"A Benign and Malevolent God"

Post by Raven_Crowking » Wed Jun 27, 2012 8:29 am

My partner doesn't play role-playing games. But she supports me in my interests, and I bounce ideas off of her frequently.

Last night we were talking about a module I am working on. I was explaining how various descriptions and events were designed to draw players into areas where they would gain clues before having to deal with the truly evil things those clues referred to. Her response:

"You are a benign and a malevolent god."

I want that on my business cards!

That is pretty sweet. It would also look good on a t-shirt along with the "compatible with DCC RPG" logo. :wink:

I think there should be a black t-shirt with the collector cover art on it in either gold or silver. Front and back, just like the book, including text. If GG doesn't license something like that soon, I'm just going to have to have it custom made.

Actually, just the 'compatible' logo, done big, would make a fun shirt...

Actually, that had occured to me as well. Simple, and promotes the game.

The problem is, how do I get one made cheap in time for GenCon? I can go to my local sports store that does printing, but there is a $30 screening charge or something like that even if I design the image. It would cost me $40 or more just for one shirt. :(

You could use transferable paper; print on it with a ink or laser printer, and then iron it on a t-shirt. It's very cheap and it's quite good.

Never tried it, but it does sound reasonable. I assume I can find this at my local office supply store?
