Doing some refresher research on color theory today ... sometimes I really regret selling back my college books. A base color selection can be completely subjective, but the accompanying and contrasting colors are not random. Humans react to color combinations based on cultural cues (red+green=Christmas, etc), and *mathematical calculations*.
This is one of the hardest concepts to teach new designers who want to randomly pick colors because they "look good".

Back in a prior life, I played lots (lots) of WoW. When the guild I was in combined with another, I was asked to propose a new logo. This is what I came up with. Found it while cleaning out an old file server.
