Monster Hunter International Patch Contest II: The Patchening!

It is that time again! Two years ago I held a create your own Monster Hunter International team patch contest, and the winning teams got official cameos in Monster Hunter Vendetta, and became official parts of the MH universe.

The fan winner from last time was Utah County, and the author’s pick was the Atomic Nerds.

Check out the awesomeness from the first Monster Hunter International Patch Contest here:  http://larrycorreia.wordpress.com/2009/07/15/monster-hunter-international-patch-contest/

I didn’t do one last year, because if you’ve read Monster Hunter Alpha, then you know that it was more limited in scope, and there weren’t any other teams introduced. However, right now I’m working on Monster Hunter Legion, where once again there will be many MHI teams present, but there will also be rival companies from around the world.

The CONTEST:  Create your own MHI or rival Monster Hunting company patch, using whatever yoru creative abilities are, and then send it to me at monsterhunter45@hotmail.com .  The contest will run for the entire month of September.

The RULES: Unlike last time, the patch doesn’t have to be in subdued colors (since most of you ignored that anyway). If it is an MHI team, then it needs to say MHI or Monster Hunter International somewhere on it and 1895 for the founding year.  These do not need to be in English if you are taking it out of the country. 

If your unit is non-MHI, then feel free to do whatever you want.  MHL opens at an international conference of monster hunting professionals, and there are representatives from all over the world, governmental or private. Have fun with it.

I don’t care if you do it with fancy computer programs or color it in crayon, but for me to post it, it will need to be a Jpeg.

Make sure you include what town/region your patch represents in the title, because that’s what they will be known as in the voting.

Once the contest is over, we will be holding a vote here on Monster Hunter Nation to find the fan favorite. The winner (s)* will appear in Monster Hunter Legion. There will be as many winners as I personally feel like.

*since I’m doing this for fun, and I’m the author, I can basically do whatever I want. So if ya’ll pick something horrible, that there is simply no way I can fit it into the book, I retain veto power. But I trust you guys… Mostly…  Usually… If for example, you put your team in a region that already has an established team, then I may need to tweak your location.

Entries are due the last day of September.

The PRIZE:  The winner’s team will get a mention in MHL, and I will send you an autographed copy of MHL when it comes out.  

Last time I made up a batch of Utah County patches. I made way too many of them, and ended up giving most away at book signings, so I can’t promise that I will manufacture the winning patch this time.

However,  if you are particularly proud of your patch, and want to make one for yourself, I’ll gladly point you toward my friend Hopie, who specializes in doing small runs of custom patches. She’s done a few for other members of the Monster Hunter Nation that look awesome.  Her contact info is below.

Crooked Stitch Creations, Custom Embroidery
Hopie Lopez-Boyett, Head Thread Pusher
You can find my fan page on Facebook listed as Crooked Stitch Creations
<https://www.facebook.com/pages/Crooked-Stitch-Creations/141978565824728>
or go directly to my ETSY shop <http://www.etsy.com/shop/DancingBearUS> .
Email any questions to DancingBearUS@gmail.com

If you do have Hopie make a patch for you, I want pictures!

I will post the entries here into this blog post as often as possible.

And please, spread the word! Tell your friends, post this to your blog, bathroom graffiti, whatever. We had around 50 entries last time, and that was with only one book out.  I want this to be an awesome patch contest.

How about State-level government agencies… that are part of public sector unions? The Supernatural Extermination and Intervention Union. SEIU!

Guest
3 years 11 months ago

I really LIKE the idea of exterminating SEIU.

Or did I misunderstand? Heh.

Guest
Wesley
3 years 10 months ago

Well… that’s not exactly what I was thinking. I was imagining something more like a monster regulating bureaucracy filled with public sector union members that’s always taking coffee breaks or taking two or three union members to do the work of one private sector hunter. Or maybe having a group of union hunters bussed into a monster battle so they could hold signs and protest? I just thought calling them SEIU would be appropriate. Heh. They could even have purple uniforms. ;)

Which Cannon team? The one from the fingerlakes is rupert_hawk541@yahoo.com. Please mention MHI in subject to make sure it doesn’t get thrown out.

Guest
James

“Cannon” = “official as declared by the author/creator of a work of fiction.”

So in this case a list of the teams Larry Correia says are ‘real’ monster hunting teams.

Guest
Scott Deering

This is a rough list based on what is in the novels (Larry would
have to verify that these are correct:

Team Haven/Sam Haven (Dec.)/Denver, Colorado
Team VanZant/VanZant/?

I just received a dozen of our custom MHI Team patches from Crooked Stitch Creations. They look AWESOME! Hopie does great work, is fast, and is a pleasure to work with. The Head Thread Pusher even added hook Velcro to the backs of the patches so they can be swapped between bags and jackets. If you want to turn your design into a patch, I highly recommend contacting Hopie – she loves doing MHI work!

Guest
3 years 10 months ago

I have all ready talked to her about getting my patch made. Bullmen ho.

Guest
3 years 10 months ago

I’m guessing Monster Hunter Interplanetary’s motto is “Have Space Suit, Will Travel”?

Guest
3 years 10 months ago

Nope that’s a book by Heinlein. But I like “We deal, in lasers.”.

Guest
3 years 10 months ago

Heinlein’s book mentioned Tombaugh Station. I figured that’s where the name came from.

Guest
AAron
3 years 10 months ago

Yes, the Tombaugh Station patch was for “Have Spacesuit, Will Travel”, with 1958 being the year it was published.

