There's a few games out there with references to me based on things ranging from having done balance testing for the company, suggesting the likely source of a really annoying bug, lore snippets I wrote up, or just being a generally useful forum member. Lots of companies show thanks for free work done on their behalf without request for compensation with in-game references (even if sometimes they're subtle enough most people never notice them, the intended person usually always does.)


Yeah, I've ended up with my name in the manual for a few card games that I playtested. Even something as simple as that is great.


And really, the shout-out to the forum members is great and pretty much (the serious part of) what I was asking for. And I like to think that everyone with over 942 comments has a comment in the code with our names.

I wonder how he came up with over 942... :)

I hope I'll get at least some subtle reference in the game to the other avatar (meaning me).

And a careful observer will note that I said "our names". :)

Random fan art is awesome... I mean, we posted the tri-sword pic, remember?

As a representative of the benevolent Taurog I think this is completely off! He gives out piety like no-one else and even has the courtesy to give you cold hard items which is a lot more palpable than "Yeah yeah, I have blessed you. Now get going".

Taurog clearly needs a better PR department. Sure he craves blood and wizard guts, but so does Dracul. The only differnce is that Taurog only wants the guts of your enemies, and lets be frank that goblin genocide is something you were gonna pull off anyhow.

And Taurog will stay happy even if you decide to just pick up a sword and get going, he doesn't ask you to go through rigorous rites and paperwork to convert.


Damn my compulsion issues! Anyhow here is something I scribbled up in 10-15 minutes. I bring you "The Benevolent Taurog".

Okay, here's my attempt at The Superduper Meat Man. I can't seem to shade.

The easy way to do it would be to fix a source of light in one of the image corners, and then darken all the areas opposit it. My shading is far from perfect as well, I have simply darkened some areas to show they're further back than others. :)

Thanks for the tips. I might do a packmaster fan art pic.
