I thought of that, but didn't want people to confuse it with 2010.

This year's one. Exactly the same format as the other years just with a change of colour:



and so you can see the line up:

mbmbmbmbmbmbmbmbmb

I have been considering making this my last year doing Cthanta, however next THIS year is the TENTH ANNIVERSARY, and there's no way I'm not going to be running that! Then I'll pass the baton on. Thoughts for how to make the 10th anniversary icon *sparkle*?? (red hat variety)


Looks a lot like 2016. Maybe a blue die with green hat?


I disagree about the colour being too similar, but what are other people's thoughts? I think I need to lighten bits of it though.


I agree that the die color is different enough. Your challenge will be to have a variety of colors over time that still preserve the die shape. You have already gone through all the primary and secondary colors. Now you are working thru the shades of those colors. This version is a darker orange than 2012 version, but both are in a green hat. Perhaps hold off on this color until next year when the hat will be a different color and allow for a more striking difference than just the shade of the die color. How about a darker or lighter blue, or even a silver (or other metallic) die? [given the number of multicolor die in the hobby, I wonder how a multicolor die would look).

bolded is exactly what I was thinking of

but metallic silver for the Xth edition is also a good one, XX could be gold.

I've played.

I quite like the silver. The stock numbers/letters look wrong in the middle of the dice - takes up too much space, so I've put them in the corners - thoughts on this?

Edit - just gave the bottom left and right sides a small lighten and darken to make them more 3d. I'll show that in the next iteration.

To me it looks grey now. Silver is often made with some gradients, to make the colour more shiny, and not flat.
You don't have to use the stock RPG fonts per sé. A small black X on the bright face of the die might work.

Right, this looks better now!

Lighter, more silver grey, with a gradient. And made the X less blue and more silver-blue.

Sam, I wouldn't put the x there. It doesn't fit with the other badges anymore. If you want to have the tenth anniversary there in some way, add it to the mouseover and name instead. In the end, this is all about the same RPGG Secret Cthanta event if it is the 10th one and I would like to keep the badges looking the same as that has become a customary set by now. The x makes this looks more like some of the challenge/contest/I love PbF this and that badges.

Too bad that the "X" could not fit on the die face.

Like Jonna, I propose leaving out any number for the tenth Secret Cthanta. IMO the row of badges just looks better if it's not interrupted by a badge with an X or 10 tacked on.

The X is on a layer, so easy to remove.

I couldn't get a hand-drawn X to work because the face isn't straight on to the viewer, they are all angled.

So just leave it as silver and make it a one time color. Like the gold when that anniversary shows up.

It would be cool to get the X on the silver die. I suppose since it is a 20 sided die, then the 20th anniversary should be the gold die. But could a 20 fit also? (Thinking long term here).

I really don't want any kind of X on the die or the badge for the reasons I stated. This badge is for Secret Santa equivalent. I don't want to have a badge that looks like a longevity badge, or some kind of contest/challenge badge for that reason.

I'm sorry for being a spoil sport here, but no X.

If we do want a special badge for the 10th Secret Cthanta, is it possible to get a gif badge with a sparkle?

...asking for a friend.
and hoping that the discussion hasn't already covered this

Animated badges are sadly reserved only for very special occasions and I don't think this qualifies really I would be very much fine with any other kind of badge to celebrate the 10 years though, in case folks would like to have one?

Okies, so let's go with a basic silver badge, and I'll make it clear from the Rollover/name it's the 10th exchange.
