Very lovely this week. Enjoyed it, related to it as usual. Money can enflame many a temper around the gaming table indeed.
I'm terrible with mine, I never go for the 'broke' character and don't read the books for a hobby so I never know what to buy, thus I usually don't buy much of anything. (And even what I do my husband rolls his eyes at... sorry I think leather is hotter than chainmail so I rarely buy chainmail ) Having a char with minimal gear is nice though when someone needs to be res'd. My funds have often been used to bring life back to someone who woke up the dragon.
Not sure what it should have on it, but we should get one.

Why not a "line" of LD t-shirts? You could have Players/Characters, group pics, etc...

I've always intended to sell out...
I've always planned to do Loaded Dice merch, but I've planned to wait until our readership/demand grows.
I've figured on maybe individual characters or somesuch, but it'd be nice to know what people would like to have.

As several people may already know... I usually eschew money in favour of 'interesting items'... for a few reasons...
Items are usually easier to carry around than several sacks of gold. Jewellery and gemstones especially... and I personally like shiny gemstones...
Some could be tied to quests, if they decide to search out the item's origin...
Without an Identify Magic scroll or similarly prepared spellcaster, they could be considered puzzles to solve to figure out how they work... and I like giving small hints. Plus... an 'interesting item' doesn't have to be magical.
And if misuse of one of the 'more-interesting items' results in hazards to players that may or may not include death... that can't possibly be my fault, can it?
Just my own thoughts hehe
Oh, on another note, if players are smart and really want the moneys, and one of their characters has good communication skills... chances are they just maybe could find an avid collector for their 'interesting item' that would be happy to reimburse them for adding to their collection...
