Holiday Promotions and Child's Play

The Holiday season is in full swing, and everybody is out looking for deals. The days after Thanksgiving have become huge shopping days, so I decided to hop on the bandwagon. I've been tossing some ideas around for awhile now, but I finally settled on what to do. Here are the two promotions I will be running in my shop during the holiday season:

Go to CandyCorn Studios

Black Friday/Cyber Monday Free Shipping Promotion:
There will be FREE SHIPPING on all purchases placed from Friday, Nov. 28th through Monday, Dec. 1st. All! That means International AND Domestic. This is a great time to get a gift for your gamer friend without paying anything extra for shipping.

December Charity Promotion:

I finally decided what my annual charity project is going to be! Yay! Every year I like to do something to help out a charity. This year I'm going to donate money from each of my sales on Etsy. For every item sold during the month of December, $1 of the proceeds will go to the Child's Play charity. I think it's appropriate since much of my shop is gaming-oriented!

Do you con?

On November 28th & 29th (Black Friday and Saturday for you retail minded people), representatives from ConNooga will be at both DiceHead Games & Comics locations garnering support and taking registrations for our upcoming convention. Now would be the best time to get your registration in before we cut off pre-reg and you have to pay more money at the door.

Image Rule modification

It was pointed out (offline) to me that the number of images is not so much a problem as the size of the images. Therefore the image rule for this community has been amended to the following:

If you post images that total greater than 500x500 pixels, place them behind a cut. It's fine to give us a few images for a preview before the cut, but don't post a string of 15 huge images without cutting it. Thumbnail if necessary. Not everyone wants that to pop up on their friends page.

Please adjust posting behavior accordingly. Thanks!

Want a free game? Of course you do!!!

Dice Jewelry

As promised in the comments of an earlier post, here's a link to the shop where I sell my dice jewelry. There's all kinds of other pieces there, and I have less than half of my jewelry actively listed on the site. (Taking all those pictures is really time consuming!) But hey, at least a good chunk of it is out there, and I'm always open to requests.

Hello there.

[Talisman Studios] Shaintar Equipment Cards 1-Armor

One of the great things about Shaintar is how truly visual it is, and this first set of Equipment Cards for the setting is a prime example of that. Jason Engle and Alayna Lemmer have teamed up to bring Sean Patrick Fannon's ideas to life, giving you a full set of every kind of armor that exists in Shaintar to show players what they are wearing... or what they are facing. Enhancing the theater of the mind, these cards bring to life the images of warriors clashing on the field of battle, dressed in their gear of war, representing the nations and the causes they serve.

With printable backings for both notes or attractive "deck" backings, you have the power to print and create these cards and use them any way you wish. For example, how wonderful would it be for a player to discover an enchanted suit of Korindian Studded mail (resplendent with the embedded seashells), and you can hand him an illustrated card with all the appropriate notes on it?

Look to the rest of the Talisman Studios products to find other sets of cards that can enhance your gameplay - after all, Talisman is, first and foremost, an art studio with a gaming addiction. Enjoy!

Product contains: an 8 page full-color, high resolution PDF with 27 armor item cards, and three sheets of differening card backs for you to print out and use.
