So what name do we want for our guild?
Think we established that we are rolling Empire. So what name would be fitting? A name similar to TDE? A "cool" name? Or a ridicoulus funny name?
Come with you best suggestions and we make an vote a few days before launce.

Some general thoughts from me.

I want a guild name that

A) doesn't sound like it was taken from somewhere else (no Knights of the Round Table, Skywalker Family Legacy, Reservoir Dogs etc)
B) doesn't sound to bland (no Guardians of the Dark Force, Order of Prophecy, Knights of the Empire etc)
C) is not to complicated but still interesting (no Eternal Order of Incessant Verisimilitude, The Congregation of Dark Force Scions etc)
D) isn't just some random sillyness (no Knights of the Bong, Poopyheads, Damn Noobs Killed my Companion etc)
E) avoids using in game terminology (no The Cooldowns, All for the XP, Victims of the Lag etc)

I think short but powerful/cool is great, one word if possible. If we can actually find a way of talking about what kind of people we are that's a bonus. The Double Edge was picked because we were two people who formed it (the original one on Argent Dawn) with one mage and one warrior, as an added bonus it also has another meaning on its own plus it doesn't sound like every other guild out there.

I don't think we need (and preferrably probably should avoid) picking a name that is directly tied to the lore, better to pick something "neutral."

Well that was a lot of ideas for names to avoid ...

Anyone agree or disagree.

Oh and we also need to pick a Guild Master!

Actual name ideas:

The Hive (connotation to group mentality and somewhat dark in tone)

Gambit (like the way the word sounds and also the meaning of "taking a risk to try for an advantage" although we have already had a guild with this name)

Spinward Reavers (spinward being a term for direction in space (meaning towards the galactic spin) so has a nice science fiction feel, Reavers as in meaning some kind of pirates but that word can be exchanged for something else, I just put it in for now (The Spinward Hive or Spinward Gambit would work as well Smile )

i like the idea of some sci-fi name with some real life meaning. Some ideas:

Event Horizon : in general relativity, an event horizon is a boundary in spacetime beyond which events cannot affect an outside observer. In layman's terms it is defined as "the point of no return" i.e. the point at which the gravitational pull becomes so great as to make escape impossible. Could mean the guild is such a tightknit group you cant escabe after you joined.

Redshift : Redshift happens when light seen coming from an object is proportionally increased in wavelength, or shifted to the red end of the spectrum. Can also mean we are inclined to the Empire ie. empire colors are red.

A name that gives idea to our old name:

Dual Phase Sabres ...or Dual Phase Blades...Or Dual Phase Blasters : Dual Phase being the sci-fi version of double Edge
or Dual Phase Bastards as poe just suggested on vent

Apparantly we only needed 4 people to form a guild pre-launch BUT the time to do it ran out yesterday Sad We just have to pick a good server and hope it doesn't fill up before everyone gets in. The amount of head start days you get is based on how early you registered your pre-order, I registered the 1st of August, how about you guys?
