Swag for attendees and speakers

Just for fun, we designed badges, pins, t-shirts, and socks for all attendees, along with special t-shirts and challenge coins for speakers. We got to make roguelike fan merchandise!

Badges (and nail art) designed by Danielle Baskin.

Two small metal pins: a pixelly potion bottle and a Nethack treasure zoo
Pixelly potion pin designed by Amanda Glosson, and Nethack treasure zoo pin designed by Noah Swartz.

Speaker t-shirt, attendee t-shirt, and socks on a table
Speaker t-shirt designed by Allison Hughes (an audience listening to a speaker), attendee t-shirt designed by Amanda Glosson (with pixelly dungeon creatures and items), and @ symbol socks designed by Allison Hughes. If you want to make custom socks, Sock Fancy does a great job.

Front and back of challenge coin for speakers
Challenge coin for speakers (a wizard with a wand and spellbook, surrounded by potions), designed by Allison Hughes. We thought it'd be nice to give speakers a little memento they can display.


We had a table with an altar, potions, unidentified scrolls, oil lamps, comestibles, bones, a candlelabrum with candles, a silver bell, a crystal ball, lizards, leather armor, a wooden flute, amulets, rings, spellbooks, a mirror, tins, a tin opener, and other items from Nethack.

We put up posters with quotes and monsters from Nethack.

"You are lucky! Full moon tonight." and the warning you get at the gate of Gehennom. There really was a full moon that night. (Photo by Matt Boyd.)
