This is somewhat similar to the dead and very old Convention swag for promotion thread, but I also believe it is vastly different. In this meta thread, I want to collect a list of items that Stack Exchange can have made (we have a budget! and a designer!) that will help you, as well as Stack, promote the site at all times and places. These items have to be useful; t-shirts and stickers are fun and will probably be made anyway, but I am specifically looking for items that you can use during game play and are essential to it. For example, we got B&CG.Stack Exchange-branded Life Counter Sheets made up for use in Magic: The Gathering tournaments. These items need to be things people will actually use; don't think "cool" so much as "necessary."
In a chat conversation, these ideas were brought up. I invite critiques and clarifications:
- Gaming Icon
- Fudge Dice
- Dice Tower
When pitching an item below, make sure to be incredibly specific (links are always awesome).
NOTE that the intention behind these swag items is not to give them out to a million dumbfounded strangers, thus infuriating them with junk they have to carry around/throw away. The intention is to provide people in our community and the RPG community at large with items they will use, and are of good quality.
