COMPETETION ENDS 20th of February. Only the best man (or woman?) wins.

Levels names:
1. By Demons be driven
2. Land Defiled
3. Under the burning sky
4. Twilight of the Gods
5. Twisting Nether
6. Credits
Don't copy these names!

So I'm handing out a big prize: 1000 yes, you read correctly, 1000XP points to anyone who wins this competition! Of course it demands that I'll find a good name for series. He will also have a free passage to beta of the level series when they are in the right version. However, giving a name to a level series you have no idea about would be like searching a needle in a haystack. So here's lore: (NOTE: If you have ever read any of WoW lore you MIGHT find this familiar)
''It's a peacefull day at craftworld. Your sackboy has gone to the Sky City, for just a holiday. When mostly unexpected, something terrifying happens. Skies turn red and it starts raining fire. A great, meteor looking thing crashes into the Sky City and a horrifying, six legs beast, with wings and destructive look in his eye raises from the fire. Of course it's nothing when counting what's going to happen. Fire rains from skies and demonic figures are coming closer from the fires. After surviving this horrible experience, sackboy finds himself from ruins of Sky City, which has crashed on a land. Looking around, he sees nothing but destruction. Black sands, volcanos erupting demonic fire and demons marching around. Then he meets an oracle, and begins to complete the task oracle gave to him, knowing that only the faith of entire universe was depending on him.''
So that's little something for you. There are going to be cutscenes, and different characters, when it comes to the story. It also contains 6 levels, or actually 7 if trailer I'm going to make counts as one. One of the levels is completely cutscene with credits and others are mainly just gameplay. It's going to involve many kinds of gameplays, from running away from demons in a shattering paradise of Sky City to controlling a tank in a desert fortress of Fort of Creators and deep jungles to fight demons with machine guns in Vietnam style enviroment. Story even takes you out of Craftworld, into a realm beyond. Main bad guy, some MAY guess is still secret, but it might tell you something that it's same that WoW lores main bad guy. His demonic armies of Burning Legion are coming to corrupt craftworld in order to be strong enough to conguer the whole universe.
So now when you know little something from what it's about, I'll tell you rules
1. No offensive names
2. No copied names
3. Max three entries. Otherwise your entries do not count.
4. It has 5 main levels, taking places at different corners of... err... existance? So no names like: War of LBP.
5. Be creative, but also understand, that it's 1000 XP I'm giving to a winner. No second place prizes.
So tell me your idea! I really need one :(
-----SUGGESTION: go to WoWpedia and search ''Burning Legion''. It should explain a lot more (and a lot clearer) about what I'm chasing. Good name suggestions so far.
Hints:
1. The story isn't completely built around any place. Using this as an advantage is quite easy.
2. Please, try reading whole text above. It should be very, very rewarding.
3. Go to WoWwiki/WoWpedia. Here are few things you should try searching for:
-Burning Legion
-Kil'Jaden
-Archimonde
-Sargeras
-Third war
4. Think big. Names like: Hero of universe/cosmos are not very creative.
5. Epic names are better. So far the best name I've seen isn't very ''epic''.
6. Eyes on the price. Do your best and remember: you can post three names! Difference between them is always good.
Seriously! Read the whole text. It'll be an advantage!

"Paradise Lost"

In reference to this. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paradise_Lost) I see similarities with your story and it.

Maybe a little too obvious though? I dunno...

Let's try this with "Of Grand Nihil", "Twilight Dawn" and "Being". I hope these names are not too silly, and related to what you want to create as a whole.

The easiest way to create a feeling of "wow this is epic" is with single-word titles.

Try "Decimation" with the sequels being listed as II - VI

Another idea, from the plot, sprouts the word "Tainted."

A possible third option could be "Blazing Tempest."

Of course it's nothing when counting what's going to happen. Fire rains from skies...

After reading this first part it sounded an awful lot like "V" the TV show.

So, since I like short titles I'd have to go with:

- "V"
- "The Visitor"
- "The Visitors"

Depending on how many demons there are. :)

Not really. Not at all, actually. Deathwing is the villain of Cataclysm, if I remember correctly. This is based on WoW lore, where the actual main bad guy is Sargeras, the great enemy of all life (OK his title is rediculous).

Divine Retribution
Lost Cause
Deluge

"Divine retribution" and "deluge" mean the same thing: the destruction of a civilization by a deity. Lost Cause is more of a depressing and dark title (I came up with it mainly because the guy is lonely since everybody died).

If you want some lawl factor, try this:

2012

Flames Of The Fallen

Based on the idea that demons are generally referred to as fallen angels, who rebel against Gods, and angels are related to Gods, so there's a few ties there, with the whole God named level and the Oracle. These demons are coming from the fire falling from the sky, for a bit more relation to falling. Also, Sky City has presumably fallen judging from the first post, so it also ties into that.

If I think of two more I'll post them, but this is what I got first. Could vary the first word if something like Inferno sounds better than Flames. Doubt I'll get something better than that though, since I couldn't get anything that relates to things you mentioned in your story better than that. XD

ok, ok, so after loads of time thinking about a good name (5 minutes, it almost became a waste of time :p) i came up with:

1- demon's duty (series)
2- perishing skies (series)
(wait, i'll assume the bad guy is named illidan... or arthas... or deathwing, i dont know, but i'll assume it is illidan stormrange, becouse we're talking about the burning legion :p)
3-the rise of stormrange's army (series) (or it can be just the "rise of stormrange", and you can change "stormrange" to every single name you want, ofc :))

ok, those are mine...


EDIT:

Not really. Not at all, actually. Deathwing is the villain of Cataclysm, if I remember correctly. This is based on WoW lore, where the actual main bad guy is Sargeras, the great enemy of all life (OK his title is rediculous).

man, i've never had the patience to read all the lore, the quests, etc... but i've always thoke sargeras objective was simply mess up with the draeneis, making them become foul demons, and since they didnt accept he spent ages trying to end up the draenei race, destroying every single thing in his path... (and yeah, i know the burning legion is his, but i thoke he was still tryin' to find the draeneis and letted illidan in charge of the burning legion, since both illidan and the burning legion spend their life in the outlands...

but, as i said, i dont know the lore :p

If you don't know the lore then I suppose you don't know a crap about first invasion? Knowing it might maybe help but this one is supposed to be based on third war.
