(Don't worry, it won't literally be Sally.)
To no one's surprise, the winner of the Cradle bow-naming poll is Sally. Now one of the most dreaded shadow artifacts of the Cradle world will be named like a baby girl.
EDIT: Also, there were 720 votes in the thread! That's a lot of votes. It reminds me of the time when I had to count up votes manually, and then wept tears of blood.
Here's Paden's winning suggestion, copied from the original thread:
A female name as if it was sentient.
potential character dialog: "what's the name of your bow?"
So, per the spirit of the suggestion, I'm going to come up with a simple female name that fits the setting. Which won't be Sally, but could be something like Sali, Sari, Sa Li, or Jim.
Maybe in this culture Jim is a woman's name. You don't know.
