I'm of the latter. Unfortunately, as I sit here and stare at it, I can't help but to wonder if I know enough about D&D to even explain the shirt to people. Given that I'm a girl and the whole design will be skewed (read: boobies) I'm guessing I need to pass.



Actually, I was a high school girl who hid in the corner.

There are more people that want to showcase they play DnD then I suspected.



See, I'm looking at it as "wow, it sold out at 10am? That's way fewer DnD and Star Trek geeks than I thought woot had!"

I'm just surprised the shirt is missing d10s. Also, I'm surprised it sold out so fast. I guess it is just the author (Wil Wheaton) that got people to buy it. I mean even the Penny Arcade shirt is better than this one, and a lot of that money goes to a good cause. Oh well.



How about we just admit that you can't have "cred" and play DnD, huh?

I'm somewhat thankful of this... that means less stuff for RobGlenn to use.

Yaye! First shirt.woot, first post. In for one ... y'know, earlier when they weren't sold out.

Honestly, I would have preferred 2d10 instead of the d20. Ah well, it's all the same to the clam.

Yep! It's really fun to sneak up behind people and "look" over there shoulder with one of the eyestalks. I just have to worry about running over people. Ironically, I can't see very well out of it.

Other than the fact that it was designed by Wesley Crusher, I cannot come up with any good reason to buy this shirt. Next.

I showed my husband and he said "Get me 2 of them" - when I tell him Crusher designed it, he will be even more my geek love slave.

Thanks Woot for delivering my geek man into my fiendish female plot.

By the way, I game too.

I feel like at least 100 of these shirts were sold to students of my undergraduate college...

But probably more, especially considering the caption on the message board of the file share system there today was "PTERODACTYLS! classes - woooooooooot oooooooooooofffff" and there is a d&d club there that reserves spaces and kicks people out of them who are studying!

No, by 'all', I was referring to the designers who actually create shirts. For any designer here who competes or creates dailies for woot, that can help pay bills or part of a house payment when things are tight. Especially if it sells out and the next day sales are rolling in. rdpollard has been around here a while and while s/he hasn't purchased many things, they critiqued the shirt, which s/he has every right to do here. Getting their head bit off by a newcomer who probably only came to woot to buy Wil's shirt, doesn't make his critique any less important.

The snip from a fan isn't needed here because someone felt like voicing their opinion on the shirt. Sure, go ahead, buy the shirt, support a famous person. On a smaller scale, this happened when Katherine from Ace of Cakes had 'Squarries' printed here (problem with hers was was, her piece was arguably worse than most dailies we've seen here). But people have a right to say what they will about the design. I may not always agree with what is said, but I will defend their right to shoot their mouth off and look like a friggin' jackass (I like that version of the original quote ;) ).

Wil, if he's just doing this for kicks, great. If he thinks he's a designer, I feel he should have the thick skin to deal with critiques... and if he doesn't have a thick skin already, something is horribly wrong.

I'm pretty sure he's doing it for kicks. From reading his blog, Wil gives the impression of being the sort of guy that not only can laugh (hard) at himself, but the kind of guy who likes to just do stuff for the sheer fun that it adds to his life.

Which is totally cool.

To be fair, this will be helping Wil pay his bills, too. He may be somewhat famous, but that certainly doesn't mean he's rolling in dough.

When I bought the shirts, I had no ideal who designed them.

My geek man love slave loves his d&d die, so I jumped on the buy it now button hard.

It wouldn't have matter who designed it.
It's cool.

I got mine early this morning, and have spent the last several minutes ROFLing at the comments.

I agree with those who would prefer the d10 over the d12, but I simply MUST have the d6 for my cleric's Holy Smite spell or my rogue's shortsword.

Also speaking as a large-chested woman, I generally buy the men's M, and after a wash, it fits perfectly. If it's a Random Shirt day and all the Ms are gone, then I get the WXL, and gently "stretch" the chest of the shirt before putting it on.

White powder? You must have been on coke. Powder comes off too easy. We colored ours with marker.

Original d4 had the numbers on the BOTTOM. You had to pick up the die to read it.



Yeah I am sure the ancient Egyptians had all sorts of funky dice. I expect if you go to Giza and flip one of those giant caltrops over there would be some number carved on the bottom. But if they put the numbers on the edges, we wouldn't have to do that.

I was talking about real D4 in the mid '70s to early '80s. You know just when civilization had peaked.

I mean kids today have it sooooo easy... They never had to figure out how many D6 to roll if their character fell 65 feet. I mean from 2nd edition on is pure wasteland.

And I bet half of 'em don't even know how to use a hex map, or know what happens when an Orion raider overloads all its engines, or why Tholians have ships shaped like... Well never mind. It isn't important now.

Marker? Seems like you'd get ink everywhere. Crayons worked well since you could then scrape off the excess and it'd just leave the cracks filled.

Holy koi! A lot older. Dice are prehistoric. And Theaetetus described the icosahedron in the 4th century BC.

He also gave proof that there are only 5 convex regular polyhedra (now known as the 5 platonic solids) of which decahedrons are NOT, so stuff your irregular-buttocked (and unnecessary) d10's, people. ;)

To my horror, i just noticed that the d4 on here is the ultra dorky kind with 3 number on each face, instead of just inscribing them on the flatted corners. Aaaaaagh! Wil! How could you?

Same for me. Ordered one XL shirt, now have two tracking numbers listed in the order.

Incidently neither one of them work.
