A good idea was suggested on IRC. Since it seems we will be stuck in the Game Room, a forum that most of GBS does not know exists, a banner ad might help us get enough of a flood of initial players to keep it going?

It is apparently not very expensive, $7 gets us 1 ad in the rotation for a month, $30 gets us 4 for a month.

A number of people politely offered to buy a title which was nice of them, but, its not that much, so I may even buy the ad myself if we have no volunteers.

I don't really have the technical skills to make a good banner ad though. Does anyone want to try to make a good one? If anyone makes a good banner, i'll pay for it, if no one else wants to.

Edit:

ADarkerPorpoise has volunteered to come in for 4 ads in a month rotation and I will match him, so, we will get the thread some exposure. Anyone else who wants to volunteer to make our ad, by all means, post it in the thread!

I'll buy an ad if one gets made. Assuming, of course, I can figure out how to do so without loving things up. Keep in mind that I have no talent whatsoever in actually making ads and wouldn't know how to advertise a thread that just got started.

Just let me know when ad-buying gets started and I'll buy at least one.

In IRC the idea to make a banner ad came up to get some more awareness of the thread to those who may not necessarily frequent these parts of the forum.

With that said, I've made up some banners to get things started. These are just quick mock ups, feel free to add suggestions or come up with your own and let's get us some more players!

Rivers had a massive following but if I didn't know this was moved I would never have checked here. Part of the whole fun of Rivers for me was checking GBS and seeing 300 new posts of discussion and arguing overnight.

Baitelim seem to have several generations with a philosophy of preparedness. This is something I can latch on to. While nomads seek violence, Baitelites arranged to be the bastion of peace and balance in the land. Beit/Bait means "house" in Urdu. I'd prefer to live with those who prefer solidarity over temporary gain.

Baitel's workin' with what they've got, and thus they prosper. Truly, El blesses them.
