They have other ones than the retro '80s look. I don't like the 80s neon colors much, since I had to live through that era, but the simpler ones aren't so bad.
My husband and I were thinking about naming our future German Shepard Hogger, buying a box of the shirts, and when anyone asks why his name was Hogger, handing them a shirt.

Everquest - Released March 16, 1999. Although it became more popular than UO, UO still came first.
Richard Garriott took MUDs and tabletops and made them shinier. He created the visual and creative foundation for other MMOs to build upon when he created Ultima Online.

Aug 26th 2010 6:21PM My husband used to be the primary tank, but he got burned out on it. To give him a break from tanking all the time and get a decent tank to fill the void of good tanks, he leveled my paladin. Now we have:
Him: Pally, Druid, and Warrior in the works
Me: Pally and Druid
Aug 26th 2010 6:16PM Generally, I only have two official PuGs in my groups. The primary make-up is my husband, a friend and me. We rotate tanking, healing and DPS roles to speed up queue times.
After constantly getting Old Kingdom, it was my turn to tank, and we get Old Kingdom...again. I'm on my Druid, my husband is healing on his Shaman, and our friend is on his Hunter. My husband is sitting next to me mumbling about how bored he is healing when I'm bear tanking.
I whisper our friend to make sure he keeps MD up on me as much as possible (he forgets). I switch to bear form, and put on my Moonkin gear. I let my friend and the rest of the group know what I'm doing. I tank the entire run in caster gear.
The whole time, my husband is sweating bullets because he can't figure out why I'm taking so much damage. I was able to hold aggro the almost the whole run. The hunter's pet tanked a couple of trash mobs here and there.
After it was done, I do a /p and say "That ladies and gents is how you tank in caster gear." The party busts up laughing and my husband starts cussing up a storm. Good times.
Aug 25th 2010 8:40PM *drool* So ugly, it's cute! Getting one...I may not watch Blizzcon, but I'll have Deathy..oh who am I kidding, if I'm not working I'll have it up on the laptop...

Jul 5th 2010 4:21PM Gotta remove potions. Potions may be considered a reference to drugs. Haste = Speed, Health = PCP, Mana = Acid (cause of all the trippy lights and colors from casters), etc etc...
Oh, and food because eating in game is a reminder of the obesity problem in America.
Jul 4th 2010 6:17PM Stupidity is running rampant...not really racism...
Brings to mind the story from a while back when a petition went around to change Devil's Food Cake name because "it's racist" and Angel Food cake needed to be changed because the two together insinuated... well stupid stuff really.
We all bleed red, people. We all bleed red. Stupidity, though, transcends ethnicity and gender.
