Inked Adventures Dry-Erase Counters

Inked Adventures Dry-Erase Counters in packet

Inked Adventures Dry Erase Counters are now in our Etsy store.

These are hand made 1-inch diameter laminate card topped counters, or tokens, with a black rubberised backing.   Words, symbols or drawings can be added on the easy-wipe surface with a dry-erase marker (white-board marker pen) to represent PCs, monsters, scenery, life-tokens, bonus and condition markers or even as coins.  The border line-art illustration was designed in pen by Billiam Babble.

15 counters per pack. Please read the product page description before purchasing.

If it says "sold out", we're almost certainly making more and will be restocking soon. :)

Loughborough Comic-Con 2017

This is a quick post to thank all those who attended Loughborough Comic-Con 2017 last Sunday, chatted and bought from me, and all the friends and followers on social networks who wished me luck in my first solo-journey into the world of "the real" (I was a little nervous!).  Before now, my stores have been firmly of the web-based kind, but I have been understudying Con' trading with All Rolled Up UK team, who have taught me much in short space of time.  It was a really great experience and I hardly had time to go around around the Con myself, but, from corner of the eye glimpses, it seems to have been quite a hit with the locals.  Loughborough Comic Con was organised by Creed Conventions.

I totally that recommend that you check out the #loughboroughcomiccon tag on Instagram to get a sense of the variety of displays, celebrities, cosplayers and traders.  (Also on IG: a scavenging Jawa at my stall, deplorable creatures!)   Loughborough Echo article here.

Con News

In an act of very last minute decision making, Inked Adventures will be having a stall at the lesser known, but vibrant, Loughborough Comic-Con, since it is on my very own doorstep, tomorrow, Sunday 22nd October.  I'll mainly be selling the Map & Dice Playing Cards, laminated flagstone tiles, some dice trays and a selection of things normally only seen on my Etsy store. If, by freaky co-incidence, you are there, be gentle with me, because it's the first time running being on a stall on my own. ;)

Unfortunately, I have yet to find an economic way to short print-run colour dungeon sections and tiles, with the exception of the Dungeon Cut-Ups Pocket Edition, so there will be no dungeon scenery on the stall, just little packets of cool things. I'm still designing and selling colour dungeon sections as printable PDFs through DriveThruRPG, RPGNow and other sites.

My friends at the All Rolled Up company will be taking a stack of the Inked Adventures Map & Dice Playing Cards to Essen Spiel '17 (26th-29th October 2017).  I worry about my little babies being swamped in one of the mightiest gaming conventions in Europe. ;)  All Rolled Up stock all manner of hand-made tabletop accessories, including the award winning ARU wallets/game-wraps and neoprene dice trays (some of which sport my art), so it's always an honour knowing that my cards are amongst such good quality stock.

Thanks for reading. Happy Adventuring!
