Soon as I saw it I was thinking about Diablo in Diablo 2.

Hi! Welcome to woot!

This shirt will be for sale again starting tomorrow--HERE--at $15. ALL shirts continue to be sold after the first day of sale. Every single shirt provides a link to its next-day-sale page in the first comment of its shirt-specific forum thread. A shirt will remain for sale (at $15) until reckoned.

To find out what shirts are available for sale on any given day--other than the obvious "shirt of the day" on the front shirt.woot page--please click on the "reckoning" link found in the top right corner of any shirt.woot page. All the shirt thumbnails in the reckoning are shirts that are still for sale. Click on the thumbnail or title and you will be taken to the shirt's order page.

its certainly based on the movies, look at the pillars in the halls of moria in the background of the shirt. that said, i dont remember if there is ever reference to andril in the movies. so, that could be the longsword he has, just not called by name. i had forgotten that he was carrying a named sword even as strider though.

edit: ah, just read an above poster that wiki'd it. its been a decade or more since i read the books, and i was thinking of the movie timeline and not the books. damn it, now i need to find my old copies of the books and reread them...again good thing im retired and have the time

Just a couple of hours ago at work I remembered that I wanted to go on woot this morning, because I was certain this shirt was going to win and even more certain that it would be sold out by the time I got home.

Sometimes I hate being right.

Rare occasions?
Excuse me, but they are usually awesome. It's rare occasions where they are bad.
The top 1-2 derby winners are always fantastic.

''Oh, long may my lady look
With a lantern in her hand
Before she sees my bonny ship
Come sailing homewards to dry land.''
Forty miles off Aberdeen
The water's fifty fathoms deep
There lies good Sir Patrick Spens
With the Scots lords at his feet.

I would have voted for this...

but it reminds me of the creature from Alien Resurrection and that alien is terribly disconcerting.

Great design, my favorite one in a loooong while.

Got my shirt in the mail today! (I bought it for $12 during the wootoff because I missed it the first day)
I am very impressed with the quality of the print! I thought the image online looked great, and it looks even better on the shirt than I expected!
It's definitely my favorite of the several woot shirts I have now.

I have yet to receive the one I ordered on 1/25/11. Here's the FedEx tracking info: http://www.fedex.com/Tracking?tracknumbers=02185456301087677468

Should I be worried?

Dallas/FW--and thus Woot!--was iced over/snowed under last week, and so pretty much shut down. The Fedex facilities in Dallas/FW actually closed for much of last week. In addition to last week's weather disaster there, today Dallas/FW is iced over again, slowing down whatever has opened up/started again. So even if Woot was able to get to work and get your shirts printed and packaged through last week, Fedex probably hadn't--and perhaps still hasn't?--even gotten around to picking them up to deliver.
Plus, now that they're back at work, they probably have a crazy-dense backlog of orders to work on printing up and getting out.
For recently updated, proper info from real staff, please read here.

This shirt brings to mind a sad question.

How many think of things from Onyxia's perspective, and how Onyxia must feel after a wipe?
