    Subject line says it all....The current Chapter of the Warriors of Destiny event cycle needs a name.

    Look here:

    http://www.uoguide.com/Warriors_of_Destiny

    for the names of the previous Chapters.

    I figure one of two things will happen with this thread....Either the manufacturer (Draconi, for example, hint hint!!) will show up with a title. That's how the most recent chapter got its name. Because they are actually writing at least the outline of the story (even as we provide the specifics), their word should be taken as definitive. Or, they'll decide to stay out of it, and then we'll title it ourselves. I guess there's a third possibility, which is that the way things will unfold in this Chapter isn't known yet, and a title will suggest itself within a week or two.

    My personal suggestion will be "Blood Feud," because based on what we know so far the next phase will be dominated by the way our characters are caught in the middle of what appears to be a dragon blood feud.

    We could also have a title that somehow refers to the fact that we still don't know if Casca is good, or evil, or something else yet. His behavior can be read either way. One example would be "Penumbras," because the term "penumbra" refers to an unclear space between light and shadow. It's also a legal term, thus making reference to the fact that Casca's a lawyer by trade.

    Galen, Penumbra is not a legal term. Its most noticeable usage in legal terminology was a very contested supreme court decision based on everything but the law and precedent. Don't say it has legal meanings when most lawyers and paralegals will tell you it not only doesn't but it's a scientific term for shadow.

    Penumbra is also a character in Ultma 6, so it might be best to save the name just in case she shows up. :p

    The only time I've ever personally seen this word actually used was in a legal context.

    Specifically, if memory serves, Roe v. Wade, wherein the decision was based in large part on "penumbras" (or implications, suggestions, "shadows") of a right to privacy in the Constitution, though there is no such explicit right there.

    Also, if you actually read my post, you'll see that I already referred to the term's actual definition.

    *sighs*

    So, any title suggestions? You know, the actual topic of the post?

    Yeah, definitely best to save it then.
