With Morrowind to Online they have had their own symbols used for the games cover and the games main menu, i want to create a Daggerfall symbol but i just don't know what design to use

Any suggestions?

*note* the Daggerfall title design is still unfinished.

Maybe something inspired in the dagger-shaped "D" of the original box logo would work?

So maybe it should be the crest for Daggerfall, the eponymous city/region?

I made this as an icon for my Daggerfall time ago, it's just the D, but I like it better than the messed-up-palette original icon:

My Deviantart page, I have some Daggerfall stuff in there.

I think both are viable options, but I much prefer the Underking overall. Even DOS icon has some old school appeal to it... Remembering all the old icons...

Here are some more icons, this time fan made:

I prefer using the dagger. :)
