    Guild name change

    Post by plum on January 16th 2010, 8:51 pm

    My apologies for this post bad timing and the usual bad English. Also, for my recent absence from the forums.

    Most of you probably don't know, but there's an older (and more organized Laughing) French guild named Origin. We didn't know about them back when we created this, our Origin - in fact, only about a month after the last wipe did I learn about them through an in-game conversation with their leader. They'd decided to temporary go by the name "Esquisse" until they could retake their original name. After explaining it had been just an unlucky coincidence that we'd also chosen this name, he asked what I honestly couldn't deny them - that, in the case of another wipe, we let them have their original name.

    'Awww, sweet... But, hey! What about us?!'

    We'll get a new name, at least until an English/International server is made available to us (Tiva only knows when that might be, but heh).

    So, if whoever is bothering to read this post isn't too shocked/angry/unfazed by this bit of news, I'd like to ask you guys to please come forward with your suggestions for our new name. A poll will then be added if necessary.

    My personal suggestions are: Marrow or Stem, and to keep the same guild logo.

    Thank you for understanding.

    EDIT: Poll reset due to technical issues and the usual plum dumbness.

    I vote for something that doesn't make me wanna barf like the ones suggested so far Razz

    Here's my list of non-fail names: Regalia, DarkSigil, FallenNight, CavalloneFamily, Dragoon, LostMemory, Fatality, Reverse, Masters, Legion, Checkmate, GameOver

    That's about it for now, I may add more later as I think of them. My favorite from the list is "DarkSigil"

    Well what about a cool Latin Name for the guild, because Latin is the base for most of the lenguages that are spoken today.

    My sugestions.

    Atrum Fulsi: Dark Shines
    Micans Lumen Divinus: Divine Ray of Light
    Legio Cruor: Legion of Blood

    Looks like we have it narrowed down Razz Yggdrasil and Edge are cool.
    The Latin idea sounds nice, but it might throw of some people regarding the fact that this is a primarily English-speaking guild (Honestly I wouldn't doubt there being plenty of people mistaking it as a non-English guild if we use a Latin name)

    ya i agree with runic, cause we are an internaconal guild the most we could put one name in latin.

    i like "lostmemory" and "reverse".


    and ya the actual shield is good...

    I was actually actually hoping for Mork, I'm quite fond of the layout there.

    The problem with going Mork is that we lose the huge pool of potential recruits on Sev. Anyone joining later would have to make a new char which would put a lot of people off.

    That said, I originally proposed Mork as the English island... but got voted down so I know how you feel Razz

    Heh, Migraine sounds pretty good about now.

    How about Renaissance, Malevolence, Whimsy, Mercury Rising, Ilk, or Pax?

    I like the latin ideas kicking around. I'm biased because I studied latin for several years, but it's cool all the same for the dead language connection. I especially like any permutation involving "world". Call me crazy, I just like it. I do however have another suggestion to add confusion to the mix. The time honored, the legendary;
