Friends, Romans, countrypeople; fellow travelers on Spaceship Earth: I have had the most awesome idea. It occurred to me in the Geneforge series forum, but it demands a wider audience.

Jeff must begin selling coffee mugs that look like Geneforge canisters.

That is all.

Cool idea, but I'm still voting for iForge iPods.

That would indeed be awesome. I'd buy one, and I'm not even that much of a Geneforge fan.

Better than selling "weird meat" from Nethergate.

A simpler publicity gimmick would be just a widget that lets you click on a canister and get the sound effect. It could display a message that you gain a point in some random ability — not necessarily a Geneforge ability.

While we're at it, might as well come up with more gifts. Skribbane pens, Maps/Globes of the respective worlds, shirts, etc. etc. ad nauseum.

I'd buy it. Now, if it was a guy shaper with that voice, then the humor value would triple.

Personally, I want a Roamer that comes with a Top Hat & Cane and does a song & dance.

In the game of chess you can never let your adversary see your pieces.

One day, a man has everything. Then the next day, he blows up a billion dollar space station. And then the next day, he has nothing. Makes you think, huh, Kif?

We don't know who they are or where they come from, but we do know that they stand for everything we don't stand for. Also, I heard they said you guys look like dorks.

If we hit that bullseye, the rest of the dominoes should fall like a house of cards. Checkmate.

You're a brave robot, son. But when I'm in command every mission's a suicide mission.

A stuffed GIFTS. Seriously. I'd buy a whole family.

—Alorael, who can't say the same for GIFTR. Their names are more original, but their cuteness is lacking.

Delicious vlish cuisine.

I'm in favor of that coffee mug and widget idea. I'd also like a shirt.

Edit: I made some Geneforge Awakened and Servile mix desktop wallpaper if anyone wants that. It's nothing spectacular but I believe it is the first of its kind. 1024 x 768 PNG format.

What are you talking about Iffy? There hasn't been a single spoiler in the whole thread. If you're talking about the Xian Skull, it's in A/E3, and is an insignificant, if not hilarious, item.

I admit, a Xian Skull would be awesome. The only skull I have on my desk write now is syrofoamy and doesn't talking

Would it be activated by clicking only, or would it also talk at random moments?

If you want it to be truly authentic, it would only speak at times when speaking would be annoying. Of course, anyone who writes something so intrusive should be dragged out into the street and shot.

Hmmm. Wouldn't be too hard - HTML, XML, and a touch of scripting. Granted, I only know a little HTML, and nothing of the type of scripting that's required, but let's see what I can come up with before I get bored...

On second thought, a "Weird Meat" t-shirt with the graphic blown up big and the text beneath it would be awesome (and incredibly obscure).
