Since Mischief and Thornblade are launching concurrently would it be possible for both servers to use the same list of "taken" character names? That way when the servers are inevitably merged no one will lose their character name. This would have the disadvantage of less names being available on each server day 1, but it will eventually pay off because you can be assured to keep your name post-merger. I think it will also make people feel better about playing on Thornblade vs. Mischief, without fear of losing your name eventually, and could contribute to a more even population split. Thoughts?
