« on: July 22, 2013, 06:41:23 pm »
I'm getting myself some TSA apparel made (a band tour-style sweater and a circumfix hat) and I'm considering getting a few t-shirts made up in a similar style to the sweater: Who are the Dunyain? written on the front and R. Scott Bakker on the back above The Second Apocalypse Tour and The Brain Brain Tour.

What kind of contest might we run and offer the t-shirts as prizes?

Awesome! Well I don't know about winning, but I'd certainly buy one.

Lol, you, sir, are a sweetheart. I have no issues investing money into Bakker's non-profit advertising machine (i.e. us). I'll let you know the details of pricing and, should no contest arise (which could be something massively simple, just to generate some interest!), then perhaps you can make a donation in mine name to e-karma and I'll ship you a shirt :P.

Welcome back Jax. I know you registered earlier, but this is the first I've seen you post on the new board. Nice to know that people made the switch.

The Desert Wolf has finally made his way back to the forums too.  It took me much longer than I'd care to admit, but life always gets in the way of pursuing my passion for the Second Apocalypse.

  I'd be interested in a shirt or sweater too.

A contest where everyone wins, sort of the opposite of life in Earwa

I've had ideas for t-shirts for some time, Quinthane, I've just never gotten around to making it a reality.

I was hoping a contest might attract some fans but it has been relatively quiet.

I recently found a pretty good shop to do the work, I literally just haven't taken the time to design the layout, pick fonts, etc (to format it for this place specifically cuts down the costs as does buying in bulk).

They also seemed mildly concerned someone might persecute them for printing the titles of copyrighted material but... I don't see an issue. Bakker's lawyers want to sue my broke ass for doing the publishers job for them and affecting free advertising, go right ahead.

some suggestions for tee-shirt slogans/bumper stickers/etc:

1) WWKD (what would kellhus do)

2) My Other Vehicle is The Probability Trance

3) "Hello, No God. It's me, Cnaiur."

4) Do you bear the Mark or are you just ugly?

5) The School of the Mandate "Step into the sky!"

Hilarious, Quinthane.  I particularly like the probability trance option.  A few more:

1) Got Trinket?
2) The Consult:  Providing Alternatives to Damnation Since Far Antiquity
3) Chorae:  For when you absolutely, positively have to salt a sorcerer
No whistling on the slog!
