The Janus Event

Business Brief

The Janus Event is an upcoming MMO-RPG game. Please read the the extended summary below, but in essence the Earth has had to rebuild after a cosmic event and two tribes have arisen in a state of bloody war against each other.

This has effectively plunged humanity back into the dark ages. As such futuristic or space themed logos are not appropriate.

Must be flat (no shimmer effects etc)
Medieval or dark-age type symbolism is appropriate
Avoid "space-age" or "futuristic" styling

EXTENDED SUMMARY
Janus, a dwarf planet a third the size of the Moon, entered the solar system from the
distant reaches of space. Set on a collision course with the Moon, its sudden arrival, size and trajectory made any attempt to stop or alter its course impossible. On a clear night, Janus slammed into the full Moon. It sundered the Moon into two large irregular fragments and created a ring of glittering ice and debris that now orbits the Earth. The force of the impact triggered the Long Night; a shower of meteors that wiped out the vast majority of the human population of Earth. The bombardment spawned huge fire-storms that raged across the planet. Oceanic impacts caused titanic tsunamis that drowned entire nations. Earthquakes shook mountains to rubble and sent island nations to the bottom of the sea.

There was a great exodus of the human population. They fled cities and towns for the safety of the wilds. Chaos reigned. The fire-storms and impacts sent gigatons of dust and ash into the atmosphere and blocked the sun. The planet was plunged into a celestial twilight. The irregular patterns of storms and ash clouds caused global droughts, snap-frosts and the death of most flora and fauna. By the time the cataclysmic eventide finally abated the planet was on the brink of complete ecological collapse. As a result 99% of the human population perished. The chaos of that Long Night was so absolute that humanity was set back a millennia. A whole generation were born into a dark hostile world where elders spoke of a golden age long past. A grand civilized era of mechanical marvels. Vessels that ferried people through the sky and across the seas. Light that came not from fire but from dancing images beamed through the air. To that night-born generation, it was like magic. A magic past free of suffering, hunger and horror.

When the storms and ash ceased, the sun returned. The surviving pockets of humanity ended their nomadic way of life. The time of wondering the savage earth in search of food and shelter had come to an end. In this new age of restoration, two distinct groups emerged from those heartiest of survivors; two sects forged by the Long Night. They were alike in many ways, but differed in more. Such difference fuelled embers of conflict and before long the flames of war raged between them. They were known as; The Night Guard and The New Dawn.
