This is the thread to post your ideas, requests or to get feedback on a design BEFORE you post it to the new Microbadge Entry System (see the Official RPG Microbadge Submission thread for details on the new MB entry system).

More microbadging information:
The Microbadge wiki entry contains further general microbadge information.
The Microbadge Design and Submission wiki entry contains all you should need to know about designing and submitting microbadges.
Besides this very thread, you may also use the Microbadge Request & Design Feedback GeekList v4 [CLOSED] to request new microbadge creations.
Subscribe to the New Microbadges Available for Purchase (and other Microbadge Events) Subscription Thread to periodically be informed of the new microbadges that are approved.

If you are looking for non-RPG-specific Microbadges, you should check out the Big BGG Microbadge thread: Microbadge Submissions, Design, and Feedback (post all new microbadges here before submission)

Okay... I'll start with a request.

Rune - how about those female character badges?!

Re: RPG Microbadges - Design, Discussion and Request Thread
Should a microbadge for a specific RPG go under the category:

Game Related
* Game Series

or should there be a new category added for them:

Role-Playing (General)
* RPG

?

Neither

As you'll see, we've put in about 300 RPG microbadges over the last four months (while BGG was shut down on MBs, we managed a little backdoor magic and got some in). The layout for RPG-centric microbadges is as follows:

Role-Playing - top level
» {some great RPG} - subdir
» {another great RPG}

Role-Playing (General) - top level
» Character Types
» Equipment
» Live Action Role-Playing
» Magazines
» Mechanics
» Podcasts
» Publishers
» Races
» Settings
» Stances
» Systems

RPGG - top level
No subdirs... special place for award badges, etc.

I can't find a "Role-Playing" top-level category. That's why I asked.

A bug with the new MB system... it's there, just not visible on the browse menu yet. Daniel is fixing it now!

EDIT: Daniel has fixed it. You can now browse to Role-Playing microbadges.

Re: RPG Microbadges - Design, Discussion and Request Thread
During the MB hiatus, I've had 2 requests for an RPG Publisher microbadge.

The Designer/Artist/Editor MBs have been a huge hit:

Any chance we can see some similar design for an 'RPG Publisher'?

Is there any particular publisher tools of the trade that come to mind?

I couldn't think of any... maybe a book with a seal of approval on it?

On second thought, that might suck.

Would love a microbadge for Grimtooth, from the Grimtooth's Traps series.

And something for Zombie Cinema, too!

No ideas?! The dollar bill won't be appropriate I'm afraid

Come on guys... I know you're a little rusty with the break between Microbadge Season One and Season Two but I have ultimate faith that someone can turn these beautiful little books into a publisher MB.

How about ... the book under one of those old-style printing presses? Or maybe just the printing press if that's too complicated?

Dave, what about the book with some gears to symbolize the production process?

Hey, that's not bad! The smaller gear is a bit light - any chance to darken it?

Don't know if it is possible, but maybe three books behind a window?

Smaller gear a bit darker:



I know there's only a slight difference but when the colour of the smaller gear gets too close to the large one's colour, the point where they touch each other becomes a dark blob...

We did our very best to make the 3 existing badges nearly identical by using the exact same book at the (almost) exact same spot and just make the difference with the tool on top of it. I've been thinking about alternatives such as books in boxes, books half finished, multiple books, etc... But IMO it would be a shame to let go of the original design.

Understood. What about a barcode or maybe an stamp?

Better! Anyone else have any tweaks or takes on this design? I'd love to get an RPG publisher MB in the system this week.

Nice, I'd buy both if approved.

I'm totally in favor of the MB request by Stelio here:

I'd love to buy a Dwarven Forge microbadge if anyone has the inclination. If not, maybe I'll get around to it one of these days.

Here's an idea for a microbadge for "Rifts® the role-playing game."


Any thoughts?
