All,

As many of you know, T-shirts for CW have been requested for purchase since as of last GenCon 2014.

Since our SOP is to be super slow at everything , we are just now getting this online. Ok, really, it's that our art director, Rich, has been stretched thin with art tasks for Theomachy, Orcs Must Die!, our upcoming secret project, and The Gods War...oh, and now the infamous CW Season 2.

In any case, we have them finally, if any are interested.

Some of you may recognize ironregime who posts here in our CW forums from time to time. He has been invaluable in helping us put these together.

If you or someone you know may be interested in shirts for their favorite faction, please check out our shirts here:
https://petersengames.com/shop/t-shirts/

These will not be offered in season 2, so please don't ask surprise
This is for several boring misc. reasons that I don't want to go into, but basically, these are sourced through a print on demand service, which means we don't have to keep stock, and can therefore offer far more designs than otherwise (I think we have about 12 or more, and may be adding more over time).

EDIT:
the way pricing works, in case it seems confusing on the site, basically this:
1 for $24, but 2 for $21 each. And 3 or more for $15 each. This price includes shipping for the US.
Canada, I believe is $4 to ship 1 shirt, and $3 to ship two or more (not per shirt, just $3 TOTAL for shipping 2 or more).
International works similar to Canada, only I think it is $8 for 1 shirt, but then $7 for 2 or more ($7 TOTAL).

These prices are sort of weird like this, because they are basically based on our print on demand source, and we simply just do a simple mark up. Their shipping costs somehow go down when you add more shirts, which we think is weird, but they may be playing with their own margins in complex ways. In any case, it is what it is, and hopefully not too pricey.

EDIT:
the prices have been changed, and not for the better. 3+ shirts are not $20 each. Sorry! For a while they were cheaper. 1 and 2 shirt prices are the same.

SWEET! The Elder Thing shirt got made (thanks, Ironregime!)!

Here I am saving money for the Cthulhu Wars: The Second Invocation (or something like that) and now you go and put these shirts on sale. I am going to have to purchase an absolutely indefensible number of these for myself and my daughter. Thanks, guys!

I just realized...
our delay in putting the shirts up may mean some will have less money in their pockets for a season 2

Sometimes we just aren't good with timelines.

Joking aside, I wouldn't worry. If I'm buying a tee shirt for a game, it's not because there were gameplay items I chose not to buy because I sprang for the tee shirt. I think someone who buys a tee shirt for a board game is committing themselves to being a genuine fan of the game and getting most if not all of what you guys have to offer. There'd be no way to know, but it might actually end up helping you in terms of consumer psychology.

Mostly all 'Goth-nerd' black in color? No purple Azathoth and yellow 'yellow sign'?

Actually, we have a colored shirt for each of the 8 factions, but not yet ready to go. I dislike black shirts, because I live in TX and they are always hot. I also like band shirts, so I have a lot of them, and so many bands only offer black shirts - especially metal bands. I hate that they offer so little in color. So, I agree completely.

The reason they aren't ready to go, is because the printing company just shows us pics of the shirt color, and it would suck if the online color and the actual, physical color of the shirt don't quite match up, and then it looks bad (to give you an idea, the closest we could find for Sleeper, is a shirt color called Tangerine, and I'm just worried it won't look quite right).

So, perhaps we can let a few brave souls order the colored ones, and give us feedback? We haven't yet decided what to do - we may just get one of each and compare, but we just haven't done it yet.

Isn't all the writing of the faction slogans already in the faction colors, though? I would be concerned that it wouldn't show up as well. That"s why I was going to be happy with the black shirts. If the writing were in black, then I would definitely go with the faction color tee shirts. Regardless of ths shirt colors, I'm getting all the designs, of course...

The phrases are in black on the colored shirts.

Cool! Since the option is not there to select the different faction color tee shirts on the site yet, I will PM you soon to see how you want to handle the purchase. I can at least get some iPhone photos for you to see if you're satisfied with how they turned out.

How about at least offering each in white?

We have an additional white shirt (the basic Cthulhu Rising with no tag line).

But, now we have all the shirts also in their respective Faction colors, in case that is interesting to you.

EDIT:
sadly, our supplier does not have orange shirts for females (at least in the type of shirt we are using, the Gildan2000 or whatever), so for Sleeper's colored shirt...it's pink.
I just ordered one of those for my wife. We'll see how that turns out.

Does anyone have one of the shirts yet? Since the site just has the design blocked onto a stock image of a shirt I'm curious as to what the final product actually looks like. If no one has pictures, any chance these are going to be available at GenCon?

I have some of the shirts, but I haven't taken any pics yet. I'll try to do so soon and post here. They look pretty good in person. (Note: I only have black shirts, no colored ones.)

We will likely have things like coupons for free shirts at GenCon - but we will all be wearing the shirts so you can see some of them.

The idea behind doing it the way we're doing it now is that we don't need to keep stock (which means we make less money per shirt, but have no upfront costs, which is great for us!).

In any case, I only got colored shirts, and I think they look fine. I will show some pics later, I think they're all dirty right now.
