We've considered this in the past, but it's just not really feasible for Keydar to do (or any of the "cast" really).

The two options are to setup some sort of thing with a company that does this sort of thing already. My current guild has done this in the past, and it's actually kind of feasible. The problem is, that this is T-Shirts only (maybe coffee cups too). You also need a certain amount of "buy in" to even make that worth it. Selling this to 5 people just isn't going to cut it.

As far as plushies or whatever, those are considerably more expensive for us to get created and manufactured. Which in turn requires a certain minimum amount of sale, that I just don't think there is enough demand out there for. On top of needing to store and ship this stuff. If we do it ourselves, well, ugh. If we get someone else to do it, that's even more cost on top of things.

So, maybe if someday Keydar gets very enterprising he'll setup something with a T-Shirt company, but chances are there won't be any DLC swag for you guys to buy :/.

i understand where your coming from krom so i made this topic into a poll. perhaps if we saw the results of what the readers thought you could make a decision on wheather or not it will be profitable. call it a spark of motivation if you will :D

im telling you now i would pay good money for a Gigz "im a good healer" shirt :wink:

A poll somewhat indicates intent, yes. But it has to be very hugely in favour and everyone on the forums would have to answer it, etc. etc. The only way to really do this is to... well, actually do it. Get people to agree to buy something, make a list. Check how much it costs and if it's feasible, do it. If not, oh well.

Not saying STOP THE POLLS or anything, just saying that it probably won't matter much if Keydar isn't really up to doing it.

when it comes to enslaving the entire human race, spare no expense!


well on a website like customink.com they have t-shirt group rates as low as 6 shirts..... could be worth looking into

Ive voted yes, but i must agree with Krom, its probably too much work too put into it too produce a rather limited production of this stuff

But Suztang you could try too check if you could find a reasonable place too get these things done, and if yes then you could probably get Keydar to make some nice artwork for it, and then you could put it too work yourself?? :wink: :wink: :!: :!:
