I see... so it has nothing to do with the fort or the game Ticonderoga. Got it. Perhaps you should specify pencil in the microbadge name. This is a gaming community after all, so the first thing I thought of was a game.

There are plenty of badges for Game of Thrones the game, but none for the TV series.

So, I've been working on a few.

- Daenerys Targaryen

- Jaime Lannister

- Tyrion Lannister

- Cersei Lannister

- Jon Snow

- Eddard Stark

- Katelyn Stark

Worth doing? Other thoughts, comments, suggestions?

I haven't seen GOT, but Eddard is recognizable even for me, so I think fans of the series won't have any problem with recognizing the other characters

I'm really not sure a TV series merits individual character badges.

If you make them, they should be more uniform than they are now - similar in format, hue and sharpness.

That brings up a good question. How does a convention get the permission for all attendees (that are BGG users) to get the badge awarded to them for free? I know some conventions have been able to get them doled out, but who would one talk to to get that to happen?

You obviously haven't seen the show and possibly not read the books?

Some of the best television production I've seen in many, many years. Superb casting, epic in scale, confronting and gritty. Everyone has favourite characters for various reasons (love or hate them). I just wanted to provide choice, because all the characters are so good.

The badges are converted from wildly different photos, making them all consistent isn't as easy as it looks. These were a first draft, for review and discussion.

Hey now,

Here is another in my list of badges I want to make so I can buy them. This is for Preacher, one of the best comic book series of all time. A classic by Ennis and Dillon. Truly one of their best. if you like comics and haven't read it, I would highly suggest it.

Here is a sample source photo (and my favorite of the designs I did)

 


Here is the microbadge for it.

The "main" characters haven't all been introduced into the tv series yet. Apart from Khal Drogo all the above have ongoing major influence. (I always felt Khal Drogo was a bit of a stepping stone rather than having a personal stamp on the unfolding events. But that's a pretty good badge for him.)

(Admittedly, two of the above characters are dead already.)

edit: and my nudge a while back for a "GoT widow/er" design could only specifically be about the books, btw, though these tv characters are pretty good. Of course, "it's only a tv show" and maybe a single design of the show's logo thingy might serve.

If I remember correctly, it's "Dixon Ticonderoga No. 2 Soft" or something like that, right? I think that would have more flavor, apart from being singular to No. 2 pencils.

Ticonderoga is the aircraft carrier Drew used to serve aboard back in the war before they tried to cross the equator and the international date line at the same time from an oblique counterclockwise angle. Their advanced weaponry from the past impressed no one, but the pencils were pretty OK.

These are the main characters, in fact there are a few more but I've not tried producing badges for them. The books have literally hundreds of characters, which is reduced for the TV show. Most people familiar with the show or the books have a favourite character.

There are numerous other games, shows and things around this site that have multiple badges. Nobody is forcing anyone to buy them all, although it probably does play into the hands of the OCD collector. devil

Nine thumbs and a tip did suggest people were accepting of them at the outset. I took on your suggestion and made some adjustments to them, selecting the better ones. Nobody else was prepared to offer any other useful advice.

Just because they're in a poll, doesn't automatically assume I'll submit them. The poll is also useful to determine which is popular or not and make adjustments accordingly, which is exactly why I include "Please comment" if you vote No.

But nobody offers any salient advice?
