The poll numbers are in, and the winner is… GOLD!
For the purpose of tallying, I threw out the responses that didn’t give a definite answer.

Tidbits of other advice came in, such as adding something more to make the gold more harmonious. I came up with splotches (a failed attempt at gold flecks, but I’m still working on them). I also changed the color of my name (a few people recommended this), and added a semi-transparent gradient behind the title (Carrie Butler suggested this). Sorry, Milo, I haven’t figured out the right settings to stretch War out to the length of Thanmir just yet. 🙂
This is where I am currently at:
What do you think? Are the gold splotches a good addition, or do they detract? Any further suggestions?

I think it’s perfect now! Gold was the best choice. Now both title and name pop.
Now that is one thorough polling system. Congrats!
Looks good. 🙂
I’d like to see it small. The splotches may not show up. Have you considered gold flecks? What program do you use?
I’ll post a thumbnail later today. I actually started my attempts with gold flecks. The didn’t look natural, so I smudged them.
I use Paint.NET for most of my graphics. If I need a lighter, airbrushed touch, I’ll use gimp. Thanmir War was done all in Paint.NET.
I like the gold accents and having your name in gold to match the title. Looks great!
I think it’s beautiful.
Can’t say I’m surprised that gold won over green by so much. You’re name certainly looks better now it matches.
I wonder, rather than splotches or flecks, if a deliberate light dappling (like sunlight through leaves) would work.
Sounds like a good idea. I’ll see if I can do that.
Ooh, I like that even better. Changing the color of your name balances it out more. Perfect!
It looks GOOD! Nice work, Loni.
Love it! I agree with some comments above that your name in gold balances the look. Fantastic.
The results are pretty conclusive, eh? I love how you’ve changed it. Very cool looking.

How great that you got the help you needed, Loni. All my best!
so pretty and it really pops!
I voted green, but I must say that the gold is VERY effective! Looks great!
I like it! 😀
I always knew I had good taste! 😉 Lol! It looks great, Loni. The gold w/the light shining on it really makes the title pop.
Ooh, I love the gold! It definitely makes the title pop, like the others have said. I really like the gold splotches AND the gradient behind the title (did I use the right word?) 🙂 I think it looks awesome! Great job!
Woohoo! You know I love to see the evolution of covers. Well done! 😀
