Renaming/retheming The Fractured Lands as Meeplesburg


So I had an idea yesterday to change the game I have been designing for about 2 years from The Fractured Lands to Meeplesburg.

I would describe the game play as light Euro, so I was thinking a retheming was in order to match.

So as a description, I am going from this:

In The Fractured Lands, a game for 3-4 players, you and your opponents each play a commissioner belonging to one of five races. You will be rebuilding the great city of Unity and vie for control and influence. As a commissioner you will direct workers from five different races: Elves, Dwarves, Gnomes, Minotaurs and Trolls. You'll gain prestige by constructing buildings, building walls and bridges, and erecting monuments in this epic building project. Can you reunite The Fractured Lands and rebuild the mighty city of Unity?

To this:

In Meeplesburg, a game for 3-4 players, you and your opponents are building the great medieval city of Meeplesburg, vying for control and influence. You will direct worker meeples of five different colors: black, orange, blue, red and yellow, plus the white mason meeples. You'll gain prestige by constructing buildings, building walls and bridges, and erecting monuments in this epic building project. Will you be remembered as the greatest builder of Meeplesburg?

Here is the definition of a Euro according to BGG:
