GM Badges

This page added to make it easy to paste and copy various badges to other wiki pages. The table is from Stuart Robertson’s blog post GM Merit Badges. The icons themselves are in turn based on Lorc’s 700+ RPG icons free for use available under a Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 Unported License.
