Here's a piece I actually like:

I had to dig through the clown money to find a real quarter.

   Are you suggesting that Warduke wants to bone a dwarf?  Very dangerous stuff indeed.

   Hey, here's an idea...a new gamer fad...Warduke Trivia:

Q: Why does Warduke only wear half-chain?
A: He ate the other half this morning for breakfast.

Q: Why doesn't Warduke ever fight Godzilla?
A: Toho studios asked him not to make their star look bad.

Q: What would happen if Warduke ever lost a fight?
A: You die just for asking that question.

Q: What is Warduke actually duke of?
A: War, stupid.

Q: What happened to Warduke's original duchy?
A: He killed them for asking stupid questions.

Fun Fact:  The total distance in miles between earth and Pluto is exactly how many fools Warduke has on his kill sheet.

Fun Fact:  The Asteroid Belt actually used to be a planet until Warduke discovered it was blocking his view.

Q: Why is the Yukon sparsely populated?
A: They pissed-off Warduke.

Q: Why does Warduke carry a shield?
A: As a handy platter for displaying your head.

Q: Why does Warduke need to wear armor at all?
A: He doesn't, but the manufacturer pays him for endorsements.

Q: Why does Warduke carry a sword?
A: As a prop.  He mostly kills through sheer terror.

Q: Why does Warduke have a horned helmet?
A: He doesn't.  He's wearing Satan's scalp as a hat.

Q: Why doesn't Warduke wear pants?
A: His leg muscles are too strong for ordinary seams.

Q: Why is Warduke an animated character?
A: No photographer has the nerve to actually photograph him.

Q: Why does Warduke only appear on fantasy game products?
A: We need to pretend he doesn't exist or people might die of fear.

Q: Why are Warduke miniatures always sold in single packs?
A: He gets pissed off at other miniatures and slays them in the package.

Q: Why must Warduke miniatures must always be made of pure iron?  
A: He doesn't really care, but whimpy metals melt at the idea of holding his shape.

Q: Why isn't Warduke invited to appear on game shows?
A: Dude, after what happened on What's My Line?  No way!

Q: Why were Warduke coloring books discontinued?
A: The first few unfortunate children accidentally colored outside the lines.

Stuff like that.   :lol:

I suppose it's possible that these were promotional items, but the lack of nomenclature is suspicious.  Any insights?


Am I imagining things or is that a D&D bottle opener there on the left just below the Venger keychain?

Good one Mark.  :lol:

The knight on the dragon is pretty good, but I like the green maze with all the goofy critters.

A Beholder right when you enter, yeah that is a high level dungeon.
I much prefer that one over the knight.

SO now the question, they ever get used since you've had them?

Yeah, the only thing lacking is a bikini-clad woman atop those towels!

Those towels are super-cool now ... back in the day, though, I would have been terrified of taking one to the beach. I went to a pretty clique-y high school ... the sort of place where one could find one's ass kicked for bringing a D&D towel out into the open.

I sort of want one now, though ... it would make my wife roll her eyes like this:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:
