For the Geek who has everything

As I mentioned a few days ago, I made my first sale on Etsy this week. I don't have much up there, and I haven't been doing much marketing at all but I was still getting a bit upset that I hadn't sold anything, so it's cheered me up no end and prompted me to think about finally getting all the other bits and pieces I have planned made and listed.

At the moment everything I'm selling is the same - tabletop roleplaying sets with a set of dice, two mini pencils and an eraser in a handy bag. These went down really well when I made them for Christmas, so I thought I'd try them on Etsy. They've been favourited by quite a few people and I'm hoping that they'll take off more around Christmas time as people look for gifts. I have them in various colours and have plenty more dice sets waiting to be made up - if you'd one in a specific colour scheme let me know!

Whilst looking around at the competition for geek gifts, I found lots of fun items and I thought I'd share them with you, in case you're stuck for things to buy for the Level 20 Ranger in your life..

For all hard drinking, dice-rolling guys and girls, there's a very professional looking hip flask. This is one to bribe your GM with!

Most cultists like a bit of bling, and worshippers of the Destroyer of Worlds are no exception.

Just so you always know who's handing out quests, and who you need to take with you when you leave the tavern.

Geeks breeding. It shouldn't happen, but it does. Baby geeks are destined to grow up knowing the dice modifiers for every race in the DnD manual , but to give them an edge, you need to introduce them to polyhedral dice early. These felt toys are perfect for little ones, and don't carry the same health risks as hard D4 left on the floor.

Something borrowed, something blue, something icosahedral as the old saying goes. Cute for the geek bride, and handy if an impromptu game of 3rd ed D&D breaks out at the reception.

  1. As both a closet Magic fan and a D&D fan, I absolutely love the idea of the roleplaying set! Such a great gift idea for the geeks in our lives... or for ourselves :D Way to go on your first sale! Took me about a month and a half before I got any bites :)

  2. Congratulations on your first sale! I don't roleplay, but as a medieval geek I of course know a whole bunch of role playing-geeks. It seems to go hand-in-hand for a lot of people... =) I'll def tip them about your shop, and all the other fun stuff you linked to. I esp loved the felt dices for babies, so cute!
