Rafferty Redux  
Way back when doing Part 7 of Book 1, "Pots and Pans," I created a badging system for family organized factory workers known collectively as Sooners, specifically the Raffertys, Mare and her lot. I made a post about this badge–which takes the form of a head kerchief–in this journal, explaining the rudimentary code and inspiration for it.

Here's my original design:



Simple, to the point, perfect for my needs. Until I decided to actually produce this sucker as a full size kerchief as part of my pre-order packages. Then I went to town:



You can click here for a much larger view of this design.



As I am using a process that allows it, I'm offering a choice of the three color variations, beyond Family Yellow seen above, there will Auxiliary Red and Boss White, seen below.





These will be 22 inches by 22 inches each, printed one-sided on organic cotton sateen with finished edges.

Gah.

Between these and the dice, I am feeling regret at being cheap and ordering one of the simple packages.
Deep, deep regret.

Cheap? Not at all! If a quarter of the regular weekly Dicebox readers pre-orderd, then the print-run would be paid for. So my heartfelt thanks!

That said, I am going to offer a chance to upgrade pre-order packages in the next week or so for any who are so inclined to do so.

Argh, that's just way too much temptation right there! :S

So in the Dicebox universe, does each have an RFID chip in it to identify the owner? This could be used as basic security for job sites and a way to quickly make honorary Raffertys. Or does each individual have a couple of chips implanted in their bodies for that sort of thing?

Chipping is a delicate issue in regards to civil rights and privacy acts. I'll be delving into that this book.

Basically a Boss is responsible for anyone wearing the badge. It ain't a good thing for anyone to wear it without permission.
