"Dauerfahrkarte"? Or just "Fahrkarte"?

Also, I think we should mention some sort of version, like "Sarge-Beta",
or whatever it is going to be.

Well, it's alright to have the stuff pertaining to the Fahrkarte in
german, IMHO. The parts plotted in that matrix font should perhaps be
readable by others as well, though. How about replacing 'kostenlos' with
'0.00 EUR'? I'm not sure whether we want to deliever that message WRT
money. I don't know what we could do with the 'freiheit'. But in the
end, it's a german event. Instruction on the back side should be in
german and english, of course.

Wouldn't they fit on the dark grey part on the bottom? If not, we could
move that 'limited edition' stamp to the top-right corner perhaps?
