I'm looking for an image that symbolizes PbF gaming.
Can anybody point something like that out to me?
Better yet, is anyone willing to create such an image for me and all of us geeks to use?

To spice it up a little bit, I'm offering 15 for the first ten users who design and upload original images. What's more, each of you can get this sum up to three times (for three different pics). If ten persons submit three images each, you rob me of 450 geekgold!

Feel free to create more images - I might throw some more geekgold at you, anyway!

I have nothing in particular in mind regarding graphic style. While it doesn't have to be an explanatory pic (someone who doesn't know PbF doesn't need to understand your image), I would still prefer images that present the basic ideas. A black and white drawing is just as great as photorealistic imagery.

If I get more than three submissions, we'll have a voting for the best, so you can win not just geekgold, but also fame and glory! Voting will be held in early April. All images submitted will be eligible for the prize at the end. I'll give 100GG to the winner, plus all GG tipped to my posts in this thread.

Shared imagined space, fingers typing, people collaborating and adventuring in fantastic worlds via forum posts... I'm not saying it's easy. I'm saying here's a chance for cool images!

Is there a deadline? Probably. How does the 31st of March sound to you?

Impress us!

I'm no artist, but I may try my hand at some rough ideas. And then, if they're liked, they can be taken and created by someone with talent.

Perhaps something to show folks from all over the world playing together?

Or showing an individual who's busy with work/baby/etc., but clicking on a computer with a caption saying something about "That's how I RPG" or such?

Thanks, schizoid! Although I'm open for all kinds of stuff, I'm looking for images that show PbF roleplaying. I never said it would be easy!

A d20 on a keyboard, with the whole image converted to greyscale apart from the red colour of the d20 and the letters P, B and F on the keyboard. If I get out a deccent camera rather than a phone and do some proper editing rather than bleary-eyed-post-midnight editing then it might work.

 


Fat Gandalf, nice idea! If it's okay with you, I'll wait for the decent camera/ proper editing version - or would you rather have some geekgold right away?

Edit (2014-04-02): Geekgold given out.

I probably should not have been soft on this point so far, but I still want to encourage more submissions. Please upload your images to your user galleries.

I think Morganus' is my favorite so far, but initially I had a similar idea to Gandalf:

Hey, all. I hope I'm not too late to join the fun. This piece was made by stitching together a couple of creative commons cliparts, and isn't exactly flawless, but it might be what you're looking for.

Thanks for everybody participating! I'll try to squeeze in a few minutes (possibly today, probably tomorrow, but I won't guarantee anything) and put up a poll. I seem to remember promising a GG prize for the overall winner, and others have graciously and generously added to the prize pot!

In the meantime, is there anything I should know about (or put down rules) regarding the voting procedure? I'm doing this for the first time (not the polling, but the polling-for-a-winner).
