We need a group motto and banner. Any suggestions?

I already gave you ideas for the banner (basically like the Mythron banner in layout but Average Gnomes colors (font and colors from the group pic) and with a picture of a gnome on the left side, maybe).

The Motta should be something like this "We are the elite, we are the victorious." Sounds a "bit" cocky but it works:)

The motto should be in Greek or Latin to make us sound refined.

"Et nos mortales sumus in indusia". We are men in underwear.

Or, "Et nos mortales sumus in Laetitia." We are men in swimsuits.

For some reason, "We are men in RED underwear" translates differently. =P

"Homines sumus rubro ubi."

That's fantastic, but not much of a motto. We need to use that somewhere, though.

David just said (above) roughly what they should mean. It's just different translations, I was curious if anyone (Ian) knows which is more accurate.

I don't think it matters how accurate it is. It matters how it comes out on google translate, because that's where everyone will be checking. :P

Why don't we make it serious? We are already known as a bunch of jokers...we need to make it clear that we are also serious and organized.
Thoughts on a serious, heroic motto?

I think Brick has a point. Is there a way we could make a motto that is funny but still shows that we're not just about silliness?

Powerful warriors indeed. Maybe lock the topic and post this as our official motto so everyone knows. Only if we are doing this one for sure.
