As I'm sure most of you are aware, it's election season.

And with election season comes a positive blizzard of campaign related merchandise. Bumper stickers, mugs, t-shirts, sweatshirts, hats... you name it, a campaign probably sells it online to its supporters.

Which, naturally, got me started thinking about the potential of such items in the Honorverse. Oh, not in the sense of them actually existing, but more in a fanciful, "what if?"

And because awesome t-shirts aren't just limited to campaigns, naturally my overactive imagination ventured out of the political realm.

Do BuWeaps staff have t-shirts that say, "You can't scare me, I work for Sonja Hemphill"?

Do Talbott's embassy staff have mugs that proclaim them "Matsuko's Minions"?

What would a "Pritchart for President" campaign t-shirt look like, anyway?

Do visitor centers on Sphinx sell plush treecats, and how many youngsters go home with one riding their shoulder?

If you could design your own in-universe Honorverse merch, what would it be?

Go nuts!

Consult MoH for what can happen to Treecat plush toys.

Also What is the RMNA-SI sports team mascot.

Ok... then I'm stealing your own signature thing since you didn't suggest it Rose.


T-shirts, pins, and perhaps scarves for senior administrators working for President Pritchart, all of which state "I serve at the pleasure of President Pritchart." :lol:


And Grayson baseball games.... they make mockeries of all Earth sport finals put together. :o

It just wouldn't be right if I didn't turn my favorite bumper stickers into t-shirts...

On the front...
What is a warrior treecat's motto?


On the back...
The thrill of victory. And the agony of the feet.


Pokermind turned it into a bumper sticker for us. It would look great on a t-shirt.

I do have an Old Tillman T-Shirt (acquired at Libertycon in 2015) that would probably be available after the brewery tour on Sphinx.

As for in-character, Tourville's crew would have to have something with a cigar motif. I think Theisman's functionaries would borrow from today's Canadians and have the motto "We Stand on Guard" (which come to think of it would work for almost any of the GA).

Keep them coming.
