Also, be sure to keep in mind the awesomeness of the name Impale!

It's news from the tip!

Ok, I can't get the poll to work. Is it already over?
But for what it's worth, I would have voted The Rune Quester.

Yes, it's over. I wanted it concluded quickly so I could announce next steps over the weekend.

I will take your vote into account, though.

I think this poll should have been taken under the Alternative Vote system.

As someone who was once Returning Officer for the largest AV/STV-based election in mainland Britain at the time, I have to say FPTP is ideal here.

Come on people - a show of support, please!

It's your game we're trying to create a fan-zine for!
Well, I have voted. But I would point out that lack of an opinion on a preferred name does not equate to lack of interest in (and support for) the concept.
True. Although I'd have thought with the number of views there would've been more votes.

That's not the number of unique visitors, it's total page loads.

I think 'Beyond the Impale' would work for a column that deals with converting settings and other such things from other game systems and fiction. I have a couple of ideas already...

Nah "Runelord" of "Runelords" for nostalgia

I suppose there's no prohibition on having "rune" in the title, even though the game isn't going to be called RuneQuest any more.

Don't you want to thumb your nose at the powers that be a little bit?

No need for a new poll - we were going to go with Impale! anyway with The Rune Quester in the subtitle. The subtitle can be changed.

Oh, I thought it was just going to be The Rune Quester. Cool. Impale! would have been my second choice, after Rune Lord. But that's only because Critical Mess wasn't in the list.

We have recieved an email from Ultor regarding introduction. So I assume so yes.
