Badges Detected!

Probably no one noticed, but I started including "subject icons" at the beginning of many posts. For a while now, I've been thinking I ought to use more pictures in my posts, but I didn't really want to go swipe a random picture from somewhere, just for the sake of illustration. Plus, I worry about wasting image space, if I were to upload my own images. So, I've been pretty sparsely illustrated.

Then I thought: "Maybe I should come up with subject icons, so that when I do a post about magic, for example, I can use the Magic icon."

Then I realized: Duh, I *did* come up with a bunch of icons, back when several of us were on a kick about making "merit badges" for RPGs. I specifically focused on "exception badges" that showed which part of the rules you typically change or eliminate, and "genre badges" for campaign type. And those actually make pretty good subject icons, and they're all uploaded already, so... why not use them?

I do keep forgetting to use them, like on the previous two posts about XP for magic items. But I went back and added an XP badge to those two (Bet you didn't think I'd have a badge for XP...) I'll try to be more thorough in the future.

  1. I noticed it when I was reading your recent articles on demons. They're a nice touch -- informative, decorative, and original, and yet not obtrusive.
