@EPPWanabe, I like #2 the best out of your submissions. I'm not a big fan of the font, I think in this case I am favoring san-serif fonts. I also think that I'd like Silver and Arcade to be distinguishable, in your submissions they run together.
I know that you are trying to hit the fantasy component of what I described, and I think that is hard to do. I've tried to create logos myself with a sword and I gave up on it because it's hard to have a natural integration of the image and the text.
Please don't give up though.
