I figure there will be some kind of send-off thread for the program ("last chance, you get forty stars!!!"), and they can do this thing they do sometimes where everyone who posts to say "Thanks Dave you roxx" gets the star assigned to them by Evil Bob or someone more evil if possible. Then it can be left purchasable after that and maybe in time I can get four sales with considerably less illicit earnings except Dave and/or Bob will tip me something probably (I know how these things work you see).

The one other "obvious" thing to do would be a "Thank you Dave for a year with Citizen Recognition" badge because some people seem to feel very strongly about this thing:



Or with the avatar in the middle, which is a mess:



Or with the star smallinated:

This one is a roleplaying game, so Cthulhu Confidential RPG fan is correct, like you suggest

This one, however, is not an RPG, it's a campaign setting (game world) to the game Mutants & Masterminds. So the name should be "Hero High fan" and it should be submitted under Role-Playing Games -> Mutants & Masterminds. Or you can name it "Mutants & Masterminds - Hero High fan". You can see how these examples were done:

mb mb mb

I prefer "Hero High fan", since as far as I know, the D&D badges are the only ones with the RPG name in the setting badges, but it's up to you.

So I was thinking - I'd like to kick off an initiative to get more RPG microbadges created. I was thinking of having an RPGGeek-specific microbadge request geeklist created.

I intend to focus much of my time on creating RPG badges from here on but I thought it might work better with interaction from the RPG community rather than just me pulling random art from trade publications always.

Thoughts? Other ideas?

As an incentive to participate I thought I'd set up a one-time contest for the best RPG microbadge designed during a certain time period. I know Dave was against having a "RPG microbadge of the year" type thing, but this would be a one-off event. Would you be ok with that, Jonna?

I would, very much.

Lemme give this some thought, as I might be interested in maybe making it more than only one-time deal, to draw more designer in RPG microbadging.

I like both of these, but this one "feels" more like the source. But maybe you want to poll these two, to see what those that don't usually make posts about microbadges, think?

That's not what I'm looking for, don't worry. I merely want to drive more eyeballs to this thread and hopefully spark some more interest in creating for this domain which has always been an afterthought or intimidating to most microbadge designers.

We totally need more Role-Playing Related, Character Types badges.

The "I play a..." badges... are pretty D&D/OSR-centric with medieval fantasy occupations and no hackers, deckers, pilots, super heroes, etc...

And the Role-Playing Related, Artists and Designers needs more female representation.

Just some thoughts...

I'm intrigued by adding more female artists and designer fan badges! When/if we get a badge initiative going you'll have to give us a list to work from!


Also...It's just sad getting 3 votes in a poll (ad one is my own vote)....

I'd say things on the RPGG side have in general been slowing down for a year now. Not sure why.

I like these badges, though. (FYI, Cthulhu Confidential hasn't actually been released yet, so sales may be slow for a while!)
