    New CGC T-Shirt!

    Post  Paeter on September 29th 2016, 8:25 pm

    I'm thinking of making a new CGC T-Shirt (to debut during my Extra-Life Live Stream Nov. 5th) that has the URL on the back and our mascot (see forum heading above) and some text on the front. It's possible I could do more than one, but I don't have time to make a ton, so I'd like help figuring out what resonates with you guys. I've got a few ideas I'd like your feedback on and I'm wide open to your ideas as well. I'd like the tone of the shirt to avoid being combative, defensive or preachy. (My "seek the truth" option seems somewhat appropriate, but a bit slogany for my tastes.) Here are my current ideas:

    Volleyball? Let's KILL DRAGONS after youth group!

    We may throw the dice, but the LORD determines how they fall. - Prov. 16:33 (NLT)

    Someone finally made a T-shirt for us!

    Seek the truth!

    Men's Retreat? I thought we were LARPing?

    Women's Retreat? I thought we were LARPing?

    Does anyone else think of The Borg during "call and response"?

    the reverse of that one would be true for me

    Really? Did your church youth group play fantasy games after their meetings? Or do you just mean you'd prefer volleyball if you were doing that right now?

    I like: 'Someone finally made a t-shirt for us' but it might be a bit obscure.
    The volleyball one gets my vote.

    I like Volleyball and played it my first two years of college

    Okay, an updated full list of options on the table with a single numbering system:


    First, my initial ideas:

    1. Volleyball? Let's KILL DRAGONS after youth group!

    2. We may throw the dice, but the LORD determines how they fall. - Prov. 16:33 (NLT)

    3. Someone finally made a T-shirt for us!

    4. Seek the truth!

    5. Men's Retreat? I thought we were LARPing?/Women's Retreat? I thought we were LARPing?

    6. Does anyone else think of The Borg during "call and response"?Matt and Kim added these options:

    Matt and Kim's additions:

    7. What would Jesus roll?

    8. What would Jesus wield?

    9. In Christ, there is neither DC nor Marvel, Advanced nor 3rd Edition, Kirk nor Picard

    Francisco's ideas:

    10. (This Conan the Barbarian parody is a front/back concept don't know if that is feasible)
    Front: "What is best in life?"
    Back: "Forgive your enemies, see them delivered before you, and to hear the exultation of their women"

    11. You killed the NPC! Make a forgiveness roll while I check my eManuel

    12. It's dangerous to go alone. Take this Sword of Truth"


    Rickster and Adam Collings have said they like #9

    Mikel (of the limited options I initially presented) liked #1

    How about everyone try and pick a top 3 and maybe we can start narrowing down the list that way?

    Top 3

    3- 1. Volleyball? Let's KILL DRAGONS after youth group!
    2- 9. In Christ, there is neither DC nor Marvel, Advanced nor 3rd Edition, Kirk nor Picard
    and my number one pick...
    1- 10. (This Conan the Barbarian parody is a front/back concept don't know if that is feasible)
    Front: "What is best in life?"
    Back: "Forgive your enemies, see them delivered before you, and to hear the exultation of their women"

    All three are solid in my view, and with the front/back conundrum of #10, I can see it just not working out.
    But I'd love to see it anyway.

    Just a reminder, deadline for input on this will be this coming Sunday the 23rd. Then on Monday I'll get up in the morning, see what's most popular and go from there.

    NEW DESIGNS AVAILABLE NOW!

    The "volleyball" design seemed to resonate with the largest number of people for our new CGC shirt. And while I was in the spreadshirting mood I decided to make t-shirts out of the covers for each part of the Spirit Blade Trilogy! So there are a total of 4 new designs you can check out!

    With the new shirts, I added urls to the back sides for better branding, which brought the cost up a few dollars. But in an effort to help these shirts get out there and direct people to CGC and Spirit Blade Productions I'm selling them at a zero profit price point. (It's enough for me that anyone wants to help spread the word!)

    You can see all of our available designs at a glance right here: http://www.spiritblade.com/media/

    Then click on any t-shirt image to go to our spreadshirt store, where you can choose a custom size, fit and color for your order.

    I hope you guys like the way they turned out!
