The badges have been printed and look like this:

The spoiler below is a record of previous versions of the OP.
Greetings one and all! I have now completed the first versions of the PAX Prime Forum badge, and here they be:


Commentary: This is a drastic change from the original as I though considering this is the First Edition of the PAX Community RPG it should bear a striking resemblance to the original D&D box, only in blue as Prime's unofficial colouring is a deep blue.


Commentary: The back has been redesigned to respond to the comments made concerning the lack of space for forum names. The scrolls in this version were actually drawn by hand by me :)

Let me know what you think.

For more information about the forum badge, its history and how to get your hands on one, go to the PAX Wiki here:

The spoiler below shows how the badge was developed, but offers no current information.

After much deliberation the RPG character sheet was chosen. Over the coming weeks a final version of this forum badge will be worked on with iterations displayed on this thread as it develops. Thank you all for participating in making the forum badge something we as a community have created.

For more information about the forum badge, its history and how to get your hands on one, go to the PAX Wiki here:

The spoiler below is of the previous version of this post that describes how the badge theme was selected and is left here for historical purposes.

Here they are, the 3 draft versions of the RPG character sheet, the Euro board game and the MMO item themes. Please review and vote by placing them in order of preference. The winner with the highest ranked votes will be the theme adopted for the forum badge.

1) RPG Character sheet:



2) Euro board game:



3) MMO item:



Spoiler below reveals previous announcement of forum badge theme and voting, none of which is now relevant.

I just realised that PAX Prime is a lot closer than I thought thanks to PAX East being so late this year. With this in mind I thought I'd better open this thread up for PAX Prime 2014 forum badge. This time around I really want to get the community involved with its design, as I feel that sometimes I settle on a theme without really going through my thought processes with everyone on the forums. So here I am, attempting to do just that.

So before I do any work on the badge itself I had a selection of ideas of possible themes. They run something like this:

1) Magic the Gathering - the front and rear of the cards are based on an MtG card where only those listed on the back can use it as a card during an MtG game and it's stupidly overpowered.
2) Euro Tabletop game box - Overly complicated Kickstarted Euro board game box with rules that no one could possibly fathom. The people listed would be its 'backers'.
3) Washington State Permit - A very formal looking form that declares all those listed are permitted to play games at the WSCC during PAX Prime without prejudice.
4) RPG Character sheet - Full stats of forum member that will reveal that are the best character ever made in the history of RPGs.
5) MMO item - The forum badge will be classed as a Legendary Item that would be 'bound' to the owner as well as all those listed on the back.

Let me know the top 3 that catch your eye and I'll do mock ups of all three.

    Thank you all for the rapid feedback on this. I have been taking the votes and am seeing a trend, but won't reveal it until I have seen more votes come in. This is to prevent people skewing the results to favour what is becoming the most popular.
