    I posted something in this thread as an official declaration. There is a fairly glaring error in it, which really should have been spotted.
    I'll throw out some thoughts:

    The contradiction between this:

    and this:

    ?

    And my other guess would be

    Which somewhat contradicts the idea that, in a Yin-Yang cosmology, there should be no "main" plane.

    Just my out-there guesses, though.

    There's no contradiction. The Hindu Trimurti is considered equal in the Hindu religion. The branch of the Hindu religion called Sivaism believes Siva to be the greatest of the three gods. There could have been latitude in terms of worship, clergy, religion all based on the same three gods.

    As for your other guess, I put "main" in quotes for that reason.

    In the interests of seeing a winner, I'll drop another clue:

    It's as easy as 1, 2, 3. Wait a minute... does that clue add up?

    Well, I've trawled since page twenty, and if it's anywhere before that whole "city-states" argument I can't find it. There was something about two polls left/three polls left, but I think you shot that down already.

    I also mostly just read your posts, as from what you said I've inferred that you mean something in one of your posts conflicts with something in another of your posts.

    You actually posted them 5 hours 24 minutes later. This fits with the counting clue but is very minor. Yet, that also fits with your clues.

    This might also fit with the counting clue. The remaining percentage would have been divided among 5 races as the sixth (human) was alreadyu accounted for.

    Also, I'd been under the impression that that was the vote for antagonist reffered more to the primary threat rather than any generaly looked down upon force.

    I have been thinking. Because use of magic is main evil in this setting. Should it mean that magic is gained by a)Pact's with daemon's, devil or any other non-good-magic-power or b) by using the human(oid's) bodies as power something like next:
    What you need list look's like next:
    X amount of human(oids) to sarcificed to getting enuff of (insert here name) force.

    And a god with Schizophrenia would be awesome.

    As the primary antagonist, magic is known and feared by the majority. As such, those who actually want to control it for themselves are few and far between, and those who do it through study are rarer still. Since sorcery and wizardry are so distinct, aspiring wizards cannot learn from the more prevalent sorcerers.

    Is that fair, or do you still have concerns?

    Incorrect. There is a basic error within one of my posts. It is not a grammatical or spelling error. It is between page 26 and this page.

    We're looking for something less minor.

    Yes, but in reality it was sarcasm.

    That said, Sereg is definetely the closest so far. He's not far off, folks. Better hurry!

    It's actually the primary antagonist, as Owrtho said, meaning that while the creatures who control magic aren't evil, per se, they rarely have the best interests of mortals at heart.

    What we're looking into right now is pact, bloodline and ritual being different avenues for power, but I really don't want to say any more on that because it will be integral to setting flavor, and I expect a lot of you still want to be surprised.

    Sadly no. Don't worry about it, Sereg. You're still the closest one so far.

    Also: folks, we need more names! Right now we have only six!

    Yes, that includes writeups.
    Could it perhaps be that you actually didn't do any writeups today as we're merely submitting suggestions to you?

    EDIT:(By the way I'm sorry. I couldn't think of a name worthy of something this awesome.)

    If you can send more than one name, then I also may be able to give some more suggestions.

    By the way, will you be able to vote for your own suggestion(s)?

    One name per user limit; sorry Xavius.

    You will be allowed to vote for your own entry, however you may not discolse which entry is yours until the next poll has closed.

    insecure: there is only one poll left.

    Also: when I said "messages" I was referring to forum posts.

    I left quite a few clues over the past two pages. They should be enough to help you find it.

    There are only 5 non-human races that we voted for, but implies that there is, in fact, a sixth, which would required there to be a race we didn't vote on.

    and a vote for Sands of Mystique.
