I'm fairly certain this applies in real life, too.

I almost bought it, but I think the back's design is funny, though less than attractive.

A one-sided version would be nice.

I agree. I felt like giving a history lesson in D&D but it made feel old an really geeky.

Meh. I've never played the games being referenced, so find little humor in the shirt. I think, though, that the artwork lacks a lot of the style and cleanliness that RamyB often applies to his shirts. It almost looks more like a reject from the "One Word" derby than anything else...

If I had the $ today, I'd get this shirt just for that reason! Of course, I am kind of a strange lady.

This would be great if you are spending the day with kids and know you will be the designated human pack mule who'll be weighed down with a diaper bag, jackets, and/or various other items.

Would probably also be good for when you tell a lie to get out of helping a friend move.

Loving the idea of the Skyrim reference but not the design itself, which is sad because I am a total Skyrim addict.

I just thought it was amusing that the first person to reply with an explanation used Skyrim and Fallout as examples. I've been an avid RPG gamer in both the PC and tabletop realm for about 15 years, but my mind automatically went to AD&D 2nd ed when I saw this shirt. I didn't even think PC platform. Ha.

Whew, I'm thankful some of you have memories that go back prior to Skyrim. I haven't even touched that one. I was getting concerned that I'm too old to be on woot! You darn kids these days...

That's because there are about 3-4 concepts that are repeated, ad nauseum. Even if the idea was already sold on Woot in another form (as seen here.

Female, and I went straight to Baldurs Gate, where you were always picking up crap and never letting it go. I had a building in every town where I would dump my loot that wasn't worth selling, but that I "might" need later. It was ridiculous.

I also played AD&D as well as most of the elder scrolls games. This is clearly a elder scrolls/skyrim shirt. All of the items shown are skyrim items, including the now representative-of-skyrim iron helmet with the horns pointing that direction. Also the joke, which is the trail of randomly tossed items, is a skyrim joke that wouldn't apply to D&D (although possibly to other video games) making fun of the fact that the only way to get rid of items is to "drop" them, in which case you actually toss them randomly, thereby leaving a trail of random crap.

Of course to people who haven't played skyrim, they could just as easily see it as a generic rpg shirt, so I guess it's well done in that way.

Scratch that, misread your post. You did say possibly in other video games.

I liked this on the tote and bought it, but on the chest of a chick with DDs, I'm just inviting trouble.

Also, every since I discovered the magic of console codes, it holds little meaning. ^^ (yes, I cheat...because I am terrible at Skyrim, but love it so)

My version of this thought process:

This would be great for my husband, when he's spending the day at a con as handler for my group of cosplay friends. He is always the designated human pack mule who'll be weighed down with "emergency" kits (sewing kit, body paint, electrical components, super glue), props (staves, sword, masks), purchases and/or other various items.

Yup. Totally in for one for him.

If you go over that weight limit, you're over encumbered and can't move as fast, so you're basically forced to drop enough weight to get under the limit and be able to move free and quick. Hence the trail of stuff behind you on your back.



Oh, shame. I was really hoping for a random cucumber reference.

Yeah, but you can't run while carrying 299 pounds of dead weight and then come to a slow walk when that number changes to 301.

Speaking as someone who still plays table-top D&D, I think this shirt is awesome and I'm totally getting one.

I do wonder why the arrows aren't stacking though. Maybe they're different kinds?

Why? Forty-two...you see, it doesn't work.
