The Name of the New Community

Postby Malcadon » Fri Nov 12, 2010 3:30 pm

Well, the debate makes things a lot easier, as folks seem to be split between two names (although you still have the option to pick something else). To get this going, I set this poll for a fortnight (2 weeks, ending around Thanksgiving Day) to give everyone plenty of time to weigh in.

As long as the main target of the forum is Conan, there's just no other way to call it.
Cheers,

Other (specify): Altar of the Dreaming Gods
Altar with an "a". Gods are dreaming, not sleeping.

I like "An Age Undreamed of", as well, but I think the former is a better name for a forum--mainly because the forum can be an "altar" more easily than it can be an "age".

Sorry about that. I submitted too soon - even if I can right the mistake, I can only alter the text on the post, not the poll. I meant to say: Altar of the Dreaming Gods. Sorry folks! :P

By the way, its from the title of a Bal-Sagoth song, At the Altar of the Dreaming Gods. Most of their song are really cool, and basted on the works of REH and HPL. You can find it on YouTube.

I vote for

HALL OF SWORDS

But I will be happy with any of the 2 [ corrected ] titles in the poll list.

I just extended the voting to a group of S&S fans at the Howard and Hyboria sub-group at OD&D Discussion to those how are interested in joining. I will add their votes to ours when the polling ends.

I go to a number old-school D&D communities and these guys are the nicest grognards around (if you know grognards, that is saying a lot), and they might have a lot to add to our new community.

Don't forget that the poll is a bit skewed. I voted "Other" since dreaming gods were sleeping in the poll.

That narrows the lead a bit on Age, but, clearly, Age is the most preferred.

Damn, I cant believe I forgot!

This poll is so passed finished, and its time to get the ball going!

I changed Sups vote (other -> AotDG). Here are the results:
  • 8 for An Age Undreamed of
  • 5 for Alter of the Dreaming Gods
  • 2 for Other results
"An Age Undreamed of" is the winner! W00T!!!

I'm going to get in contact with Thulsa to get things moving.

Sorry for the delay, folks!

The Turanian woman should follow that of the Khitai women when naming the newborn--they just pull out the silver ware drawer and let the utensils fall on the ground. Whatever sound is made is the name of the newborn. Ching Chan Poak.

Can we have a progress report on the new
'Conan rpg community forum'
please ? :)

It's been over 2 months since it was named.

[ and BTW, the Turanian women shove 2 fingers at any hog who disturbs their sacred birthing rituals...?? LOL ]

Sorry for the delay, but its up! It has a "community" theme, with each sub-forums named like a district of a large city - the sort, you'll find a sword & sorcery novel. I forgo the swords & planets/sanddles themes to make it a dedicated Conan gaming group, with plenty of side-discussion. I hope you guys enjoy it?
