It's sad to see Pier described as "Dutch warrior-pirate" on the PC gamer website (and many others)... He wasn't Dutch and probably would be insulted if he heard you say it (never mind the bloody consequences).

It's also sad that Fryslân became part of the Netherlands in 1795 to begin with, but calling Pier Dutch is adding insult to injury, haha...

Nice to see we´re mentioned as 2nd out of an enormous list! Most of the readers probably read the first few and never make it to the end.

Hi All,

Just wondering if you've heard from Ghostwriter.com

Sorry, things have been a bit strained recently...???

Yes, I've had a meeting with them and we've got a very good picture of how they are able to help us write the CotD Book version. We're now also talking to different publishers and are getting some good responses. Hopefully we'll be able to offer you guys a second product :D

Could have said thanks for the heads-up personally Remco, but as long as it's going OK that's the main thing

Of course, thanks for bringing it up, Jess!

We're currently speaking with 3 different publishers to find the best writer for the book. It looks like this could actually happen :-)

I am still working on transmedia stroytelling when it dawned on me - re-enactment!

Without assuming anything, I was wondering if you have thought of a live re-enactment battle?

Low-cost High appeal!

Attract the local/national news and you should be quids in!

Doesn't sound like a bad idea :) hehe

I'd go... Maybe even swing a sword or two myself :)

The only thing I'm aware of is that the novels can be pre-ordered. Check the Store button above. I'm sure they'll add some more stuff soon enough.

We're still loving the T-shirts and Poster that were designed for Kickstarter, but most of the online shops have pretty crappy quality. Do you guys order shirts online, and if so, which shop do you like best?

I wouldn't mind some tshirts, but my major issue with them is most of the time they are designed to be promotional items rather then a good design on a garment. So a few verities would be nice in the store. :P

At least it isn't just some "OMG COTD" shirt, the design was pretty good as a shirt on its own. Still no suggestions on where you like to buy yours though, what would you guys recommend?

There are several dedicated game shirt shops out there... But I've got no experience with any of them :) As for actual shops out there, as in the real world: I'm afraid of social interaction. And open spaces. And germs. I'd like to order mine online :P

As for the quality and where to have them made... I've had a couple of shirts made in the past, but not all were of good quality. You should put some time and effort into finding a proper shirt business; I'd hate to lose the CotD print after 1 or 2 or even 100 washes :)

Exactly, I think a lot of people buy from Threadless, but they don't make custom desings on demand. There are about 3 or 4 other big players out there, all with pricepoints from around $18 to $25 per shirt. However, it would only mean about $2 per shirt as a share for Triangle. Then again, we would have people walking around with a huge CotD billboard ;-)

It just depends on what the goal is exactly... Profit or promotion...

A $25 shirt is nice for promotion, a $37,50 shirt is probably only interesting for real fans after they've played the game, haha... I wouldn't go too expensive (without losing sight of quality). Because, to be honest, shirts will probably not be the biggest cashcow in this project :)

You're probably right. We should not expect thousands of people to walk around with Pier shirts (would be cool though).

Hey, I'd buy one. Or more, if there are multiple interesting designs :) hehe

You could maybe partner with Fangamer or something?
