    Save typewriter. Wait, is RE4 considered an RPG?

    More seriously, Save 'item' or Checkpoint for general purposes.

    Hmm depends on the game? *clicks on event* these are save points, they are scattered around the world, use them efficiently to avoid data loss. "Wow they really do be making a save point a cat"

    I've used a variety of things (and people) as save points, only in my first game was it a crystal. Try and make it tie in with some aspect of your game and it could become a way of adding lore, for example.

    For me, and at the moment, crystals do the job well

    @richter_h But if I just call it a crystal, you can't tell that it serves the purpose of saving the game. A crystal could as well be a valuable item for sales purposes.

    @Kes This is a good idea. What item could you also think of as a save item and what would you call it? Maybe that will give me some more aspects to think of.

    @Knighteriius I didn't make that one clear enough. It's not a crystal standing around, but a kind of item that you carry around with you in your inventory.

    Well, the crystals I mentioned are called "Save Crystal" or in lore-friendly term, "Journeyman's Crystal". If you know Suikoden, you might know what I meant.

    I'm a bit late to the reply on this one but couldn't you call it something like a time crystal that the player holds and it's a special device that records the characters' journey. Perhaps it's a rare stone given down as an heirloom?

    @Knighteriius I like the idea. It needs a bit of ingame explaination though, but with a small description added, this would make a proper save item.
