This is small-scale, but still a good idea I think - check out Crocodile Games' site (and forum, natch) and mention how cool ROTA would be for players of Wargods of Olympus. I realized that I'm so excited about using their minis in ROTA, they might be just as excited.

That's good. A few well-placed comments by those active on other forums or blogs could reach a lot of gamers.

And jkratzer is absolutely right. Unless/until Jeff and Stefan say it's okay, no fliers.

That's why I put this thread under "Ask Dwarven Forge", and why I want a PDF on the website that we can download -- that would allow us to distribute DF's message (which is good) rather than trying to speak on their behalf (which is bad).

Thanks, jack. I do TRY to behave myself. And in THIS particular case, I'm speaking as a con committee member and as an ex-cop; I DON'T want to see anyone get in trouble, and that includes Jeff/Stefan and any enthusiastic DF supporters, as well as any Conventions.

So, Jeff, since you're pretty much the business-manager end of DF, speak unto us. Give us the word; are you and Stefan working on designing a Flyer for distribution? Farpoint is coming up in February, and they WILL have a Game Room. IF there's going to be a flyer available, then I'll drag my DF up there and some flyers and make both available to the Game Room chair. If not, then I'm not going to load 40-plus boxes of resin up when they may not even be interested in using it (and I'm not even registered for the con, just working Sunday at Temple of Trek - and thinking about a game about that for Shore Leave, using RotA!).

See ya!

This discussion had me feeling a bit of flashback, i swear something like this occured, where i thought a downloadable PDF would be a great idea that if people wanted to they could look at it and see the items in a set, (think the layout pics of all the bits, on a pagd then on the other page some photos in action) people really do some great setups and pulling some into a PDF would be pretty easy. And so i did a search for PDF... and found this thread from 2006 Colour Catalogue/User Guide Idea where yeah someone mentioned the idea of a nice Full color PDF to download.

DF has/had (honestly don't know if that gallery is still up) a slide show on the store page a while back that showcased some cool setups. Those pics, some of the contest pics, could be be put into a PDF pretty quickly and easily to make a Downlodable thingy, to use as Grass-Roots Advertisments/Cataloge. I say Contest pics becuase they show case DF only, but some of the other ones that aren't just DF, if they could get the permission of the Manufacturers, could be very spectacular to show the full breadth and depth of a fully accesorised DF layout.

Heck i have toyed with the idea of just putting togther one my self, to see what it could look like.

And as a side note, i have seen DF advertised on a atleast 1 website, I see a banner over at theminiaturespage fairly often, and i don't go there more than maybe once a week, for just about a half hour to look over stuff and then off to other cooler websites.


Oh and i do every so often try to (as i did a few weeks ago) just bring up DF over at Wizards, like in this threadterrain for star wars minis, but a nice PDF to show everything off would be the extra wow factor.

Are there any shows (video or radio) for gaming on YouTube or internet radio (Live365 or other) or podcast?

How would one go about getting DF (and/or Stefan) on one? The release of RotA should certainly count as gaming news, and having a new product showcased certainly shows people that DF is alive and well and still creating their hearts out.

What about a Wikipedia entry? Dwarven Forge appears on a list of game manufacturers, but there is no article.

These are all great ideas, thanks everyone so much for the brainstorming...this should be in Jeff's area/department and I am sure he is taking them all in and trying to digest everything...he has actually been sick for the last 2 weeks, so let's give him some time to go over everything and see what makes sense and what he has time for along with all his other regular "duties" ....wish we could hire an official "promoter" but just scaping by as usual.....thanks again everyone!

DF has the best fans in the world!

Let's grow some grass roots, he,he !

Sorry Jeff isn't well. Hope you feel better soon.

We just got an advisory at my workplace that "norovirus" is loose in the building, and we should all disinfect every surface and use hand sanitizer every thirty seconds. They make it sound like the Black Death has returned, but it is just the stomach flu, and they put out the notice too late to save some of us.

While I would love an affiliate (or referral) kick-back program, it might not be as wise. I was reading in a recent IT (or was it counter-terrorist) article that several large companies have lost millions to "affiliate" fraud. Basically, there are ways to ring up the "cha-ching" of what is owed to the affiliate without actually having anyone purchase anything or even go to the web site in question.

62 sets and counting. In addition, a boatload of individual pieces or sets of pieces.

Camoudragon posted a really good idea in another thread about DF t-shirts as a way to advertise.

If we could get a hi-res image (the logo in black and/or white) to print iron-on transfers (available at many craft stores), we could make them ourselves fairly cheaply.

We should be sure to print the URL and put it on the back of the shirt.
