If its the latter, then:

 

-Seas of Gold

-Oceans of Opportunity

 

I can't think of anything else, but more details would be nice.

I believe the usual approach is to come up with some relevant words and make some names out of them.

 

Then you push your name list through thesaurus to make them actually worthwhile to consider for a final name.

The title of this song could be a good option. It may be that these lyrics shall help you:

Mr. Bones is fighting Black Dog
He want to split him to the chine
Blind Pew the bringer of the spot
Horse-hooves trampling his spine, yeah

We have the map to start our trip
The Squire has the ship and the sailors
Long John is the man with the grip
But no one knows he will raid us

The yell of the slain, the waves on the rocks
Captain Flint's raising hell
He's calling my name to drive me insane
But I'll never return to

Treasure Island, where the brave fell
A one-legged devil from the pit of hell
A greedy demon on his treasury
Cursed the island, oh, eternally

Long John is spreading his law
Hatching a death bringing plot
I show up in a council of war
What I heard in the barrel from this toad

The yell of the slain, the waves on the rocks
Captain Flint's raising hell
He's calling my name to drive me insane
But I'll never return to

Treasure Island, where the brave fell
A one-legged devil from the pit of hell
A greedy demon on his treasury
Cursed the island, oh, eternally

We see the land, shining sand
But it can be our grave
I jump the boat, overload
Trying to be too brave

Burning sun, find Ben Gunn
Assassins claim the ship
I cut the rope, I try to cope
To free it from Hand's grip

Bulling row, cannon law
The jolly-boats last trip
Killing tried, stockade fight
Silver's villains quit

Abandonment, to Silver's hand
A cunning pack is made
Trick or treat, make scoundrels bleed
Their dullness will be paid

I stumble to the stockade
The sweat drips from my brow
No one keeps a lookout, oh no
The rebel owns it now

Silver tries to shield me
The Black spot comes again
He throws the map onto the ground
He plays a tricky game

Pickaxe, rope and shovel
The dead-man marks the way
No chest, no gold, no silver
2 guineas is their pay

Musket cracks like thunder
The blood is running red
Of Ben Gunn kept the treasure
From beginning to end

When we put back to the sea
Silver's chains are doubly tight
Long John and his counterfeit key
Sidle away through the night

The yell of the slain, the waves on the rocks
Captain Flint's raising hell
He's calling my name to drive me insane
But I'll never return to

Treasure Island, where the brave fell
A one-legged devil from the pit of hell
A greedy demon on his treasury
Cursed the island, oh, eternally

Treasure Island, where the brave fell
A one-legged devil from the pit of hell
A greedy demon on his treasury
Cursed the island, oh, eternally

Treasure Island

Sorry it took so long to respond. So as of right now it is going to be a low poly anime like style. It is set in a fantasy world, but that does not mean we are going to have magic and dragons. It's more like a realistic world that is not Earth. It is a Planet that orbits a Gas Giant. The year is 3472, in this time of technology it is much like our 1500s.
