Name The Tavern's New Podcast - Win $10 RPGNow Credit if We Pick Your Suggestion

+Jason Paul McCartan and I are looking for a name for the upcoming OSR podcast we are about to inflict upon the gaming community, and we need your help in naming it.

Add your suggestions to either this blogpost or any attached G+ threads to enter. We'll pick one (hopefully) by Monday, so get your suggestions to us by Sunday.

Our plan is to involve the OSR Community on many levels of the podcast, much as we do here at The Tavern.

Just an idea of the kind of podcast you're in for, here's the disclaimer we are toying around with at the moment:
"Warning: You are about to enter The Tavern. All bets are off. There WILL be gratuitous language and stuff that's not safe for work or people of low constitution or willpower. The dice will lay where they fall. So, enter at your own peril or find another podcast to listen to, one that doesn't make you roll save versus..." (cue intro)

    1. This perhaps applies to the angry dwarf persona. Maybe it can be the name of a segment on the show, where Tenk spouts off about stuff that made him angry that particular week.

  10. Don't know about the main title, but could be a segment:

    Tenkar's Tall Tales

    The front room of Tenkar's Tavern is frequently the host of travelling Bards and Storytellers, and occasionally, on certain nights, Tenkar himself will rise to the dais and regale the patrons with a tale of his own incredible adventures. Come join us as we enter the tavern, grab a pint, and pause by the hearth to listen.