Guest
Joe in PNG
3 years 10 months ago

Of course, with Papua New Guinea being a rough and rugged land, with an isolated population and a lot of monsters, I also have to include…

-The Royal Australian Anti Supernatural Creature Force- who do a lot up in PNG, and in recient years, with all of the Chinese business interest moving in…

-The People’s Liberation Army Special Unearthly Operations Forces- the PRC’s very own. I think that even Agent Franks would find them a bit too rough for even him.

Is there a mailing address I can send them to? I have a couple of ideas that I really like but no way of doing them other than by hand. I suppose I could draw them and take a picture so you’d have a jpeg, but it wouldn’t be really reproducible.

Guest
peavybob

you could draw the picture and then scan it with a printer/scanner. then touch it up with picture-editing software if you have any.

If it makes you feel better, I had to do mine with paintbrush and powerpoint.

Where’d the ZAI patch designs come from? The second one especially looks like it came straight from the USN. If you guys like knives, guns, zombies and other tactical type stuff, check out the USN, the Usual Suspect Network (usualsuspect.net). We have had our own zombie preparedness group for years. Overall it’s mostly about knives but there’s discussion about guns and shooting, good cigars, all sorts of tactical equipment…… We have members who sell all kinds of high quality stuff, lots of knifemakers, and just plain lots of good people.
Oh Larry, you might want to, for MHI, check out Strider knives and RMJ forge axes. For sharp stuff as back-up to the guns, they’re two of the best companies in the world. And I can gauruntee that Strider would want to exhibit at a Worldwide Hunter’s event.

Guest
3 years 10 months ago

The ZAI patch came from my mind. We are about preparedness and education, and when needed, turning the walking dead’s heads into canoes. I will check out your site. We have a facebook site and a wordpress site. Just click on us.

Guest
CPTP
3 years 9 months ago

Thought I’d add some details for my patch submissions in time for voting…

MHI – Las Vegas Gremlins. Gremlins (aka: electro-monkeys) are always
messing up servers and electronics which would cause HUGE problems of
multi-billion dollar hotels with banks of servers controlling everything
from security to keeping the ‘all you can eat’ buffet stocked. While not as
action packed as some of the other postings you can’t beat the nightlife.

ACES unit patch. American Cryptid Elimination Services. Motto “Aces
wild”. A competitor for the American market this company is MHI’s number one
contender (think Triple Canopy, EODT, or DynCorp in relation to Blackwater).
Begrudgingly admitted by the MHI personnel as having “some pretty good
folks”. They have had some good showings and put forth a professional image

Cerberus Consulting. Foreign (I’m thinking British. Think Aegis)
consulting company. Not a bad company to work for, relatively big business
throughout Europe. HQ’d out of London but mostly deals with mainland Europe,
Balkans and other locales dictated by contract. Professional, good at what
they do, but very contract oriented, as in ‘If it’s not in the contract we
can’t do it’ mentality (looking at you KBR!).

Guest

Man, there are a lot of great designs in this group. I gotta go with the Day by Day patch as I am a huge fan of Sam. For great graphics though the Korea patch is amazing, would like to know the translation of the Korean motto.

The Korean translation just says “Korea Monster Hunters.” Not that exciting, but it looks cool. Thanks for the compliment.

Guest
3 years 9 months ago

Dang. Gonna be hard to narrow down, my top-4 were Texas Bullmen (similar idea to what I wanted to submit…but I was too lazy/un-artistic to figure out how to do crossed-miniguns under the bull head), Texas Unnatural Guard, Librarians, and SMBH. But I think I’m gonna have to call it with Texas Bullmen. That’s my fav.

I think the Korean patch translates out to (roughly) “All your monster are flavorful and nutritious by moonlight”. Sorta.

Roper1911
3 years 9 months ago

here are the details on mine:

the first one of mine posted is Larry Freaking Correia INC, founded 1976 (my best guess at Larry’s birth year, I probably got it wrong, depends on when the last time he updated his ‘About Me’ page and what month he was born in.) was done purely for fun, and was actually the first patch I did-
why? Because he’s Larry Freaking Correia. and you had better look out,
‘cuz his left hand shoots lightning while his right shoots a .45…

the second is squad Red Falcon, the Latin translates literally ‘guardians ruin’ but the translation is ‘Keeper/guardian against ruin’ they operate out of an undisclosed state that Larry gets to choose, they specialize in vampires and other higher level undead, though they enjoy the occasional bout of zombies and a few rare lycanthropes too….

the third(and final) is Sammiel Corporation(drop the LLC), Sammiel corporation was founded in 1975 by an ex-army ranger who strangled a harpie and found out about the PUFF from some people from MHI, after deciding to strike it out on his own with a couple ex-marines and some army grunts.
the slogan originally was ‘the angel of death for all your demons’ but was changed to ‘you’ll fight were-tigers’ after a team took down a Siberian were-tiger in the kobuk Vally national park, that was- on top of being a were-tiger – also an illegal immigrant.

For MHI: I’d have to go with the Texas bull men, why? because I really, really want to see a 10 foot tall minotaur bash a zombie with a giant mallet.

for the MHI’s competitors- I’ll have to say its a tie between the Van helsing institute and Cerberus…. Nah, Cerberus wins, it’s original.

I probably like the first one most of all. Classy and it echoes the crossed cannons of Springfield Armory.
2, 4 and 5 are awesome, too.

Guest

I have to vote for S.T.A.R.S. of Texas, since that’s our patch… but since we’re really more about the back story than the patch…

the one I really like best is SCI… “When darkness falls, we were the ones who pushed it.”

Guest

Mine first of course… Team Kansas

Then SCI.
