Revised flier

Based on the feedback (here & at home — my daughter likes this alternate picture just as much as the Trampier pic), I’ll be posting variations of this:

Players wanted flier-4

For some reason my PDF converter decide that it likes it landscape rather than letter oriented, but it prints the same.  I did variants with the pic here, the Rogues Gallery cover illustration by Erol Otus, the Trampier pic from last time, and also the “Art thou feeling it, now, Mr. Crabs?” Herr Rients posted some time back.  (The last one might attract too young a crowd though — I’d rather not have minors in the game, since we sometimes drink and curse and debate the ethics of torture.)  Another great image would be this.

I know Trampier doesn’t want to be contacted about D&D stuff so permission there is a non-starter; I’ll see if I can find a way to contact Erol Otus for permission to use either graphic on this flier.  Otherwise I guess the right thing to do would be to find some public domain image, although actual B/X or AD&D art would be ideal for sparking memories in gamers of a certain age.  On the other hand that John D. Battenstuff Telecanter’s been posting is not bad.

  1. Do you really want players who need to be told to tear off the tab and contact you?

    • It’s Ohio, man.

      People here don’t know enough to vote in their own self-interest (just now electing the party that has hammered the middle class into near extinction, and a governor who campaigned on preventing a massive rail project that would have created tons of jobs and long-term economic viability for the state), so I don’t assume they know what the hanging chads for.

  2. seriously i wouldn’t worry about permission–it’s not like you’re making millions off these pictures

    • I guess you’re right.

      In fact, I think I’ll use your “Medusa” drawing, I’m sure that’ll get attention. 😛

      It’s more the principle of the thing (using someone else’s work for my own ends), but I hope anyone who draws the sort of thing I’d use wouldn’t mind their work enabling some die-rolling and dungeon looting, whether or not I can get in touch with them.

      I just noticed you “Medusa with blind slaves” drawing is up for auction. Do the D&D-related pictures sell better or worse than your punk/gothic chick pictures? Or is that really a valid distinction to make?
