    Default OOTS 10th Anniversary Calendar, 2014 Holiday Ornaments, and new T-Shirts

    I'm proud to announce new products for the holiday season.



    From Ookoodook, we have The Order of the Stick Tenth Anniversary Wall Calendar, featuring twelve all-new images looking back on scenes from the ten years of the comic's run—all re-imagined with new art:



    The art features two scenes from each of the main color compilations (including the current one) and one scene each from On the Origin of PCs and Start of Darkness. The calendar is 12" x 12" and printed on recycled paper with a sturdy cardstock cover.

    The pre-orders are going through Ookoodook exclusively, meaning this won't be available at your local gaming store. Right now, the calendar has not been released to the printer yet; I'm waiting until after Black Friday/Cyber Monday to place the order to ensure that I don't run out (or order too many). Once the order is placed, it should take 7 business days to print and 3 to ship to the Ookoodook warehouse—so I fully expect it to be in stock and shipped out well in time for a Christmas delivery, at least in the USA. But the main point is, if you think you want it, I advise pre-ordering it as soon as possible to make sure you get one, because when it sells out we won't be reprinting it.

    ------------------------
    We also have a variety of new products in our CafePress store, starting with the 2014 Holiday Ornaments:


    This year's Holiday Ornament: Tarquin vs. Julio.


    Continuing the Battle Ornament line we started in 2011, Elan vs. Nale.

    Then we have a few shirts based on the comic, particularly the recent desert arc. In all cases, the shirts are available in a wide variety of colors and styles, so the background colors you see here for each one is just one option. Click on the picture to see all the options for that design:


    Bloodfeast the Extreme-inator (with Belkar and Mr. Scruffy)


    Since psionics have entered the story, I thought it was about time we discussed it.


    He's not a bird, he's one of these.


    A handy field guid in case Tarquin breaks these out again.


    This image foreshadows your impending purchase.


    A giant monochromatic design of the OOTS in battle, available in six colors.

    Then, we have shirts based on the A Monster for Every Season miniature images that I've been making for Kickstarter.

    The first is designed to appeal to all those little girls who like girly things, like a rampaging war-rhinoceros.


    While the other ten are drawn directly from the set, pairing one adventurer with one mount. (Spoliered for length.)

    We also finally added our existing designs to iPhone 5 cases, only running like two years behind current models. Whoops.

    --------------------------

    I also wanted to mention that Giant in the Playground will be donating $2.00 for each calendar and $1.00 for each ornament purchased between now and the end of the year to disaster relief for the Phillippines, probably through Doctors Without Borders. So if you hate helping people, you might want to wait until January to buy something.

    ---------------------------

    Finally, sometimes CafePress will spontaneously drop a coupon code on me, so I'll reserve the next post for any that come my way. Though they've been doing that less and less for shops like mine, so there may not be any at all this year. I guess we'll see.

    Feel free to ask any questions you might have about the new products, too.

    Those two scenes from the calendar are the best things ever. I wish I could afford one.

    Well then, these are nothing short of awesome. As this is the first year I'm actually financially capable of supporting OotS, I'm going to go nuts with getting these! Thank you as always, Giant.

    I'm not sure I can bear that Druid. I suppose I'll try to grin and bear it, but it seems to be he's abusing his right to bear arms. All he's missing is a bear-d.

    Those look awesome!

    The art of the calendar is fantastic, I love the colors and the perspective.

    The new shirts are also great, the Blackwing and the princess one are my favourites.

    Princess on the Unicorn, that was badass. That's the way how a kiddy franchise could be adapted to adult fans.

    The calendar artwork is gorgeous. Well done, Giant.

    I appreciate the feminist-friendly "princess on unicorn."

    I'm predicting that the psionics shirt is going to become a point of reference for related discussions on the forum.

    The berserker on walrus is the funniest -- mostly because, as much as that berserker screams and waves his axe, that walrus is just gonna sit there and keep looking dignified.

    Damn, I'm going to have to get the blackwing t-shirt. and the calendar, since shipping to europe is pretty expensive, so once we pay the expedition costs, we may as well add some stuff.

    Probably going to have to until Christmas to get the money to even buy the shirts I want.

    The real question is: will the calendar reveal the title, colour, and character of Book 5? Dunh dunh DUNH!

    EDIT: Uh, it keeps telling me "Please copy the letters in the image" when I try placing my order on Ookoodook. I'm assuming it means the CAPTCHA, but I'm doing that.

    Hmmm. I don't have any access to Ookoodook's system, but if this keeps up (or if anyone else has similar problems), I can poke the folks there and let them know.

    I don't suppose you'd ever offer something other than shirts? I desperately need that princess on a unicorn war rhino, but already have more shirts than I can wear.

    If Unicorn Princess War-Rhino were to be available on baby garments, I guarantee you at least one sale. I need to put my 1-year-old in this.

    Sadly, I don't see anything like that in the store.

    I want the princess shirt for my daughter, but she's two. Rather than a 31" bust, she's working toward 31#. Any chance of expanded (or I suppose contacted) size options?

    There's a subcategory where the wording is changed to "When I grow up", and the baby/kids items are in there. http://www.cafepress.com/orderofthestick/10861435

    Personally I'd like to see the Princess on a Unicorn design on a mug. I'd love to take it to work and drink my tea out of it everyday.
