Matchbox Templates

One of the tropes of pulp-era fiction was the matchbox-as-clue. The discovery of one on a body or during a search served as a handy plot token to send the protagonist off to the next scene of the story, be it a swinging jazz club or the storefront serving as the villain's headquarters. From a live action or tabletop gaming perspective they're an easy way to move the scenario along without being too railroady, and they make cool little mementos of the adventure. Mel's Stampz has templates for just about every possible variation of matchboxes imaginable.

Neat template. I'm going to have to find a reason to use this.
