If it weren't already taken I'd suggest Mastermind, it indexes the planning without quite the same load of 'in charge'. Architect also works for me. up to a point.

I like Warden. I’m surprised that I’m the only one who likes Herald.

and...disappointed at how many can’t get past one of many uses of the term Captain.
 



As D&D so often does, this thread is reminding me of Monty Python & the Holy Grail...

...specifically:

"...and, the aptly-named 'Sir Not Appearing in this Film."

:sigh: I mean, it's been over 5 years, that's get'n close to the half-way mark for even the longer-run editions. 🤷

I like Sentinel quite a bit.

what’s your point, Tony?
 





It isn’t a name, Tony. See how it isn’t on the list?
Not name, term - edited for additional clarity.

Leader is problematic as a way of saying "Support oriented class," because it implies (no matter how clearly you may state otherwise up-front) 'leading' the other PCs, and, by extension, their players.

(Like anyone would willingly take up cat-herding that way.)

I think his point was "Those names are dumb for this particular class", without him actually stating out loud "Those names are dumb for this particular class." ;)
Not dumb, just too narrow. Might make nice sub-class names. Sentinel Warlord is more evocative than Insightful Warlord, for instance.
