Musing and articles from Peter Amthor. Usually of a role playing game influence but I do drift into other directions occasionally. You can also find me on twitter at @TrulyRural or on MeWe where I simply go by Peter Amthor as well. Comments and constructive criticism welcome.
You see those high fashion models
walking the runway in their high cost elegant clothing that you
always wanted but can't afford. But now you can. Today's most sought
after designs at an economy level and you can't tell the difference
(yes actually you can). Your friend will think you spent your last
three paychecks on one outfit (no they won't) when you come out
dressed in our replicas. All the quality and luxury (not even close)
is now available to everyone.
The largest low cost clothing outlet
stores in the nation. Delusions of Grandeur will sell you a knock off
designer outfit that won't bust your savings... and probably won't
last two spins through the wash. They are shameless in their
advertising, most of it false or at least misleading, and promotion.
Any high fashion design that hits the
marketplace they will have a knock off at 25% of the cost on their
racks within a week. Constant clearance sales going on moving out
stuff that went out of style just last month. Plus taglines like “Be
Somebody”, “Look Your Best” and “Be Famous” splattered all
over the place.
Basic Sponsorship package.
of Grandeur will accept just about any application for sponsorship.
Ready to shake your hand and 'welcome you aboard' just as long as you
slap their logo some where on your body.
The sponsor is required to wear DoG
logo shirt or hat. The design is very prominent and can be picked up
by the slave AI programs scanning the endless television channels and
social media networks all day long. If it is caught on television in
any fashion, good or bad, the amount of time is recorded. On social
media the amount of hit or views a person receives is recorded. The
data is then sent back to the DoG home office.
They receive a bonus of 1eb for each
time they appear on television with the logo visible. With an
additional 1eb for every minute they are on. For social media network
they receive 1eb per 30k views. There is a maximum of 20eb payed out
They also receive a discount card for
the Delusions of Grandeur stores that gives them 10% off.
Advanced Sponsorship package.
Achieved once they have collected 150eb
The logo can now be on any article of
clothing as long as it is prominently displayed. Just ask and they
will likely provide you with whatever you want within a day or two.
They also receives the same payout
based on television appearances/viewers but the maximum per month is
raised to 60eb.
Now they receive a package in the mail
once a month with a couple of random articles of clothing with the
logo on them. Some it new, some appears to be from the clearance
isle. It's always a mixed bag really.
Levels beyond this are all privately
Joshua Duece, who has appeared in many
a low quality forgettable reality show over the last five years,
always seems to be wearing DoG clothing. On set for another series,
while out eating or even when he's selling his backlog of clothing
out of the back of his van at a street market. He apparently gets
sent multiple packages a month and has even been in a commercial or
