Title: Title: Tales of the Old World

This might seem pedantic, but is there a better title for that? Tales of the Old World doesn't actually include all Warhammer Fantasy topics.

Um... why not? The Old World is the defining part of the Warhammer World, and most of the stories will be set there. Also, I personally doubt anyone would think the only stories allowed are Old World... I mean, thats like assuming Robin Cakes should have Robins in, or Welsh Dragon sausages should have Dragons in... (btw, both of these really happened. Damn you food standards agency!)

Are you complaining that there are topics not about the Old World there , or do you mean there are topics about the Old World in other places as well.
If its the former, Avaris has already answered that. If its the latter, then the clue is in the title. Tales of the Old World. Only the stories are classified as 'tales', so only stories go there.
Come to think of it, you probably meant the first one I stated, so, if so, ignore this.

I know, but I just meant that the Old World is only a small part of the Warhammer World. We have Ulthuan, the New World, the eastern regions of Cathay, and my personal favourite, the Isles of Elithis. :D Again, it was just a pedantic suggestion. Just going with the flow, here. ;)

Well, the site is called Old World Chronicles, and 'Tales of the World' or 'Tales of the Warhammer World' doesn't have the same ring to it. If you have a better suggestion, feel free to post it, and we'll happily take it into account.

The RPG forum was tricky, and we only had tales of the old world as an option. Like wizwum said, we would be more than happy to replace it with a better suggestion, and while it works quite well, it's not perfect...

Erm, gladius? The RPG forum is called Tales of Greatness. Tales of the Old World is the name of the normal Fantasy Fluff forum.

Crap. Foot. It. Damn.
I like tales of the old world...I just got confused...

I was thinking the same as you Gladius, so dont worry too much about it :D

On the contrary, if you are thinking the same as the Hivemind, you should be VERY worried :P
Seriously though, I'm happy with the current title. As mentioned, if you propose a better one (And NO, Tales of the Old World, Ulthuan, the New World, the eastern regions of Cathay, and the Isles of Elithis does NOT count ;)), we're happy to hear it.

A History of the Realms (thereby factoring in non-physical elements)
Legends, Myths and Facts
Insert some 'Latin' terms used in the Warhammer World here.
The Imperial Archives (insert library name somwhere)
The Altdorf Archives
I also think that something could be done to improve the 40K title.
[Title containing 'Astronomican' in it.]
Divinations of the Astronomican
The Imperial Archives (need to distinguish from the other thing)
The Black Library (copyright?)
