Okay.. I liked Wasu'ran.. but combined with Clan... it starts to sound silly... Can we do do it? The Wasu'ran Clan can. It makes me chuckle....

What about wasur'alite? Roughly, west squad/ team.
 Or krana'wasu western settlement surrounded by water

We really need to come.up with a list so we can properly see our options

How about everyone comes up with two options then we have a vote to being it down to five definite choices

We wouldn't be the first to have a name that rhymes with "clan". Raquordaan Clan, and Muraan Clan can, too! :P

I'll just put this out there: if I had a vote that carried weight, I would vote for Wasu'ran. It feels right to me.

I think we can opt out of using "clan".  Don't we have The Black Watch?   I'll be home from the Prince George con tonight and can look into it if nobody else does first

If you go to the Clan/Squad locator there are only two chapters of the Mercs that don't have "Clan" or "Squad in their name: Skirata and Shonare Vhekadla. However, when you go to their respective Forums they are both identified as Clans in their name.
If there are naming rules I don't know of, they're probably somewhere I don't have access to :rolleyes:

I'm not a huge fan of using "aliit" in the clan name, simply because it translates directly to "clan". If we did our clan name would translate from "wasuur'aliit clan" to "western clan clan". Which sounds kinda silly to me.

As for opting out of using 'clan'. I personally like the use in a detachments name. My vote is that we use it, however if the majority votes against then I have no problem with that. I think on the forums the sections will always have the word clan, squard, or area attached to them simply to keep things organized and in proper classification so I don't think we can avoid that.

Converted bassplaya's sketch to a vector file and starting to clean it up into something that can be used.  still a lot of cleaning to do but it's good practise.   We're not locked into this by any means, I'm just looking for projects to practise.

That was kinda fun.  Still tinkering with the forms, but I now have a fully vecrtorized file that can be used for patches, coins, laser cutter, whatever.  I think. Maybe. Possibly.

I like Wasu'ran! Not sold on the bear holding ammo logo (sorry). Could we try our own rendering of a mythosaur skull but with our own spin on it? Like a combination of bear moose and whale? Maybe a bit of eagle? I can see if I can throw something together later if anyone likes the idea.

Throw it together, see what comes of it.  At this point, it's all just playing around and nothing official yet till we get more boots on the ground.

Yah I'm not completely sold on the bear either. Are there bears in the star wars universe??
I like Wasu'ran.. has a nice ring to it :)

The bear idea evolved from wanting to tie the symbol into native BC culture, which led us to thinking along the lines of Spirit Bear which led to Vojtek, the bear adopted by a Polish artillery unit in WW2 was was said to have been trained to carry artillery shells for them.   We're not set on it, but it was a fun idea.
