Alrighty - this time I've got a clear RPG reference (the dungeonmaster). And everyone knows if you don't obey the DM, you're toast.

Where is the everyday part? Because of a campaign poster spoof?

I'm not sure they will print that imagery as it's directly from the movie (the design not your actual drawing).

It's not taken from the movie - it's modeled in a 3D design prog, and then rendered in 2D. The design of Barad Dur is Tolkien's, not Peter Jackson's, and since it's parody, it should be covered... (like past approved LotR shirts).

This isn't just a campaign poster spoof. It's a spoof of a My Little Pony spoof of a campaign poster. ;)

Actually, the "OBEY" meme is from Orwell's 1984

It's also shepard fairey's two most famous posters. Hope, and Obey Giant.

Love the design. I would buy this without the Dungeon Master line. I know it would make it off-topic, but just saying...

It originally didn't have the DM line on it, and got rejected (for that reason).

So, any RPG game/character+loose tie-in to "everyday life"=topical?

So, if I made a Darth Vader shirt in a similar style, I am on-theme?

How do dungeonmaster and Sauron mix? That's where I'm a bit confused.

I have to agree. Started as a pretty rad design, but it lost something after being shoe-horned into the topic.

The only thing that kills this for me is "the dungeonmaster." Get rid of that and you have a instant buy.

That was the original design, but it was rejected. I'll resub the original someday when it fits better...
