I don't want to tell anything about the game's content except that it is an action rpg in a fantasy setting. I want to know which ones "sticks" best on it's own (if any). Here are my ideas, or if you think of a different combination with these word's or a synonym, i'm very open for suggestions!

Blade's Nemesis
Howl Of The Blade
Howl Of Grace
Ghosts Of Grace
Blade's Howl
Shadows Of Grace (but there is a band with this name that is famous enough to be a problem)
Shadows Of Redemption

I believe from a purely rhetorical point the most memorable would be "Ghosts of Grace" just because both words start with a G and thus create an alliteration.

Without story context I just like the alliteration of Ghosts of Grace. It rolls off the tongue well.
And though the word Blade is cool I feel like there's so many games with that word that it feels to generic.

"Shadows of Redemption", quite good for an rpg is at the level of "The Legend of Legacy", but from the names it seems somewhat darker. Ghosts of grace is just as good

@Pan Dimensional Being @ScorchedGround Thanks for the feedback. I also like that one and it makes sense in the story, but only thing i'm afraid of is if "Ghosts" might make people think it's a horror game or have horror elements, which isn't really the case. Think this might be an issue?

Blade's Nemesis, I change that vote because you want to be brand as the action game. If you are trying to hide the meaning behind the title, just let you know not many players will role-play as the cryptographer.
The catchy effect only works with a slogan.

In addition to how it sounds, try Googling these and see what you get. If one of these names is too similar to existing game names and you get a ton of results about one particular game, it means your game is going to get drowned out by that one, so avoid it

They are super generic names that tell nothing about the game

If you don't want to give context, I don't understand how we are supposed to help.
We can say which name "sound better" (which I did, by voting), but what if the best option isn't in these 6 choices?

Ghosts can be actual ghost, or bad though, or something related to memories, or anything lost
Is grace the pardon, the respite, elegence ?

Why does nobody want to give one piece of their synopsis even when asking for help ?
Or the main character quest, the main ideas of the game, the theme you want to put forward...

I feel like Ghosts can also be thriller as opposed to just horror and isn't particularly scary. But yeah that doesn't scream "action".
How about "The Blade's Howl" instead of "Howl of the Blade" so it flows better?

Hi
Thanks for your review.
I was checking the trailer for details and as the woman shut the door at the exact moment the song I was hearing said "you slim the door" and I couldn't resist to add it there. :D And I used this idea one more time on another scene.
Just doing some tileset tinkering again...
