I just went to buy one and noticed that no Nomic microbadge exists. I'm considering making one, but I'm not sure what it would look like. Any suggestions?

Some things I've thought of so far have been a quill pen, a gavel, a stylized 'N' or maybe the number 101. Thoughts?

The gavel is already used for "Rules Lawyer". I really like the #101!

Maybe a scroll with writing on it?

Well, I've tried, and concluded that I'm terrible at making microbadges.

I'm posting a request in the new microbadges thread for someone else to make one.

You can't even make a "#101'?? How hard can this be, man? ;-)

Obviously, I've never tried.

Why is there no Word Games Forum or Subdomain?

There should be a Word Games Subdomain, or at least a Word Games Forum!

How about a stack of index cards with writing on them (maybe numbered)?

Or several index cards layed out, perhaps with lines connecting them.

Or maybe just the word "Nomic".

If it;s the word, or just the letter N, what font should it be?

Some possibilities:
A typewriter-like font (American Typewriter)
A plain, common serif type (Times Roman, Century Schoolbook)
An "old English" blackletter, scribe-type font

I'm the weirdo who purchased overtext solely for the purpose of stating that Kaffedrake's overtext makes me feel melancholy.

Is there still interest in a Nomic microbadge? I can take a shot at it. Was there any consensus on the what it should portray? Some things are easier than others obviously when only 16x16 pixels are used.

I'd buy one if I liked it. As an incredibly abstract game, it's hard to know what it should look like. I think "101" or some sort of stylized "N" or a gavel would be good.

There wasn't much input during the week that poll was open.

Any comments on this more formal-looking version?



The font is a variation on Palantino. The text color is the same as the book cover.
