We are creating a fantasy-themed board game, and need the logo for the game. This logo will be used on the front of the game box and used to identify the game and the brand.
The board game is set in a classic medieval fantasy setting, similar to the setting of Game of Thrones. It takes place in a kingdom with knights, wizards, townsfolk, etc. and is primarily inhabited by humans. Mythical creatures such as dragons exist in this world, but are not the main focus of the story.
The storyline for the game is focused around the inner turmoil of the kingdom and different factions fighting each other for control of the throne.
The primary name for the game is "Allegiance". The title will also have a subtitle, "A Realm Divided". This would technically make the full name of the game "Allegiance: A Realm Divided". We want the main focus of the logo to be the word "Allegiance" however, as this is the name that people will generally use when referring to the game. If we release a sequel, we will keep the name Allegiance but change the subtitle (sort of like Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back and Star Wars: Return of the Jedi).
As the subtitle for the game can change, we want the logo to be designed in a way that it doesn't need to change shape to accomodate a new subtitle. A good example of this is the logo provided above for "Starcraft 2: Wings of Liberty". In that logo "Wings of Liberty" could easily be swapped out for different words and the main design of the logo would remain intact. Please make sure to include the subtitle in your submission however.
The game has a serious tone to it, so please nothing too light-hearted or cartoony.
We would prefer if the main focus of the logo was the word Allegiance in terms of how much space it takes up, rather than the picture element that may accompany it taking up a bunch of space. Large picture elements should be underneath the word Allegiance or part of it, rather than occupying a bunch of space.
