Description Postcard, often considered companion to the Intergalactic postage stamp.

The "Wish you were beer" postcard is an artifact found in Godville. It bears an image of a scrolling banner that says “Wish you were beer,” usually over the image of the picturesque territory where it was printed.

Details

Conceived as a “collect all 100”-style item by the enterprising W. H. O. Murphy, these artifacts are sold in packs of twenty to various tourism board offices, which sell them individually at a profitable mark-up to various tourists of the hero or monster persuasion. Each territory, town, and famous milestone[1] offers an associated postcard. As a result, collectors will sometimes hold swap-meets to trade duplicates for coveted additions.

The Bad Gateway Library[2] is thought to have the most complete collection of these postcards, with a catalogue numbering 432 out of a known 507.

Instructions for use

Write a message for a fellow hero or heroine, affix a stamp, and send it through the Godville Postal Service.
