Designer Depot (Shirt Version)
Monday, 22 December 2008

Ever wanted to leave your mark on a persistent game world? You walk around the game world and say "Hey, I did that!" Now is your chance! Now, now... this event is for the guilds. So, if you're not in one, band up with a couple of guildless adventure because this sure is worth it!


You have less than 24 hours to come up with ideas for a design for your own guild shirt! Awesome huh? The costs for each shirt will depend on the number of colors of your design. Here are the mechanics:

  1. Fabric: 800 gold
  2. Base shirt color: 500 gold
  3. Additional colors: If you want to add more colors, the cost goes up exponentially:
    • 1st color: 1000 gold
    • 2nd color: 2000 gold
    • 3rd color: 4000 gold
    • 4th color: 8000 gold
    • ... You get the idea
  4. Design: 1500 gold (if you're going for a more elaborate design)
  5. Labor Cost: 250 gold
  6. Vat: 10%

This cost is per shirt. If your guild has 200 players, and all of them wants a shirt, they have to pony up the money.


Here's a picture to show what exactly we mean by colors and designs. Please note however, that for the actual guild shirts, we will only be using one shirt style, and that is a short-sleeved, round neck, basic length tee like the one in the first picture below.

It can get pretty complicated so here's a scenario for you guys:


Let's say "The Tour Bus" guild, which has 10 members, wants to make a guild shirt with a flaming school bus on it, the price breakdown would be:

  • Fabric: 800 gold
  • Base shirt color: 500 gold (Red)
  • 3 additional colors: 1ooo + 2000 + 4000 = 7000 gold (Orange, Yellow and Black)
  • Design: 1500 gold
  • Labor Cost: 250 gold
  • Gross Cost: 10,050 gold
  • VAT: 1005 gold
  • Cost per shirt: 11,055 gold
  • Total cost for the guild: 11,055 x 10 = 110,550

Here's a simpler scenario wherein you don't use a design:

  • Fabric: 800 gold
  • Base shirt color: 500 gold (Blue)
  • 2 additional colors: 1000 + 2000 = 3000 gold (Black, White)
  • Labor Cost: 250 gold
  • Gross Cost: 4,550 gold
  • VAT: 455 gold
  • Cost per shirt: 5,005 gold
  • Total cost for the guild: 5,005 x 10 = 50,050

Guild leaders/representatives and will be responsible for collecting payments from members. GMs will start collecting from them on 9PM EST on Dec. 22, '08.


Wait for an upcoming announcement regarding the submission of designs per guild. Alright, guilds, pool your creative juices together and start crankin'!
