Help us design an awesome badge for the Dtoid community!

The winning design will earn an exclusive Legendary Dtoider badge

Have you ever thought to yourself, "Self, I sure do wish I could wear my love for Destructoid on my sleeve"? Well soon, that might be a reality!

Honored is a cool new system that tracks your "achievements" across multiple platforms, games, and more, and allows you to bring those virtual achievements into the real world by manufacturing physical, embroidered badges that its members can purchase. Pretty neat!

So how does this affect you? Well, we think being a Dtoider is a pretty damn awesome achievement, so why not show it off? The Honored team is currently in the midst of an Indiegogo campaign, and the moment we found out about it we partnered up. As one of the perks, Dtoiders will be eligible for four Honored badges, and we need your help designing one!

Of the four badges Destructoid will be designing -- Community (for anyone with a Dtoid account), Huge (for Huge members), Staff (for people we let post on the front page), and Legendary (exceptional Dtoiders hand-picked by the staff) -- we're asking you to help create our Community one. The image in the attached gallery should serve as your template (the PSD can be found here), but other than the basic form you can let your mind go wild!

Here are the design guidelines for the badges:

  • Each badge type has an assigned shape. In the case of these community ones, they would be a "shield". (See above for basic form.)
  • The designs are limited to 9 different colors, due to logistics in the process of stitching the embroidered counterparts. So please keep your designs within the limit!
  • We don't have an explicit minimum thickness of lines, but common sense needs to be used that any given line needs to be easily stitched with thread and seen normally on a 3.5 in sized badge

If you think you've got the creative touch and can work within those guidelines, get to work on designing the official Destructoid Community badge! The winner's name will appear alongside the badge on the Honored platform for all the world to see, as well as being featured prominently on Destructoid. You have until next Friday, November 29 to submit your design, and we'll accept submissions from anyone in the world. Once you've got your submission ready, just paste a link to it in the comments below. (And remember: the Community badge uses the shield template found in the gallery!)

After all the submissions are in, the Dtoid staff will judge them and award the winner with his or her very own, very exclusive Legendary Dtoider badge. (The Honored team hopes to have physical badges available early in 2014, depending on their Indiegogo outcome.) Have fun!

The ultimate waifu has been decided scientifically. There is no need to participate in the waifu wars any longer. (I won't tell you who it is until I make my own post of course)

I'm starting to get really excited for the approach of the new FE games! I'm going to revisit Awakening. Are any of the DLCs worth it at all? (AKA what's the deal with the Future Past DLC?)

There's gonna be enough copies of both Fire Emblem: Birthright and Fire Emblem: Conquest that I shouldn't really feel the need to preorder them at Best Buy, right? I want to get both versions (I buy physical only) and I'm worried they won't have enough.
