The first game of Empire ran at the weekend. Children were allowed along to participate in this game and by way of giving them something to do there was an academy were they could go and learn different parts of the game and the history of the game world. I was requested to make some merit badges for the children so they had something to collect when they completed various activities. I'm not entirely sure on the details but I would guess these tokens are for crafting items, casting magic, combat training and potion making. I colour washed each sheet before engraving to create this effect.
