Welcome to your new home for all things Roawia! I know you will enjoy your time here, and we look forward to growing and expanding the game under this new roof! Obviously, our old name of "Lands of Classi c Castle" is both no longer applicable, and probably no longer advisable since it directs people away from the new site!
What would you like to see as the new name? Now is the time to let your voice be heard!
Thanks for your help in coming up with a new name!
PS, please vote simply by liking the ones you prefer. No need to comment on what you've voted for and why.

Lands of Roawia (LoR) Why I like it: It retains the "Lands" from our old name, keeping a similar feel to the new name, and it also emphasizes "Roawia" as part of the name, which I think we should develop as our major "brand". I also like the way that "LoR" says "Lore" and L.O.R is also easy to say.

Tales of Roawia: (ToR)
Why I like it:
I feel like our name should definitely include: "Roawia" in the name, as that is the name of the continent upon which all these stories take place. I like the "Tales" part because that is what the heart of this project is: stories. We even started out on the good old stories forum at CC. This game has been about both building wonderful things, but also about the grand tales and stories that go with them: we are creating a mythology, and I feel like our name should reflect that. Using "Lands" or "Nations" or "Guilds" doesn't really show what Roawia is all about. Its not about putting places on a map, or the lines between factions, etc. Its about the stories we are creating: the tales we tell about our beloved characters and the world they inhabit. So, I think: Tales of Roawia would be the perfect name. I feel it embodies the soul of this project.

Lands of Castle and Chaos (LCC)
Why I like it:
The abbreviation of this name, as you can see, is still LCC. All we have ever known is the 'LCC', which speaks for the rest of the community too, so this name would be able to keep that abbreviation whilst focusing on the key points. I think that 'castle' is essential for the title, as it immediately says what this roleplaying game is all about. 'Chaos' is also a very suitable word, as there always seems to be some sort of war in Roawia, with our characters being thrown into all sorts of deadly situations in the name of their faction!
I understand totally if you think that a new start needs a totally different name; if that's the case then this name isn't suitable, which is fine! If, however, you want some of the old to stay as we move into the new, then this is the name to choose!

I officially nominate:
Castle Builders of Lore (CBL)
"Castle" is our genre, and I strongly believe it must be part of our title. "Builders" refers to what we do and ties us to the LEGO brand without using the LEGO copyrighted name. And "Lore" refers to the story-telling part of our efforts. It will take some getting used to, but LCC did too for a while when you first joined, didn't it?
Great Warlord and Champion of Lenfald Lenfald Faction Overseer and King's Council
I nominate: Roawia Castle Creators (RCC) Why I like it: It maitains a certain similarity to our previous name LCC, so it might be easier to incorporate in the community. The name also has both Castle and Roawia in it. Castle, as stated by Caelan, is what we build most, so it makes sense 'castle' be a part of the title. Roawia is one of the most important parts, I guess, for all we've built in LCC is Roawia. As Lord Mercat said, it's where our stories take place, and I think it needs to be in the title. And, finally, what is LEGO about if not creating? To build even the simplest MOC we need to use our imagination and creative abilities. Creation is the soul of LEGO, and I think it should be part of our title.
