I actually don't have anything specifically in mind... but people have suggested I 'sell merchandise' before and other sites seem to do the same, often being the main way the creators support themselves.
I suppose I'd do T-shirts or something... though I'd have to ask the members what they think I should do rather than coming up with ideas myself, since they'll be the ones buying it!

Well for my 2 cents if you're interested.....

I could buy a t-shirt or other merch from you which is humerous in a geeky/RPG way, or displays an "in joke" or something else that I find humour/nostalgia in. I know you are a fan of old school rpgs and your games poke fun at them quite a bit so you might be quite good at that sort of design.

basic examples:

I don't see myself buying "fighunter" or "Mardek" merch. I don't think those brands are strong enough yet for me to wear them (Though i could buy a "Yalort" t-shirt despite that). However, I would imagine that a lot of people here would feel differantly to me and would infact prefer merchandise which has characters or themes from your mythology, or even just "MARDEK" on a shirt.

Anyway, that's just my opinion.

crap, my examples went haywire there, sorry.

I'm not going to try again incase i get it wrong. Is there any way of editing or deleting a post?

I myself would actually want a black shirt with the Eye of YALORT on it, and have done for years... so I'll definitely have THAT as my first item on the list of things I make because I feel it'd be popular.
I wouldn't ever buy T-shirts with the name of a website or Flash game on them though and can't see how anyone else would want to, but I suppose that's largely because I never wore non-plain T-shirts anyway just because I generally disliked images or words in general on them... hmm. But, uh, it'd be worth a try to at least have them available in the online shop for no cost to me if anyone wants to buy them...

Amusing things on shirts are something that I see most webcomics do (usually the shirt doesn't even have anything to do with the comic itself...), and since MARDEK's known for that, I'm sure it'd work well because the site would attract the sorts of people interested in such things!
I wonder whether I should ask people whether they'd want any lines from MARDEK on shirts, or whether I should just make more things up... Anyway, I'll start an article about this later today and ask for more feedback then.
