Well, if I remember correctly I believe it was a collaberation of silliness which brought on the notion that Doom didn't cost anything, which is silly, as 'Free Doom' is obviously an imperative. And thus I launched the Doom Must Be Set Free campaign in the name of jellybeans and stuff.

Free Doom! Doom must be set free!

You set the ball rolling, to be sure, but one must not discount the efforts of the others. I believe the Free Doom movement to be one of the great examples of Smarchly collective silliness. Kinda like the jellybean factory...

Re: Quiller's Mint T-Shirt Design Contest!!!!

Hi guys,
believe it or not I just came to this forum because I was after some help with a Tshirt design I want to make, and I found this thread, and thought I'd post here to see if anyone can help me. If this is the wrong place then please let me know.
I'm after a highres image of the cover of the City of Golden Shadow, or preferably just a good quality image of the city as it appears on the cover (without text etc). I've had a look around and the closest I can find is this, which isn't quite what I'm after. Does anyone have a good quality picture of this, or can let me know where I can find one?

*Edit* What I'm really after is something exactly like this, but way way way bigger.

Not sure if a super high rez version exist on the web, but you can maybe go to the artist's page:

Re: Quiller's Mint T-Shirt Design Contest!!!!

If I had time to draw, I would try to draw this not-very-creative idea that keeps floating around my brain... something with a stem of mint and a quill, based on the silly flag I made for the "Nettle Castle" (a silly construction in the garden) ages ago (two crossed nettles).
Sadly, no time, no time at all.

Re: Quiller's Mint T-Shirt Design Contest!!!!

So I was doodling on the bus today...

I was trying to make this look like an actual inn sign... still not sure whether I should continue working on it. I'd need a stem of mint as a model, but that's one of the plants I never got around to planting.

Re: Quiller's Mint T-Shirt Design Contest!!!!

Great Idea pity I am too late to enter so which design won ? What about having the same Idea on a Halloween event a dress up EG : you pick a character from the SHADOWMARCH and dress up take a photo and the best presented and most voted wins it's a HALLOWEEN dress up ? I just joined so I am not too shure how you go about the permision and so on but in IRELAND we say" shure till be mighty crack to be shure" just finished Shadowmarch and starting Shadowplay and it's wicked ,the last time I read any of Tad's was the Dragonbone chair saga many years ago and all I can say is can't wait for the movie ,Tolkin's met his match .

I'm not much one for costumes, myself, but plenty of other people around here are so it's worth a shot.
